Antivirus blocking Reference 4 installation

Oftentimes antivirus programs will flag Sonarworks installers as a threat. However, we guarantee that an original installer, downloaded from our download page (and our web page in general) is virus-free.


We've reached out multiple times to different manufacturers of these programs and have had their validation that our installers are indeed free of malware or viruses. In spite of that, these false flags still pop up from time to time.


If you encounter an issue where the antivirus is blocking the Reference 4 installation on your device, please temporarily disable your antivirus and install our software. After that, please enable your antivirus again.
