Shure announced shipment of the new DFR22 Audio Processor, a 2-in, 2-out DSP product featuring Shure's automatic digital feedback reduction algorithm (DFR). Primarily designed for the sound contracting market, the DFR22 also includes modules for equalization, dynamics processing, delay, and matrix mixing and is easily configured through a flexible, drag-and-drop Windows software interface.
"The DFR22 will give current users of our DFR11EQ and P4800 the best of both products in a new form factor. It will function as an out-of-the-box, two-channel feedback reducer, or as a fully configurable 2 x 2 device with a full complement of software-configurable audio processors," said Bob Rieder, Shure Category Director of Audio Processing Products. "It also answers the many requests we've received for a stereo version of our patented feedback reduction algorithm." The DFR22 features single-channel and stereo 5-, 10-, and 16-band DFR processing blocks. In addition, the DFR now offers an auto clear mode that removes changes to equalization made by the feedback reducer after a specified period of time. The DFR22 includes both XLR and Phoenix connectors and will appeal to the professional live sound market by functioning as a feedback reducer that does not require a computer for configuration.
The DFR22 Audio Processor takes up a single rack space and features a front panel preset selector, allowing access to as many as 16 on-board configurations.
