Design of a Digitally Controlled Graphic Equalizer

Document Thumbnail

This article deals with the design of a digitally audio controller for use in general applications. The goal is to create a 10-band graphic equalizer of which the signal gain or attenuation in every octave band is controllable by a smartphone /tablet application. The application provides a user interface to enhance perceptive audio quality intuitively. Making the equalizer digitally controllable by an app eliminates the necessity of manually adjusting the equalizer faders, thus the need of the presence of a musician/engineer at the location of the equalizer is removed. Preset configurations are easily activated in the equalizer hardware with only one touch within the app. Further testing and optimization efforts are required for the validation of the system.
