Dirac live 2 digital room correction software walkthrough. By using mixedphase correction we can enable impulse response correction. Dirac live is unique in that it actually corrects the impulse response throughout the listening area, not just at a single point. Dirac live technology is a room acoustics software for both home audio. You can download the dirac live calibration tool desktop software version. Dirac live is unique in that it improves the impulse response throughout the listening area, not just in a particular zone. Dirac live calibration tool also corrects the time domain response of the loudspeaker. By focusing on consistent problems across the measurement positions and correcting only these anomalies, dirac live can achieve a faster decay time. A first main aim is to control not only the frequency domain properties of the system but also the time domain properties.
Based on the measurement and analysis of impulse responses, the tool supports a variety of measurement configurations. The next diagram illustrates a perfect impulse response of a loudspeaker, the measured impulse response, and the impulse response after correction with dirac live. Dirac live is a room correction algorithm developed by dirac research ab of. The system in its newest form also features impulse and magnitude response correction on par with or technically better than dirac live, and it allows for all the sorts of targetcurveshaping. Howto record impulse responses digitally jaakko pasanen. The dirac live algorithm suggests a target response appropriate for your listening environment and speakers, which you can of course adjust to your taste using our simple graphical interface. Dirac is a valuable acoustics measurement tool for field and laboratory acoustics engineers, researchers and educational institutions.
