Fak! That works!

However, I don’t understand why it didn’t take any effect since the first time installing it worked. I messed up with Razor Surround software, installed and finally removed it then Equalizer APO no longer work.

This did not work for me either. When I first installed APO on Windows 10, it worked great but it suddenly stopped working for no apparent reason. Exactly the same problem on a different desktop with Windows 10 Pro (1803) 64-bit.

This did not fix anything, instead, it made no audio come at all

This worked for me!!! Thank you so, so much. This was really starting to get frustrating. My headset lacks a little punch in the bass department, so I was upset that the software wasn’t working initially. Thanks again!
