Waves Audio Offers Nx Virtual Mix Room over Headphones
Waves Audio is displaying its Waves Nx Virtual Mix Room on the NAMM, a plugin that puts you in the sweet spot – everywhere you go. Powered by the company’s groundbreaking Nx technology, Waves Nx lets you hear, on any pair of headphones, the same natural depth, natural reflections, and panoramic stereo image you would be hearing from speakers in an actual room. It turns headphones into a more reliable mixing and monitoring tool by letting you hear everything with real-world dimension.
Waves Nx finally bridges the gap between monitoring on speakers and monitoring on headphones. Waves Nx with real-time head tracking works by taking advantage of your computer’s camera. By letting you hear the depth and stereo spread you would be hearing on external monitors, Nx gives you an accurate representation of how your headphone mix will translate to loudspeakers without any coloration of your sound. By delivering the natural listening experience of a physical room, Waves Nx also makes the headphone experience more comfortable and ear-friendly over long periods of time.
As a result of the success of Nx Virtual Mix Room, Waves has also introduced a consumer application, Nx Head Tracker, that allows you to enjoy the enhanced realism of being in the Virtual Mix Room, anywhere and everywhere you go. Waves Nx tracks the actual movements of the user’s head, to render the slight nuances that create a real, dynamic and variable sensory experience – appropriately positioning the audio in the left and right headphones to simulate movement through the audio space.
