Hi, I'm new here, would love to try out the demo and buy the Linux vst when it's available.
Just built a new studio so this will come in very handy :)

Do you have a link to the demo version still? I tried the one from the old thread but it was no longer working.

Is there any chance that we get Sonarworks (speaker calibration) ported to Linux in the near future (~1-2 years)? I would instantly buy it! :D

You may check various versions of the Linux portage there:
https://sonarworks.com/reference/archive

(note that, at least in my case, using 'wget' as the DL tool instead of any of my browsers was the way to go, YMMV,
and at least for my actual testing plate (Manjaro Arch 4.18 RT + pro-audio) the version 4.4 works nicely.

Wow thanks. Seems that it is work in progress. Is this also for speaker calibration?

Is there any progress? I didn't follow this software for a while, given I lost any connections with Rudolfs, one of the developers. I still have an intention to buy it, Reference could have saved my ass better than my skills when I was finishing my band's last album. Mastering on headphones without correction profiles is doable, as well as getting used to their particular low end freq response, but it's a pain in the ass compared to doing all this stuff with a proper correction profile loaded. Speaker/room measurement is another beast which I'd like to get along with, but seems it's not on the list of upcoming Linux version features.

You still can use REW and load the filter settings into the LSP EQ.
