The upgrade of standalone to Dirac Live 2.0 will be free as it is for all current Dirac enabled products that recently upgraded.

Hi Flavio,

 

I am on the older  licensed version.

 

I downloaded and installed

Dirac live v2 for win last night, however it will not allow me to login, with my existing I'd/ pwd. I proceeded to reset my password but the new one will not work either. 

 

What did I miss doing correctly ? Could you please let me know.

 

Thanks

GR

Hi sound_cycle,

 

the download that you're referring to is the Dirac Live calibration tool that can be used by itself only with Dirac enabled AVRs and audio components.

For standalone use you also need the DiracLiveProcessor, you can apply for testing the full package here:

Thanks, Flavio

Thanks Flavio. Done that.

 

Thanks

I'm stuck with the beta

 

After installation, I fired up the dirac live processor

in Audio settings  I see asio (device type), asio for generic usb device (device) and the test button produces a tone. I left the sample rate and buffer size untouched.

When I tab to create new filter and click on measure, it brings up DLCTS ver 1.1.0 

And then nothing happens after I close DLCTS.

I'd expect a newer version of the filter creation program to start up, which for some reason is not happening. 

Uninstall and reinstall did not help. How do I get past this and create filters ?

A little RTFM, some searching and deleting in Windows Explorer followed by a reinstall and I have it going. It probably helped that  my fluid audio enhancer was not involved. The error was in choosing the wrong dirac live and created by me.

 

Doh!

 

It sounds much nicer than my v1 setup.

I rather like this v2 much. Spent much of today enjoying my listening. It is a nice SQ gain over my v1 filters, my maggies never sounded better

This is a more an audiophilia nervosa point than anything I suppose, I can get only a green light on in Roon because the Vb audiocable is OS mixer and not lossless. Any way to get that purple light signal path ?

Doh.

 

Roon outputs to VB Audio Virtual Cable.

 

Then VST host grabs this as an input and sends to my Gungnir through Dirac Live Processor.

I had not set the Roon output over WASAPI exclusive mode. With that done Roon shows the signal path as lossless.

Sorry, but as some of you talk about a beta version of Live Processor, is there a download link for registered users? I bought v. 1 some time ago and received an access key by the helpdesk. However, the only download I found was for a specific brand. Is there a standalone desktop version for Mac already?

 

Please advise.

a beta version of Live Processor

@flak

 

Hi

 

I continue to be in like with v2.

 

I miss the gain and delay there was on V1.

 

I have an acoustically  horrible room, and find that the image centre is slightly off to one side. I had settled for using the delay slider to try and sort that out. I suppose that was not the best approach.

 

But that kludge/solution is not accessible with the beta. How to sort that out ? 

 

I also have a query about level matching before the measurement. The improvements to the interface make it more intuitive and informative. I find that it difficult to get both channels exactly the same, I suppose that the number presented is the average level, the best match I manage is +/- 0.2 db with the mouse. Does this matter.

 

Finally is this the place to post these or is there another preferred and proper way.

Hi,

with reference to your image being slightly off to one side did you try lifting a bit the target curve of the channel on the other side leaving the first one untouched?

It will help us if you'll contact us at http://helpdesk.dirac.se/

thanks

Thanks Flavio.

 

Will do that. I have been working with the channels grouped will try out your suggestion.

Dirac did reply back to me and I appreciate that. GR, what are you using for playback with Dirac?

 

MAK

Roon, Schiit Gumby+saga*+Vidar/monobloc into Magnepan 1.7i, REL t9/i

(*I know, there was a time when I said xlr ? me?)

Dirac have written back to me. Hope to have it running again this evening

Got V2 installed and running. And the sound quality is very nice. I was running v1 and the betas before and I think I have something much better than what I had previously realized. Which I would attribute largely to the v2 and a small bit to measurement technique (which I kind of adapted from the walk through on V2 by mitchco)

 

I note a couple of issues and am posting to figure out whether it is windows / my set up or it is something that I should flag to the Dirac helpdesk. (I am running v2 on a win10 pc, with Roon and VXThost)

1) switching filters creates an audible click and a red clipping indicator comes on, on one of the channels (on the VU bars in the vxthost panel)

 

2) Likely as not the system does not make the swtich but gets "stuck" on playing a small bit of music 

 

What do you think ? 

 

thanks

gr
