I’m thinking of getting an SHD - analogue in, analogue out, not the studio - to use as a system preamp. Does it have a balance control?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

Dirac Live will correct gain imbalance at the first measurement position, and you can change output levels in the plugin. But not a realtime knob.

Thanks for the reply. Not having an L/R balance control makes it less family friendly.

So long as overall gain for L and R can be adjusted independently, the SHD will do nicely

BTW, am I the only one here who finds small channel imbalances in commercial CDs annoying?

Thanks for your interest in the SHD.
Unfortunately no channel balance control. As mentioned by Speakee, Dirac live will tune your room for you to "sound" balanced.
You can always use the output DSP section of the plugin to manually edit that balance if somehow you want to offset your sound..

Thank devteam.

To be clear, the balance control would be used to compensate for L- R imbalance in program material, just as in a traditional preamp.

Can you confirm that manually changing L or R gain will not affect the Dirac filters?

Thanks.

Dirac live filters are not affected by the output gain indeed.. Completely different controls.
