Basic Equalizer for my T490s laptop

2020-09-08, 22:54 PM

Hi guys,

 

I need to install a very basic equalizer on my T490s, when I read on the internet, they suggest to enable the Windows native one:

 

Right click Sound Icon > Open Sound Settings > Sound Control Panel > Playback > click on Speakers > Properties > Enhancements Tab > tick box for Equaliser. 

 

Well, I do not have the 'Enhancement' tab and I have no idea why.

 

Regardless, I just need an EQ to cut the high pitch of voices during video conferences, therefore I need a very basic EQ to low the high frequencies only.

 

I think the default native Windows EQ should be enough for me, if not in there, would you please suggest an alternative software that does not have too many options like the one I see online from Realtek or APO ?

 

Thank you!

Alex

Do you have the Dolby Atmos tab? It probably says Atmos is on. To access the equalizer, use the Windows Dolby Atmos app.
I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

Hi there,

 

No ATMOS tab, I also searched for it using the search function, nothing is there.

There is only a Dolby Premium that needs a headphone to be activated.

 

Is there any 'light' software I can use just for my purpose?

 

Certainly, I wouldn't have expected that a $2K machine does not include such a basic feature.

 

Thank you,

Alex

Anybody?

 

I also searched Vantage to see if I could find any driver that would help to get a basic EQ, I found and installed the Realtek Audio Driver for Windows 10 (Version 1709 or later)  but I cannot even find the UI to see if there is an EQ.

 

I cannot believe that this machine only relies on third party software for EQ.

 

Since I need to decrease the voice high pitch on videoconferencing platforms, i.e. MS Teams or WebEx, I cannot even use a pitch shifter because I listen to live events.

 

Any help is much appreciated.

 

Thank you,

Alex
