Systemwide calibration only on the headphone output and not on the speakers.

    I also would like to know this.

    I have Fireface UC with outputs 7/8 for headphones <-- I have a preset in Sonarworks Systemwide for this

    However I also have a pair of speakers on outputs 1/2 that I'd like to use un-calibrated.  I cannot create a preset for them because it requires a calibration profile. 

    How do you do this?

    Hey! Thanks for the questions, and apologies for the lag in the moderation/response time here! 

     

    This functionality is determined by the interface drivers that you're employing. In other words, the Systemwide app is not really changing anything to the capability of the driver - there are interface drivers out there that only support a single signal being output through all of the interface outputs (not just the specific ones). Systemwide is not really changing anything but there is an obvious problem because the signal is now tailored for a specific output device and will affect the unwanted one (in this example, a headphone profile applied on the speakers). 

     

    However, assuming we're talking about Windows, Systemwide actually has two different output modes: WASAPI and ASIO. So the functionality of the interface is split into two driver formats. In other words, this functionality might actually be available in one of the output modes. You can easily check this simply by switching between the WASAPI/ASIO output modes in Systmewide settings. See how to do it here: ASIO mode in Systemwide [Win]

    Hello Karlis,

    I'm actually experencing the same problem but on MacOS. I want to split two signal, one is treated by SW and the second one not treated because I have a Subpac.
    I want to have untreated signal for my Subpac because due to correction he's not working well. +6db at 80hz you can imagine what I'm feeling.
    Is it possible to do it?

    Hi Thomas, 

     

    I've had a quick look at your support ticket thread, and it looks like you've managed to resolve the matter by splitting the signal using AudioJack. Clever stuff, thanks for the tip!

     

    I should add that there are more solutions available for this on Mac, for example, the Loopback software, which is working quite well with Sonarworks, based on the feedback we've seen from our users. There are more third-party software solutions for this out there too - it is definitely worth looking into.

     

    In other news, we are extremely happy to announce that for Subpac specifically, we are joining forces for a direct hardware integration project! This will finally provide the ultimate workflow and user experience for Sonarworks + Subpac users. Read the full story in our Blog here: Sonarworks x SUBPAC are joining forces to redefine how and where music is created.
