Save it again with a different name if you haven't done that and see what happens.

What happens if you use one of the pre-set EQ's?

Yeah me too like what the heck man. I saw someone else had this problem and fixed by reinstalling the driver but i tried it so dunno. I tried other EQs like equalizer apo, profound csharp but they sound bad .. i need to know where the default presets are stored in the registry or in the install file so maybe i could edit them, i know custom one is stored in MMdevices/Audio/Render/{xxxx}/FxProperties . It's like it won't save, like it was unlocked and i didn't lock it so something changed it.. Thing is the same happened on my old pc with different hardware so it's probably realtek

Thanks for the help anyways

Multiple users have been having this problem with 16k bar only as it resets everytime you click refresh on soundcloud or open a game. Other bands work fine.

Yes, experiencing the same problem since a month or two.

I play a song or use an app, tweak the EQ while it's playing, save it as a preset, then it remains ok...... until I select a new song in Youtube or new app and the EQ sound goes back to default even though it still shows my custom EQ name and graphic EQ illustration.

I open Realtek Sound Manager, click Reset EQ, then re-select my custom EQ preset and it's ok again while the music/audio plays... until I select a new song or app and the EQ goes back to default, whilst still showing my custom EQ name, etc.

Even pausing a song on youtube, or simply scrubbing a track in youtube, resets the EQ sound after the song re-buffers and starts playing again.

Incredibly frustrating. I always have to have Realtek Sound Manager loaded up on screen and manually set the EQ preset every single time I play a song, scrub a track, or start an application that also uses audio.

for me the solution is to use the 8k instead of 16k bar

Just finally fixed it by re-installing old Realtek audio drivers that came with the motherboard rather than the latest drivers. I also took a backup of my custom EQ presets (registry) before I did so, and pasted them into the new registry after reinstalling, and everything works.

Regards the 16KHz bar in the graphic EQ, for me it happened when ANY bar(s) were changed, regardlessly. Normally I like to subtley scoop out the 125 and 250Hz bars to make the sound less boomy and muddy. I didn't touch the 16KHz bar in those cases, but the EQ still reset when a new song/app was loaded.

Anyway, fixed now. Best advice is just to try reinstalling drivers.
