What is the difference between Dirac Live and DLCT 1.x?
New Dirac Live includes an enhanced phase correction algorithm for improved imaging. Additionally, where the previous version of Dirac Live individually measured the phase of each speaker, this new version also analyzes speakers in pairs. The measurement process is improved as well (and consequently the results) with the possibility of up to 17 measurements and two options for sofa setting (focused or wide imaging).
The new software is designed to be easily modified. The first such update is the bass management addon for Dirac Live, to be released in 2019.
You will not be able to load projects created with DLCT 1.x. However, in order to be able to load saved projects created with the new version Dirac Live you will need an account, if you do not have an account, please click here: https://live.dirac.com/register.
Why does my speaker appear as “Fullrange” when it is set to “Small” on the unit itself?
This information only discriminates between subwoofers and regular speakers and does not correlate to the small/large setting typically used in AVRs to indicate if a speaker will be bass managed or not.
Why is there only one channel to calibrate in the mobile application?
For the mobile application we use channel zero to do the calibration (typically front left channel) and will assume that this value is reasonable for the complete system. For more detailed control over the calibration process we recommend the desktop version.
In the desktop version you are at liberty to choose how many positions to measure in order to proceed to the next step, however more measurements are better and we recommend to go through all the measurement positions before proceeding to Filter design.
In the mobile application all positions (how many depends on selected setting) must be measured before proceeding to Filter design.
