Hi SteveS1,

 

I'm sorry but I have to confirm that the DiracLiveProcessor requires a newer Mac OSX, maybe you have access to a Windows 10 PC?

 

I weakened, helped by a good deal on a 2014 Mini.  Should be able to try Beta 2 next week.


Mac Mini/Audirvana with Dirac Live -Stello U3 - Weiss DAC202 - Lavardin IT-15 - ART Emotion Sigs.  Beyerdynamic T5p (2nd Gen) & Sennheiser IE800s.

I too bought a mac mini to play music,i updated the operating system when prompted,there was no warning from Dirac that there software would no longer work,i have not used dirac now for over a year  was looking forward to version 2, downloaded it and was then told needed a later version of high sierra. so basically my mac as a music player with room correction is now bricked, wont work with version 1 or 2. not happy

Thanks for the information, might be a bit complicated for me .My son in law is going to  load windows 10 as a dual boot.

Dont think I will ever buy apple again,

I am pretty sure my Mac mini of the same vintage thatr runs the older standalone Dirac is updated to 10.14.  Why would you be limited bon MacOS when it should update for free?  Am I missing something?  I have not messed around with the new beta yet.  I would like to but am concerned about all the issues people are reporting here and just want my system to work.

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.

 

GR

What's the latest 2.0 DL (Dirac Live) alpha/beta? I have 0.9.23 installed on my Macbook Pro running MacOS 10.14.6.

 

I'm using the standalone version. My input to DL 2.0 is UMIK-1. When I run DiracLiveProcessor and click on "Audio Settings" I only see output selection field.  Input selection (UMIK-1) field is missing. Can I assume that UMIK-1 already selected? MacOS sees UMIK-1 in Audio Midi setup (fix to 48KHz).

 

I select "Create New Filter" tab and click on "Measure" it opens a file selection dialog box. I have no idea what it's looking for as there is no message to guide the user. 

 

I'm stuck and any assistance appreciated.

I had similar issue. I just removed 0.9.23 from my 2011 MBP updated to Mojave via Dosdudes’s patch method. Rebooted and installed Processor ver 0.9.11 and I could select the UMIK1. 
 

Hope this works for you too. 
 

However in the next step once I click measure- DL 2.2.3 opens and throws an error “selected mic is disconnected” and crashes. Read in upthread that privacy settings might be blocking DL from accessing UMIK. Will fix that setting and report back.

If you are using the standalone Dirac Live 2.x beta with High Sierra you can try using version 2.2 of the calibration tool, you'll find it here:

If you'll find issues nonetheless please contact us from here: http://helpdesk.dirac.se/

thanks

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

I checked the privacy setting. Dirac Processor has access to Mic (obvious), but I don’t see Dirac Live there (see screenshot). 
 

second screenshot shows Dirac Live throwing error and crashes. 
 

@flak am I missing anything? Lemme know if I need to raise a support ticket

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

Hi,

if you'll want to test the standalone Dirac Live 2.x beta with High Sierra you should use version 2.2 from here:

https://live.dirac.com/all-released-versions/

you might find issues.. that's the purpose of beta testing and you may wait for an officially released version,

we have received positive comments though so I think you can try it if you want

Thanks for the reply. I have logged a report with Dirac. See what comes out of it.

Version 2.2.3 of the Dirac Live calibration tool has brought some changes one has to be aware of..

- The mic should not be selected anymore in the Audio Settings of the DiracLiveProcessor, it should be selected in the "Select recording device" page after Dirac Live has been invoked.

- The DiracLiveProcessor will not find Dirac Live in the previous location because it has changed, the first time one clicks "Measure" in the DiracLiveProcessor it's necessary to point it to DiracLive.exe along this path:

C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Dirac\Live

 

Needless to say these complications will be avoided in the final release,

thanks for your time in testing it
