Installing Dirac


Processor Plugin

  • Download Dirac Live Processor Plugin at Choose the same processor type (32/64 bit) as the Jriver installer. (Generally 64 bit is recommended, but if you want to experiment with other VST hosts than the Jriver 64 bit, you might need the 32 bit version).
  • Double click the setup file to start installation. During install, you can select you own preferred install path. The default location for VST files will be the following:
    • For 32-bit version: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files
    • For 64-bit version: C:\Program Files\Common Files  

This location is where the VST binaries are stored and you will need to point them out later on in Jriver.

Setup Jriver

  • Start Jriver and add music to the library. This can be done via Tools>Import or by dragging audio into Jriver.
  • Go to Options >Audio in Jriver and choose the preferred output device. WASAPI Audio Interface is recommended.
  • In Jriver options>General>Features, activate “WDM driver”
  • Goto DSP menu in Jriver and select desired output format:
  • Click “manage plugins” and select “add Jriver, VST or Winamp plugin”

Now browse to the installation path where you put the VST files during Live processor Processor Plugin installation and point to the file DiracLiveProcessor. The Live processor Processor Plugin should now be added the DSP menu in Jriver.


If you want the processor to be active each time you start your computer, this can be set under Jriver options>startup


  • In Windows, make sure your sound output is Jriver Media Center. This can be done by clicking the speaker in the lower right corner in Windows.
  • Now play a music track in Jriver. Check the volume. You should have sound coming from your speakers.


  • Now open the DSP options window in Jriver. Select the Dirac Live Processor Plugin and you should see that the level meters on the right-hand side are responding to the music. This means that the audio is being processed though the Dirac Live Processor Plugin. At this moment you do not have any filters that correct your room though, so it's now time to do a measurement and create a filter.
