I have done all the SHD updates and install all the plugins

I have installed DIRAC on my Mac and it never finds the SHD the install shows as complete


Need help i am assuming DIRAC uses the USB connection to find the SHD

Thanks

Yes,the problem was while the software installer said it was successful, it did not install the plugin so the Dirac icon under the MiniDSP folder never showed up

I have since re installed and again, and this time I got a full install of the plugins in the SHD and now have both icons.

I have done my first round of testing and the saving of an adjustment and all is well

Next will set aside time to do the nine point testing and adjustments.

new question I set my sub to LFE and at half gain it was to much so I set the gain to about ¼ and left the LFE setting the same , is this methodology recommended.

Thanks

A couple of things to confirm when doing update

Make sure your are using a USB cable from your computer to the SHD

make sure the front display indicates USB, as that is the connection the update uses

once the above is ready try the update again.

then find the DIRAC software installed on your computer you should then find two icons

Good Luck

I am using a USB cable from Mac to SHD.
The display of the SHD also shows USB.
What is meant by the two icons, where should I see them.
If you have a screenshot for me, please.

Thank you.

Did you laugh Dirac from the plugin? You need to. If you still can't get it to work I'd try Dirac v2 instead as there has been no official statement I've seen to say that the SHD models are compatible with v3.

The problem is with both Dirac 2 and Dirac 3.
According to the website, the SHD supports Dirac 3.

You didn't answer my question about launching Dirac from the plugin actually? Doing so is necessary.

the DIRAC APP is in the application Folder on the Mac

The folder on mine showed up multiple times but got the same screen you are seeing.

I had to reinstall the software downloaded from MiniDSP in "User Downloads" 3 or 4 times before it finally worked

Recommend printing out the update software instructions and confirm you are doing all the steps,

Understand the frustration I was there also

Once you get it to work you will need the Mic calibration file www.minidsp.com/products/acoustic-measurement/umik-1

scroll down and you find a place to put your mics serial number in and it will then provide the file you need for DIRAC

Good Luck

I started Dirac via the plugin as it is in the manual.
A Finder window opens and I start Dirac from it.

Somewhere in the manual they mention a service that you have to enable/allow on the mac. Something like share filesystem or something. I cannot remember exactly. You have to enable this so that dirac can find the SHD.

For info. on my Windows 10 laptop Dirac just opens following clicking on the plugin button. I suspect that you get a 'finder' window is indicative of the problem. I hope the post above suggests the solution to this.
