Launching Spotify w/o Equalify?


Is it possible to completely disable Equalify without actually having to uninstall it? I’m only wondering since it would be a minor QoL improvement as a Spotify beta tester, not having to uninstall Equalify to confirm certain issues.

Granted, the chances of Equalify interfering with Spotify and causing issues is really low, but it has happened before.

A simple setting in equalify2.eq would do - something like “LoadEQ” with 1 & 0 as values.

It’s not a big deal if it isn’t possible.


Only way to “disable” Equalify without uninstalling is to rename/move the Equalify dll (dsound.dll) in the Spotify folder.

A setting in the .eq file would be pointless as the dll would have already been loaded by the time the .eq file is read - and once its loaded it can not be unloaded.


Ah, figured something like that would work as well, just didn’t know which file(s) and/or folder(s) to work with.

Thanks! This’ll make life a little bit easier :slightly_smiling_face:

Solved it with two batch files, one to open Spotify with Equalify and one without.
