Equalizer in real time?

Really need to be able to do this or create a tape hiss coming tool.

Audacity does not apply effects while recording.

You can find VST Equalizer plugins that let you play already recorded audio and adjust the effect knobs to hear the result. Similarly with VST noise reducers.


The “Noise Reduction” effect is probably the best way to combat tape hiss, provided that the hiss is not extreme, though it is not a real-time effect. More info: http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/noise_reduction.html
