auto standby, auto input selection, more than 2 channel Dirac? 7 months 1 day ago #57940

Hi

I could not find any information regarding the following features in the manual:
  • Auto standby (and auto wake up)
  • Auto input selection
  • Dirac Live Bass Management (www.dirac.com/live/bass-control/). It seems like only 2 channel Dirac is supported, despite the 4 channel output?
Does that mean these are not supported and I have to use the remote control/the knob every time to switch the device on and off and select the input?

Thanks for clarifying!

Pretty sure the bass management is a no.
Auto standby/input I would like to know myself. I've had devices that did that very well.

Auto standby would be awesome 
even a 5 min wait would be perfect 

I don’t see the point of bass management in a 4ch dsp….  We’ll you mean 4 available Dirac channels ?

that would be cool.  But it’s hard to have bass management and a LFE when it’s only 2ch input….

pretty sure you can manage the bass just fine with one set of outputs. Unless your doing 2 subs with 1 RCA going to each one and two bass amps….  In that case Just get an 8x12DL or 88BM or get another ddrc24.

I would love auto standby and auto input selection!

Auto standby would be a higher priority over auto input selection.

DLBC is not supported, and couldn't be supported due to only having 2 input channels on the device (the number of output channels is not relevant). DLBC is designed for systems where there is a separate subwoofer channel in the recording. 

It is possible to achieve excellent subwoofer integration with a Flex but this needs to be done manually configuring the plugin based on measurements made in REW.

If you do the crossover before the Dirac correction then you have 3 or 4 channels, each independently corrected by Dirac. With the current setup there are only two Dirac channels and the crossover happens after the Dirac correction. That limits the result, because Dirac can't independently control the sub(s).

The restriction is the number of input channels not what if any crossover is applied by the Flex. The Flex can't somehow process signals differently such that DLBC could be used. The source signals for Dirac Live come from a computer of some form, sending stereo full range signals to the Flex. For DLBC there would need to be at lease one additional input channel, on which a subwoofer signal could be sent.

And why would that not work? After the crossover there are 3/4 channels that can be controlled by Dirac.

Sorry, I'm struggling with how I can say this more clearly than above. Dirac control is external to the Flex and there are only two input channels that can be used.

That is not an explanation why it would not be possible. It is an opinion (I don't mean that in an offensive way). Whether Dirac calls the feature Bass Control or whether it is a normal Dirac feature does not matter. If there would be 4 Dirac channels in the Flex you could correct each channel seperately, which, depending on the room, could improve the quality.

I wrote specifically about DLBC since this is what you asked about. What specific scenario are you interested in?
