It took a few tries to find a good VST Equalizer, there's a lot out there. In the end I chose ReaEQ
, it is very simple but has the essentials. It has allowed me to get a far more accurate EQ
and has changed my music for the better. I might look into doing a system wide EQ in the future, but for now this will do.
For anyone who finds this, here are the installation instructions:
1. Go to the VST plugin page
and download it
2. Now place the file in this directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\MusicBee\Plugins
3. Next go to the ReaEQ download page
, download the suite in 32-bit and install it
4. You can now open MusicBee and go to 'Edit Preferences' (ctrl + O)
5. Select 'Plugins' and under 'vst host' you will see 'source folder for the VST plugins', paste C:\Program Files (x86)\VSTPlugins
(ReaEQ install location) in the bar beneath
6. Finally, restart MusicBee and go to the EQ/DSP. Enable ReaEQ and then double click it. You can now start adjusting ReaEQ but make sure to have the built-in EQ disabled before playing music.
Ok, cool. I'm just surprised it's not part of the base app.
I'm surprised you consider something like this a base requirement.
All kidding aside, let us know how you fare using a VST eq. for this?
While it only took 15 mins for me to learn about VST and find a good plugin, others might find it overwhelming and difficult. That's why I would like to see it be a base feature. Anyway, thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
You could try the free TDR Nova (https://www.tokyodawn.net/tdr-nova/) which I can confirm works with the MB VST host. Be sure you are using the 2.4.1 bass_vst.dll from the latest MB 3.3 patch, and have the currently posted MB VST host plugin installed (https://getmusicbee.com/addons/plugins/16/vst-effects-support/) .
What exactly is bass_vst for?
