    Does LMS have a smart software equalizer (plugin)?

    Hey.

    Is there a way to make LMS use genre-specific equalizer settings (e.g. boost certain frequencies) for specific players?
    Example: if player1 plays classical music nothing happens. But if the next track is genre = Rock it would boost the bass or something like that on player1. Then I could configure a bunch of EQ settings for different genres for each player.

    I know that (custom-)convert.conf can be used to assign general equalizer-like settings to specific players. But as I understand it that setting then applies to all tracks played on that player.
    Since LMS is all about configurability and customization I thought I'd ask if something like that is already possible or if it can be done at all (i.e. the genre-specific part).

    Thank you.

    You could extend the solution you linked to by having a script which reads the genre from the file and sets the EQ parameters for sox accordingly.
