Breen:
You said that you read the EULA?

I just installed the demo so I( could read the licensing, and there is some very explicit language that would indicate that you may have crossed a few lines. Read the stuff about intellectual property and reverse engineering. Just sayin'......

I have a good set of 'cans' Beyer Dynamic Dt-250, so I am wondering about what kind of benefits / enhancements the library adds to the headphone way of working?


I don't think that this does any spatial processing, only equalisation.

Take a look at the new Waves Nx. It mimics monitor spatial acoustics in headphones. You could use it along with Breens EQ. It's interesting but not sure it would really help mixing. I think EQ-ing headphone frequency response flat is more important. If anybody has tried it please comment.

I said no, I did't. I did not see it when installing SW and can not find any on my computer. If you have one, please, send it to me.

i think the sonarworks software works fantastic actually
i do own the software so i have been using it for at least a year now , its actually no problem to get good mixes with flat cans, i have used cans for so long now that i prefer the cans over my monitors hehe

i probably use my monitors more when i get the speaker calibration

i haven't tried the nebula sonarworks samples yet, i have to have 44.1 for that but the software will give you much more options, and even if the nebula is very close it will not be spot on, spot on will get you better results :)

try the trial against the sample if you are using the sample

instead of buying another regular headset calibration license which im against
right now since i already have it
i will instead buy a set of pre calibrated headphones from sonarworks at a later time
to get as accurate and flat headset i can possibly get :)

i do not have waves nx but if its only eq curves wouldn't it be very easy to clone it with waves own q clone hehe

its on sale right now though and 49 dollars ain't bad if its a good software,
me im so used to mix dry with sonarworks im not sure i need it
would absolutely be cool if someone who uses it could comment on how it is in use :)

Cheers :)

The EULA is displayed when you are installing it. In fact, you checked the box that says that you read it and agreed with it while installing...We all get so used to clicking those boxes that we forget that MAYBE we should read it. Run the installer again and read it, you do indeed have it.
