    Letasoft looks very amateurish with its Comic Sans MS font. And the program is certainly not worth the price. There are many ways to boost volume without paying.

    I am recommending this as one of the best sound boosters for PC just because I am fond of increasing the bass of any song for ready for remixing. The deep bass virtual subwoofer feature functions as a great volume booster.

WHAT'S THE MEANING?

An equalizer is a device or a program that allows the balance between sound wave frequencies to be adjusted. It adjusts the loudness of specific frequencies of sound, “cutting” and “boosting” them to get the best possible acoustic experience. Equalizers are used to customize how audio will sound like in specific places with specific configurations. For example, for a room that doesn’t respond well to bass frequencies, the equalizer can be used to boost the loudness of the bass frequencies to “equalize” the sound. Equalizer settings are also fixed for different genres and songs. Early equalizers were huge machines inside recording studios, but nowadays it can fit into smartphones, as there are dozens of equalizer apps online.

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that just like with photos, you can also put some filter to a sound? Say hi to the concept of EQ (equalization). Imagine photographers wanting to enhance the appearance of their final work by adjusting the colors, lighting, and everything--that's basically much the same for sound engineers. EQ isn't just about sound boosting, it is more of refining. It is also where a sound engineer alters or manipulates the sound frequency through an equalizer. Perhaps, any sound engineer would agree with the rule "less is more" when it comes to Equalization 101. Thanks to technology, you can now do this even on your smartphones through the best sound enhancer apps.
