Where has the vocal eq preset gone?

Post by ryanc » Sat Apr 07, 2012 10:08 pm

Hi, I hope this is the right place to post. In the previous version of audacity I had the most amazing eq preset I think it was just called "vocal". I'm pretty sure it came with it, and it isn't there on the new version. Does anyone know of the preset I'm talking about and how to get it back?

There was never any such preset shipped with Audacity.

Whatever curves you had in a previous 1.3 version of Audacity should be at EQCurves.xml in Audacity's folder for application data. That folder has different locations according to your operating system; you can find out the location here:

Did you move EQCurves.xml somewhere else when you obtained the new version of Audacity?

Yeah, I reset my laptop because it was running slow and so when I came to install audacity on it, I had to use the new version. I don't know where I could have got it from then, but I'm pretty sure I only ever downloaded the program and plug-ins from the official website. It didn't just have the vocal one, it had guitar makes I think and one called "acoustic", there was about 10 in total, including some of the ones that are there in 2.0.

If you are on Windows Vista or 7, do you use System Restore? If so try right-clicking over the current EQCurves.xml in Explorer > Restore previous versions.
