USC calibration - BETA RELEASE
Calibrate your OLLOs & expand your monitoring options with the Waves NX room modelling plugins.
Upgrade is available for S5X 1.0, S4X 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 and S4R 1.1, 1.2.
It's Included by default with the latest S4&S5 editions.
All our headphones are acustically flat-tuned to ~2dB tolerance out of the box. With the help of software we are now able to fine-tune every unit individually to ~1dB tolerance from the target cuve. That's better than any generic correction softwares out-there operating within +/-3dB to Harman target or similar.
Upgrade USC with the Waves Nx head tracking and the best sounding control rooms on the planet
No, not at all. We'd recommend you demo all the rooms and then choose one or two favourites. It's better to have head tracker than another room.
You can try all the rooms by downloading them from the Waves Central. Licence will be sent to you after you complete the purchase. Once delivered, refunds are no longer possible. If you have questions about this, reach to support.
For engineers working in great rooms, there's little benefits using room emulation. But there's still huge benefit with using USC calibration file and even room emulations if you guest work in many studios. It will make you room independant. You can guest mix in any studio with confidence.
Yes. Waves Audio offers demo versions (try demo before purchasing) but as calibration is required for the test, we offer 7 days trial period after which USC returns are no longer possible.
In case you own NX or have a subscription with Waves, you just need to buy the USC file to go with your OLLO Headphones. We'd recommend head tracker in case you don't have it yet.
Yes. You can purchase the headphones with USC and add on any or all of the Waves Nx rooms. Refunds for delivered digital goods are not possible.
Waves uses Harman target curve for tuning headphones. Also, they include generic EQ that is not a unit specific EQ. Best case tolerances are within +/-3dB, similar to other correction softwares.
The USC is a calibration file made for your specific unit. It's super fine tuned to 1dB tolerance by playing pink noise through a live EQ until the frequency response on the IEC60318-4 ear simulator is matched to the target curve for your headphones model within +/-1dB 1/3oct RTA smoothing.
In short, more than twice as accurate as generic correction solutions.
