SONARWORKS 12-41449 overview

  • 1Description

SONARWORKS Reference 4 Studio Edition combines a speaker and headphone calibration plug-in, a room measurement software, and the Systemwide app to assist audio engineers in mixing and mastering with consistent results. Whether in the comfort of your studio or on the road, this system allows you to take your monitoring reference with you and trust the mixes you create on your favorite speakers and headphones, with greater confidence.

Reference 4 Studio Edition uses proprietary Automatic Microphone Positioning System (AMPS), Perceived Acoustic Power Frequency Response (PAPFR), and Headphone Acoustic Power (HAP) measurement technology to measure and adjust the frequency response of your speakers/headphones and precisely match flat- and neutral-sounding studio monitors in a well-treated studio. Requiring a measurement microphone (available separately), the Room Measurement software automatically locates the microphone position using acoustic trilateration, making the optimal placement of your mic effortless.

The interface's Calibration section gives you a choice of Flat, Custom, and Predefined target correction curves. The Simulate section transforms your headphones/speakers into any supported model set, with predefined simulations of popular headphones and speakers for quick and easy referencing on the fly. With zero-latency monitoring, the software can be used live when tracking vocals and instruments.

The included Systemwide app brings the convenience of system-wide speaker/headphone calibration. It lets you retain a neutral sound, no matter which app you are playing music through, whether it is iTunes, SoundCloud, Spotify, or other sources.

Note: This upgrade is available to owners of Reference 4 Headphone Edition. A flat frequency response measurement microphone (available separately) is required to use the room measurement software.
