I recently upgraded to an Asrock z77 mobo & i5 3570k and to my disappointment, the motherboards onboard HD audio uses Realtek drivers which for some reason don't contain EQ any more, and it's really annoying my quite a lot, when I was on VIA drivers I had an EQ.

Does anyone know of easy to use EQ software (I don't even need anything high end with 31 band etc) for Windows 7? Please don't suggest media players etc, I want an EQ that can control all sound outputs including games, films, music, YouTube etc.

the equaliser is still there in my latest realtek driver software

got 4 presets or a 10 band manual equaliser

look for a little guitar icon on the left hand side of the realtek audio manager

In the Realtek HD Audio-Manager already has an EQ. There is button right to the preset-section to toggle between the preset- and graphical EQ mode.

Going to try a download from Asrock but I can't see it making a difference.

that looks like a different version to mine

mine shows as 6.0.1.6657

Yeah, nothing in there. Updated to 6.0.1.6559 and still nothing unfortunately.

There seems to be a newer revision here, but obviously I don't know whether they'd cover your chip or include an EQ or not.

I believe the control panels can vary from motherboard manufacturer, going to have a stab at a download from Asus now since the first reply shows Realtek drivers with EQ on an Asus board.

Control Panel ("View By: Large Icons") --> Sound --> (Double-click) Speakers --> Enhancements --> Select 'Immediate Mode' --> Scroll down to 'Equalizer' --> click the options button and have fun!
