Just like many home stereo systems that come with a multi-band equalizer, jukebox software such as Windows Media Player (WMP) can have this feature to help tweak the shape of the audio you hear -- frequency bands can be manipulated to help boost or reduce detail in your songs.
Sometimes music that you listen to might be lacking bass or high frequency detail for instance, but you can use the EQ tool in WMP to help enhance these deficient areas. With the right balance, your EQ settings can really liven up an otherwise dull sounding song.
If you've ever thought a song needed more bass, less treble, or more vocal definition, then here are some tutorials to help you access and fully use this useful tool:
