No matter how many times I edit, shift, or rearrange it, adding Equalization to my chain always uses the default:
"CurveName=“unnamed” FilterLength=“4001” InterpolateLin=“0” InterpolationMethod=“B-spline”
What I want is a Treble Boost chain followed by a Bass Boost chain but neither “sticks”. I just get that same unchangeable default. Is this a known bug? Am I missing something?
If you use the current Audacity 2.1.2 from http://www.audacityteam.org/download/windows then you can apply a Chain containing a treble boost Equalization command followed by a bass boost Equalization command if you first save the treble boost and bass boost curves as named curves then choose that named curve from the “Select Curve:” dropdown when setting the parameters for the Chain command.
There is a bug that if you set the curve shape you want for the Chain using the “unnamed” curve, then change the unnamed curve afterwards (by adding another Chain command with a different unnamed curve, or by changing the unnamed curve from Effect > Equalization…) then the Chain command(s) will disregard the curve in force when you set up the command and just use the current “unnamed” curve.
So unless you use an already saved “named” curve in the Chain, you are limited to one Chain command only, and you can only use Effect > Equalization… from the menus if you choose a “named” curve from the “Select curve” dropdown.
Don’t use the Manage > Save Preset feature and tell the Chain command to use the Preset because that is not yet implemented for Chains, as far as I can tell.
