The most accurate speaker and room calibration software

Most speakers do a decent job in a lab, but once you bring them into your room, things change. The sound you hear degrades due to room acoustics. Thus you miss critical details, and lose the ability to put your skills to their best use.

Sonarworks Reference 3 solves this problem of lost accuracy and makes translation to other systems much better. It is a software tool that combines a measurement software with calibration DAW plug-in. The plug-in serves as an advanced DSP for your monitors that neutralizes room influence.

Reference 3 is packed with unique and patent-pending technologies as well as automation that enables anyone to do the complete studio calibration process with a visual step-by-step workflow in less than 15 minutes. Reference 3 utilizes a proprietary Perceived Acoustic Power Frequency Response (PAPFR) technology that measures and analyzes sound the way humans actually hear it. During the measurement process, the software automatically detects the microphone position in the room, making the process much easier and the results more consistent. The processing plugin has a filter engine that is specifically designed for audio calibration in a studio setting with a choice of linear, mixed, and minimum phase filters to suit the task at hand.

Mixes that sound better and deliver more impact

Accurate sound from your studio monitors is of utmost importance for making the right mixing decisions. Reference 3 speaker calibration allows you to hear even the smallest detail with ear-opening accuracy. Eliminate the guesswork.

Have full confidence in your results!

Stop questioning yourself and what you hear. The right EQs, the right compressor. Know that you have made the right decisions. You are in control.

Deliver amazing sounding mixes faster

If you can’t fully trust your studio sound,you have to rely on making many rounds to your car or your home hi-fi to triangulate your sound problem. Save time (and your face) solving this problem before you send your mixes to your client or supervisor. No more endless e-mails from band members with “voluntary-compulsory” suggestions.

Reference sound everywhere

Included with the room calibration kit is Sonarworks Reference 3 Systemwide, allowing you to use calibrated sound for critical listening from any playback source. No more dragging files into your DAW project just to have a listen or figuring out how to check if your kick blasts as hard as the best of them on Soundcloud.
