Author Topic: On BASS_FX's PEAKEQ, how do you free a band's resources?  (Read 596 times)

It looks like you create a new band on the first call to BASS_FXSetParameters using its lBand
 number. Is it so? Then subsequent calls to BASS_FXSetParameters just overwrite the parameters for that band, I guess.

But what if I want to release a certain band and all its resources?

I think setting lChannel = BASS_BFX_CHANNONE would kill or at least lower the band's CPU usage, but what about memory usage?

It isn't possible to remove bands. You would need to recreate the effect for fewer bands, ie. call BASS_ChannelRemoveFX and BASS_ChannelSetFX again. Alternatively, you can prevent a band having any effect by setting their "fGain" parameter to 0 (note that won't totally eliminate their CPU usage). Each band uses very little memory (around 64 bytes), so you don't really need to be concerned about that.

Ok, I'll do it that way. Thanks !
