the left side of the bar not going up? maybe the bass?
I do not have Stereo Mix but it's work but one thing it listens to my microphone not my speaker &windows7
When I click the button in the bottom right of the taskbar to minimize everything all of my plugins stay other that the equalizer that disappears... Anyone have a solution to this problem? I have watched the video to 'lock' it into place but it does not solve my problem. Here is the button I mean:
i too have not found a solution for that only

I was able to get this equalizer to recognize my USB headphones' microphone - so in theory, shouldn't we be able to get it to recognize the USB headphones audio output? By changing the settings in SpecGPset.ini, from Audiodevice=-1 to Audiodevice=1, the equalizer then reacts to my USB headphones microphone. 
Audiodevice=-1 to Audiodevice=1,
you have done nothing but made the usb mic as default input...
see the commects(ctrl+f to find :)) i saw someone got their EQ working with usb headphone
and also with optical out

I've searched the entire comments section, I couldn't find any post where someone gets the USB headphones to work. I read your description about how the USB input doesn't use the onboard audio card, and thats what created the question of how I can get it to pick up my USB headphones microphone, but not the headphones speakers.
