Sonarworks has introduced Reference 3 Systemwide, a utility that allows track referencing and double-checking without the tonal coloration caused by headphones or speakers getting in the way. Now as a standalone product, Reference 3 Systemwide is viable for users with no plug-in capable software.
After setup, Systemwide sits between OS audio and the selected audio device, built-in or otherwise. By employing a patent-pending measurement method, Sonarworks identifies flaws in headphones and speakers, then creates a special calibration profile. These profiles can be used in Systemwide to remove the devices’ tonal coloration. Sonarworks explains, better monitoring allows applying one’s producing or mixing talent “with surgical precision.” The result is music that works on any playback system and can be revealed to listeners faster.
Pricing and Availability. Sonarworks’ Systemwide app is available now for 99€/$99 or for 49€/$49 when purchased with other Sonarworks software. More information is available on Sonarworks’ website.
