We all love to listen to some tunes on our windows systems now and then. Even though smartphones and other mobile devices have become the norm to plug some headphone in, the superior DAC output of windows (or any) PC gets most of us to come back to it, when the occasion calls for it.
If you are a windows user and like to tune your music with some equalizers, here is a list I’ve to compile sorting out the 5 best among them. So take your pick, from this 5 best equalizer software for Windows OS, and enjoy an enhanced audio experience.
Top 5 Equalizer Software
Any EQ geek would know about the Viper series of free equaliser software for all kinds of devices. I enjoy Viper4Android on my rooted phone. When I discovered that this incredible tool is also available for windows, I was thrilled as anyone would be. It equips you with a ton of awesome resets, so you don’t have to fiddle with any controls manually if you don’t want to. My personal favourite is the ViPER XClarity.
There is also ViPER XBass, Surround, compressor, convolver and more. All you need to do is select the preset you want to apply and hit OK. There are also some modes for your audio profile to set to, such as movie, music mode and freestyle. It’s a fun and intuitive way of playing around with the sound output of your system.
I genuinely believe you can unlock the full potential of the DAC on your device, and Viper is one of the software that will let you do just that.
This is one of the free graphical equalizer available for windows OS, which allows out to tweak the sound settings through your speakers and other audio devices. There are intuitive presets like rock, pop, hip-hop, and fun mix us like karaoke. This preset mixes and produces new types of mixed frequency sounds.
The equalizer can be manually tuned to one different available frequency bands. What’s interesting is that you can simulate different environments too, such as a concert, a forest, large room, underwater and a lot more. If you have a different arrangement for your speakers, such as a traditional binary pair or a surround sound set up, there are built-in sound profiles that suit each one of these options.
The surround sound mode called the 5.1 ch preset allows for even more tuning such as bias enhancements and change the frequency playing from the subwoofer. You can also toggle it as you wish. Even if you don’t mess around with any of these settings, the default mode is still pretty good on this software. Many systems also come preinstalled with Realtek audio, which is excellent.
This is one of those great software tools which you can install on a 32-bit or a 64-bit system without hassle. What’s cool with this equaliser is that you can select your custom configuration file, if you don’t want to use the system configuration file for your audio preferences.
You can automatically set the default EQ for your room with the help of the Room EQ wizard. Select the measure option and wait for the bar to finish. Once this wizard completes, it will show you a graph of the obtained frequency response. Set the EQ for your room by selecting the save option. You can even set the equaliser type if you know what you are choosing. Or else, just do what I did. Select each one and see what changes it does to the resulting audio output. It’s the rookie way of finding out stuff.
Once you are finished with all the settings, you can head over to the final save on the home window of the software.
This one has a pretty funky looking interface compared to others in this list. It even gives you the option to select from different audio effects such as Ambience, Hyperbass, 3D surround, etc.
The window is shaped like a smartphone which is entirely different than what we are used to seeing with other equalizers and their traditional square window UIs. Everyone can appreciate a fresh take on something every once in a while. Along with the exciting sound profile names like Mega Bass, Techno-big sound, Light processing, it’s a super fun app to use on your desktop/laptop. Check this one out if you want a little bit of spice with your traditional software looks.
Unusual name, but a great software. It is an incredibly intuitive tool for anyone who wants to fine tune the crap out of their audio files. It has a whopping 32 band setting for different audio bands. I notice that when you do a custom setting once and then close the app when you’re done with it, the app remembers your last preferences and preserves the slider positions as you left them. Pretty cool, huh!
Unlike most equalisers, this DeCiSoft equaliser does not require its playlist or music queue to be populated first, to apply the effects. It works with most popular music players such as Winamp. So you can play your music with this software running in the background. It will automatically detect the audio playing and apply the settings which you have selected in the interface.
