Is it possible to put plugins on main computer output ? Equalizer Plugins

Is it possible to put plugins on main computer output ?

I made some accoustic corrections in Fabfilter ProQ due to bad room and I always put it on my master channel whenever I make music.

I wonder if its possible to use ProQ outside my DAW, for example when I listen music from youtube.

Any clues ?

Windows or Mac? You might find it doesn't sound so great on bad encodes as well, because you're boosting a much lesser quality signal.

You could just use this plug in for Chrome, per website EQ, pretty decent tbh. You can save presets too.

On Mac use audio hijack. Perfect for what you want.

It is on PC at least. You'll have to do some searching, because I can't remember the name of the program, but it does some rerouting in your system.

I wanted to use ARC2 in there (you should check it out, I think it'll help you room way more than what you are doing), but it wound up being a pita

With my Soundcard (EMU1820m) I can route the Main Windows Sound into my DAW and out. So check out if you can route the main output channels of your soundcard into your DAW

I just wish VLC would use plugins, and better than the current foobar2000 implementation.
VST3, etc...

VLC with plugins would be fantastic.

Yes, it is possible. You need VB Audio Cable and Pedalboard (both are free). Watch this clip:

Although not very tidy.

I grabbed this, but can't figure out how to use it with ASIO. The virtual IO don't show up, only my ASIO IO


Edit, it still works fine as originally requested in the OP. I was hoping to use it from my DAW also. In otherwords, have no plugin in the daw, just have everything in the computer go through this on the way out. I guess I can live with this.

Oh, it's only $29
