This is an awesome product! However, can we get a resizable GUI in the future? Not a deal breaker by any means, but laptop users will rejoice :) Almost 5 stars...
Simplified my referencing needs. Everything you need in one place, love it!
Best A/B. Period.
by Jesse Cook
If you're having trouble with your mixes and they for whatever reason just aren't translating well to different systems then this will be your lifesaver. This is more than just your typical A/B plugin. This allows you to verify every aspect of yours and your references frequency throughout the spectrum. It allows you to solo specific frequencies, mids and sides. Compare stereo image, dynamic range, LUFS.. the possibilities are endless. Plugin Alliance has got you covered!
This is the one plug in that is on every mix I do. Probably the best plug in I own.

Super wonderful and super useful plugin for mixing and mastering. Helps a lot to compare your mixes/masters to a reference tracks and achieve a desirable quality for better mixes and masters!
This is so very useful!
by Black Frost
I tend to circle around my own stuff a lot and when I notice that I NEED to reference to see/hear if my stuff is AT ALL anyhow realistic/useful/good, A/B Metric comes in SO very handy. Absolutely recommended. If you are no engineer, but a recording musician, you need this, if you want your mixes to compete with all the other recordings out there. Easy to use. No more bad surprises in the end.

I never do reviews, there's enough to go around. I thought this was just another comparison plugin. I can't master without it anymore. Great interface, great feedback and levels. I bet any mastering engineer mastering in the box would instantly miss it once placed last on their plugin chain. Just lovely. Your ears and this plugin, that's all you need.
Saves time and shows great information
by Adrian S
When mixing and mastering, I used to load my references in an extra audio track on my DAW, which is not so great, as I could not really compare them ‘in real time’. With this plugin I'm able to do that now, hence saving time and working in a more efficient way. Also, the info about dynamics, stereo image and frequencies' spectrum is awesome. It's like having several plugins in just one. Perhaps it is not one of those fancy purchases, like that analog coloring stuff, but surely is a powerful tool that will help yu to get better results at work.
A must for mixing/mastering
by Under A Mile
I really like the ease with which this helps to sanity check mixes. Loading in reference tracks is easy and helpful for A/B comparisons. I use the loudness, spectrum, dynamics displays in pre-mastering in order to find any overloud peaks and ensure I'm sending the best mix for final mastering. I also find the gain adjustment really useful when aiming for a target loudness.
Really great, easy to use product. I don't ever wanna do another mix without this thing. I have even found myself using some of the analysis tools with this on individual tracks when I have tricky issues to deal with. I love it. Well worth adding to your toolbox.
