78 EQ xml file

I had Audacity on my old XP system and , because of the type of music I play - rockabilly - used the old 78 EQ settings that used to be part of Audacity years ago. I have an XML file that installs the settings into Audacity called ‘EQ Record’ that was sent to me by the Audacity team years ago but I can’t remember how to install it into the program! Can anyone out there give me any advice on this ? BIG thanks in advance if you can :slight_smile:

This page from the Audacity Wiki should help you: http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/78rpm_playback_curves

Hi ,
Thanks but not quite what I needed - the XML file I have has various presets for Decca, Columbia Microgroove etc, I need to know how to load it into the Audacity program. It used to be part of the program but not any more - it can be done as I did do it before but I just can’t remember how :frowning:
Thanks in advance for any help,
EQRecord.xml (10.2 KB)


Just in case anyone else wants them I have found the email Gale Andrews sent me with instructions on how to do it :slight_smile: This is it :-

By the way I forgot, if you actually need the exact former presets

you had before, you can still get them

What you want to do is right-click > Save As the link in yellow


then in
Audacity’s Equalization Effect, press Save/Manage Curves…
and import the
downloaded XML file. See:
