Quality EQ apps for ipod/iphone/ipad - Page 30

post #436 of 442
I like EQ10 but I can't seem to find how to access my shared full iTunes library (6000 songs) over Wi-Fi like the built-in "Music" app in IOS7 can. It can apparently only access the music that is physically on the iPad.

Is there any other gapless eq app that can do this yet?

I also tried Equalizer and EQu. They can't do this either. Plus, those two show music from the iCloud that they can't play even though Show All Music is turned off in Settings.

These apps are pretty useless right now.

Why can't someone come up with an EQ app that can insert itself into the stock Music app? Or into the audio path so any app will be able to use it?

Can Android devices do any of that?

As it goes beyond 15K Hz you hear lower frequency 'zipping' sounds.


How recent have you tested this?  I know that newer builds have been changing the way they do interpolation, now using Hermite polynomials instead of simple linear interpolation.  Saratoga pointed this out to me in a thread some time back.  Aliasing is tied to the interpolation method, so as Rockbox migrates their interpolation method, this sort of thing might change. 

 

I use Rockbox EQ often for lower quality headphones, and generally am satisfied.  I really like the sound of the Onkyo app on iOS, though, especially when using its 64-bit setting.  The EQ interface for the Onkyo app is not as good, though -- I prefer traditional parametric controls over a "draw your own curve" type interface.

Are there any EQ apps that can access music files stored on one of these -

None of the EQ apps seem to be DLNA capable. Likewise none of the DLNA player apps have an EQ function. Catch 22.

Ideally there would be a standalone EQ app that can EQ whatever is playing and then you could pair it with a player app of your choice.

Btw for those that might find this thread through a search, CanOpener now has eq.

My favourite EQ app at the moment on iOS is EQ10. I really think EQ10 is a great sounding EQ app on my iPhone 5S. It also as a stereo width function that makes the music warmer and more livelier and the EQ can either be 5 band parametric or standard 10 band.

Ditto. I've tried about 20 apps and EQ10 is my fave. Used to like Equalizer but their new interface I don't like at all.

I actually like CanOpener for both eq and cross feed.

CineXPlayer has a "Dolby" option that is interesting.

The onkyo app has an interesting eq, but I don't use it sine I use CanOpener.
