Audio Effects for PulseAudio Applications
  20 reviews

PulseEffects is an advanced audio manipulation tools. 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.

Because PulseEffects uses the default PulseAudio 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, PulseEffects 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 PulseEffects 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.

I use LMDE5 and at times when on FireFox or any video player internet based or not, I hear static at times. Pandora, Youtube, etc. How ever PulseEffects fix's this and makes all sounds normal. I only gave this a 4 because I have to access the program when this issue occurs. All so, kinda annoying, maybe I am doing something wroing. Is that on Pandora, when a new song plays, the sound goes down on the PulseEffects to like 78% and I have to turn it up get it at 100% normal, since I use my TV as master volume and my LMDE is at 100% volume.

Sehr gut. Wirklich ein sehr gutes Programm um den Klang des PCs zu verbessern, selbst wenn der Hersteller der Tonkarte keine Treiber für Linux anbietet. Ich habe den Bass erstmal schön aufgedreht, den Limiter-Filter eingeschaltet und mich dabei an der deutschen Anleitung orientiert. Vielen Dank!!!

Amazing but when I installed for the firts time the graphic equalizer sliders never showed up, when reinstalled for the second time every thing is working properly. This is a brilliant pice of software and deserve the installer problem to be fixed, as a reference I used the flatpak installer.

I can't make my own presets but the ones included are great. Makes my 12 year computer sound like a music store.

This is by far the best piece of audio equalizing software I have seen. Nothing to compare to in windows realm. For starters it has 30 ( fully customizable) band equalizer and many many effects. Just amazing. Highly recommended. For me this software alone is good enought reason for using Linux.

YES. I don't know why it was so hard for me to find an audio equalizer, but this one is GREAT! Unfortunately, it causes my speakers to cut out intermittently and I had to uninstall to fix it, so I'm only leaving 4 stars. Does anyone know why this happens? Help would be appreciated! (If I can get it working properly I will change my rating back to 5 stars.)
