Equalizer Presets

2 pages of alternative links (out of hundreds of threads)? Please supply internal presets like Winamp does. This is really a mandatory need from a music player.

No it's not. Contrary to popular belief, equalizer settings don't depend on the style of music being played but on your listening equipment and personal taste.
Full-quoting makes you scroll past the same junk over and over.

I would love to integrate the Winamp presets because I enjoyed two presets that actually sounded better in my ears; Full bass and trebel, and Laptop speakers/headphones.

What would be the math behind adapting presets from Winamp's 10-band 12 +/-db + preamp to Foobar's 18-band 20 +/- db EQ?

Is 12 DB in fb2k 12 in Winamp, or are they just graphical representations of +100%/-100%? (I assume I am wrong in thinking this but I dunno...

This would also be helpful for those migrating from Winamp to fb2k to know this kind of stuff.

Skimming through the topic, I'd have to say that Hearbar and Yirkha have had the best explanations: that equalizer settings are only to compensate for taste and audio set-up, and not to "fix" the way music is recorded - "flat" is the way it was intended by the artists and engineers.

Granted, I came here looking for some basic presets for certain situations - at a party, at a dance, etc. but when it comes to personal listening, just play around, and see what you get.

Sorry for resurrecting a thread unnecessarily.

i don't like using the equalizer any more. i prefer to listen to the music as it is was intended.
but anyway, for you guys/girls who like using them:

i uploaded some presets for Foobar2000, that i collected/combined from 3 different sources.
