Sonarworks has announced a significant update to its best-in-class Reference 4 software.
Key updates in in the 4.1.6 version include a 32-bit plugin in addition to the existing 64-bit one, enabling users with older DAW platforms to take advantage of Reference’s robust measurement and calibration capabilities.
Additionally, users are now able to download the latest headphone profiles directly from the software itself, either through the DAW plug-in or in systemwide mode. Newly supported headphone models include offerings from AKG, Audio Technica, Beats, Behringer, Focal, Fostex, Meze, Pioneer, Sennheiser, and many more.
“We are on a constant mission to refine Reference and make it as easy to use as possible,” said Martins Popelis, Vice President and Co-Founder, Sonarworks. “A big part of this has been cultivating an active relationship with our user base and utilizing their feedback to improve Reference with each update.”
The award-winning Reference software utilizes patented technologies and advanced filtering algorithms to establish a common sonic reference point, enabling engineers, producers and musicians the ability to record, mix and master across multiple monitoring devices and environments.
In addition to standard feature upgrades, version 4.1.6 also fixes routine bugs including systemwide over-power consumption, installer malfunctions and other miscellaneous functionality refinements.
Reference 4 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available starting at 99 EUR.
