Powered by Waves’ groundbreaking Nx technology, Waves Nx Virtual Mix Room is a virtual monitoring plugin that simulates the ideal acoustics of a high-end mix room inside any set of headphones. Nx lets you hear the same natural depth, natural reflections and panoramic stereo image you would be hearing from speakers in an actual room, turning 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.
The Nx plugin has now been updated to work with up to six Nx Head Trackers at the same time. This allows as many as six musicians (or five musicians and one engineer) to hear Nx simultaneously in their headphones while recording. Alternatively, two (or more) mixing engineers can now use Nx to mix together on headphones.
Having the right headphone monitor mix is often what separates an average recording session from a great one. With Nx, recording engineers can provide the musicians with clearer, more open headphone mixes that spread across the full three-dimensional audio spectrum, as if you were listening to monitors in a real room. This provides a better recording experience, as the musicians enjoy a more open, uncongested mix, with greater detail and clarity, and can deliver great performances more easily.
