Once you start mixing with Sonarworks, you don’t want to mix without it.

Sonarworks provides consistency between various playback situations. This is especially important at the early stages of an audio engineer’s career. It is also a great educational tool for demonstrating the importance of monitoring systems and calibration.

We can now focus much more on the music and aesthetics while teaching music mixing instead of discussing why are we listening to "this or that," guessing "what might have been the reason for such frequency unbalances."

I can say without hesitation that this is a product worth checking out and I can not wait until I get my students up and running with it.  With Sonarworks, I believe that we may finally have a solution to get consistently even results across the spectrum of gear, from our multi-million dollar studios to the student’s dorm room setups and everything between. What a fantastic pairing of education and technology this makes!

When I started using Sonarworks I noticed the difference in my headphones, the before and after is amazing!

Instructor and Mentor at Memphis Music Initiative

My high school age students perform most of their mixing work from home on inexpensive headphones. Sonarworks has given them a fighting chance to make mixes that translate. They love it and it’s almost like hearing for the first time when you compare the before and after.

Ableton Certification Program

Sonarworks is invaluable to students

Sonarworks Reference 4 ensures that whatever environment students are mixing in, they all use a common flat frequency response.


by Craig Van ReMoortel, Drexel University

At Drexel University, we have great studios that I can work in, but each of them is different, and that makes moving projects between them a bit challenging. Also, my headphones are somewhat colored, which makes it harder for me to work from home. Sonarworks makes all of these environments sound the same, and now I can move between locations with ease. I can even mix on the train.

Learning Tool

by Fernanda Herrara Lendechy, SAE Mexico City

Sonarworks lets me visualize the frequency response of each room I work in. It really gives me a good feel of how the speaker placement affects my home studio. I’ve got a much better sense of how the room is affecting the timbre of the instruments I am mixing. I love this software.

Improved Mixing Results

by Kaela Dunlap, Shenandoah Conservatory

When I started working on the Sonarworks monitoring target, it was much easier than I initially thought. The drums, for example, sounded much more spot-on in my latest assignment, which my professor also appreciated and complimented. I’m a lot more confident that my mixes will translate. Very happy.


by Chris Mallamaci, Emerson College

I like working on music with my talented friend from high school. Even though we are thousands of miles apart, we can still find some consistency in our mixes because we both use the same flat frequency curve. This tool rocks!

Do It All on a Student Budget

by Rory Higginson, Northeastern University

I'm still working on the same monitors I’ve had since high school. I'm used to them and I don’t really want to buy expensive monitors until I can afford something great. With Reference 4, I can get great results without trying to spend money that I don’t have.
