  1. We've just released Dirac Live 3.0: https://live.dirac.com/download/ Improvements are listed here: https://live.dirac.com/changelog/ and users of relatively old Mac operating systems will be pleased to see that unofficial support for MacOS 10.11, 10.12 and 10.13 has been added.
  2. The result all of us try to obtain is good sound, but what "good sound" is? Good question... our answer is explained in this video: Flavio
  3. @JezQ Nothing special :) the license is associated with your account
  4. Yes, please contact us from here: http://helpdesk.dirac.se (you'll need to "Sign up for an account")
  5. We are now beta testing multichannel Dirac Live and Dirac Live Bass Control will follow... It's still possible to watch a recording of this Webinar by StormAudio about Dirac Live Bass Control... Jakob Agren explains and provides details about its inner workings: https://register.gotowebinar.com/rt/8043050009869528846 Flavio

  7. Hi shinyc, it might, thanks to the indipendent channels for subs, but that's a question for miniDSP to answer...
  8. It will take time as we have to release the multichannel version of the Dirac Live Processor first (it's a prerequisite) but the next step will be Dirac Live Bass Control. Previously known as Dirac Bass Management it adds bass control to bass management... inter-speaker support to enable room correction beyond the capability of individual speakers. Here a guide with technical details: http://diracdocs.com/Bass%20Control%20in%20Live.pdf It's targeted to the most sophisticated systems as it requires a dedicated channel for each subwoofer so that a multichannel audiocard or DAC is nec

  10. Update 1.2.0 of the Dirac Live Processor with a gain and delay compensation bugfix has just been released! @whoareyou Measuring the room "as it is during the listening session" is ideal but in my opinion avoiding that the furniture is in the path of the microphone is more important than the placement of the mic. Mic positioning is not as critical as usually thought so I'd change the mic position when necessary.
  11. Yes, I confirm but the trial versions aren't ready yet, they will be available soon but I can't say when
  12. Excellent... thorough and knowledgeable review as expected from mitchco! @sem115 one of the simple solutions for streaming Qobuz can be Audirvana that directly supports it (together wih other streaming services) and supports standard plugins as well
  13. Mitch Barnett, the author of a book about accurate sound reproduction using DSP: https://www.amazon.com/Accurate-Sound-Reproduction-Using-DSP/dp/1520977905/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr= has just published on this website a detailed review (including measurements) of Dirac Live 2 in a standalone configuration with JRiver: Excellent job Flavio
  14. If previous filters don't work one should be able to load a previous project and create new filters without having to retake measurements
  15. 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
  16. @[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
  17. 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
  18. Sure, we'll look at it this Monday (you may send me a PM with ticket number if you want)
  19. 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
  20. Maybe the plugin was an incomplete beta? (we had several issues during beta testing that have been subsequently fixed)
  21. 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)
  22. 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
  23. @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:
  24. Dirac beta plugins seem to work well with Amarra Luxe, those interested in testing them can request them at http://helpdesk.dirac.se
  25. @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
