Orinj version 3.0.0
The Orinj Graphic Equalizer adjusts the amplitude of frequencies in the signal. This is a 20-band equalizer, in which the diapason of human hearing – between 20 Hz and 22 kHz – is split equally in twenty one frequency bands, assuming that humans perceive the frequency spectrum exponentially, and not linearly.
Using the Orinj Graphic Equalizer
The Orinj Graphic Equalizer can be added to tracks in the multitrack session view, tracks in the loop building view, and to waves in the single wave view. In the multitrack session view and in the loop building view, first select the track to which you want to add the effect. In all these views, click on Effect, Equalization, and then on Orinj Graphic Equalizer in the Orinj menu. You will see the following dialog.
When this dialog becomes visible, the Orinj Graphic Equalizer effect has been added. Adjust the parameters of the equalizer and click on Close. The parameters of the effect are described below.
Orinj Graphic Equalizer parameters
See Orinj Effects for an explanation of the Title, Track, Presets, and Bypass controls. The remaining Orinj Graphic Equalizer controls are described below:
- Frequency band gains: Use these controls – the boxes and sliders – to set the gains of the twenty frequency bands of the equalizer. The gains are measured in decibels and can be between -20 dB and 20 dB.
- Precision: Use this slider to define the precision of the equalizer. Larger precision means better separation of frequency bands, but also requires more computational resources (i.e., the effect will be slower).
- Actual equalization: Click on this checkbox to display the actual equalization that will be applied. This actual equalization will be shown in blue and should be similar to the intended equalization shown in yellow. Depending on the precision of the equalizer, however, it may also be slightly different.
- Reset: Click on this button to set the gains of all equalizer bands to zero.
See Orinj Effects for additional notes on: where Orinj effects can be used, using boxes and sliders that impact the same parameter (such as the boxes and sliders for the gains), applying effects to mono and stereo waves, and using effects during playback. See Orinj Working with effects for additional information on creating, modifying, moving, removing, and processing effects.
The Orinj version 2 Graphic Equalizer
The parameters of the Orinj version 2 Graphic Equalizer are similar. The precision of the equalizer is controlled by a spinner, rather than a slider. The spinner shows the actual length of the filters employed by the equalizer. There are no options to show the actual equalization.
