Getting Started with Your SHD / DDRC
The SHD / DDRC is an extremely powerful and flexible high-fidelity digital audio processor. The system combines the Dirac Live® 3.x / room correction solution with miniDSP's powerful DSP audio tuning plug-in software and Volumio high-performance network streaming.
The SHD / DDRC interacts with various software systems. To ensure smooth initialization of your SHD / DDRC, please be sure all the latest drivers and applications are loaded per the current user guides. SHD products purchased from Deer Creek Audio include perpetual licenses and updates.
A few things before you begin
Before you start a Dirac project, verify you can run your system with the SHD in its basic mode as a preamp
Your Mac or PC should be fully updated and as clean as possible
All older, related miniDSP, Dirac software and USB drivers should be removed
Loading the ASIO driver on PCs is required
When operating Dirac, all level control must occur in the Dirac application
If you perform updates, be sure to update all components: Dirac, SHD plug-in, USB driver and Volumio
When running a Dirac project, make sure your MAC or PC is fully connected to the UMIK-1
Always remember to save your Dirac projects and configuration .xmls
