I know a lot of people don't have the best microphone setup, and having these tools available could improve audio quality immensely. Some very basic tools to remove PC fan noise, boost & clean up vocal, and increase input gain, would be awesome. That way I (and others like me) wouldn't have to have the mic in our face, or use other virtual routing options before the discord input (which eats a bit of CPU, btw!) in order to be heard properly.
If you decide to do this, I suggest you keep the settings simple and minimal to some extent.
EQ: Three parameters; 1st and 3rd locked on frequency and Q factor - only gain sliders, 2nd parameter has adjustable frequency, Q, and Gain.
Compressor: Adjustable threshold, ratio, and makeup gain.
De-esser: Adjustable frequency and gain/de-ess amount.
Fixed order chain; De-esser, EQ, Compressor -> Dischord input.
If you don't feel like coding audio tools like this, maybe the use of VST's, or other free sound modules (Looking at you, Reaper) could be implemented instead, if you work out a license :)
It would really help if you decide to do this!
