Zoom Button in Equalization Window?

I like Audacity’s EQ but the view is kind of restrictive, why does it let you adjust the db range but not select a certain range of frequencies to zoom in on? With a 1024x768 screen and a linear frequency scale, wouldn’t that mean each pixel of the screen is 44 hz apart? For some reason Audacity lets you resize the window to ridiculous lengths and this works for what I’m talking about but it’s likely to crash if I make it too wide, plus it involves a lot of dragging although I can maximize to get the preview button back in reach. My suggestion is that the EQ window should work just like zooming in on an track, where you can select a certain range of time/frequency and db (also it would be nice if you didn’t have to have both positive and negative values in view at all times, maybe this is fixed but in my version I’m required to at least have the db zoomed out to -10, which is pretty annoying too)

sorry if some of that made no sense, but the gist of it is I think the EQ window should look just like the main window and allow you to zoom/select an arbitrary range because this would make it about 10000 times more useful

While were at it, how about a multi-band parametric EQ?

I think this is available as a Nyquist plug-in. Unfortunately Nyquist effects do not have “Preview” available, but you can always apply to a short section and use Ctrl+Z to undo.

Found this Ladspa plug-in, but not tried it yet. It may only work on Linux. FIL-plugins-0.3.0.tar.bz2 (17k) http://www.kokkinizita.net/linuxaudio/downloads/index.html
