I was an early adopter of the first ‘generic’ NX plugin and use it with my Sennheiser HD600s, for which NX has a specific EQ curve. I got very good results, a massive improvement on any previous headphone mixes (and I’m sure we all know just how bad those can be!)
Since then I also got the ‘Nashville’ studio room version and have been giving that some solid use for a couple of months. Good results also, but I am wondering now if the Nashville iteration is a touch ‘flattering’ and will go back to the original generic NX to make some comparison mixes. I have a feeling the original NX does a better job of the basic objective - achieving, on headphones, mixes that are ‘out of the box’ acceptable on speakers with minimal tweaking needed… even (am I really saying this!?) no tweaking at all.
Now there is a new ‘CLA’ room iteration to consider - at the moment I am not going to get another version of NX but I did wonder, and hence this post, if any others might have some views on the subject. I will go back to the original NX, do some mixes and post my view on the comparisons. All comments welcome!
Thanks - Nigel.
