TOPIC: Dirac live tool not recording sound from Umik-1

Dirac live tool not recording sound from Umik-1 5 months 1 week ago #47017

I have this same problem running Mac OS Catalina, Dirac Live v1.2.41, DDRC-88a. Suggested fixes of opening Dirac from applications folder don't work. Mac shows input from UMIK-1 but Dirac Live Calibration Tool shows no input from the mic. UMIK-1 doesn't appear in Mac's Microphone section of security settings so nothing to turn off and on. Any solutions? Thanks

Unless there has been an update to DIRAC Live for MAC, my understanding is that it isn't compatible with Catalina, at all. And for that very reason, I am still at Mojave. That said, I admit to not having kept up with this topic for a while - I've got amplifier issues I am dealing with, and will not be furthering my experience with MiniDSP/DIRAC until those are resolved.

Thanks. Looks like I'll be dragging my old iMac running High Sierra down to the living room then.

Yes it woks:
Opening the ddrc24 plugin, starting Dirac Live from there, quitting Dirac Live, starting it again directly from the programs folder.

Hello to all,

I am still disappointed by the management of microphone access bug on Mojave and later. Does anybody succeed in allowing it for dirac live v2 or v1 ? I am still using high sierra !

Regards,
Bertrand.

The solution is described above:
start dirac live from the ddrc plugin and connect ddrc. close dirac live, open it again out of the programm folder. that‘s it. (mojave,DL2.4)

With all due respect, that is not a solution, rather, it is a workaround. A solution is a version that does not require doing this.

This workaround worked also for me but I really hope they will fix it asap!
My setup: SHD + umik1 + mac mini 2018 (mac os mojave)

Workaround works for me as well. Happy that I now hope I can put frustration around this issue behind me. Let's see how the measurement stages go.

I have a similar issue. I'm running Mojave 10.14.6 with DDRC-24
Version 1.10d2 with Dirac Live 2.5.3.

I start Dirac Live from DDRC-24, I'm able to select my Umik1, add my calibration file, Set my speaker levels, run the first sweep but that's as far as I ever get. No matter what I do, I end up with the same result. "Low Signal to Noise Level"

Can anyone shed some light on this? I've spent so much time trying to get this to work.

Thanks.

Got it!.
Followed the work around.
Launch Dirac Live from DDRC-24, close Dirac live, re-open from application directory. Was then presented with popup screen to allow software to use microphone.

Working well now.

Thanks.
