Equalizer for Pulse Audio

There’s a really cool equalizer for Pulse Audio which can be installed by adding a repository. Its a system wide equalizer hence no matter what media player you use, you will be able to utilise this setting.

The image below is a screenshot of the same:

How to install:

Open the Terminal (Accessories > Terminal) and type in the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:psyke83/ppa

Next type the following in the Terminal:

sudo apt-get update

Finally, type the following (in the Terminal of course)

sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-equalizer

Thats it. You can access the Pulse Audio Equalizer from the Sounds & Video menu.

Update: The creator of this Equalizer has added a new .deb file for both 32 and 64 bit versions of Ubuntu 10.10, simply click on the following link and install: Download Link



Equalizer for Rhythmbox

Thanks to Ubuntuforums I came to know of a really cool plugin which enables a 10 band equalizer in Rhyhtmbox.

To add this equalizer, simply copy paste the following code in the terminal (Accessories > Terminal):

mkdir -p ~/.local/share/rhythmbox/plugins && wget -O – | tar xvjf – -C ~/.local/share/rhythmbox/plugins

To activate this plugin, launch Rhythmbox, go to Edit > Plugins and the check Equalizer. The equalizer’s 10 band setting is available from the Plugins menu.

Try it out. Its a really cool feature.
