Reference Studio - linear sound on your speakers & headphones

Finally you can mix with confidence on your current setup. Sonarworks Reference 4 removes unwanted coloration from your speakers and headphones. With Sonarworks' Studio Reference, you can focus on music instead of worrying about the sound.

Reference 4 Studio Edition offers the full package of highly powerful software, providing consistent reference sound both in the studio and on the go. Measure your studio with a measurement mic. Reference 4 then creates a calibration profile. For headphones select a pre-made profile, and you're ready to go. Calibration can be run in DAW via a plugin for lowest latency or via Systemwide for maximum versatility.
