You may remember that Waves launched a Kickstarter campaign to get the hardware Head Tracker for their Waves Nx plug-in into our 3D space. The Head Tracker has been designed so it can be fitted to almost all types of headphones and can be easily removed without damaging your cans. Well they have done it! Waves have just announced that they have passed their funding target on Kickstarter for $200,000. This is what they had to say...
Our Kickstarter campaign for the Nx has met its funding goal of $200,000! Thank you everyone who backed Nx and helped bring the 3D audio revolution a big step further!
We are now on the verge of changing the audio world once again and touching people’s lives by letting everyone hear sound the way it was meant to be heard. And we couldn’t have done it without you!
Our team is working hard to release Nx as soon as possible. We will start fulfilling your Kickstarter orders by mid-August, and you can expect them to arrive not very long afterwards.
We know you’re eager to experience Nx – so expect a bonus even before your order arrives! We will give all Kickstarter backers access to Nx beta software as soon as it is ready, so you can get an early sense of what you’re about to experience.
Finally – there are still 4 more days for more people to join and back Nx! So spread the word – and thank you once again for all your support!
$200,000 raised on a Kickstarter campaign, who would have thought it. It is certainly a resounding confirmation that virtual reality, 3D audio and immersive sound are here to stay big time. Congratulations to Waves for this success. We look forward to the fruits of this successful campaign.
