Add or remove various frequency response curve visualizations to your frequency graph. See your room sound before and after the correction, look at your left and right driver response individually or follow your overall phase alignment while using different filter modes.
Enhance your mixing and listening experience by choosing between our predefined reference curves and speaker simulations. Reference, guide and choose between several popular speaker simulations by tilting, adding or decreasing some bottom end.
Reference 4 Systemwide allows using calibrated sound for critical listening from any playback source. No more dragging files into your DAW project just to have a listen or figuring out how to check if your kick blasts as hard as the best of them on Soundcloud.
Mono never left! There is a handy option to switch your mix to mono, but still maintaining a stereo correction, giving you an easy way to check if your mix will sound good in mono as well.
Our Audio Calibration Engine boosts some frequencies to fill in the frequency response dips, and to make your speakers sound precise. By flipping the “avoid clipping” switch you will ensure that your audio output does not get become distorted when calibrated.
This is not a conventional Dry/Wet knob that is used to mix the effect in parallel! The correction curve is actually being smoothed out when you raise or lower this knob to gradually reduce or increase the effect of a calibration.
When audio is being filtered, be it analog or digital, these filters introduce phase changes to your audio signal. Thus, for ultimate flexibility you can select between different filter processing modes.
More demanding on your computer, but will reduce latency to around 1ms. This mode is great for when you’re tracking new instruments to your audio project and need to concentrate on your performance.
Will not affect the natural phase response, but will introduce some latency. This is best suited for when you’re already at the mixing, mastering and post-production stage.
The “best of both worlds” solution offering good middle-ground between some latency and CPU load while processing.
By default Reference 4 will correct your speakers to flat frequency response, but there are numerous options to simulate other systems as well. This is useful to check how your mixes will sound on other common audio systems.
Sonarworks Reference 4 has been optimized to work as a streamlined step-by-step process, which minimizes human error, therefore giving you better results. Each step has an informative description to help you through.
It's the calibration that separates our mic from the crowd. Every Sonarworks measurement mic has been individually calibrated with an ANSI certified mic. Get your profile from our homepage and open it up before the measurement to ensure utmost precision.
Reference 4 software automatically locates the microphone in your room, and guides you where you should place it. The gives the best possible measurement quality, since the software knows where each measurement was made.
Yes, you can use any omni-directional condenser measurement microphone. For best calibration results, we recommend using an individually calibrated microphone.
