[vlc-devel] [PATCH 1/2] equalizer: Use ISO frequencies as default instead of VLC frequencies

For a long time, VLC has used the old Winamp bands for the equalizer. A while
ago, the ISO bands were introduced as an alternative. These alternative bands
are logarithmically spaced, making them a better choice since the perception
of pitch is logarithmic. Therefore, the ISO bands should be the new default.
