There are 16 Dirac, or processing channels, and either 16 or 24 output channels.
The Dirac processing channels are basically the content channels: L,R,C,LFE,Ls,Rs,HL,HR,HC,HLs,HRs,T (and Lw,Rw for Neo:X).
You can connect one or more output channels to any of the Dirac processing channels.
A typical use for multiple outputs is for crossovers where a high and low output are from the same Dirac channel. In that case Dirac treats it the same as it does an individual speaker (for the Dirac setup there is no difference if one output was used and the crossovers were at the speaker).
A second use is to have an speaker array. In that case Dirac cannot do the time alignment impulse response correction.
16 channel processing happens before routing.
- 1/3 octave EQ
- Parametric EQ
- Channel Delay
Output channel processing happens after routing.
This can be 16 or 24 channels.
- High Pass Filter
- Low Pass Filter
- Output Channel Delay
- Output Channel Trim
