Just installed Dirac Live Calibration Tool v1.2.41.8863 on my Imac for the MiniDSP88A (BM), all went well but when I want to do a output level calibration the Dirac live tool is not recording any sound from my Umik-1 :(

When opening (on my Imac) system preferences / sound / input it's recording just fine.

Whit the previous installed Dirac Live tool there wasn't any problem



Anyone an idea??

I have the exact same problem. The Mac sees the mic and recognizes input from it. Start DLCT and it sees the 88A and mic and loads the calibration file no problem. Once at the input and output levels screen though, DLCT does not register sound from the UMIK-1.

Mac OS Mojave 10.14.5
DLCT version 1.2.41
DDRC-88A with firmware V2.2
UMIK-1

It might be best contacting MiniDSP support at support.minidsp.com

I had the same issue. MiniDSP support indicates that DiracLive will not run on Mojave. What version of OSX are you running?

They are working on an updated version that does support Mojave. They will send you a link to the new version to try.

The solution :)

Hello Mario

Is it possible that you’re running Mojave? If so, please make sure to run the DLCT build that is under the userdownloads section.
That’s the one that is compatible with Mojave.

Hoping this info helps and feel free to contact us if you have further questions.

Best Regards

DevTeam

Hi All,

Installed the latest DDRC-24 v1.8d2 and the Dirac Live V2.3.0 build 242-d3109be6 on a Mojave installed MacBook Air.
Everything works except I'm stuck at the same issue as posted above, with no sound passing through from the uMik-1 to the Dirac Live software. Signal from the uMik is testet in other apps to be working.

Any clues ? Can't seem to find the "DLCT build that is under the userdownloads section.That’s the one that is compatible with Mojave." other than what I already downloaded.

Help please,

Thank you

Henrik

I have the same problem. It looks like maybe this newest build of Dirac isn't getting proper access to the microphone through CoreAudio. In Mojave, an application has to put up a dialog asking for permission to use the microphone before it gets audio; at least I believe so. When you go into Security settings, it doesn't list that Dirac has requested access to my microphone like my other recording applications.

I have the same problem. Mojave (V 10.14.6). The OS "sees" the UMIK-1 in the Sounds settings section, and "sees" signal modulation from it. DIRAC Live is not registering any signal from it, and I too, have nothing listed that has requested access to the microphone. Interestingly, REW is working fine with the UMIK-1; I'd conclude that means this is SOLIDLY a bug in the DIRAC software. At the direction of the DevTeam, I have tried 3 releases of DIRAC Live, from current to current -2. I'm still awaiting a resolution from the DevTeam.

My experience is that with the current release of Mojave, one must install the v2.2 of Dirac after updating the DDRC_22 installer for Dirac 2 from Minidsp. I've had troubles with the firmware updater as there are some issues which the dev team is aware of. That being said, on launching Dirac, the app should ask for permission to access your Umik-1 and then you can proceed to take measurements. Later versions of Dirac (2.23 and 2.3) will not work; they either crash or do not request access to the microphone, based on my experience. Note: Minidsp recommends using Dirac 2.2 with Mojave.

I got it working on the DL 2.3 on Mojave by first starting it from the SHD Plugin, then quiting and starting it again manually.
DL then noticed the microphhone access attempt.

OMG!! Bless you, jstore! It worked exactly as you said it should! There goes the rest of my day... LOL!!!

I'm forwarding this to the MiniDSP DevTeam; I have been back and forth with them for a little over a week, and nothing productive, yet!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!

Glad I could help. Those security frameworks protecting the microphone don't look kindly software launching other software . The key is getting the bridge running so DL can find the device.

Dear All

FYI that we've released a new build to hopefully nail this issue of Dirac not getting the correct access to the UMIK-1 due to security limitations behind the scenes. You can also manually solve the issue from: System Preferences" -> "Security & Privacy" -> "Privacy" tab, select Microphone from the left and toggle once more time (uncheck and check) the checkbox of SHD/DDRC-24/DDRC-22. It will enable access to the microphone.

Thanks for your patience and community feedback!

I tried unchecking/rechecking DIRAC in the Settings/Security and Privacy on the Microphone; this did not resolve the issue. I still have to manually start DIRAC rather than starting it from the MiniDSP application, in order for it to be able to access the Mic.

I went to look for the new build, but the newest I see is V2.3, dated 11/13/2019. Where can I download the new build to see if it works?
