I'm loving the Auto EQ; I'm even using it without paying for it, resulting in the "This sound is processed by..." message. It's totally worth it.
One thing I'm NOT loving is trying to decide how to set the target levels, and also the mix on the output of Multiband 1 into Multiband 2.
I finally hit on an idea: why not scan my music library? Calculate and plot the average frequency curve of our songs, and then set the EQ curves to match that average?
I thought I could use Adobe Audition for this, but it turns out even at its lowest resolution, it's giving me 15 bands... and they're not spaced an octave apart like I have the bands set in Stereo Tool.
Does anybody know a tool that would scan a bunch of files (FLAC and mp3s), plot the average frequency response of the files I give it and output the level for each octave (or whatever crossover points I give it)?
EDIT: I also just realized: there would be a difference between peak level and average level in each band... I'm thinking maybe average level for Auto EQ and peak level for the mix levels of the MB? Not sure.
I'm willing to put in the time if this has to be done file by file and put into a spreadsheet, but the ability to bulk scan the frequency response would be FANTASTIC.
