Only thing that affects audio is 7 band EQ.

So far, the only thing I could suggest for future updates is more presets (though I am still enjoying the 4 provided), and perhaps a suggested auto gain after the Learn so that the volume ends up comparable to before. I find I am consistently adding about 6 to 9dB after Learn.

I am not entirely sure what thought processes go in to producing and mastering audio, so I don't really know what different presets would look like. I guess if there are other genres that have common techniques for mastering, those would make cool presets. Like perhaps audio for certain types of playback devices or mediums. Such as TV quality audio standards, movie quality audio standards, iPhone quality audio standards, stadium quality audio standards etc. Whenever I am trying to mix for these, I have no idea how boomy, tinny or muddy they will sound in their native playback scenarios. But I have to believe somewhere in holly wood they just know, "For the version of the movie that goes to theatres, have this specific frequency range boosted, this one cut... ... then it will sound perfect in most theatres"
Perhaps some other genres of music and common styles from different eras. Again, I don't know much about the mastering process, but I have a feeling there were standards in the 80s that are different than standards now. Or even down to specific bands.
Ever since I first heard of the app called Har-Bal, I always wondered if you could scan a track and gain it's frequency balance as sort of a template, then run other audio through it to try and match that particular balance scheme. Do you think Freq could ever create presets based off analysis or a loaded in track?
