Thank you - certainly looks "better", in that the sub bass and very top end are flatter - there is actually an *extra" peak in the hi end though!

"Clear !"

Foley: loud zapping noise, followed by moaning from the patient.

Right. Thread resurrected ...


These headphone calibration plugins of which many speak.

So you drop those in the master channel, yes ?

Would a calibration plugin fight with Waves Abbey Road studio three?

Is it a good idea to run both ?

Yes, I know I should download the demo and try it out. But it's a busy week.

Instant gratification is actually pretty good. It's fast as well.

Not necessarily the master channel, but in principle yeah - whatever channel you monitor through be it a bus or the master.

Doesn't seem to interfere in the slightest with Nx, if anything it complements it - be sure to run it AFTER the NxVMR / AR3 in the chain though.

Speaking about Sonarworks Ref 4.

I didn’t find it any easier to mix with the 650s. They simply aren’t physically capable of very good bass no matter what the correction curve.

The Audeze on the other hand are a big step forward and with Sonarworks Reference they are just outstanding.
