PulseAudio Equalizer sink

I still recommend it if you use PulseAudio...

So, apparently, Debian is now "bleeding edge". After all, that package is available in stretch.

https://packages.debian.org/stretch/pul … -equalizer

OK, the only thing I want is the output sink, I don't care about the GUI equalizer. I used the Arch Wiki entry on PulseAudio to get this going, but I'm tweaking the instructions here.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pu … _Equalizer

1) In stretch, buster or sid, install pulseaudio-equalizer...

sudo apt install pulseaudio-equalizer

2) Edit /etc/pulse/default.pa and add the following...

### Load PulseAudio equalizer and D-Bus modules
load-module module-equalizer-sink
load-module module-dbus-protocol

3) Reboot.

4) Start an audio source (anything, a YouTube video, whatever).

5) Open pavucontrol (on BL, W-v)

6) On the default "Playback" tab, toggle "Built-in Analog Stereo" to "FFT based equalizer on Built-in Analog Stereo".

That's it. It will sound softer. Turn up your volume a bit to match the old sound.

Removal is doing that all in reverse. monkey


Removal instructions...

sudo apt purge --autoremove pulseaudio-equalizer

Optional, delete the module entries from default.pa. Not necessary, the modules won't load because pulseaudio-equalizer has been removed.

Reboot.

Adding PulseEffects to the above setup, it's nice...

Re: PulseAudio Equalizer sink

Can both pulse equalizer and Pulseeffects be installed together without any adverse effect?
