I use VLC player almost exclusively now to play my local audio and video files. Now, I'm trying to pirate less, I have less of a reason to continue to use it. Since I have an awesome Pandora account (lots of customization time), I won't be buying too much music. That being said, I have come to love the Audio Equalizer/Filter feature that VLC has. Everything I listed to just "pops" when I have the proper filter applied. My father used to use a program to record the output from the sound card. It struck me that there might be a way to apply the filter to the sound card instead of the music files themselves. When I messed with the settings though, there was no way to do that by default. I was wondering if there is a way to apply the VLC effects to the Pandora stream that is coming though the sound card.
