I believe there is a bug in the Dirac Live tool on OS X Mojave using the UMIK-1. When I try to run calibration the mic isn't capturing any audio. When I try to open the mic with REW as an alternative, it works fine once I've upgraded to the latest beta of REW and granted microphone access in OS X -> General -> Security -> Privacy (part of the new OS X privacy sandboxing in Mojave). I took a look at the Dirac Live tool maintained by Dirac, and their most recent build has fixed this Mojave access issue and documented it in their release notes.

Is this a known issue? Are others experiencing it? IS there a work around (downgrading OS X isn't really an option for me)? If it is a known issue, any chance of backporting the Dirac change to the version that works with Mini DSP so this works on Mojave?

Has anyone else had success using the tool on Mojave? Any tricks to getting this to work I should try?

@bmeek

There is indeed a little bug on Mojave + Dirac 1.0 for multichannel. There is a build under the user downloads section that solves this.

I only have access to the c-dsp download section. Have you fixed that tool as well?

Same issue here.

I just got my 8x12DL and updated the firmware & reset it. I've got music playing from the toslink to a 4 speaker system just fine.

The DLCT cal process works up until the sweeps. The sweeps sound fine (90db+) on each of the four speakers, but there is no meter level readout in the DLCT from the UMIK1, and the cal fails because "level is too low".

I'm using Mojave 10.14.5. I don't see any special files in the user downloads that relate to DLCT or Mojave?

Edit: I've been into the Mojave audio settings and it shows I've given access to other audio programs (audacity, etc), but DLCT doesn't even show up on this list to allow access to?

I too just started doing trying c-dsp dirac correction on macos, and I get the same issues: When I play the test signals in the outputs & levels tab of the dirac program, the level meters do not show any signal; there is no blue level indication. Furthermore when I hit proceed and tried to do a measurement, the dirac program crashes on my mac in the middle of the measurement. I had downloaded the macos software and updated the firmware a couple of days ago, so I should have the latest versions, yet the problem occurs and I can't get past it.

I can verify that my u-mik1 is not dead because it does show levels when I connect to it in fuzzmeasure demo.

@devteam, is the previous post correct that you posted a fix but not for c-dsp, and if so can we expect a fix for c-dsp dirac?

I'm having this same issue, no level readout in DLCT using UMIK-1 and halfway through the measurement sweeps the application just crashes.
DLCT has not asked operating system (macOS 10.14.6) for permission to use the microphone, unlike REW which has been granted mic access. Just downloaded everything and updated firmware on a non-DL C-DSP today, so everything is newest available in the user download section.

The DLCT version provided in the download is version-1.2.41.8863 with a build date of May 9th, 2019.

Main board firmware 2.6 - Sept 6th, 2019

C-DSP 8x12DL app version 1.7 - Sept 15th, 2019

On one hand it is great to see that I'm not the only one, but on the other hand....... :)

I've been using an Asus netbook so far with the plug in and with DL - small, convenient....but terrible trackpad, etc. I was happy when I downloaded the software on my 15" MacBook Pro, and the Plug In worked flawlessly - much better, faster than the netbook (and Mac OS instead of Windows....).

Last night - just wanted to do a quick 2 channel DL run....Mic didn't show - in Settings - Sound - the Mic was showing up just fine, but in the DL software - nothing. I have Mojave as well, and I just checked the Security setting that the OP helpfully provided, and DL doesn't show as a program asking for permission - not sure how to force that. Hopefully by tagging on here, I'll see a solution. I grabbed the netbook last night night and was just about to Synchronize Configuration when I stopped and asked a friend about that.....NO!......was his answer......I would have pushed what was on the netbook on to the DSP, replacing what was on the DSP that had been done with the Mac - Thank Goodness for knowledgeable friends!

I've had to use Parallels so I can run my Win10 Bootcamp installation at the same time, using macOS for miniDSP plugin and win10 for DLCT. Not ideal, but it works. When switching between the 2 tools, since you can't bind a USB device to both operating systems at the same time, you have to unplug then replug the C-DSP USB cable and choose which OS it will be used on, but you can at least have both tools open at the same time this way.
