I would love to have libasound2-plugin-equal to support software based euqlizer. I had installed it in volumio and it work very well. Would be nice addition for people who have kodi as music player
Would be great!
I also miss the equalizer in the kodi very much and I would like to add it to the CoreELEC 19 Matrix. Well thank you.
I see no link for any addons what should be added.
Also not if they are compatible with Kodi Matrix.
Linux equalizer market is strange.
I fiddled around different solutions:
1.As libreelec / coreelec uses ALSA as default i started with the alsaequal plugin.
Got it compiled with a custom coreelec build.
Seams to be working, aplay -D equal test.wav works.
BUT Kodi seams to manage it’s alsa devices on its own and ignores .config/asound.conf.
I found no way to get Kodi to use the equal output device or set the default to equal.
Unresolved Topic? https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=88719
Kodi seams to auto detect pulseaudio output devices.
module-equalizer is disabled in the pulseaudio coreelec build. Got it compiled with a custom coreelec build.
The strange part is how to setup the equalizer levels.
I could only find the tool qpaeq. Which is a python script with a qt5 UI => not working on coreelec. https://github.com/pulseaudio/pulseaudio/blob/master/src/utils/qpaeq
Communication is done via dbus. With help of this script https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/508498 it is also controllable via cmdline.
And there are 10+ other possibilities, but for now i am testing this solution.
The module-equalizer-sink included with pulseaudio states for years:
module-equalizer-sink is currently unsupported, and can sometimes cause PulseAudio crashes
pulseaudio-equalizer-ladspa seams to be often used too
I have no clue which will fit the best.
They were right, pulseaudio-module-equalizer is buggy: causes random stutters/cracking,…
Found a workaround to get 1. alsaequal working with kodi. Testing this solution now, seems to work without stutters.
The workaround is to add a alsa sink to pulseaudio, so pulseaudio will be piped to alsa.
Then Kodi can be set to use pulseaudio as output.
Hello, I accidentally managed to find this discussion…https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=360514 … Wouldn’t that help in our case? It works as functional for KODI.
