Mildon Studios has released R23, a reference monitor effect plug-in for Windows.

R23 Reference Monitor simulates speaker cross-feed, room absorption, and room reflection so you can listen to your mix in a studio environment using your headphones. Professional, flat-response headphones are recommended.

This plugin is based on the HC38 Headphone Calibrator, with an improved response and a simplified graphic interface. No more calibration; Just plug it in and you’re good to go.

R23 Reference Monitor features

  • Speaker Separation Control (1′ to 8′).
  • Room Treatment Control (amount of absorption/reflection).
  • Bypass Switches (located at the left of the faders).

The R23 is available to purchase for the introductory price of $14 USD until August 20th, 2012 (regular $29 USD).
