WHAT'S THE MEANING
A graphic equalizer is a high-fidelity audio control. It allows the user to see sound frequencies through graphic representations. It then allows the user to control each frequency band in a stereophonic system.
DID YOU KNOW?
The first equalizer was from John Volkman's design back in the 1930s? It was an external equalizer that had a set of individual frequencies featuring a boost or a cut. This was a direct result of the advent of motion picture sound. Sound capture methods during those times weren't as sophisticated as they are today. There came a need to fine-tune sound whether to cut our harsh sounds or emphasize certain ones. Equalizers for sound post-production and speech enhancement gained popularity throughout the 1950s-60s. Early devices had limits of only being able to control fixed frequencies. It wasn't until 1971 that Daniel Flickinger invented a tunable equalizer. His invention allowed arbitrary selection of frequency and gain in 3 overlapping bands. His circuit called the "sweepable EQ" would inspire the parametric equalizer. Parametric equalizers made it possible for users to adjust a frequency in any way they want. Most modern graphic equalizers support anywhere from 7 to 31 frequency bands. This allows users to fine-tune the sound to their preference. You can find graphic equalizer apps in all major platforms nowadays. It used to be that equalizers would only work within the apps themselves. Equalizers for Windows 10, for example, now work system-wide. Any changes you make to your sound will persist regardless of the app or program that you're using.
