Dirac live processor issues

Hi,

I use Audirvanva in my office for music, amp/speaker instead of headphones.
Because of the limited options for placing the speakers I opted for the DiracLiveProcessor.
All in all quite happy.

In real time mode Audirvana is snappy, without that it can take up to seconds to change tracks.
When I enable the EXPERIMENTAL Audio Units MacOs hosting api the snappiness returns but sounds very bass heavy.

A known issue or related to my setup?

Thanks in advance,
Bob

The experimental mode for Audio Unit is only when you have issue with a plugin. We do not recommend using it if you do not have an issue with your plugin.

Ok, Thanks @Antoine.

That means the Dirac live plugin is only usable for me in real-time mode.
No big deal, just wanted to make sure.
