Windows 7: Equalizer for Windows?

05 Sep 2013   #21

Windows 7 Professional x64

For anyone wanting to find the EQ settings... (It's only a 10 channel EQ, but better than nothing :P)

1) Go to your toolbar and right click on the sound icon and choose playback settings
2) Select your playback device, and click settings
3) Go over to Enhancements and look through the scroll-down menu
4) Under there, an option for "Equalizer" will probably be unchecked. Check it, and go down to the ellipses at the bottom of the screen.

*NOTE* I found that you can't do EQ settings on HDMI outs, but the sound out on the board (maybe even audio cards. I don't have one to check) works fine.

It has some presets, but who doesn't like mixing their own feed? :P

The realtek driver does have an equalizer, it's just not default display:

System-wide equalizer for Windows 7
Hey guys, First of all this is my first post here, so don't get angry at me for potentially embarrassing myself. I've been looking for some time now for a system-wide graphic equalizer. Basically I play a lot of internet radio on my laptop, so the WMP EQ won't do. Also, it doesn't work on games...
