The Waves Nx system was released a while back and featured head tracking to better immerse engineers and performers into headphone mixes while either tracking or mixing. Now, one of the things we at Everything Recording wanted to see in the system is finally released… kind of. Nx now supports EQ curves to balance out certain brands of headphones.
KNOXVILLE, TN, July 5, 2017 — Waves Audio, a leading provider of digital signal processing solutions and digital music production tools, announces an update to the Waves Nx Virtual Mix Room plugin – a new headphone EQ calibration feature. Added in response to popular demand, this new feature allows users to select a correction EQ curve for specific popular headphone models.
Nx Virtual Mix Room is a virtual monitoring plugin that recreates the three-dimensional acoustics of a professionally treated mix room on any set of headphones. This allows you to hear on headphones the same depth and panoramic stereo image you would hear from speakers in a physical room, enabling you to properly judge how your headphone mixes will translate to speakers.
Based on precision headphone measurement data provided by www.headphone.com, the Nx plugin’s new EQ calibration curves are designed to balance out any extreme features in your headphone’s frequency response, correcting them toward a common frequency balance. This provides a more transparent starting point for monitoring and mixing.
The following headphone models are currently supported by Nx:
Audeze EL-8 (Closed-Back)
Audeze iSINE 20
Beyerdynamic DT-880 (250 ohm)
Beyerdynamic DT-990 (250 ohm)
Sennheiser HD-280 Pro
Using Nx Virtual Mix Room with EQ calibration, users can now mix and monitor on headphones with greater confidence than ever, experiencing precise, reliable high-end sound in the studio, at home or on the road.
