Subject: Question about Rockboxed players without "Bass Cutoff" selection

Question about Rockboxed players without "Bass Cutoff" selection

I have a question.

I have a Rockboxed 80GB iPod Classic that has a bass-boost feature with a “Bass Cutoff” selection (the value choices for the “Bass Cutoff” are 1, 2, 3, and 4). The value of “1” sounds great with proper EQ’ing. But “2,” “3,” and “4” sound bad and have too much midbass, which I never use.

I just found out that many (or most) other Rockboxable players besides iPod Classics ***do not*** have this “Bass Cutoff” option for *their* bass-boost features. So, my question is...are all those other players without this option...automatically set to the equivalent “Bass Cutoff” value of “1” on the iPod Classic? Or, are those other players automatically set to a different value?

Just curious.

Anyway, a few days ago I just released a 43-minute video, detailing my extensive Rockbox EQ presets and portable headphone system. I put these presets into a .zip file and uploaded them to the Internet, so everyone else with a Rockboxed player can download and use them.

You can view this video on YouTube at...

(On the YouTube page, click the tab under the video that says, "Show more," to view all the web links, etc. These links should be clickable.)

You also can watch this same 43-minute video on the Chinese video site YouKu at...

(On the YouKu page, at the end of the English text underneath the video, you'll see some blue Chinese characters that specifically look like " 详情 ". Click on those particular characters to view all the English web links, etc., under the video. You may need to copy & paste these links into your browser's address line to get them to work.)

Anyway, any answers to my question about the “Bass Cutoff” would be really appreciated!
