I want to adj. EQ while listening to play back?

Hi All,

I would like to be able to listen to the play back, and adjust the EQ live, or on the fly.

Is this possible?

Thanks for your help.

Audacity doesn't do anything in real time except record or play back, so the answer is no, but the ability to adjust EQ on the fly is one of the most popular Feature Requests.

See this topic http://forum.audacityteam.org/view...+the+fly#p126268

So would I, but no it's not possible.
However you can use "Preview" on the Equalizer effect.
To increase the length of the preview to a more useful duration, go to:
"Edit menu > Preferences > Playback".

Thanks for your replies,

would it be possible for someone to create an add-on EQ that could be added to Audacity,
that would allow us to adjust the EQ on the fly?

All the best, Dan

This is where you say, "I'm a programmer and not doing anything. I'd be happy to develop a real-time equalizer module for Audacity -- as a volunteer, of course."

You can do that on Linux using any equalizer that supports Jack.

On Windows it may be possible by using Virtual Audio Cable to route the output of Audacity to the input of a standalone EQ, then back into Audacity where the EQ'd audio can be recorded to a new track. Virtual Audio Cable is a non-free commercial product but there is a free demo available. I've not tried doing this, so if you try it, please let us know how you get on.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the idea, but it sounds a bit above my skill level.

Why cant life be a little less complicated?

All the Best, Dan

At least increasing the Preview time is easy to do ;)
