It’s not just an EQ curve. It’s an entire binaural and room modeling and crosstalk simulating plug-in. It’s obviously not going to create a perfect situation. It’s specifically recreating a bunch of inherently imperfect aspects of real world monitoring. I use NX (the original, not this one) from time to time, and especially as an extra monitoring space for surround sound content as my room isn’t ideal for my physical quad setup I use from time to time. This stuff is like using MixCubes or a monitoring system in a different room, etc.Beat didn't say that either. Nevertheless, he is 100% correct, especially with the coloring-analogy.
If this $ 99 plugin magically first neutralizes your cheap headphones completely flat and then makes them sound and behave exactly like the room in Abbey Road, I'll take ten pairs right away and sell my monitor pairs away.
Seriously people, do not EQ your speakers or headphones on top of already-colored (original) sound. The whole idea is to get your monitors and phones as FLAT as possible in most cases- not to paint "green on red". Your mixes will sound horrible if you do that and completely different anywhere else than at your control room. At that point you may as well render with the ABS3 on and it prolly doesn't make it any worse from that.
It’s not too expensive and it’s a very interesting tool at the very least.
