Focusrite Offers Free License For Sonarwork's Reference 4 Headphone Edition

Get a license for Reference 4 Headphone Edition completely free when you register your Focusrite hardware, until October 1st. Here's how it works.  

Focusrite are excited to announce that Sonarworks are offering you a free licence running right through until 1st October for their Reference 4 Headphone Edition, a powerful plug-in which will transform the sound you get through your headphones. Here at Ask.Audio we have covered this clever system before - you can read our tutorial about acoustics and monitor calibration here:

"Sonarworks are a brand which Focusrite has admired for a long time now, as they have incredible algorithms helping musicians achieve their very best results. Their plug-ins are a godsend for those of us that aren’t blessed with acoustically perfect environments and gear worth thousands of pounds, as they really help to level the playing field.

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.

The Headphone Edition operates as a plug-in on your master channel, and as a standalone bit of software. The interface is super clean and easy to use and it comes with hundreds of profiles for headphones so most brands are covered.
As a registered Focusrite hardware customer, you can download your free licence for the Headphone Edition until 2nd May, so head to your Focusrite account as soon as possible. If you haven’t yet registered as one of our customers please go to Focusrite's registration page."

To those of you who have a Focusrite Sound Card, I would highly, did I say HIGHLY? Recommend taking advantage of this offer. I have been a long time owner of this software and have used this in nearly every studio I've worked in and all of my studios I have owned project and professional. Once you hear the difference you will never want to go back to listening to the way you have in the past. Besides, I had to pay full price and did not get a special deal and to be completely honest, I'm more then happy to pay it again if I needed to. It's just that good...
