So many equalizers...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
OK. So, depending on what I'm doing, I might have four equalizers "available" at one time. I'm not a big audiophile, and don't need the absolute best when I'm listening to/watching/playing something.

My question is, can I just turn all of them off and just have a "master" equalizer, like my sound card's? When I have them all on, I don't know which one is acting as the "primary", which ones are just along for the ride, or the "weights" between them, like "does changing this on this equalizer change it as much as in this one?"

Help!

Any that are in the path apply their effect fully. How do you get four in a row? The most I have is one in the application and one in the soundcard driver. If you have two or more applications open and playing sound then their own EQ(s) would apply to just the sound from that application, then the "master" EQ in the soundcard driver would apply some more EQ to that after its mixed the sound from the different applications together.

Depending on the specific equalizer they should add or subtract the same amount if you set them at the same level (+/- some dB's), that isn't guaranteed though. You can have good and bad equalizers, although it may be hard to tell a difference between them.
