Accurate Reference Sound For Perfect Translation

The main purpose of great sound translation is delivering the artist’s exact intent to the listener. SoundID Reference delivers consistently accurate studio reference sound across all speakers and headphones so you can mix with confidence and make music that sounds great everywhere.

Why is Speaker Calibration Important?

Speaker calibration with SoundID Reference removes unwanted sound colouration and delivers accurate studio reference sound across your speakers and headphones. As a result, you hear every detail across the frequency response spectrum and can trust every mixing decision you make.

Setting up SoundID Reference for Speakers in 3 easy steps

  1. Start With Acoustic Treatment - SoundID Reference is not a substitute for acoustic treatment. We highly recommend treating your room before calibrating your speakers.
  2. Proceed with the Measurement Process - After installing the software you can proceed with your speaker calibration. Speaker calibration requires a measurement microphone — you can buy one from us or use your own. The measurement process takes only 15 minutes.
  3. Finish your Setup - After the measurement is completed, save your speaker profile and apply correction using the plugin in your favourite DAW or use the SoundID Reference app to correct sound from any source on your computer.

Why is Headphone Calibration Important?

SoundID Reference sets the frequency response target to be completely flat across all audible frequencies. The headphone frequency response target is designed to emulate neutral-sounding speakers. With calibrated headphones, you can seamlessly switch between speakers, headphones, projects, and mix with full confidence in sound.

DAW Plugin and Systemwide Calibration
