“SoundID Reference is simple to set up and incredibly powerful. Precise and surgical when I need drastic room correction, or I can dial the mix knob back for a more broad, subtle approach. Plus, I can take my software and measurement mic with me anywhere in the world and be up and running in no time.For many years I just carved it out through trial and error, then I got the [Sonarworks] software and measured the room many times and you can see it clear as day—what I’ve always heard by ear. So it’s been really great not having to mix around the problem.”

“Sonarworks software provided the missing puzzle piece I was searching for: How to rein in my entire ATMOS speaker set and make them sound cohesive and uniform. The combination of measurements and target curves provided focus and clarity and really tied the room together. Translation is excellent. Bravo.”

Customer Reviews

This has been a difficult year with Sonarworks. Not their fault, really. Having been an early adopter of Mac's M1 chip, software running in emulation has not been smooth sailing. However, with OS13 Ventura, Rosetta has mostly disappeared from the scene and most software has become super-responsive. Wonderful. So much so, I'm upgrading Sonarworks Sound ID Reference to include the calibrated Microphone and then will be able to take full advantage of the software package.

Advantages: The steps are clear and easy to use. Disadvantages: the widest distance is less than 6 meters. It is expected to be solved in the future

I use this software a lot - even just listening to music outside the DAW :) It was easy for me to find, download, install, and start using. The staff was so helpful in answering my questions about their products - including the individual calibrated headphones they offer. I am happy to say that I now own my first pair of open back studio headphones thanks to Sonarworks :D and paired with my purchase of the Sound Id software, it can't get any better!

I’d recommend this kit, it has highlighted the acoustic issues in my room. Which means I can make adjustments, but until then I can enable the software to produce a flat response.

Created with SoundID Reference

As we were all working from home, Sonarworks SoundID Reference was a key helper for me to trust what I was listening to. I was pleasantly surprised how well what I heard and reviewed at home translated in the studio.
