Foobar2000 & MathAudio Room EQ


The frequency response of your room is very different in every point of the room. “Good” equalization in one point can worsen the sound in the neighboring point. Single-point equalization is not reliable and cannot be used in a professional room correction system. On the other hand, multipoint equalization is not simple; both the volume and the phase of the testing signal are very different in different points of the room. Simple averaging is not applicable. MathAudio Room EQ applies a state-of-the-art multipoint correction algorithm which ensures the best possible improvement in every point of the listening area.

  • Corrects deficiencies of room acoustics (multipoint compensation).
  • Corrects acoustic imperfections of speakers.
  • Avoids the pre-echo (pre-ringing) problem of conventional convolver-based room correction systems. The absence of pre-echo ensures the neutrality of the sound.
  • Works in rooms, halls and outdoor venues of any size.
  • Works with zero latency. Perfect for live performances and studio monitoring.
  • Doesn’t delay the audio track when playing video.
  • Corrects both amplitude and phase components of frequency response.
  • Quells resonance peaks of frequency response while leaving the deep notches.
  • Avoids the overcompensation which happens in conventional linearizing room correction systems.
  • Manually adjustable level of compensation allows one to reach the maximum transparency of the sound.
  • Supports full range of sample rates from 44,056 kHz up to 384 kHz. All sample rates are supported without resampling to avoid any possible loss in quality.
  • Includes a custom target curve feature.
  • Applies 64-bit signal path throughout.
  • Works with USB measurement microphones (e.g. MiniDSP UMIK-1 or Dayton Audio UMM-6) or standard measurement microphones (e.g. NADY CM100 or Dayton Audio EMM-6).
    Supports microphone calibration files.
  • Applies a patented method of frequency response correction.

DRC Designer ~ Optimize Audio Rooms


Digital Room Correction Designer was created to ease the process of creating and loading room correction filters for use with two channel stereo systems. DRC Designer includes Denis Sbragion’s DRC for creating room correction filters, John Pavel’s Convolver VST for playing music through the filters, and Simple Automated IR Measuring Tool by Denis Sbragion and Edward Wildgoose for creating the impulse response files needed by DRC.

rePhase ~ Loudspeaker Phase Linearization


rePhase is a FIR generation tool for building fully linear-phase active crossovers with arbitrary slopes.

It also let you manually compensate for the phase shifts of your loudspeakers and existing crossovers, be it active or passive.

Once generated, the FIR can be applied using any hardware (openDRC, miniSHARC, Najda, …) or software (foobar, convolver, JRiver, …), stereo or multi-way convolution engine.

Equalizer APO ~ A Windows System Equalizer


Equalizer APO is a parametric / graphic equalizer for Windows. It is implemented as an Audio Processing Object (APO) for the system effect infrastructure introduced with Windows Vista.
Features:

  • virtually unlimited number of filters
  • works on any number of channels
  • very low latency, which makes it suited for interactive applications
  • low CPU usage
  • modular graphical user interface
  • VST plugin support
  • integrates into Voicemeeter (www.voicemeeter.com)

Equalizer APO is best used in conjunction with Room EQ Wizard (www.roomeqwizard.com ), because it can read its filter text file format.
