Waves Audio is now shipping Waves Nx, a Virtual Mix Room plugin. Waves Nx gives you the optimal acoustics of a great mix room, right inside a pair of headphones. Powered by Waves’ Nx technology, Waves says this plugin lets you hear, on headphones, the same natural depth, natural reflections and panoramic stereo image you would be hearing from speakers in an actual, physical room.
Waves Nx “unmasks” headphone sound, letting you hear everything with real-world dimension, rather than flat in your head. This way, you can hear all the elements of your mix accurately laid out in space, just as you would in the sweet spot of a beautiful-sounding room.
Waves Nx bridges the gap between monitoring on speakers and monitoring on headphones: no longer do you have to worry that what you’ve mixed on headphones will sound different once you switch to speakers. By letting you hear on headphones the same natural depth and stereo spread you would be hearing on external monitors, Waves Nx puts an end to constant cross-referencing between the two. Use Waves Nx with real-time head tracking – taking advantage of your computer’s camera or the Waves Head Tracker unit.
