I wonder if the nanoAVR DL will have enough processing power for this.
I took aguess last year: I guess not and I sold my unit. Hopefully 2 things will happen: new nanAvr-DL with Dirac 2 and the possiblity to bass manged in order to correct the flaw of having BM downstream instead of upstream.
I lost only half of my guess in any case!

1. You can do BM upstream of a nanoAVR DL: just buy a nanoAVR HD too. :laugh:

2. I don't think BM downstream of DL is a flaw: you get to correct for phase non-linearities in the BM crossover (almost certainly a 4th order Linkwitz-Riley) However you do have to ensure levels and delays are matched to the primary listening position before you apply DL and you can't do funky things that require phase correlation between channels like Dolby Pro Logic or phantom centers. I used to think BM downstream of DL was a bad idea, but not so much anymore.

With Dirac, processing of measurements and creation of filters is done using a PC, so all the miniDSP Dirac series has to do is load the filters and apply them to the outgoing audio. Dirac 2 doesn’t change that so I’m would assume all miniDSP Dirac series products will be able to use the new filters. Version 2 does increase sampling rate ability up to 192kHz for devices with processors that can work to this rate but one would assume it can be rate limited for devices that cannot work that hard. Pretty sure v1 for some devices (Mac/Win) already allows for higher sampling rates.

I'm aware that Dirac Live uses the PC to compute IIR and FIR filters. What I was wondering is if the resulting filters would be more computationally complex (e.g. more FIR taps) in 2.0 than 1.0.

Hello

i have interrested for test beta 2
if you can Sign me up for beta testing on Mac OsX

thanks

Hey guys,

any updates on Dirac 2.0 upgrade for the DDRC-24 and the other Dirac Live products?

Can‘t wait for it!

Hi DevTeam,

i will post here in correct old topic too. Is there only the DDRC24 for the first test where you are waiting for Dirac or will there be a DDRC88BM test too? In AVS Forum there would be many DDRC88 testers if you want some for Beta :) Or is there a technical issue why Dirac 2.0 will be more difficult to implement to DDRC88?

I can only speak for me but i would pay for the Dirac 2.0 upgrade on my DDRC88 when it's a fair price.

Thanks.
Regards,
Ben

It seems everyone wants to be a beta tester
I am signed up also

However , I want to use in car , and the comb filtering features in 2.0 I think are going to prove invaluable in car. I seem to always run a DRC than have to capture the impulse in REw and make changes for comb Filtering and send changes to a upstream sharc ...which has been working quite well and I’ve gotten quite good at knowing what to do and more importantly how to do it.
I would be very curious how 2.0 handles these car related driver and room interactions being left side biased and in two seat listening with unequal path lengths ...

I have a ddrc and 2x4hds waiting for the beta firmware to take it on a spin....

I would have no problem buying a 88BM to try on multi-way or a nano8DL ——

I would hope that it’s 48k instead of 96k for some of us that want/need the flexibility in the correction due to severe listening environment.

Patiently waiting :-)

Dear All

Finally, the good news came in from Dirac team being able to move over our customer licenses to the new server!!
It would have been hard to start a beta test without a Dirac license... ;-)

We're therefore excited to get this process started! If you're a miniDSP customer running Win10, have a DDRC-22/24 platform and want to give a trial at the Dirac 2.0 platform, please go over to the following link and register your interest:
forms.gle/pgB2JwgojHicw2gd7

We'll enable access to your user downloads shortly after so you can start to have a trial at it.

For those of you who don't fit within the requirements of this beta test, don't despair. It's step#1. :-)

Have a great week end,

DevTeam

Is the beta available for SHD usesrs?

Hope that didn’t mess anyone up and can still get beta


Woot woot ! :woohoo:

Can’t wait to give it a spin and help work out any issues :evil:

Does it mean that all beta testers will get eventually a final release for free?

Hi Devteam,

thanks for the good news. Will there be a Beta test for DDRC88 later (maybe in Step #2?) :silly:

Thanks.

Hehe made the same mistake started to fill in the form and there I had to fill in the platform, I was like :huh:
Hopefully there will be some upgrade for the 88 platform as well
