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.


I've already tried that.
Unfortunately, this means that only a few folders are shared.
It would be nice if someone could show me a screenshot of the releases.

AFAIR this is the correct setting. I do not know why this is technically required. But after I had configured it this way dirac 2 did find the SHD Studio.

When starting dirac from the SHD plugin it is correct that just a finder window opens. You have to start dirac from this manually then.

Is the USB cable ok? Can you play music from the mac via the SHD-USB-connection? Oh, probably the SHD plugin does see the SHD. So I think this is not the problem... Maybe you should contact the support?

Hello,
I installed MacOS Mojave on an external hard drive for testing.
There the MiniDSP with Dirac 3 works without problems.
So it must be the fault of my current installation on the iMac.
Thanks for the suggestions I will probably set up my Mac again.

Same problem here:
MacBookPro, MacOS 10.15.7, miniDSP, Dirac 3.0 - all updated to newest soft-/firmware.

All was well for about a year, then I switched the MacBook to Catalina and Dirac to 3.09. Now it is nearly impossible to "connect" Dirac to the miniDSP. It's a shame...

I found a way to get it to work sometimes, try this in exact this order:

1. Switch miniDSP to USB input
2. Start Dirac software (from the Finder, NOT from the SHD plugin)
3. Start the DSP/SHD plugin software and connect to the miniDSP
4. Then press "Start Dirac live software" within the DSP/SHD software
5. Now timing is critical: Just when the Finder opens switch to the already running Dirac app and press rescan devices in the upper left corner of the Dirac software. Do NOT start Dirac again from the DSP/SHD software. Just switch over to the already running Dirac Software. This sometimes works...

This is a really poor solution. I am also using the NAD M17V2. With this processor I simply start the Dirac app and within seconds the app connects to the processor using my network. This is great. Don't know why this isn't possible with the miniDSP at least when using the miniDSP WI-DG.

In my case, with the Support we found the root cause in a partly broken usb cable
