Students work in all kinds of environments and with all kinds of monitoring equipment. They work with headphones in dorm rooms, with low-quality monitors in acoustically untreated rooms... The list goes on. Then they listen to their projects in the studios that their classes take place and, to their disappointment, everything sounds different! This is where Sonarworks Reference 4 kicks in. It provides a very important thing that the students need: consistency between various playback situations! Considering this, I can confidently say that this affordable and easy-to-use tool is absolutely a game-changer! Furthermore, Reference 4 is also invaluable for education in terms of understanding monitor calibration, and differences and deficiencies of monitoring systems, as well.
