    Thank you for making this available for free. I am currently in the process of trying it out. However a significant portion of my music listening comes from iTunes/Apple Music. Is this plugin compatible with iTunes? Actually, a better question to ask would be, is there a way to make the plugin system wide in Mac OSX, as in Windows using the jRiver virtual driver?

    One more question, are these DSP presets coming to the cipher platform, where such improvements were promised at the beginning? At present, the only feature available in the cipher app is the eq.

    Thes links may be of help to you:

    I am not sure if I understand you. The plugin is designed to work with a specific Audeze headphone. The Cipher cable already comes with a default tuning. The plugin's purpose is not to emulate different headphones.

    Thanks for the links.

    Forgive me for the misunderstanding. I thought the reveal plugin was also providing some cross-feed like DSP since the webpage mentioned "room-sound" calibration. I now understand (if I am correct), it simply refers to readjusting the frequency distribution to capture room acoustics.
  4. KMann
    Yes you are right there is no cross-feed involved. Reveal is meant to provide a frequency response similar to a pair of monitors in a well treated room, but there is no reverberation/reflections or crossfeed added.

    The plugin is very interesting, many thanks for making it free and available for everyone. And not only with your products, but with others too. For example I've had exceptional results with HD800 on LCD-2 or MX4 presets due to less exaggerated 6 kHz peak. I've noticed it after my LCD-2 measurements before and after DSP activation:


    I've described my impressions in this article:
    (original - polish):
    (google translated - english):

    So far, I've had only few quirks with Reveal under Foobar2000 (+ VST adapter 2.4):
    - plugin can't remember selected headphones after computer restart.
    - when trying to save preset in right docker, whole Foobar2000 is not responding with high CPU utilisation,
    - one random application crash right after deselecting Reveal in Foobar's DSP Manager during music playback.

    I wish the Reveal was available for mobile platforms or the Audeze cipher app worked for all DACs from iOS devices, not just the cipher cable, but that is too far fetched.

    Sorry to come up to you Audeze Folks with this noob question, but what does "DRY" or "WET" supposed to be or mean? I'm currently using your plug-in with JRiver 23 and my Audeze LCD-Xs.

    Thanks in advance :)

    WET / DRY percent means the amount of the altered signal that is mixed in.

    So 50% wet = half original signal, half EQ'd signal. 100% wet = all EQ'd. Etc.

    Now that you mention it, it is weird to refer to a filtered signal as "wet" vs. "dry". But, that's the convention for pretty much all audio hardware out there.

    These plug ins always give me trouble. First of all, no where on the Audeze page does it say you need some sort of VST for Foobar so I tried several times to extract it to the "components" but it never showed up. Then, after reading and searching, I found that George Yohng one and installed it (hopefully under DSP manager is where it's supposed to be because that's where it is. So I tried to re-extract the Audeze thing, and it still doesn't show up anywhere. What am I missing?

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not at all blaming Audeze for my issues, it's just frustrating when I follow the steps outlined and things don't go as it seems they should. I guess someone could add the bit about a VST being required, but that's a minor point.
  12. sup27606
    I followed KMann's suggestion and installed menubus on the mac, and that worked with the reveal plugin. I compared with and without the plugin on the EL-8O, and the differences were subtle (which is a good thing). Still more listening to be done, but so far the most noticeable improvement is a slightly fuller sound and increased weight in male voices. However I am sad that I use a RPI 3 running volumio as my source and this plugin obviously doesn't work in any linux distro.

    FWIW, I'm using it with Audirvana as noted a few previous posts ago...simply flawless for me.

    After installing the George Yohng VST wrapper, try this:

    In the Preferences window, there should be an option for “Components”
    Click it and select VST Plug Ins. Click the “Add” button
    Find the Reveal Plugin that was extracted when the Audeze install was executed. The default location is c:\program files (x86)\steinberg\vstplugins\reveal
    The Reveal plugin should now show in DSP Manager

    When I get to the end I get this message:

    Could not load VST DLL. You may have tried to use x64 DLL or there is an internal error in the plug-in.
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Audeze\Reveal.dll

    There's only 1 file to choose and that's the one listed above.
