Just like the moon landing, this is false. We promise there is no conspiracy to prevent you from using your favorite equalizer APO (Looking at you, Peace users)
So, what gives?
Many software-based equalizers like Peace work as Windows APOs
Since Windows only allows one APO to be active at a time, conflicts can occur if both are assigned to the same audio device
Now, if your APO stopped working after installing SSE, it’s not because it had a vendetta out for it. There is most likely a hierarchal struggle going on in Windows as installing DTS APO made it active instead of Peace APO.
- Uninstall SSE
- Reinstall your APO
- Reinstall SSE without DTS (blue banner pointed to on the picture below)
