Sonarworks Reference 4 distills their product line into two versions. The Headphone Edition and the Studio Edition. The Studio Edition gives users a separate application to calibrate the room space from your own listening position. Taking that calibration into the plug-in is possible and adjustable using a DRY/WET dial to adjust how much is used. Other additions include a bass boost, EQ tilt, output ducking, and a mono mode. Users of V3 may not want to upgrade but it is now easier than ever to tune your ears to your own setup.
- Reference 4 reduces the product line to two versions; a Headphone Edition with the plugin and app, and the Studio Edition that comes with additional room measurement software
- With the Studio Edition, you only need an omnidirectional condenser mic to calibrate your room, or you can add a mic to your purchase for €50
- After using the package for an extended period of time, it has proven a great way to improve the sound of your room and as a result, your mixes
“Ultimately, with both the plug-in version and Systemwide app, it’s now easier than ever to start tuning your ears to your setup, whether writing, recording or listening to your favourite tracks.”
