I've made impulse to correct my speakers response, and would like to use it in my Ubuntu 11.04.

Home page was inaccessible so I used cached view to read boring documentation without single usage example. After that I searched Google for possible example usage and found some "specialized" examples that shred a bit of light about it, but I couldn't find anything about the meaning of
This project seems discontinued and I don't know if it is good idea even if I knew how to set it
