Dear Members,

I have downloaded the new Dirac Live version 2.3 on my Mac laptop (Mojave version 10.14.4) and the SHD Studio. When I launch Dirac Live, it recognizes both the SHD Studio and the Umik1. However, when I start the calibration of the microphone by emitting a pink noise, the vertical bars showing the intensity of the signal in dB appear nowhere in Dirac Live. It appears like if the Umik1 is deaf. However, it works well when I use Rew on the same laptop. I have the same issue when I use another Umik 1. A friend of mine, who installed the same Dirac Live upgrade on PC, tried to help me, still without success. Thanks for your help if you know how to fix the issue!

Olivier.

Can you post a screenshot?

Here are two screenshots. The first one indicates that Umik1 is well connected and the second one shows the screen during calibration. The bars are missing...

I get the same thing :( Tried both DL 2.3 and tried to go back to the earlier 2.2.3. That's a very strange bug. I've been using Windows for my calibrations but I thought it worked on this Mac before .....

I think the only thing for you to do is open a support ticket... support.minidsp.com/support/home

@Olivier

Would you please trial with Dirac 2.2.2 to see if the issue is still here?
live.dirac.com/all-released-versions/

Some older mac running Mojave are not behaving the same on Dirac. They are aware of it and trying to solve it.

dear dev team

same issue here. umik shows up as a recording device, but no there's no input level in volume calibration. i also tried to do a measurement, it failed.

i first tried dirac 2.3, then tried with 2.2.2. the problem persists.

i add (1) a screenshot of the umik being available as a recording device and (2) a screenshot which shows no inupt level in volume calibration, although in the system preferences of the mac, the level that the umik monitors is visible.

thank you in advance for your help

Dear All,

Please make sure that you're running the latest build from our user downloads section that should solve this issue of the UMIK-1 not being enabled for recording. You can also manually check from here: System Preferences" -> "Security & Privacy" -> "Privacy" tab, select Microphone from the left and toggle once more time (uncheck and check) the checkbox of SHD. It will enable access to the microphone.

I have the same problem with Umik-1 and Dirac. REW works fine with Umik-1, it connected also to Dirac, but there is no Level when I tried to do volume-calibration.
Shd isn‘t shown in the tab.
I have tried every version, all failed.
Best regards
Frank

did you see the post by tdarst in topic ‚error message: „samples lost during recording“‘?

it‘s crude but it worked for me. i recommend to read the rest of his (original) post, too..

i.e.:
„Yes. I made a similar post; another user suggested the following, and it worked:

1) Connect computer to the SHD, and UMIK to the computer.
2) Start the MiniDSP plug-in.
3) Click "Start Dirac Live software" button in the plug-in.
4) When Dirac opens, make sure the Mic is recognized and the calibration file is loaded.
5) Close Dirac live software, and immediately re-open it directly from the Apps folder (Launch Menu - not from the plug-in). The first time you do it, the OS should prompt you to grant Dirac access to the Mic. Do it (failure to get this prompt has been the problem all along!).
6) At this point, head on to the level calibration screen, make some noise and you should see a signal registering beside the Mic level graphic.

If so, you're in business, and can proceed with measurements.„
