Dirac Research, the Swedish leaders in room correction software solutions, have announced a new, easier to use software version featuring an upgraded user interface, easier setup, and improved technical performance.

Available now, the beta version of Dirac Live is initially available for owners of Arcam, Lexicon, Audio Control and NAD Electronics products with Dirac Research saying broader availability will happen shortly.

The beta will be demonstrated at CEDIA Expo in San Diego, USA, in September at the Dirac Research booth.

Niklas Thorin, Dirac’s General Manager of High Performance Audio, said:

Dirac Live has served as the industry’s reference room correction solution since it was first unveiled over five years ago. It established a new standard in room correction technology and allowed home theater systems to achieve a new degree in acoustical perfection.

However, new UI design and technical advancements have inspired us to reimagine the Dirac Live solution for its second generation – combining the brilliance of the first-generation solution with recent market developments to usher in a new era of Dirac Live. We look forward to showcasing its beta at CEDIA 2018!

According to Dirac Research, the new version shifts the user interface from a somewhat technical process requiring a substantial knowledge, to one relying more on the highly-intuitive app to help the user ensure everything is being done correctly.

The new version is also said to include an enhanced phase correction algorithm for improved stereo reproduction.

Where the previous version of Dirac Live individually measured the phase of each stereo speaker, this new version also analyzes speakers in pairs, which ensures that the pair’s phase responses are matched to each other.

Finally, the software is said to benefit from being more widely compatible with control devices including laptops, tablets or smartphones.
