    Does EQ in WMP effect MI?

    Is the EQ in WMP supposed to effect the music in MI? or is it just the Bass/Treble slides that effect it?

    If the EQ in WMP doesn't carry over to MI, then is MI assumed to be a Flat EQ to start with? (disregarding the bass/treble controls)?

    Thank you

    The control I used for MI is just a small part of Windows Media Player. Its not the full program. The EQ is only an extension of the Windows Volume Control.

    So how would we "tweak" the EQ in MobileImpact, besides the bass and treble....

    Unfortunately I have not found a good way to do so in MI. I just use the cars head unit to make those adjustments.

    is it possible to run an EQ in the background that directly affects the sound card while MI is running?

    I havent found one that is finger friendly and graphical enough to suggest.

    This is the major disadvantage that I have with MI that forced me to get a soundcard as the soundblaster Audigy has its own EQ program where you can adjust the presets and save custom ones.

    Would there be anyway to run a similar program in the background but embed the controls into MI simply allowing you to move between presets but for any fine adjustments go back into windows??

    This would make it very touch friendly as it only requires two buttons for forward and backward or even list your presets as defined by the EQ software and you merely touch the name to activate in the same way that you would select a song.

    This is an excellent idea. Ive tested several different programs and unfortunately none of them were free. They all cost anywhere from 30 to 150 bucks. I am still on the lookout for a vb coded equalizer that I can get the SDK from and then add it to the program. I have been recently revisiting this for the next release and still havent found anything yet. I will double my efforts on this as this has always been a somewhat weak point in the program. Thanks.
