  1. If previous filters don't work one should be able to load a previous project and create new filters without having to retake measurements
  2. Important updates! Dirac Live 2.4.1 and Dirac Live Processor 1.1.0 can now be downloaded here: https://live.dirac.com/download/ You'll get Dirac Live 2.4.1 even if still labeled 2.4 on the page and higher sampling rates like 192 kHz are now supported by the Dirac Live Processor Flavio
  3. @Br[email protected] Arcam, AudioControl, Focal, Lexicon, Monoprice, NAD and StormAudio (alphabetical order) already support Dirac Live 2.x... Emotiva and JBL Synthesis will hopefully be available soon: JBL Synthesis Intros SDP-55 Surround Sound Processor, SDR-35 16-Channel AVR
  4. We got reports (thanks Tom Reich) that there can be issues between Audirvana 3.5 and the Dirac Live Processor while Audirvana 3.2 seems to work as expected. We'll try to know from the developer what has been changed between those two versions and hopefully find a solution together. In the meantime (in case of issues) one can try using Audirvana 3.2 with Dirac to then use the created processor also in Audirvana 3.5 The latest 1.0.2 Dirac Processor is now available here: https://live.dirac.com/download/ On Mac please remove the Dirac Processor files from these locations: /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3 /Library/Application Support/Avid/Audio/Plug-Ins to then restart the computer itself and install the DLP On Windows I suggest the following: 1) Uninstall all previous versions of Beta Dirac Live processor in Settings > Apps under Apps&features 2) Delete folder C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Dirac\Dirac_Live_Processor If you want to save your filters, please move folder "filters" to a temporary location 3) Restart Windows and download the released Processor version from https://live.dirac.com/download/ If you moved your filter, now move them back to C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Dirac\Dirac_Live_Processor
  5. Sure, we'll look at it this Monday (you may send me a PM with ticket number if you want)
  6. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, we are looking into that but on the other hand I'd like to outline that we upgrade, free of charge, even licenses that have been purchased in 2012 and the new version is expected to be valuable for many other years to come... a good long term investment in my (biased) opinion
  7. Maybe the plugin was an incomplete beta? (we had several issues during beta testing that have been subsequently fixed)
  8. My understanding is that there is no compatibility issue, Roon simply doesn't support standard AU, VST plugins nor AAX ones so the only solution seems to be a virtual cable like Audio Hijack: http://diracdocs.com/Roon_&_Dirac_Live_2.0.pdf (exclusive audio should be disabled when using Audio Hijack as that bypasses their audio capture engine)
  9. We are looking into automatically migrating the Dirac Live 1.x licenses so that Dirac Live 1.x owners will be able to use the new Dirac Live Processor together with the Dirac Live 2.3 calibration tool. I don't now how will we proceed with owners of multichannel licenses as the multichannel version of the Dirac Live Processor isn't ready yet. Flavio
  10. @jaaptina I think that your approach is quite reasonable and a sort of "BBC dip" is preferred by many, I'm not sure though that the following are as good an idea, personally I'd smoothen them unless you incur into clipping:
  11. Dirac beta plugins seem to work well with Amarra Luxe, those interested in testing them can request them at http://helpdesk.dirac.se
  12. @Deribas as Kal said multichannel isn't ready yet and is a work in progress but if you'll contact us at http://helpdesk.dirac.se we will be pleased to send you a Dirac Live 2.x beta for JRiver 25 together with instructions for manually configuring it for multichannel, that probably isn't the approach that will be used when it will be released but it works: https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/37813-new-second-generation-dirac-live/page/20/?tab=comments#comment-1009005 Flavio
  13. miniDSP's Dirac enabled processors now support Dirac Live 2.x (stereo only, multichannel will come) nice to read this indipendent user's comment: https://www.avnirvana.com/threads/in-your-experience-will-room-correction-level-the-playing-field-between-speakers.5956/
  14. Hi, if you find a page that requires login that is browser related and should be fixed on our side, in the meantime you can use a browser like Firefox for Windows or Mac
  15. Hi gazza49, no log in is necessary for contacting us at http://helpdesk.dirac.se, one only has to enter his email and message. Please kindly write us at the above URL, we'll also be able to send you the latest updates... we now have builds 0.9.36 :) Thanks for your time, Flavio
  16. Hello, it will help us in troubleshooting the beta if you'll send your bug reports, comments and findings to http://helpdesk.dirac.se instead of here... thanks for your cooperation Flavio
  17. Hello, you are seeing two instances of the DLP, I think that the first one is the previous version... if so please uninstall it. No audio output when you check the Dirac box in JRiver DSP Studio is expected behaviour, when you'll launch Dirac Live and you'll start a measurement the audio stream is replaced by the sweep of the test signal. Please try starting from scratch, first play an audio track wih JRiver then launch Dirac Live, you should see one instance of the DLP so select it. Now take measurements and create a new filter. Being these betas some changes have been applied so that unfortunately you'll not be able to use filters created with previous versions. Also switching the filter off in DLP will crash JRiver... this is a known bug, currently it can only be disabled in JRiver itself.
  18. Here the latest news... We have new 0.9.31 betas of plugins (now including AAX) and a new Dirac Live 2.3 Now the plugin is added and opened from within the player or DAW If interested they are available by opening a new ticket at HelpDesk: http://helpdesk.dirac.se That's new as well
  19. Hi Steve, you should have received new downloads with a later expiry date, if not please let us know, thanks
  20. Thanks macuniverse, the plugin not saving the level setting so that one can incur into digital clipping unless he sets it again is a confirmed bug, it will be fixed in a future release
  21. Yes, thanks Michelangelo, the developers are aware of the issue when changing sample rate that you have reported
  22. We have learnt that a colour blindness of some of our Dirac Live users makes it very difficult for them to use the 2.x calibration tool. I'm pleased to inform that a dedicated colour scheme will be included in the next release. Flavio
  23. @whoareyou we now have a new version of the DiracLiveProcessor that you might check for the headroom adjustment. The ”Measure” tab has been removed and Dirac Live no longer should be invoked via the processor, instead it can be opened separately and Dirac Live Processor will appear as a device to be selected when Dirac Live will be launched. Also VU-meters and clipping indicators have been added. Available as usual on request from here: http://helpdesk.dirac.se/ Thanks, Flavio
  24. Hi whoareyou, every EQ (including Dirac Live) needs headroom in order to be able of boosting those frequencies that require it without incurring in digital clipping, as a result the output level is reduced and that needs to be compensated by the volume control. With reference to setting levels I suggest the following... adjust the "Master output" to a “normally loud” listening level, not disturbingly loud but not too low either. In doing so you might see a red lock that will inhibit increasing the volume further, it's a safety measure that can be unlocked by clicking on it. Now check if the levels reach the middle of the green, if so proceed with measurements.. if not gradually increase "Mic gain", up to maximum if necessary. If increasing "Mic gain" to maximum is not sufficient then increase "Master output" as required to reach the green. This procedure is aimed at optimising the ratio between the volume of test signal and ambient noise for more accurate measurements but if you want to be extra safe you can instead start by adjusting "Mic gain" to maximum to then gradually increase "Master output" until the test signal reaches the green. Flavio
  25. A beta tester sent the following valuable input: Level is not automatically reduced by -8db as for Dirac Live 1.x, but when reducing the level by -8db in the VST plugin in JRiver (right hand site level bar in the DiracLiveProcessor) digital clipping should be avoided. Also the above setting is not saved so that it has to be entered again. I expect that those bugs will be fixed in the new version that we hope to make available within the expiry date of the current DLP builds
