Hi!

You can find the latest build by following this link:

This is Martins, a QA from Sonarworks Reference team, by the way. :)

Let me know how it goes!

So, if I buy the headphone plugin, I will be able to use it with native Linux (the beta ones offered now and the eventual release one)? I was very tempted to buy it on sale too, but I was not sure how it would work, especially after (or if) an official version is released. (Would one have to buy a new license or upgrade fee?)

This gives me "HTTP Error 404", the reason I asked :)

Same here. But it worked in a terminal with :

Code: Select all

Ah indeed, strange don't think I've ever seen that before. Good to keep in mind for the future.

Thanks!

Installed and works all great under linux mint.

one question aside: how would i / could i run sonarworks "globally" in Cadence? is that possible? as I route all my audio anyways through cadence into jack? I never tried it as i never needed it till now.. thanks

It's possible using a vst host like Carla Rack and Jack connections.

thanks juki,

yes that works, but does it work "globally" somehow? I mean: I can connect the alsa- and the pulseaudio - bridge to the plugin permanently, but jack connections (i.e. vlc player , moc, etc) they appear and disappear on program starts and so does the connection. but maybe there is a trick i am not aware of?

I didn't investigate that far yet. Till now i start Qjackctl, then start Carla, Catia, VLC and Audacious via Non-session-manager, but i have to reconnect at each start the connections in Catia. That's ok for me till now as i usually use the plugin inside Ardour and rarely to listen to music or watch videos.
VLC and Audacious are set to use Pulseaudio, and then i just have to connect the Pulseaudio-Jack-sink to Carla and Carla to the sound card.

Currently the problem i have with the plugin is that i can't update the headphones list. My connexion is not great but well, it just take hours and seem to be stuck at 8 on 227 or something.

Am i the only one to have this problem ? Is there another way to update the list ?

Hopefully i can use my Beyer DT880, but when i want to use the KRK 8400 it just tells me "invalid file"...

Edit : Well, i there is this in the Ardour log window :

HTTP request failed: (28) Operation timed out after 60000 milliseconds with 0 bytes received

I tried and tried, disabling the firewall and so on... Well, obviously it will never update.

So if someone can send me a PM with a link to download somewhere the file /home/USER/.sonarworks/Reference 4/Sonarworks Projects/KRK KNS 8400 Average.swhp

I'll be very grateful as i have to start a recording session in a few days and i'd like to use it. Thanks a lot !

Sorry juki,

I was burried with other stuff and did not have time to read the forum. It is really weird, that you are constantly unable to download the profiles, but you can try to use the offline activation (https://www.sonarworks.com/reference/offline-activation) - just generate the offline request file from the plugin, upload it to the form in the link and you will receive a license file with all the profiles inside. Hope this helps:)
