Speaker Calibration for Accurate Monitoring

  • Mix With Confidence. Stop second-guessing yourself and trust every decision.

  • Finish Tracks Faster: Make better decisions and spend less time fixing mistakes.

  • Perfect Translation: Make music that sounds great on phones, laptops, earbuds, or wherever else.

  • Improved Collaboration: Get only relevant feedback by working on the same reference sound no matter the distance or gear you have.

SoundID Reference is a calibration software delivering consistently accurate studio reference sound. 
In less than 20 minutes you can calibrate your existing studio speakers with a measurement microphone and calibrate your existing headphones with more than 280 headphone calibration profiles already included in the software as ready-to-use presets.

With an applied calibration profile the software sets the frequency response target to be completely flat across all audible frequencies so you can trust that every mix will translate. You can also now make custom adjustments to the target curve in real-time with the new custom target feature.

With accurate studio reference sound, you can seamlessly switch between speakers, headphones, and rooms. Finally, mix with confidence and make music that sounds great everywhere.
