Hi, I just received my DDRC-24 and I'm presently reading the manual, before beginning the installation.
At page 22 ,(attached) there is something that makes absolutely no sense. The software asks for the filter type, and the proposed answers seems to be "bypass" and "bypassed" (What's the difference?). Well, anyone of those words is NOT a filter type. I would have expected Bessel, Butterworth, or L-Riley.
And "Bypass filter" gives you the choice of, oh surprise, some filter types!

I think that they inverted the headings, so "Bypass filter" should read "Filter Type", and inversely.
I also think that the heading "Bypass filter" is not clear. It should rather read "Filter Status". And the two choices of answer should be "Active" and "Bypassed".

Am I right with this, or am I just totally confused?
Edit: I still haven't seen the software, so "maybe" it has been corrected there???

Quite simple: To Bypass processing = not go through the algorithm. So when you Bypass a filter (PEQ/Xover), it will just turn it off. It's like an ON/OFF button. "nothing" to do with the filter type (completely different section). Once you see software, it will make more sense.
