Sonarworks has announced its partnership with Merging Technologies, one of the world’s foremost manufacturers of high-resolution digital audio recording systems.

Sonarworks’ popular calibration software released earlier this year SoundID Reference (previously Reference 4 software), will now be included in Merging Technologies’ interface and system controller – MERGING+ANUBIS, marking the first hardware to enable SoundID Reference correction outside of a computer.

This partnership will provide a seamless workflow for music creators and engineers to experience accurate sound correction at the lowest possible latency on multiple outputs simultaneously.

Anubis is an audio interface presenting mastering grade speaker and headphone outputs, Merging’s acclaimed Mic Pres and Line outs, as well as a complete monitoring engine. Everything is controlled from the built-in touchscreen and/or from any tablet or computer.

Now with SoundID Reference enabled, it’s the first time Sonarworks’ calibration software can be used solely through a piece of hardware without being tethered to a computer. Music creators can now mix with confidence regardless of the source they are listening to, whether that be a computer, DAW, live mic, etc., by producing a flat, consistent sound wherever they work from. The calibration software operates in the background to remove unwanted coloration, delivering accurate studio reference sound at the lowest possible latency.

“We’re excited to take this step forward with Merging Technologies to deliver the first-ever SoundID Reference enabled hardware that doesn’t require music creators to use a computer to leverage our calibration software”, said Martins Popelis, Co-Founder of Sonarworks. “Together, we’re improving the production process with accurate, high-quality sound that creators can trust.”

“It was always our dream to add productivity and utility features to Anubis and this partnership with SoundID Reference exactly fulfills that”, commented Claude Cellier, Merging’s Founder and President. “So many of our customers will welcome the ability to easily calibrate their listening environment where Anubis is already their critical monitoring unit.”

SoundID Reference runs on both the Anubis Monitoring Mission and the Music Mission with a simple firmware update.
