    Hmmm, I don't see anything close to that. You may be out of luck for a manufacturer made equalizer. You'll have to search for generic equalizers like this one, there are many others: Equalizer APO | Free software downloads at SourceForge.net

    Windows Media Player still has a equalizer. It's just very well hidden. I'll try to walk you through finding it and setting it. It's been a while so give me a minute to mess with mine first.Okay here goes, open Windows Media Player, tap/click the Alt key on your keyboard, click View, Skin Chooser, click on Revert (must be done for EQ to appear)and Apply skin. Now a mini version of Windows Media Player appears. Click the rectangle button that looks like a Equalizer symbol at the bottom , a drop down menu for different equalizer settings appears, Rock , Rap, Grunge, Metal, etc. Make your pick and see if you like it. Now click on the little rectangle box up top with a left arrow at the top the left (in area where minimize would be). That will restore Windows Media Player back to it's normal size with the permanently equalizer enabled for it, until you turn it off. *Only works when Windows Media Player is playing music, etc. Otherwize, it's off. . Hope that's what your're after.

    That's fine for just Media Player but I think he is looking for something that works across the board. I could be wrong, have been before.

    Seems to be MIA since the last link I gave him.
