    UAD/Apollo Sonarworks Plugin

    ATTN: Universal Audio and Sonarworks
    TO: Whom it may concern

    Dear Sirs,

    The Universal Audio users community being vast since the introduction of the UAD DSP cards, become even bigger after the launch of the Apollo line of interfaces. Nowadays there are thousands of different caliber studios based on Apollo. Probably a considerable amount of them share common flow: not a (entirely) perfect monitoring environment. In this regard a monitoring correction concept such as the one by Sonarworks could bring to those users experiencing difficulties correcting their studio environment by classical methods, an efficient solution for their monitoring problems. For what many others and I discovered in the audio forums - a serious group of people consider using a speaker and room calibration software along with their UA interface. The only problem is that the Sonarworks or similar plugins have to be used in their DAWs, which though helping a lot is not the perfect method as of engineering point of view. The best point of applying the correction is just before the DA (I wouldn’t like to insult anyone with the obvious details why). Additionally: the theoretical possibility to use a DSP in the Apollo Mixer’s Master section could lead to lower latency using the Sonarworks Refference 3 (or HD) and use the correction during playing thought the Apollo’s mixer from sources unable to use native plugins such the iTunes, plugged in instruments and microphones, and reference audio disks and files, to name a few.

    In regards of the previous and in the context of the fact that many people for what I discovered share the same opinion and wishes, I do plead that: Sonarworks and Universal Audio to consider making an UAD/Apollo DSP driven Refference 3 like plugin.

    Such venture will not only make hundreds of existing users happy but would lead that the Apollo/Sonarworks concept to become the obvious future choice for equipping and reequipping studios.

    Thank you for your time.

    Best regards from all of us!

    Alex

    +1 ! Would love to here the view of UA on this idea or the possibility of a co-operation with Sonarworks.

    If UA gives you a response I'll eat my hat.



    ...of course I'll be wearing a large pepperoni pizza on my head

    I will jump in as well...I have both the headphone plug-in (for my Sennheiser HD 600's) as well as the room correction plug-in. Phenomenal!!! I can't believe how much it's cleared up so many of my mixing decisions. Had to do some re-routing to get them to live permanently yet invisible within my DAW and not be on my master buss...but all is good now. Having them on a sub OS level would have made this so much easier I'd imagine as all system audio would pass through if set up correctly. For perspective...I had IK's ARC and that doesn't hold a candle to Sonarworks. Amazing!!!

    Well written. This would be fantastic! I use both Sonarworks plugins as well, but only at the mixing stage due to latency issues.

    Hey guys !
    I'm actually running Sonarworks through Audio HiJack Pro
    Did you noticed that Audio HiJack Pro is sucking 15 % of 1 UAD DSP ?
    UAD Control panel is even showing a 1088 samples of plug in latency
    Somebody is able to explain this ?
    Thanks mate
