Sonarworks has released its fourth generation acoustic calibration software, Reference 4 - which they say delivers reliable monitoring to even more sound engineers, producers and musicians.
Sonarworks software removes sound coloration from monitors in purpose built control rooms as well as more down-to-earth locations.
Reference 4 introduces zero latency. No extra latency means that the Reference 4 plug-in can be used for vocal and instrument tracking. Musicians who demand instant response on their input will be able to fully rely on their monitoring.
The supported headphone library has grown to 101 models. Old profiles have been updated for even better accuracy, due to improved measurement technology and vastly larger measured sample sizes. The speaker measurement module has been improved for even better usability, so everyone can reliably measure their setup in less than 10 minutes. By the end of 2017 the speaker measurement module will be updated with an overhauled averaging algorithm to better account for different sweetspot distances from monitors. All Reference 4 users will get this feature for free.
More information and a 21-day full-functionality free trial is available at: www.sonarworks.com/reference
Sonarworks Reference 4 Headphone Edition is available for 99 USD/EUR and the Studio Edition starts at 249 USD/EUR. Both packages now feature Systemwide, making it an even better value. The plug-in for digital audio workstations (DAWs) is offered in AU, AAX Native, RTAS and VST standards and compatible with both macOS and Windows.
