Geek Software of the Week: PC Equalizer!
I love this! I needed a true “live” equalizer for my new microphone, the venerable Shure SM7B! I needed one that would allow me to adjust “on the fly” and tweak my recording and use for streaming as well. This is what I found, it works, and it is totally free and Open Source!
