Audio Effects for PipeWire Applications
  6 reviews

Easy Effects is an advanced audio manipulation tool. It includes an equalizer, limiter, compressor and a reverberation tool, just to mention a few. To complement this there is also a built in spectrum analyzer.

Easy Effects is the successor to PulseEffects. Easy Effects only supports PipeWire's audio server. PulseAudio users should instead use PulseEffects.

Because Easy Effects uses the default PipeWire sound server it will work with most, if not all, applications you use. All supported applications are presented in the main window, where each can be enabled individually.

Besides manipulating sound output, Easy Effects is able to apply effects to an input device, such as a microphone. This is, for example, useful in audio recording, but it also works well during voice conversations.

When Easy Effects is launched it will conveniently remember the configuration used in the last session. It is also possible to save all the current settings as profiles.

Easy Effects will not launch on Linux Mint 21.X since the audio system it uses is Pulse Audio NOT PipeWire which Easy Effects needs. Use Pulse Effects until Linux Mint 22 that will likely use PipeWire.

Après avoir suivi ce guide ( pour installer PipeWire dans Linux Mint 21.1, j'ai installé ce flatpak et ça fonctionne. Le seul problème, c'est que la fenêtre d'Easy Effects doit rester ouverte (on peut la minimiser) pour que les effets soient appliqués. Dans les préférences d'Easy Effcts, "Lauch Service at System Startup" ne peut pas être activé et "Shutdown on Window Closing" ne peut pas être désactivé. Le message d'erreur est le même dans les deux cas : "Unable to get background access: Background access has been denied. Please allow Easy Effects to ask again with flatpak permission-reset com.github.wwmm.easyeffects".

The premise is intriguing, but I can't actually evaluate it as software. I, also, am running Cinnamon 21, but although EasyEffects launches, it presents me with an Empty List rather than a list of apps to modify. I do need to reboot soon, to update the kernel, and we'll see if the reboot fixes this issue. FWIW, I did also manually install all of the dependencies listed at the wwmm/easyeffects github page.
