Students in our program love using Sonarworks because it improves the performance of their speakers and headphones in the classroom and in their untreated dorm rooms.

Assistant Professor of Music Industry at University of Hartford

Sonarworks provides consistency between various playback situations. This is especially important at the early stages of an audio engineer’s career.

Once you start mixing with Sonarworks, you don’t want to mix without it.

Sonarworks is a simple to use and affordable tool for students who are mixing audio in less than ideal monitoring environments.

Sonarworks is invaluable to students

SoundID Reference ensures that whatever environment students are mixing in, they all use a common flat frequency response.


At Drexel University, we have great studios that I can work in, but each of them is different, and that makes moving projects between them a bit challenging. Also, my headphones are somewhat colored, which makes it harder for me to work from home. Sonarworks makes all of these environments sound the same, and now I can move between locations with ease. I can even mix on the train.

Learning Tool

Sonarworks lets me visualize the frequency response of each room I work in. It really gives me a good feel of how the speaker placement affects my home studio. I’ve got a much better sense of how the room is affecting the timbre of the instruments I am mixing. I love this software.

Improved Mixing Results

When I started working on the Sonarworks monitoring target, it was much easier than I initially thought. The drums, for example, sounded much more spot-on in my latest assignment, which my professor also appreciated and complimented. I’m a lot more confident that my mixes will translate. Very happy.

I like working on music with my talented friend from high school. Even though we are thousands of miles apart, we can still find some consistency in our mixes because we both use the same flat frequency curve. This tool rocks!
