A free add-on has recently been released for Spotify on Windows, which adds an equalizer to allow you to enhance the sound of your music.
Spotify has had a huge impact on changing the way we listen to music. It has saved me an immense amount of money since I switched from buying individual songs on iTunes, and almost every premium user that I have spoken to, including myself, has emphasized how much easier and more cost-effective it is in comparison to more traditional solutions.
Spotify does of course have its weaker points, one of which is the fact that there is no Equalizer present in the main Spotify client – not even a bass boost setting! Many people requested this of Spotify, in fact it is the third most requested feature on their feedback forums, but although they deemed it a ‘good idea’ over 3 years ago, nothing has been added since.
However, Equalify is a community developed add-on for Spotify, which provides the perfect solution to this problem. It works as a separate DLL which is integrated with the main Spotify application, and therefore fits into the Spotify GUI seamlessly, without running as a separate application. It uses the same Equalizer bands as Winamp, so it should be familiar settings for many.
Equalify really does make a huge difference to the sound of your music, and is a must-have for any music-lover. The only shortfall is that Equalify is not available for Mac or Linux, but if you’re running Windows, I would strongly recommend giving it a go. You can download Equalify for yourself at equalify.me.
