Profile export availability and requirements

SoundID Reference for Multichannel license required for measuring and exporting multichannel speaker setup calibration profiles.

Calibration profile export for Aurora(n) is available in SoundID Reference version 5.11.0. and newer (download here).


Measuring your speaker setup

To begin the measurement process, launch the SoundID Reference Measure app. The 5-stage measurement process will take around 40-50 min to complete, depending on the complexity of your setup configuration.

If you're having difficulties following the process, or if you're encountering any warnings, we recommend following this guide: Stereo speaker measurement troubleshooting guide

Exporting the calibration profile 

With the measurement process completed and a calibration profile saved, please follow these instructions for the export:

  1. Launch the SoundID Reference standalone app;
  2. Add your output device and load your calibration profile;
  3. Choose one of the target curves - Flat Target, Dolby Atmos Music, Custom Target, Translation Check, adjust other settings as needed;
  4. Export the calibration profile via the output panel - click on ". . ."  > Export;
  5. Select your device and proceed through the rest of the steps as guided. 



By default, the exported calibration profile (a .bin file) will be saved in the following directory:

  • Windows: 
    AppData\Local\Sonarworks\SoundID Reference\Sonarworks Projects\Exported Presets
  • macOS:
    /Library/Application Support/Sonarworks/Sonarworks Projects/Exported Presets


Note: The user\AppData and User/Library directories on Windows and macOS are hidden by default. To enable showing hidden files and folders, follow the instructions here: How to show hidden files Mac and Windows?

  • Calibration
  • Target Mode
  • Dry/Wet

The exported calibration profile will not include the following information (your target device may use its own processing solutions for these DSP features):
