SAN FRANCISCO –  October 12, 2021 – We have recently released SoundID Reference (the next-generation version of Reference 4) version 5.1.0. Full release notes are available here.

The latest update enables users of SoundID Reference to export presets to MERGING+ANUBIS as part of the newly announced Sonarworks partnership with Merging Technologies.
