I am trying to set this program for trial in my mac mini using Audirvana. I could manage to produce a filter.

When I go to the channel test tones level page, It appears that output 1 is for my subwoofers and output 2 is for my main loudspeakers, is this so? I thought this was for left and right channels. Is this supposed to be like that?

If I try to include the subwoofers in the custom settings the option is only for 2, the rest is for 5.1 and 7.1 systems...

And I cannot turn on the DSP app window though it remains off and it says disconnected, so I do not know if I'm getting it right.
The saved project appears but it says off at the top.

I downloaded the trial version from Dirac because I want yo get the app for my Minidsp2xx4hd but it seems you do not have a trial for this. So, final question is: what I'm trying to do , is it compatible with the minidsp?

I'm listening and it sounds different so there must have been an effect on the playback with the Dirac app. Sounds kind of hollow... Any comments will b appreciated
Thanks for your help in advance.

And it is doing something because the subwoofer gain levels are much higher than before. Had to turn down the volume on their amp.. Why is this?

Sorted everything out some setup errors including a bad routing in the minidsp, except the issue concerning turning ON the Dirac dap, even with the filter loaded into it. ??

@Shadowfax

Glad to hear that you figured out the routing issue. If you're doing trial on Dirac Live for PC/MAC, easiest to contact Dirac Live directly as they know that software better. To be honest we never use that version of software (doing processing on PC) so know very little able potential issues.. Dirac team is here to help! :-)
