Sonoma has a great clarity in the mids and highs, great resolution.

Linear model 2 is excellent - the original just felt a tad dull to me, this adds just a bit more high end and it makes all the difference.

Excited to dig deeper and get to know the new rooms, but so far Steven's room seems to be the best capture yet....
So glad you dig it! Yeah I'm a big fan of the Steven Mix Room myself!

Steven, will the "speaker"/HRTF/binaural mode of HD-Linear be coming in the next update?
I started working on the HD Linear HRTF/Binaural mode but it wasn't ready for prime time. It's close so you'll see it soon.

Congrats Steven and Team Slate!
Thank you so much! You helped a ton in the beta process for this update so I share the sentiment with you!

I may be wrong, but I've heard somewhere that HD-Linear 2 features some level of cross-talk between the ears. That's probably why it sounds more natural.
For HD Linear 2 we did a slightly better measurement process and then also applied a bit more of the correction curve. There is not HRTF, but in a future update there will be!

Glad you like my Mix Room!

Thanks! I LOOOOOVE those PMCs and then the Trinnov makes them even more clean and revealing!

HD Linear2 is still just a very flat headphone with no binaural processing, but soon!

Yes! All headphone models have been improved, and now the 770's are DEAD on!

Check the intro screen of the plugin for some tips!

Working on it! To get them within the 1db spec that was required has been challenging but we did it!

I'll look into some of the white papers but the issue is that the current noise cancelling tech seems like it would interfere with dynamics.

Tuff choice between Archon and Stevens room now  

Well done Steven and the guys.
Archon and Steven room are very complimentary too!
