Hi all
When watching a film sometimes the voice, centre is a bit low, can you increase its level from the remote whilst still watching the film?
Thanks

Just up the db of the centre speaker in the levels menu

Do you mean low in volume or low in audio placement? If placement then Dirac should resolve that.

Sorry a bit thick about all this, Dirac is set up ok and most things are fine it seems to be more on Netflix when watching a film with or without Atmos it seems hard to hear the voice Chane. I just want a way of just upping the voice whilst watching the film then back down again after with out having to go into the set up.
Thanks

The quickest, and possibly only way, is to go into the main speaker levels and increase the level of the centre speaker.

If you’ve got full Dirac live setup file, you can alter the gain just for the centre channel across voice frequency range. The Dirac if properly measured should sort that out for you though, as it measures the signal through the channel before amplification. I.e. it shouldn’t affect one source and not another?

The UMIK 1 calibration mic cost and time to set up is worth the effort. I got much better calibration than the box included/ standard mic; transforms the sound placement and balance.
