My 1st Teechy tutorial! (Teechy #1) Get the most out of your Mac’s or PC’s speakers when using iTunes, and improve song quality via these “Perfect” Equalizer settings #teechy

23 Oct

Do you ever feel that the maximum volume on your iTunes or Mac/PC is too low? Does the sound quality from your iTunes seem sub-par? Did you ever use DFX Audio (http://www.fxsound.com) back on a PC to make your music seem like it was recorded live, right in front of you?

If you’re serious about music, follow these instructions to get the best out of the songs in your iTunes library.

  1. On a Mac, go into your iTunes “Preferences” via iTunes > Preferences… (or press Command + the comma button on your keyboard). If you’re on a PC, go to your iTunes “Options” to make these improvements.

  2. Go to “Playback” preferences, enable (check the box next to) “Sound Enhancer,” and move the slider 3/4 of the way left to hear a little more “punch” to your music. (Going all the way to the left causes some muffling and tinny sounds, but you may want to play around with it depending on your speakers or headphones.)It should look like this when you’re done:

  3. Now go to your iTunes “Equalizer” settings found here:

  4. Turn your Equalizer “On” by checking the box and adjust each slider to match the following setup:

    *Depending on your speakers and/or headphones, you may have to adjust your sliders, more likely the first three (32, 64, and 125) if you sense that your speakers/headphones can’t handle the bass level and you hear some distortion as a result. Simply mess around with the sliders as I have done here to account for the various speakers and headphones I use:

    "Perfect + 1 Bass" iTunes Equalizer

    "Perfect + Tri-Bass" iTunes Equalizer

    "Perfect + Flat Bass" iTunes Equalizer

    You’re set to go on iTunes! 

    Happy listening! Share with your friends! And stay tuned into Teechy for upcoming tutorials on how to get the best out of your computer and music, and Update Yourself.
