How to reproduce the WMP12 EQ Rock preset to other players?
I'm wondering if anyone knows what are the settings used for Windows Media Player 12 Rock EQ preset. To me it sounds better than other settings or players, so I want to reproduce it to other players.

Here's a screenshot:

Please type it in following format:
32      64      ....
+3  -2.5    .....


Thanks,

You'll need to record the output of white noise with this EQ applied, then bring it into a capable audio editor to determine what the dBFS values are at each point. Note, however, that you'll need to enure that your Q is maintained across equalizers in order to duplicate the sound of this equalizer: it's not as simple as duplicating each frequency setting. A paragraphic equalizer could be used to get a rough idea of the correct Q.

I think I've reproduced it for WinAmp, of course WinAmp needs to be setup in Options->Preferences->Playback->Equalizer to "WinAmp 4Front EQ" & "ISO Standard Frequancy Bands".

I've did test listenings and it sounds identical or almost identical (I havent played it very loud though, so Im not sure if its 100% identical).

Anyone insterested can download the EQF file for Winamp here:

Update:
Im appologizing, the last band was a bit higher than it should, so heres updated EQF
