Good at fixing small problems in frequency response
RF12, 05.04.2018
I got this program to help finalize my studio monitor room. I have heavily treated room, and good enough monitors. Still to be sure I wanted something to measure my room and possibly fix the minor problems that were there (bump around 100Hz that comes with smallish rooms etc). For this pourpose the program works well. The most fixing it had to do was around 6dB, so minor changes only considering room size.
So how dit this affect the sound of my speakers in the room? It helped to clarify bass and mid frequencies, and revealed some things that were hard to pinpoint inboth my and others mixes. The systemwide part of the program makes it easy to listen music from youtube/spotify/etc. and the daw plugin is nice too. The only problem in systemwide is that it only uses windows direct sound (I'm a windows user), and has no ASIO support yet, though Sonarworks seems to be implementing it later this year.
Also I would like to say that the program is very easy to use. It guides you through the measurement phase very well. The only thing I would have liked for them to include was a mic clip. I had to resort taking a clip from a sennheiser handheld mic, and pad it a bit to get a snug fit so that I could use a mic stand.

great software for ROOM calibration
musician123, 21.11.2018
After hearing all the reviews I expected nothing more than excellence and confidence in my speaker system in a room which is far from perfect... The calibration took a bit longer than declared by the software but was nonetheless straightforward. I was and still am surprised by how much low frequencies the calibration removed from my system (I am using ADAM A7 and ADAM Sub8 for monitoring so I was used to a lot of bass - currently testing how this will affect my mixing...

Anyway, I'm still testing but so far it seems all my mixing mistakes are now shown to me straight in the face :) Which obviously is a great thing so that I can work with more confidence now...
Also the cool thing is SW provides a two ready made profiles for FIlm music mixing - nice - they could have a few more profiles for customised output.
Bear in mind this software is for your ROOM not for your sound system.

PROS:
- simple usage
- straightforward calibration
- much more confidence in sound mixing

CONS:
- a bit pricey
