ALSA Switcher & Multiband EQ


This is a script I made in 2017 but have recently uploaded to github.

Script & Config to utilize a Multiband EQ and switch between audio devices from the linux CLI.

  • ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture)
  • LADSPA (Linux Audio Developers Simple Plugin Architecture)
  • mbeq (ladspa plugin)

Currently the script switches between a USB DAC & a USB Headset.

The USB DAC (speakers) has no EQ & the USB Headset has a Multiband EQ (based on frequency response graph).

  • ncurses
