I just watched a new video on MRH’s Trainmasters TV in which Matt Herman of ESU USA detailed some of the changes in the Loksound 5 decoders. About 15 minutes into the interview, Matt mentioned that they are looking into adding a graphic equalizer feature in a new firmware release. Just update the decoder with the latest firmware and the decoder would get new features. Frequency adjustments would be made through ordinary CVs so we could hear changes almost instantly.
Matt also said it isn’t a given that the factory will do it. They might want to do something else in the firmware, so… if we want an equalizer, we need to give feedback to Matt.

I downloaded the data sheet for the new Atmel sound processor on Lok 5 decoders and I don’t see any reason they couldn’t add the feature. For the geeks out there, the 32-bit CPU runs at 48 MHz and can do an integer multiply in a single cycle. Of course, a corresponding update to the LokProgrammer software would be needed as well.
(drooling to get this feature!)
