For the Focusrite users out there, this months freeby offering in their Plug-in Collective is a seven-month license to Sonarworks Reference 4 Headphone Edition. I guess it’s about recalibrating your cans to remove unwanted coloration to get a flatter, more accurate, generalizable mix when mixing thru headphones. From their description:
" Sonarworks’ Reference 4 Headphone Edition is simple but impactful, aiming to flatten the response of your headphones. Why is that important? Most headphones “colour” the sound you hear, which means they can mask or exaggerate certain frequencies which could negatively impact how you decide to mix your track. Reference 4 HE removes unwanted colouration meaning you can focus on your music instead of worrying about your set-up, and work on the go with your laptop, confident in the accuracy of your mix."
I would love to know if anyone has used this or recommends it? Cristina, I know you mix thru your headphones: Have you used anything like this? It “seems” like it would make sense. I read rave reviews but don’t trust the hype. I trust you guys and would love to know what you think.
It’s free. I’m gonna download and try. Will also post my impressions.
