Desktop Audio for Professionals
The power of Dirac Live — running on your desktop. Whether you’re a studio whiz or a desktop-first audiophile, Dirac Live Room Correction Suite gives you unprecedented precision and accuracy for mixing and listening. Room Correction Suite can correct all system audio, including from music apps and web browsers, or you can load it into your professional DAW as an AU, AAX, or VST plugin.
Room acoustics affect your sound
Your mix is finally ready for the world to hear. You’ve spent hours, days, maybe even weeks in your studio making sure your work stands up to the classics. But when you play your music on another system, it falls apart. The bass is uneven – sometimes barely audible, and sometimes overpowering. Reverb is too loud, vocals are buried. Snare, hi-hat, and handclaps sound like they were recorded on a different planet.
Your ability to create a mix that translates to other sound systems depends on more than the tools and equipment you use. The structure of your studio, where you place your speakers, and even where you sit, affect what you hear. Changing the construction of your room is not possible, and even expensive acoustic paneling and treatment may not address every issue.
How does Dirac Live Room Correction Suite (RCS) work?
Dirac Live Room Correction Suite is offered in two formats, both of which are included with a license. The Systemwide component is its own app, applying the Dirac Live calibration to your entire computer while it is activated. The Room Correction Suite plugins, also included, are offered in AU, AAX, and VST formats and can be easily loaded into your favorite DAW for objective mastering and mixing. In the Room Correction Suite, you can download and install Dirac Live, which will walk you through the calibration process with step-by-step instructions..

Meet Dom Brown, lead guitarist for Duran Duran
Meet Dom Brown, frequent user of Dirac
Dom Brown, lead guitarist for Duran Duran, has performed live or in-studio with artists and producers from Duran Duran to Mark Ronson, and Justin Timberlake to Liam Gallagher of the rock band Oasis.
“Whenever my studio is running, Dirac Live room correction is running. It has really helped me in my mix process because I can hear things more clearly. I’m not getting any coloration from the room and I can get a truer representation of what’s going down. It’s massively helpful.” – Dom Brown.
Tailored to the pro audio market
Trusted for over 20 years by home theater and luxury automotive partners, Dirac Live Room Correction transforms the listening experience of any space. Our patented algorithm corrects modes, resonances, and roll-offs to remove the coloration imparted by poor room acoustics. Far from being a one-size-fits-all solution, our room correction process always begins with detailed measurements of your studio to tailor the processing precisely to your needs. Dirac Live is also the only commercially available technology to address your room’s frequency and phase response. In addition to enabling even more effective frequency response correction, phase response optimization tightens transients, focuses stereo imaging, and facilitates sound source localization.

“Whenever my studio is running, Dirac Live room correction is running. It has really helped me in my mix process because I can hear things more clearly. I’m not getting any colorization from the room and I can get a truer representation of what’s going down. It’s massively helpful.”
I was completely amazed by the difference that Dirac made to my new studio. My speakers are great but have several acoustic issues in my new studio resulting in the mixes not translating as expected, it was a friend who recommended I try Dirac. Now everything sounds just right!… significantly more accurate across the whole frequency range plus the imaging is incredible
I would love to see Dirac as the default in all sound interfaces. Their technology would be a game changer for the industry.
