    I see Sonarworks have changed to SoundID software, it looks like its some new online-based thing.
    Last cracked version of Reference was released shortly after SoundID was introduced this year.

    So is it safe from release groups now that its web auth?

    Has anyone got it & how much of a PITA is the new online thing?
    Its pretty damn expensive, even if i buy a behringer mic to go with it instead of the official one..

    Another way to grab cash. They removed the simulations of speaker models for copyright infringement and they actually added them to this version. No go for me.

    I dont know about it being exactly the same, as they are touting new re-written audio engine for win10&11, more stable, less latency etc

    I see on reddit threads that the "new online" version seems more like the "buggy, better at stopping cracking teams" version...
