“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.”

Brilliant product, and the virtual monitoring adds a new way to critically listen to your work in different environments. I was completely fooled when I switched to the smartphone simulation. It sounded as though the sound was literaly coming out of my phone sitting on the desk in front of me. Having said that, I held off frm upgrading for a few months due to a region related bug which caused the computer to freeze when running Sound ID. I pulled the trigger when the support desk announced that the issue has been fixed. While my computer no longer freezes, the plugin still does not work natively. Further digging revealed that Mac OS 10.15 Catalina is no longer supported, so I suspect this will not be an issue if you are running on a newer OS. For now, I am resorting to running Sound ID as a plugin, not ideal but I can live with that. Shopping experience was smooth and good, support centre was responsive and helpful.

The purchasing experience was practical and smooth, the service was high quality and the installation was efficient and fast.The information is very easy to find since through platforms like YouTube there are very clear points of explanation about the installation and how each of your products work, so that topic is completely well covered for my personal experience.and my experience with the support centre was very satisfactory and pleasant, they are very attentive and do not leave any detail unattended. I recommend that you guys continue like this, revolutionizing the way in which we musicians and music producers work with this new and fascinating technology and making us partners with this new technology and not enemies, and making it a mutual benefit, thanks to you guys from Sonarworks who are making efforts and achieving results to make this possible!!

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.

I like to work in-the-box on my laptop and this tool gives me more confidence and accuracy.
