Audacity Adds Real-Time Preview of effects
« on: April 09, 2015, 10:44:41 AM »
Latest (just released) version of Audacity offers real-time preview for VST, LADSPA and AU effect plug-ins.  Also works on a couple native Audacity effects...Have only fiddled a bit with it, but this is a significant improvement...http://betanews.com/2015/03/30/audacity-adds-real-time-effects-preview-updates-noise-removal-tool/

Does this include real-time EQ?

This is my question too. I upgraded today before work but didn't have a chance to play with it to see if EQ could be done in real time vs the 30 second preview.

i agree, finally! 
as far as real-time EQ goes, i am pretty sure that the standard audacity EQ will NOT work for this version (there are only a couple native audacity effects that support real-time at this stage)...however, any non-native, VST plugins or other plugins should work for real time (of which there are many).  I tested real-time last night with the C3 Multi-band compressor plug-in and it worked perfectly. 
If anyone can recommend a good free EQ plugin I would love to hear about it. 
They also updated the look of the main front-end of Audacity...

regarding real-time EQ...did a bit of research on free VST graphic EQ plugins which will work within Audacity and be useable for the new real-time feature...and this is the one that i am going to try initially...people generally seem to like it: Voxengo Marvel GEQ

I would suggest a parametric EQ rather than a graphic FWIW

It works great.  Gonna be so much easier.  I know I need to learn Reaper but for now, at least, I can actually hear what I'm doing while I'm doing it!  Thanks for the heads up and the links.  Much appreciated!

Is there a parametric EQ plug in?
I know you like, tape for people's approval and stuff, and wave your tapes around like they're your dick...  but even you can't actually think section tapes from philips sound good.

I'm not sure about free ones. I use the EQ section from izotope Ozone.

There are many free parametric eq plugins. This is a good starting point/resource: http://bedroomproducersblog.com/2011/03/03/bpb-freeware-studio-best-free-parametric-equalizer-vst-plugins/
Also check this one out, these guys seem to have a few very well thought out plugins: http://www.tokyodawn.net/tdr-vos-slickeq/

So what's the consensus on what's a good EQ plugin for Audacity? I checked out one but would like to further this discussion what people like most,
