This guide provides information on how to export the speaker calibration profile to a supported device. The information includes details of what settings and adjustments will be kept inside the profile export.

Calibration profile export
The calibration profile export feature enables users to export a calibration profile to supported integration devices. The calibration will be running on the hardware DSP level, and the SoundID Reference software is no longer required to process the audio signal. The exported profile will also feature the settings you have applied (Custom Target, Dry/Wet, Translation Check, etc.).
To export, navigate to the output preset you wish to export, click on the three-dot menu (“⋯”) > Export, and select one of the supported devices.
NOTE! Profile export is only available to full license owners, and dedicated partnership trial licenses. Profile export is not available with the regular 21-day trial licenses.
SoundID Reference app will provide you with a list of supported devices, and the list is expected to grow in the future. For more details on the supported devices, visit our integrations page.

What's included in the exported calibration profile
Only selected and enabled features in SoundID Reference will be exported. Make sure the Calibration is Enabled, so the features are successfully included in the export. A successful profile export will generate a file that will include most of your assigned output preset settings:
- Calibration profile: the selected speaker or headphone correction curve data
- Dry/Wet: the level of calibration applied
- Target Curve: the selected target mode, with all of your custom settings applied
- Safe Headroom: the upper limit of the output gain that prevents clipping
- Listening Spot (speaker profiles only): volume and timing differences measured between speakers
- Limit Controls (speaker profiles only): frequency range affected by calibration
NOTE! The settings included in the export file may vary for different supported devices. For a detailed list of included parameters, click on the individual supported device descriptions above.
Is everything being processed from the exported profile?
No, your target device may use its own processing for features like:
- Output Gain: the gain control will take place on the integration device
- Filter Type: processing will take place on the integration device, using its own filter solution
- Safe Headroom: the values are exported in the profile, and applied via functionality on the integration device
