Hello,

in the twoway-plugin it is possible to link the setup of the left an right channel EQ, but not the Crossover. Also it woud be nice if i´d be able to link the high and lowpass-frequency
This would be really useful. In a testsession, trying to find the best crossoverpoint, i repeatedly had to type in the same number 4 times and in two differen pages - it´s a little bit annoying and i beleve it´s only a small thing for the Programmers themselves.

Perhaps it would be even better if you could choose between an one or an two-channel configuration mode.
In the One-Cannel mode, you woud only see the settings-path once, and have them applied to both channels simultanously.
If you want to adjust the left and right channels independently, you´d just switch to twochannel mode and edit the settings as it is now implemented.

Im not shure about this one now - but a link between the crossoverfrequencys would be great for shure!

Regards,
Daniel

Hello Daniel,

Thanks for your comments and once again valuable suggestions for improvement.
Linking settings can indeed be done but I'm not sure of how much load it will be on the microcontroller... When you link crossovers for example and browse from one frequency to the other, we're talking of 4 times the amount of data we're currently sending. Not having tested it I don't know the load it would put on the microcontroller (on board of the miniDSP kit) to 1) receive these commands 2) Send the data to the DSP IC 3) Save them to the EEPROM.
The danger in sending too much data is that you could easily become out of sync between your PC (having a CPU over 1.5Ghz I'm guessing) and the small microcontroller on the board trying to digest all that information.

So no promise for now since we'll have to test it to see if that could work. These days, we've started work on some new plug-ins along with our very busy hardware development schedule. I don't think that we'll be able to include that feature now because it could delay the release of these new plug-ins. But I'll add it to the wish-list to see what can be done.

Hope this clarifies your questions,
