Reference 4 Studio Edition


Full confidence in sound on your current speakers and headphones

Finally, you can work with confidence on the setup you have. Sonarworks' Reference 4 removes unwanted coloration from your studio speakers and headphones, so you can trust that you hear your mix accurately. Reference 4 Studio Edition offers the full package of highly powerful software, providing consistent reference sound both in the studio and on the go. Simply measure your studio with a measurement mic and Reference 4 then creates a calibration profile. For headphones, select a pre-made profile, and you're ready to go. Calibration can be run in DAW via plugin for lowest latency or via Systemwide for maximum versatility.
