Hi,

I just set up my 10x10HD crossover and it went very well. I liked it so much, I got a second 10x10HD crossover ( I need 7 inputs and 15 outputs for my actively crossed speakers) to replace a dead Xilica crossover I had been using.

My macbook pro is using Mojave 10.14.6.

I can't get the second copy of the plug-in to open. In Finder, I renamed my first copy miniDSP1 and the second copy miniDSP2, but when I try to open the second copy, nothing happens.

It must be possible to have two different operating copies, but I haven't had any luck. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Dave

Hi, that's won't work anyway, one computer can't "talk" to more than one USB-connected hardware unit at a time.

[Update] I wonder if it's possible to use a VM to work around this.
I am not miniDSP support.

Hi John,

Thank you for your reply. I was just trying to do an offline setup of my second crossover unit. I had hoped I could open a version of the plug-in for each 10x10HD.
I realized later that I can just use a separate configuration for each unit: Config1 for the first unit and Config2 for the second. I won't have many choices this way, but that's no problem. I'll just have to be sure I don't have Config1 living on the second unit, etc.
