Product Overview Waves Nx is a virtual monitoring plugin that simulates the ideal acoustics of a high-end mix room – inside your 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.

Waves Nx finally bridges the gap between monitoring on speakers and monitoring on headphones. 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. 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.

Want to mix for 7.1, 5.1 or 5.0 surround on your regular stereo headphones? Waves Nx lets you do exactly that – a true revolution in the world of surround mixing.

Best of all: Waves Nx does all this without coloring your sound. What you hear is your mix, exactly the way you want it to sound – only now you have a more accurate way to monitor it on headphones.

Use Waves Nx with real-time head tracking – taking advantage of your computer’s camera or the Nx Head Tracker unit (coming soon) – and enjoy the enhanced realism of being in the Virtual Mix Room, anywhere and everywhere you go.

NX Head Tracker

This small Bluetooth device latches on to your headphones and tracks your head movements in order to augment the immersive 3D audio experience created by Nx technology.

Use the Nx Head Tracker along with the Nx 3D audio apps to experience the music, movies and games you love in 3D audio – on your computer, tablet or mobile device, using any set of headphones.

Use the Nx Head Tracker along with the Nx Virtual Mix Room plugin in order to recreate on headphones the ideal spatial acoustics of a high-end room, improving your headphone mixing and recording experience.

Why Head Tracking Matters
When you hear sounds in the real world, your physical head movements help your brain create a sense of three-dimensional audio depth.

When your head moves, your brain remembers where the sound used to be and where it is now, combines this with its knowledge that the head (and not the external source) has moved, and uses this information to locate the external source and construct a three-dimensional “audio scene.”

However, when you listen to sound on headphones, the audio scene constantly shifts with your head, and your experience of three-dimensional auditory space is gone.

By tracking your head movements and adjusting the audio to the direction and orientation of your head, the Nx Head Tracker (combined with Nx software) helps reconstruct the realistic three-dimensional audio experience of sounds coming at you from external sources in the real world.

Nx Head Tracker, Webcam – or the Best of Both Worlds?
There are several ways you can track your head movements to enhance the Nx experience: you can use the Nx Head Tracker device; you can use your computer’s camera; or, if you are using the Nx Virtual Mix Room plugin, you can use both methods simultaneously, enjoying the best of both worlds (we call this option “sensor fusion” – see more details in the table below).

Using the Nx Head Tracker has several advantages over using your webcam. Here are some of the main ones:

The Nx Head Tracker is faster and more accurate, providing a much smoother tracking experience than a computer camera.With a webcam, you are limited to using Nx on a stationary device, for example a desktop computer, and you must be facing the camera at all times. With the Nx Head Tracker you can track your head movements while you are moving around, for example using a mobile device.A webcam can track your head movements in ±30 degrees only. The Nx Head Tracker can track them in full 360 degrees.With a webcam, only one user can use Nx software at a time; with the Nx Head Tracker, several users (each with his or her own Nx Head Tracker device) can experience Nx simultaneously on the same audio source.
