All I needed to know, and finally found, was this:

Operating system:

Microsoft XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8(32 & 64 – bit) win
Mac OSX 10.5, 10.6, 10.7, 10.8 (32 & 64 – bit) mac

Sound Hardware: Audio Hardware with OS compatible drivers.

AU, AAX Native, RTAS or VST standard plug-in compatible playback software

The supported plug-ins types being the most important part ...

Anyone running this on the current (10.11) build of OS X?


I'm on OS X 10.11.1 running on a MBP Retina laptop.  I have the trial version of the software.  Once you install the plugins  -- I'm using Audio Units -- then you access it in your music software.  When you  click on "Configure" for the first time, you'll enter the validation code they send you in the email to activate it -- and then you can configure for your headphones and explore various parametric alterations to the correction curve.

 

I'm not sure why, but I was unable to perform the validation step with Audirvana Plus.  Had some back forth with the support team, checked my firewall, and etc.  In my case, I have a number of music players, so I tried Fidelia -- and was able to activate it instantly.  Once validated, the AU was functional across all my music players including Audirvana.  Not sure if that was something about my configuration or not.

Lovely, thanks!

 

I'd be using Audio Units myself for pure-listening duties.

 

With Logic and ProTools I'd use the other plug-in types of course, but my first interest is just for audio-replay as I have other options in the DAW space for DSP and EQ (I don't want to think about the stack of guitar effects plug-ins ... gives me shivers every time I upgrade anything).

 

Guess I'll give it a try then.

I'd like to make the pre-meet, assuming the battery ups will keep the Yggy toasty while I'm there.

Ah, I see now.

Then perhaps my long winded description will be helpful for others with less experience…

ps I'm running OSX 10.9 and it works just fine
I wouldn't touch 10.10 (nicknamed el Crapitan) yet, WAY to many problems so far.

We can bring some of our gear. I'm hoping we will be able to bring a few new items that may or may not arrive by the time of this event. Centrance Hifi Skyn (not likely) (Vero dongles, bass and full range XLR balanced - not likely),

These Vero dongles are very interesting, the patent is from a long while back so you can see the designs.

 

Not sure if you remember JJ but this is what I was telling you about 2 mini-meets ago.

:)

 

I'm on 10.11 and the only issues I've seen so far have been with SIP squashing "questionable" files/file-system access.  It's primarily been an issue for older software, though things like "libdvdcss" have gotten "quarantined" as well.

 

Among other things, I do software engineering work (for most platforms, but including both OS X and iOS) so I tend to have to have at least one machine on the bleeding-edge.  That machine tends to be where I am doing most of my "current" work and as a result is also, by default, my primary source when listening to headphones.

 

Thanks again for the info though! :)

Glenn you will have time after the pre-meet to go home and get your gear. We kinda planned it this way to make it easier for you and Bob.

We kinda know the next 3-4 meets, Some have dates. We have done so many meets up here....... And have the flexibility to adjust for this or that. We did take that liberty this meet. Anderson School, The location of the Yggi's, Request's for a Sunday meet. And all the new gear coming...... The noob's will be in heaven, the vets are getting their rig's updated and dialed in. I have finally gone digital.....

Anyone acquire a Mr Speakers Ether or Ether C? I've heard great things of the former and I'd expect the closed back to be close.

There will be a ton of new gear and tweaks. Either way should be fun.
