Title: Sansa Clip Zip eq
Post by: okiru880 on May 12, 2012, 09:00:11 AM
As rockbox has a parametric EQ, and Sansa has a graphic EQ...

...is there any way thay I can find the "5 centre frequencies" which Sansa uses in their graphic EQ, so that I could put those values into the RB EQ, then by using the widest "Q Factor": 0.5, I may be able to replicate the Sansa EQ sound using Rockbox parametric EQ?

Cheers in advance of any advice.

...you may try to ask original firmware developers, they seems to answer:

You can try to play a "white noise" signal, apply eq, record it back to PC and analyse it with FFT.
I think you can use audacity both for generating a white noise signal and for recording back the effect of the equalizer.

A white noise signal is a kind of random signal that has the property that all frequencies in the signal have the same energy (on average). So if you play back a white noise signal, boost a specific band, record that back and analyse it, you should be able to see a bump in the spectrum around the centre frequency of that band. Repeat for all equalizer bands.
