Greetings fellow traveler! If you're reading this, it means that you have either purchased, or are considering purchasing, our Mobius Creators Edition and are wondering..."What exactly IS the Mobius Creators Edition?" The more philosophical among you may even be wondering, "WHY is the Mobius Creators Edition?"
The Mobius Creators Edition is a bundle specifically tailored to the needs of content creators who work with 3D Audio. It comes with one Mobius headset and two digital licenses for the Waves B360 Ambisonics Encoder and the Waves NX Virtual Mix Room. Both of these plugins support VST, AU, and AAX hosts which means that you can run them in most Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs).
The Waves B360 Ambisonics Encoder allows you to convert either an entire project, or individual tracks within a project, into 1st Order Ambisonics B-Format in real time. From within the B360's intuitive user interface, you can easily pan your freshly converted audio within a 360° spherical soundfield with fully automatable Width, Rotation, and Elevation parameters. This allows you to position audio within a 3D environment accurately without having to manually approximate the correct positioning through more conventional speaker arrangements such as 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound.
The Waves NX Virtual Mix Room allows you to monitor your Ambisonics or Surround Sound mix within your DAW through your headphones. With seamlessly integrated head-tracking and HRTF (Head Related Transfer Function) technology, the NX provides you with a realistic out-of-head listening experience designed to emulate what you would hear when listening to a set of speakers in an acoustically treated room. Because Mobius uses the same technology that is found inside Waves' own NX Head Tracker, it can route all of its head tracking information straight to the plugin - no extra dongle required!
As Virtual and Augmented Reality technology becomes more widely accessible, more content creators/industry professionals will seek to push the boundaries of that technology. But each shattered boundary yields more questions, necessitating the constant evolution of existing, or sometimes the development of entirely new, workflows. This is where Audeze comes in.
Because VR and AU are here to stay, we believe that both developers and consumers of this technology need to have access to tools which function effectively and intuitively within these mediums, and which do not require a prohibitive degree of financial or spatial investment. Mobius is precisely such a tool.
For developers, Mobius allows you to mix and monitor 3D and Surround Sound audio without a fully treated studio equipped with a suite of professional monitors. When used in tandem with the Waves B360 and Waves NX Virtual Mix Room plugins, your workflow becomes even more efficient thanks to the ability to convert, mix, and monitor in Ambisonics all without having to export your project. Mobius interfaces seamlessly with both of these plugins to provide an efficient, intuitive, and cost-effective means of creating 3D audio.
We believe that these are vital tools that should be easily accessible to any who wish to use them, which is why we offer our Mobius Creators Edition.
