I've made a little modification into the script, i had at the top:

Code: [Select]
import AlbumArtDownloader.Scripts

Now the message is:
Code: [Select]

I made a clean uninstall via windows and reinstall the app. No luck. Still have the discogs script into the folder but unable to compile it.
same message.

I've never used the miniDSP but can't you adjust/balance the levels with it???   Volume adjustment is about the "easiest" digital signal processing you can do!

Yes it's possible to adjust digitaly for every output. I'm confused on how digital volume works. I've read that lowering volume would lower the number of bits. Also that there's a possibility to raise SNR.

I hope you're measuring your room?    ….Diagnosis before treatment!     But, you need to measure your room & speakers together so you can't finish the room treatment before the speakers are done.

Yep I bought a umik-1 and did a lot of measurements. I'm still waiting for some comfortboard to arrive.

Horn loaded compression driver : TAD TD-4002, 110db/w
Woofer : TAD TL-1603, 97db/W
I assume you'll be making some measurements (with a horn attached and the woofer in a cabinet)?

I already measured the horn while investigating a ~ 1 khz to 2 khz dip (that the reason I want to test an active setup and to change crossover 800hz to 600hz or 650hz). As well as speakers, mostly in room due to size. It won't be a problem to level match woofer/driver with the DSP as well as Time align them.

The Internet says the compression driver is 16 Ohms,.  If that's true that means half the power compared to 8 Ohms (-3dB).    (With the same amplifier & settings).     Do you have the gain (or sensitivity) specs for both amps?

I have on hand for experimentation a :
Pioneer SA-9900 for woofers
http://audio-database.com/PIONEER-EXCLUSIVE/amp/sa-9900-e.html
Luxman R-114 for drivers
There's not a lot of informations about this one on Internet.

P.S.
If your speakers have an existing passive crossover, maybe you can figure-out the (existing) high-frequency attenuation.   There should be a voltage divider (AKA a "pad"), or a potentiometer or a series resistor.  

If there's a potentiometer it's probably audio-taper (non-liner) and you'd need a multimeter to measure the resistance ratio where you like it.

Crossover is tad TN-4  woofer 36db/oct, Driver 12db/oct. No pot (I had one but I removed it since it is not needed. Parts for the crossover are covered, so I didn't break anything in case I would sell them.

Hmm. That error would seem to suggest that AlbumArtDownloader.Scripts.dll is not present, but that should be in the main program folder, not in the scripts subfolder. At this point, I think your best bet is just to uninstall AAD and install it again.

Pattern: $caps(%album artist% - %artist% - %album%/%tracknumber% %title%)

Expect there is duplication in there.
Yep, well it depends on how you have tagged files. I would suggest removing %artist% from above. Firstly, if %album artist% tag is not present it will search %artist%, and vice-versa. (See Reference).

Secondly, remember you are defining folder structure. Say you have a "Various Artists" album tagged to %album artist%, then each individual %artist% being different would end up creating sepearate folders - one track per folder. Not ideal.
