Students often encounter the situation in which a mix produced in their home studio sounds noticeably different when presented in a different playback environment. Sonarworks helps students learn about how their monitor loudspeakers interact with the playback room in ways they might not previously have foreseen, leading to more consistent and predictable results. Reducing presentation variables and related uncertainty is a key part of good engineering, and Sonarworks provides a convenient tool to include in the students’ skill set.
