I got "easy-Q" working through the "George Yuhong VST wrapper".... Is this the best VST to use to get Electri-Q working? I noticed that there is another one but I don't know which is the best?

 

But TBH the "easy-Q" program has a horrible interface, it is in a tiny window that you cannot resize and is fiddly to use, has no option to undo etc.

 

Trying to get Electri-Q working now... I will post back if I get it working...

Mine currently, and always has been working. If you experienced it crashing, that's probably because you used "VST 2.4" wrappers rather than George Yhong's wrapper. VST 2.4 always caused me problems.

 

I believe someone posted instructions for setting up electri-q with a vst wrapper a couple of days ago.

meh not really worth finding imo. Stock FooBar does more than enough for me :3

I'm kinda signing out of this thread, too many repetitions and I don't own an HE-400 anyway. See you in the 500 thread.

I got Electri Q working in Foobar by using the "poshopit edition"...

 

Is there any way to make the window bigger? It is really small and fixed size, makes it difficult to use.

Jeez this thing is hard to use..... Trying to do a basic EQ and it is not simple!..... Maybe I should just stick with the 31 band default equaliser!

At first glance it may seem complicated but it's not really. Just click on the line and it will create points which you can adjust. Double click a dot for finer accuracy, Also if you go into Menu > Skin > Gain Range you can adjust up to 30 db. By default it's only 10 db.

 

Also I don't think you can adjust the window size.

To me the HE400 at default settings is far too sibilant and "tizzy" in the treble, literally hurts my ears..... maybe because you are listening to rock etc. I would rather use different headphones for those type of genres. Not sure what you mean about the "trying to get a downward sloping line" lol.


Downward sloping line literally translated:

 


Flat sucks!

Basically I didn't like either Easy-Q or Electri-Q, but a little experimentation should sort either of them out. I am actually not that big into Foobar - its just that other media players are even worse.

I'm not that big into eq so :/

The new research by harmon says something like a diagonal line sloping downward 10db from 20hz to 20khz is ideal, but as to what kind of compensation, I have no idea.

Not sure I would want it that extreme.... The reason for the "downward sloping line" is due to the HE400 frequency response.... the EQ I did  probably looks more like this.....
