Nx Germano Studios New York brings the A-list acoustics of the legendary NYC studio – originally known as The Hit Factory – to your own set of headphones. Monitor your mixes in a precise model of the iconic control room, complete with its custom-built 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 has been a top choice for celebrity artists of every genre.
For nearly five decades, major producers and artists – from rock and pop icons to hip hop royalty – have flocked to Germano’s control rooms for their signature power, punch, and club-worthy low end.
The Nx Germano Studios plugin 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 head motion tracking.
Now you can check your mixes through Germano’s top-shelf stereo monitors: The NS10 near-fields; the custom Exigy S412G four-way system with dual 18-inch subwoofers; and the Germano Acoustics A2s.
You can also mix for surround on headphones, with Germano’s 5.1 system equipped with five Germano Acoustics A2 speakers and subwoofer.
With Nx Germano Studios you can:
- Create mixes on your own set of headphones that translate to any system
- Check your tracks on a high-end monitoring environment acoustically tuned for hit-sound success
- Make better mixing decisions for stereo, surround, low end response, depth, and more – with any set of headphones, wherever you may be.
- If your studio setup has acoustic challenges, or if you’re on the go, plug in your headphones to monitor in the famed Germano Studios. And if you do have access to a solid acoustic environment, Nx Germano Studios gives you another outstanding monitoring reference.
Nx Germano Studios also supports head tracking via your webcam or the Waves Nx Head Tracker Bluetooth device for an enhanced, realistic 3D spatial effect.
Nx Germano Studios New York is the latest in the Waves Nx line of plugins, reproducing the acoustics of world-famous mixing studios such as Abbey Road Studio 3, Ocean Way Nashville, and Chris Lord-Alge's Mix LA. Now you can cross-reference your mixes in the world’s best mixing environments – no matter where you are.
