Hi all :)

I have a SHD Studio and like to play with both DIRAC software and REW to achieve best sound quality. Hence this question, is it better to first run DIRAC without any PEQ in the SHD, then after having loaded the DIRAC correction, run REW to check for PEQ settings or the opposite?

I did the opposite (REW first then load some PEQ settings in the SHD, then run DIRAC) but does DIRAC software keep the PEQ or does it disable everything to run measurements?

Thanks a lot for answers, have a great day ;)

If you are going to run both then Dirac should definitely be done second. If you do Dirac first you'd lose the phase/impulse response benefits of Dirac as the subsequent PEQ filters will mess up whatever Dirac has achieved in this regard.

Whatever you do I'd be comparing Dirac on its own to Dirac run after some PEQ to see what you like best, and to keep an open mind as to which is best.
