Using the SoundAlive Equalizer - dummies

By Corey Sandler

Part of Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK Cheat Sheet

Your Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK’s Music Player app lets you play with an equalizer. Boost frequencies by genre, increase bass, and generally amp things up using SoundAlive. Play a song in the background and try different SoundAlive settings.

  • Basic tab: Categorize a song by genre to apply a preset “equalization” that boosts certain frequencies depending on the type of music. You can also apply amps.

  • Advanced tab: Use the equalizer to adjust the relative intensity of frequencies from 60 Hertz to 14k. Lower cycles are deep bass, and higher cycles are up there in dog whistle land. Adjust any of the seven bands by touching and holding its icon. Move it up to emphasize that frequency; move it down to reduce it. Press and hold the icons for the following settings at the bottom of the frequency scale:

    • Boost the bass response for rock and roll.

    • Boost the clarity for vocals.
