We all love music and sounds. And we always try to get the best sound hardware while choosing a PC or laptop. The very basic method to boost audio quality in any computer is getting a good sound card and speakers. Further its possible to adjust the bass, fidelity and other sound properties at the operating system level, by using Digital Sound Processing plugins. These plugins work behind the media players and produce the best audio output for games, movies and music.
Premium Media players like PowerDVD, WinDVD, Nero ShowTime, etc. includes a few DSP plugins. But these plugins are limited to the respective software platforms and certain configurations. Here are three alternative and standalone DSP plugins for Windows and Mac, that works in a better way than the costly media players.
