Sonarworks has released it’s fourth generation acoustic calibration software Reference 4, which delivers reliable monitoring to even more sound engineers, producers and musicians.

What’s new?

Reference 4 introduces zero latency to the already impressive feature list Sonarworks users have grown to love and rely on. No extra latency means that Reference 4 plug-in can be used for vocal and instrument tracking. Finally musicians who demand instant response on their input will be able to fully rely on their monitoring.

Zero latency allows Reference 4 to be used when live tracking and playing software instruments.

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. Learn more  HERE!


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. See the future roadmap  HERE!
