OUR PART # NX-HEAD-TRACKER
The Waves Nx Head Tracker is a 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 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.
Use the Nx Head Tracker along with the forthcoming Nx application to experience the music, movies and games you love in 3D audio – on your computer, tablet or mobile device, using any set of headphones.
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.
