Re: Sound enhancements in Windows 10?

Well, then I don’t know.

Hey Anders...

I guess it's possible? But doesn't seem likely to me. Even my old
soundblaster from 12 years ago could do enhancements on the fly through a
control panel interface that was easily usable (though configuring specific
parameters did present an accessibility challenge...)

Maybe this only work with newer audio devices.
So maybe the hardware is to old even though its from 2018.

Hello everyone.

I'm running Windows 10 20H2. I have onboard audio on this desktop,
listed as Realtek high Definition Audio, so I assume that's what it is
- the corresponding drivers are also installed - they're the latest
ones I could find from both cnet and, dated back to 2018 I

Now, I keep reading about these sound enhancements available in
windows 10, ranging from "room correction", to "bass boost", "virtaul
surround" and even an equalizer. I'm especially interested in getting
a fairly low level (as in at the operating system/soundcard level)
equalizer to work, as I'm not convinced that the one in winamp is that
great, and the VLC one is a pain in the butt to use, and besides, I
listen to a lot of stuff on youtube nowadays.

But, under "sound, realtek and speakers: realtek" properties, sound
enhancements, I only have one option listed - "loudness equalization".
Sound effects are enabled. So I'm wondering - where are all those
other options I keep hearing about? Why don't I have them? Are they
just not available to realtek users? I've done some google searches
and came up with a lot of people complaining about their sound
enhancements tab missing altogether, but that's not what's happening -
I have the tab, there's just only that single "loudness equalization"
box to check and that's it. To me that's a useless feature. I want the
other ones. :P

Can anyone offer any suggestions? Or am I just out of luck?
