MUSE DSP Engine: Parametric Equalizer

MUSE - Precision Audio Control: Parametric Equalizer


The Parametric Equalizer is part of the MUSE suite. For more information on accessing MUSE, see here.

Each MUSE configuration comes with a Parametric Equalizer by default. You can configure multiple equalizers if desired using the "Add Filter" button. You can also use the Parametric EQ from inside of the Procedural Equalizer if you only want to apply it to a subset of the channels.

When using the Parametric EQ, be sure to keep an eye on Headroom Management to avoid clipping.

Note: You cannot yet edit any MUSE settings from a mobile device. You can enable and disable MUSE filters, but any editing needs to be done from a device running Roon, like a Mac or Windows machine, not Roon Remote running on iOS or Android. 

Using the Parametric Equalizer 

This is one of the most beautiful audio-related features in Roon. It's worth playing with once, even if you don't end up using it.
