Top time-saving and educational tool

I own Reference, Mixroom, Bassroom, Levels and Fuser (recent purchase). I can get my mixes much closer to the ball park I want them in much faster. I have decent headphones and monitors but my room isn’t going to be having acoustic treatment anytime soon. My mixes translate pretty well across different systems. I’m not a pro mix engineer but with these tools I can get them sounding more than presentable on small speakers etc. I have to add as well that Tom / his team have been consistently excellent with customer support over the years.

Instant favourite for comparisons

Beats out other A/B plugins by a mile. Love that it takes the concept further too. So stoked with Reference!

Invaluable

Reference is a straight to the point, genius plugin for getting a sense of how working mixes match up to proven pieces of music. Love how dynamic the looping feature is and being able to save loop points in a preset and switch between references with instant sonic [and visual] feedback is something I wish I had when I started making music. An A+, well though out resource that can be used during the mix or master.

REFERENCE | Mixing and mastering utility plugin

Create Loops

Compare your mix or master to up to 12 reference tracks and create multiple loops so you can quickly compare various sections of your track to your reference.

Level Match

Instantly and accurately match the loudness of your track and your references. This is crucial for a fair comparison and for making informed decisions on how to shape your sound.

A/B Comparison

Jump seamlessly back and forth between your original audio and your reference tracks. Intuitive true peak and loudness metering makes it easy to match the sonic qualities.

Level Line

Shows you the exact EQ curve you need to apply to your music to sound like the selected reference track.
