Producer Giles Martin on the Waves Abbey Road Studio 3 Plugin
"The Abbey Road Studio 3 plugin is extraordinary. For the first time on headphones, you can feel the field of speakers in front of you and around you. As a bonus, it really sounds like Abbey Road Studio Three, which is absolutely amazing."

“The center image is the thing to crack on headphones—and that’s what this plugin does amazingly well for me. I sat down at the Studio Three control room, switching between the speakers in the room and the plugin on headphones, and I was surprised at how good the plugin was. It opens a new way for mixing on headphones.”
(The Beatles, Rocketman)
Stellar Acoustics Recreated on HeadphonesThe Waves Abbey Road Studio 3 plugin is based on precision 360° impulse response measurements of the Studio Three control room, combined with Waves’ pioneering Nx technology for immersive spatial audio.
The plugin recreates in glorious three-dimensional sound over any set of headphones, the same stellar audio qualities that make Studio Three the perfect acoustic environment for music mixing and production. The Abbey Road Studio 3 plugin also delivers full 7.1 and 5.1 surround sound, modeled after the studio’s original surround setup. You can work professionally on surround mixes — using any stereo headphones.
