Yes, this is a YADI - Yet Another Dirac Integration post.
This time from a “sharing the pain points” angle
Roon things we can’t do when using Dirac Live:
- Identify our RoonReady connected device through the Dirac virtual sound card
- Use Device Volume control with our RoonReady connected device
- Use HQPlayer properly (no point in upsampling to the 192kHz max Dirac virtual sound card)
- Use a network connected RoonReady endpoint
Dirac is a popular software and by far best fit to Roon’s UX philosophy out of all the Room Correction software available today.
Dirac has made a VST plugin available as another option in addition to its Virtual sound card (DAP) so no need for specific joint integration effort - implement VST and all the above is solved in addition to any other VST options out there, without affecting customers who won’t use it.
