Sonarworks releases Reference 4.3 - Adds New Features
Old 8th August 2019

Here for the gear
 

I am a user that has the crackling problems on windows 10. I tried a couple of updates with no improvement. Then I started reading on forums about problems worse than the crackling problems. I stopped using sonarworks correction and held up on updating because I have very low confidence until I here more positive comments. I really can't afford to screw up a computer that currently is working well. I'll keep reading the forums waiting for positive feedback.

There's a validation error in Logic with the latest release (AU plugin 4.3.4 build 2). It's minor since its just complaining about the Res version (0x40303) vs the Comp version (0x40304). I can just tick use in the plugin manager and its available, but it then lists under incompatible in the AU list instead of under Sonarworks as expected.

O/S 10.13.6, Logic 10.4.6

I’ve never installed system wide, instead I bought a focusrite sapphire usb 3 interface for £70 and use that for system audio (YouTube, mp3 playback etc) and feed the main outputs from it into a spare stereo input on my main ASIO audio card.

I just have Cubase on in the background running the standard Sonarworks so all pc system audio is processed without the need for system wide. You can do the same with your onboard audio but the quality is always a bit off on motherboard audio.

Harvey,
Very interesting set up. I assume you have Cubase autolaunch when you power on your computer?

For those running Mojave, is Systemwide working correctly? No bugs? I'm about to upgrade to an iMac soon and thought I'd check before I do. My current Mac Pro is so old I can't run anything higher than High Sierra.

I’m on Mojave without any issues, but I’m still using 4.2.2 of Sonarworks Systemwide.

Please bring back the averaged speakers feature. @ Hrodulf that was very useful. For version 5, add an averaged consumer and averaged professional headphones references as well.

Removing features is NEVER a good thing. The Mixed filter type was a welcome re-addition, for sure.

We recently came out with a build that should address audio engine failure on Windows. On top of that it also adds Avid HDX support for Measure. Check the full release notes here.

Has the HD Reference 3/4 software been abandoned at this point?

And this appears to be fixed in 4.3.5. It may also have been an issue on my end initially, since I don't think I restarted the comp after installing 4.3.4.....

This version crashes the latest version of Logic X. When on deleting it from the master chain. Highly annoying...

What kind of crackling are we talking about? On on continuous play or on playback start?

I think it’s horse sh#t as they had solid version before and now it’s really unusable. Does anyone still have the old installer for Mac somewhere?

See comment above. Or just click this: https://sonarworks.com/reference/archive

One thing Sonarworks is good at is having those legacy installers readily available.

I'm on PT 2019.5/Mojave 10.14.5 and have Sonarworks crashing about 98% of the time when I close a session or open a session. It's the only plugin that crashes my system. Anybody experiencing something similar?

Sonarworks...What is going on?

I installed the latest version of Reference Studio 4, and no longer have Systemwide (Win10). Is this another feature that you have removed without notice or yet another buggy release?

I have reinstalled the latest version twice now. Still no Systemwide. On the installer (custom) it is greyed out (but ticked). The installer says that it is being installed, but it is not.

Alright. The offline installer worked fine, but the default online installer is broken and doesn't install what it is saying that it is installing.

I've asked twice and there hasn't been a response.

People have asked even more about having frequency limits or being able to select what frequency range that Sonarworks corrects, but there has been no response to this either. I imagine if that was an option in HD 3/4, that there would be some people interested in it. But I can also imagine, that it's nothing compared to the possible money in having Sonarworks headphone correction on every iPhone and Android phone... so perhaps their resources for studio products is limited these days.

Yes, Reference 3 and Reference HD aren't developed any more. With that said, we will provide technical support to all of our users no matter what version they use.

Reference systemwide 4.3.5 (build 1) on High sierra is giving me tons of glitches and distorted audio. Mainly noticed the problem when (un)plugging headphones to the laptop but it also happens on random when mixing, browsing web etc. Sometimes the systemwide decides to change the sample rate - all settings on Systemwide, projects and OS system preferences are set to 88.2 but then it throws 44.1 at me. I check the settings and nothing has changed, everything is still on 88.2.

From a solid product to a clusterf#ck of a product in a few updates. Well done Sonarworks! And it seems they hardly care.

I've uninstalled it from my music PC for now due to the glitches. Also for some reason it favoured my Rode USB microphone as an output, even though the windows default was set to my audio interface out.

At least they have a publicly available offline installer archive at https://www.sonarworks.com/reference/archive . That's better than a lot of companies do.

My issue with the offline installer is you don't get to pick which plugins to install. I don't want 32-bit VSTs or AAX installed. But I am forced to like that Waves Central dumpster fire.

I’ve actually downgraded to a previous version but after that it’s not even solid anymore. I think some of the files don’t completely overwrite. It’s a shame though...

Sonarworks 4.3.5.1 is the most stable update I have received to date.

In previous versions, I use to get a random SWOD when trying to close a Pro Tools session with the Sonarworks plugin inserted on the Master Fader. With the latest update, I haven't received a single SWOD when trying to close a PT session.
