Crash with UAD devices

There is a known issue with the latest release, version, where the SoundID Reference standalone app crashes once a Universal Audio device is connected. This affects multiple models from UA, including Arrow, Apollo, Solo, etc.). We're investigating this crash and will implement a fix as soon as possible. 





Currently, for those who encounter this issue, it's recommended to revert back to the previous version. In order to do so, follow these steps: 

  1. Uninstall SoundID Reference. How to uninstall SoundID Reference? [MAC]

  3. Click on the dropdown menu and select version (marked as "Beta")
  4. Click on the Install button to proceed
