Sonarworks Tips and Tricks: Calibrating Speakers for Volume

Calibrating Speakers for Volume may not be the sexiest part of recording but it is something you'll need to get right, so watch, listen and learn....! Working at the appropriate volume allows you to make decisions you can trust and ones that will translate to the outside world. Beyond a calibrated monitoring setup, you must also level-match your mix or master with any reference for a true comparison. Level matching helps you to make sure you’re making things sound better, not just louder. In this episode Adam Kagan shows you how to calibrate your studio monitors for a constant volume level.
