Alex, please forward to Alexander Foss, the one who asked for the plugin.
You do realise that an "equalizer" is designed to counter the frequency
response of your audio setup (i.e. "equalize"), not to "MAKE THE BASS
SOUND PHAT PLZ"? :P
Personally I don't see the point of having something to do the latter.
Audio engineers put a hell of a lot of effort making music sound exactly
how they want it, and I trust their judgements on how the bass should
sound better than I trust my own (or anyone else's for that matter).
Still, if you're interested in writing a plugin, it's pretty trivial to
stick an EQ into the audio pipeline. In fact there might even already be
some code for it flying around.
