Using algorithms created specifically for audio applications, Dirac Live provides a correction of rooms of the highest level in the time domain through a unique filtering scheme which uses mixed phases. Added to this is the appeal of great ease of use, with a highly intuitive user interface and step-by-step guidance that allows for quick setup and extremely robust customization.
