Hmm, you could also ask about this on linux-audio-user, how to I get

Ecasound only provides filtering primitives, so it might require some
tuning to get the results right, but yes, you can do things like:
ecasound -a:1,2 -i foo.wav -o bar.wav -a:1 -efb:80,160 -ea:100
By adjusting the last '100' you can control how much emphasis you want.
Replace bar.wav with /dev/dsp if you want to test in real-time.
Whether this is good enough depends on your quality requirements.

I might have time to help with this. Certain plugins should be quite
easily portable and I guess ecasound could use a good parameteric-eq
natively. One catch is that some of the LADSPA plugins use FFT, and thus
need the FFTW libraries, which I don't think (not 100% sure) are available
on Windows. For instance the mbqe plugin (multiband-EQ) uses that.
