Equalization Errors

Hey guys I am having a problem with equalization on Audacity. Before it was working fine but now everytime I use Equalization an error comes up

error loading eq curves from file
error message says:
no element found at line 1

Then it goes on tho the EQ screen and it only has the option of an UNAMED EQ curve. Where is the bass boost and treble boost and all the other ones that came as a preset?

Thanks, Juan (Windows Professional 7, Audacity

It seems that the “EQCurves.xml” file in Audacity’s folder for application data has become corrupted.

The simplest solution is to delete that EQCurves.xml file then Audacity will use the default curves in the “EQDefaultCurves.xml” file that should be in the Audacity installation folder.

So navigate to UsersAppDataRoamingAudacity . If you cannot see that folder, show hidden files and folders. As soon as you delete EQCurves.xml in Audacity’s folder for application data, Equalization will show its default curves again.

Note that you will lose any custom curves that you made. If you want to retain any custom curves you made, you will have to find and fix the error in the EQCurves.xml file. You can attach that file here if you need to do that. Please see here for how to attach files: https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/how-to-attach-files-to-forum-posts/24026/1
