Hi,

Followed all the instructions of the Dirac Live 2.0 pdf manual for my SHD Studio, updated firmware, loaded SHD plugin and connected to device, selected refresh DSP.... problem is, there is no 'Start Dirac Live Software' button to the left of the 'Dirac Live On/Off'.

I am on a mac. Can you please check your SHD plugin for the SHD plugin v1.7 to ensure you haven't forgot to include the 'Start Dirac Live Software' button in this software release.

My SHD Studio is connected to my network using a miniDSP WI DG in repeater mode.

Thanks

Look at the bottom of the download page there is the 1.7d software package.

ok, so now at least Dirac Live 2.2.3 detects the miniDSP SHD Studio (even though it displays as just SHD in Dirac Live)... however when it goes to connect, after asking for microphone access, it crashes unexpectedly.... happens everytime now when selecting the device in dirac live 2.0

I've attached the crash dump to this post as an attachment

dirac live 2.0 is only available if my shd studio is connected via wi-fi? can't use it through a usb connection?
at the moment I installed the new plugin, etc but dirac live 2.0 couldn't detect my shd studio

Ok .. first is a little irritating, that in Manual stays 2.0 and we have 2.2.3
Then there is actually no update of the firmware or it gets not really clear what is firmware ... at least XMOS_Firmware is the same
And finally I dont see any button like described ...

So, starting DLCT is leading only to:




What i am missing :( :unsure:
SHD studio → Chord Qutest

I think like me you have downloaded the wrong 1.7 software. On top of the SHD window it should say version 1.7d (with"d")!

On the minidsp user download page scroll down and you will see the 1.7d Dirac 2.0 verion software.

Also, it needs Windows 10.

wtf ... the install file is the same, but when you start the install you get another version ... :ohmy:
Ok, with this version I got the button, refreshed the DSP Program, started the dirac live but still couldn't find the device.
Decided to reinstall also the WIN-drivers ... but now something other gone wrong, because even windows dont detect the device any more :angry: ... not connection whatsoever and cant do anything more :unsure:
And yes ... is win 7 64bit ... will be pretty bad if only win 10 works :blink:

Dirac Live 2.0 is not detecting my SHD Studio either on my MacBook, even though I followed the instructions. It was working with Dirac 1.x.

Since I'm still running Sierra, I might have to go through the pain of upgrading to Mojave, since Dirac states that High Sierra and Mojave are supported and MiniDSP states that only Mojave is supported from their side.

I'm wondering if it really will solve the issue...

got it working on macOS, but to fix the microphone crashing issue had to download version 2.2.2 instead of 2.2.3
