Waves have just introduced Nx – a virtual monitoring plugin that simulates the ideal acoustics of a high-end mix room – inside your headphones.
Nx – Virtual Mix Room over Headphones
Powered by Waves’ groundbreaking Nx technology, Waves Nx lets you hear, on headphones, the same natural depth, natural reflections, and panoramic stereo image you would be hearing from speakers in an actual room.
Waves Nx turns your headphones into a more reliable mixing and monitoring tool by letting you hear everything with real-world dimension, rather than flat in your head. Insert the plugin on your master buss, and hear all the elements of your mix accurately laid out in space, just as you would in the sweet spot of a great-sounding professional mix room.
Nx will work together with the Nx Head Tracker for Headphones (to be released, price to be announced). According to Waves, this wireless device latches on to your headphones and enables the Nx Virtual Mix Room plugin to follow your head movements in real time with full accuracy.
The Nx plugin costs $49 ($99 reg.)
