Waves Audio launches Nx Germano Studios

Waves Audio, the world’s leading developer of professional audio signal processing technologies and maker of audio plug-ins for mixing, music production, mastering, sound design, broadcast, post-production and sound in direct, now offers the Waves Nx Germano Studios New York plug-in..

Nx Germano Studios brings the A-list acoustics of legendary Germano studio – originally known as The Hit Factory – to your own headphones. Monitor your mixes in a precise model of the iconic control room, with its custom stereo and surround monitoring systems, so you can create better mixes, anywhere, anytime.

From David Bowie, Stevie Wonder, the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and Michael Jackson to Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, Post Malone, J Balvin and Kanye West, Germano Studios has been the first choice for famous artists of all genres.

For nearly five decades, leading producers and artists – from rock and pop icons to hip-hop royalty – have flocked to Germano’s control room for their power, punch and bass worthy of a club.

The Waves Nx Germano Studios plug-in reproduces the precise acoustic response of Germano’s Studio 1 control room, based on precision acoustic measurements combined with Waves Nx® spatial technology consisting of channel crosstalk, inter-aural delays (ITD), filters (ILD), room reflections and tracking head movements.

Now you can check your mixes through Germano’s high-end stereo monitors: the NS10 near-fields, the custom Exigy S412G four-way system with two 18-inch subwoofers, and the Germano Acoustics A2s.

You can also mix for surround sound through headphones, with Germano’s 5.1 system featuring five Germano Acoustics A2 speakers and a subwoofer.

With Waves Nx Germano studios, you can:

  • Create mixes on your own headphones that adapt to any system
  • Check your tracks on a high-end, acoustically tuned monitoring environment for blockbuster sonic success
  • Make better mixing decisions for stereo, surround, low-end response, depth and more – with any headphones, anywhere

If your studio setup presents acoustic challenges or you’re on the go, you can simply plug in your headphones to monitor in the famous Germano studios. And if you do have access to a solid acoustic environment, Nx Germano Studios offers you another exceptional monitoring reference.

Nx Germano Studios also supports head tracking via your webcam or the Waves Nx Head Tracker Bluetooth device for an enhanced and realistic 3D spatial effect.
