Equalizer For Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Hey all

I've just got myself a new set of Sony 2.1 speakers but the bass is really loud which i usually love but living in an apartment with a neighbour who hates noise i need to lower it a bit.

On Ubuntu MATE 18 I knew about being able to use a Pulse Audio EQ but it no longer works on Ubuntu MATE 20.04

Can anyone advise me how i can setup an EQ on my new Ubuntu MATE install?

Thanks for your time

Pulse Effects.
Linux Studio Plugins is required for the EQ to work.
sudo apt install -y pulseeffects lsp-plugins and you're good to go.


Thankyou very much! Is working!

thanks just used the command to install it and it looks great ! I will try it with noize cancellation, working with Africa in video meetings :wink:

20% CPU for noize cancellation 12th gen P cores :

Cuuuuute .
But not integrated in Ubuntu Mate :
It doesn t go in the notification bar when closed. It just close the programme.
Pullseffects is tipically a notification bar app like the other sound options of mate.

  • Should we contact Mate or Pulseeffects to have the proper behaviour ?
  • COuld it be installed by default and connected to the current audio management window ?
