More detail and space

It sure makes a difference. Can hear more detail and space.

Seriously exceeds expections!

You need to demo this to believe it. It seriously takes all the claustrophobic, stuffiness out of your headphones, spreads the sonic spectrum out in a larger area that you can make much better sense of. I also didn't realize how fatiguing headphones can be until I switched Nx on and off again. I used Audio-Technica M50's with Nx, and it's fantastic. I am sometimes forced to mix on headphones. In the past, I've tried to refrain from making any big decisions when listening on cans. The horror that strikes when you finally listen to your headphone mix on monitors, ugh. It's disheartening. With Nx, I'm not longer horrified the morning after! The first day demoing Nx on my laptop, I was able to clean up some bass guitar clarity and muddy low-end drum stuff on headphones. When I listened to that mix back in the studio... huge improvement. The short of it is, mixing on headphones is no longer something you should try to avoid. Even in the studio, I cross reference now with headphones more effectively because of Nx. I never turn Nx off either. I've learned that turning it off brings me instantly to a place of ear fatigue that's very uncomfortable. I don't regularly use the head tracking feature. It's cool, and I'll turn it on occasionally to get additional perspective, but it's definitely not a necessity to make this a useful tool. I ignored this plugin for a while assuming it was just hype and nonsense. Only a few minutes into the demo though, and I was convinced. No regrets at all on this one! Take the time to demo it for sure!

All I can say is this software makes ALL the difference in the world! My 'room' is so not conducive to mixing at all, this fixes the problem. Saved loads of $'s on room treatment! Thank you Sweetwater and Waves!!!!!!

Don't have a room?

I have tendinitis bad, ringing ears. And, I'm also so poor if I had to pay a nickel to take a dump I'd have to throw up. I have got to write that blues song. But! I do have head phones! This software is the answer people. So easy to get a good mix, and quick. My mentor has been in the business out west since the 60's, seen the switch from analog to digital. After buying this software I started getting "This is the best mix I've heard you do so far Dude" statements. Don't have a room? Don't have the $'s to build one? Spend the $'s and get this, you'll be glad you did, OH! And did I say, the gang at Sweetwater is AWESOME!

San dimas high school football rules!

I saw this plug promoted on youtube, and didn't click through to play the vid i was originally looking for. As a person with hearing loss in one ear, i've always had to cheat, cocking the good ear towards the source. But with headphones and LRC vintage mixing, the maracas would be absent unless i reversed the cans. And in a milieu of amplitude and toontrack and motel rooms, i find myself working in the environment of headphones more and more often. The video head-tracking has some delay, but it beats tracking/mixing in mono or flipping the headphones. When the "IMU tracker" comes out i will certainly try it out. Waves user since 99, and this is the one that will keep me coming back (because it is independent of the rest of my WUP). I'm not aware of its equivalent.

Sweetwater Advice

I use Waves Nx both on the master buss in my Pro Tools sessions and for headphone mixing and tracking through my DiGiGrid IOS real-time plug-in processor. All of the sonic imaging - front to back and left to right - translates to my monitors, so late-night headphone mixing is no problem. The best part for me is the way the headphone cues make even panned mono signals sound natural, without the stuffy closeness of traditional headphone monitors. It feels like I'm not even wearing headphones!
