Learn how to use the Nx Head Tracker device together with the Nx Virtual Mix Room, Abbey Road Studio 3 or Nx Ocean Way Nashville plugins, in order to improve mixing, tracking and monitoring on headphones.
Please note: All instructions in this video apply to the Abbey Road Studio 3 plugin as well as the Nx Virtual Mix Room plugin. The video was originally created in 2016, when the Nx Virtual Mix Room plugin was released, so only that plugin is shown in the video. However, the Nx Head Tracker can be paired with the Abbey Road Studio 3 plugin in exactly the same way.
About the Nx Head Tracker
The Nx Head Tracker is a small wireless Bluetooth sensor that attaches to your headphones and communicates with Waves’ immersive audio plugins (Nx Virtual Mix Room or Abbey Road Studio 3). It tracks your head movements in full 360 degrees, with maximal speed and accuracy. It then passes the information to the plugin in order to optimize the realistic spatial effect created on headphones.
Sensor Fusion option
In the Tracking Device menu (see step #7 above), you may alternatively choose the Sensor Fusion option, which lets you use both the Nx Head Tracker and your computer’s webcam simultaneously, combining the advantages of each and bringing the head tracking rate up to 80 fps. For detailed info on the Sensor Fusion option, check out the Overview tab of the Nx Head Tracker page.
