View Full Version : Equalizer implementation in SS or SB2?

Anyone know if there is a way to implement a good digital equalizer function (7 band or 13 band) in Slimserver or SB2 firmware which could be set differently for each player settings?

I don't have a preamp or digital eq in my system so this would be great for me.

If you have any thoughts on how this could be done/if this could be done, let me know.

I have entered a request into bugzilla #2133

Something I've looked into, but not got very far, is using BruteFIR in
the slimserver decoding chain, i.e. specified by convert.conf (or
better, slimserver-convert.conf.

This would allow all sorts of filters to be specified including Dynamic
Room Correction (DRC).

I believe you can have BruteFIR running as a daemon and have a dynamic
filter that depends on an external interface to set parameters, i.e.
changing equalisation in real-time.

But, like I said, I've not got very far along the road of checking it out.

I looked into this and it was way too complicated for a user to try and implement.

Does dean have any idea if it could be developed by and incorporated into slimserver and be able to be set in the sb2 similar to volume?

It's definitely possible, but not something we're working on actively.

So dean, what types of bribes would be appropriate to implement this?

Beer?
Pizza?

Pretty please?
