The Advanced 3D Sound Technology - Nahimic 3 Introduction

After successful years of partnership, MSI and Nahimic are delighted to pursue the cooperation. For the new generation of gaming laptops, it’s pleased to designed together with MSI’s engineer and bring the new Nahimic 3 to the market.
 


Nahimic 3 is the ultimate audio software dedicated to gamers. In addition its highly immersive and high quality sound, the engineer have upgraded Nahimic with totally new features and new outer appearance to make it more geared towards gamers than ever. The main updated points are as below:


1.The all new advanced powerful 3D audio engine which gives you the optimum experience in every situation


2.With the extended devices compatibility, Nahimic 3 allows you to play on your favorite peripherals, including Analog, USB, Bluetooth, HDMI, no matter the technology you can always enjoy Nahimic 3.



3.The engineer work a lot to build a new interface to response the community for their needs. It’s fast, intuitive and easy to use for every gamers. The long awaited automatic software update is now implemented inside.


4.The new Sound Tracker gives gamer the advantage on the battlefield. It’s more accurate and more reactive and shows you where all the relevant sounds are coming in your games.
 

The first step to enjoy Nahimic 3 is to plug-in your devices and select the correct output, this added-in feature will help you optimize your peripherals at their best.



Audio-
The interface has been rethought and improved by UX and UI experts. Sized for the new Windows architecture(UWP), the main tabs are now in a vertical lateral bar for easier access.
 
The Surround Sound, the most important feature, now has the bigger place that it deserves in the interface in order to be quickly understood by everyone. A Try button will provide the users to immediately understand those incredible result. The Volume Stabilizer is now equipped with a Night Mode to let you enjoy the best without disturbing people around you. The main frequencies are now divided in 3 sections, Bass, Voices and Treble. The new feature allows you to go +12 dB to -12 dB and lets you customize your own preference.



Microphone-
After improving the Algorithm, a even more clearer sound without interference noise like fans has been delivered. The Mic effects have been totally redesigned to be more simple and understandable by users. The Microphone tab is more intuitive, the microphone boost could be set within the interface and optimized by user’s settings. The Static Noise Suppression removes the noises due to electromagnetic interferences to be as clear as possible. The Echo Cancellation blocks the sound made by other audio devices and prevents the Larsen effect. The Lateral Sound cancellation creates a small unidirectional sensitivity, to capture user’s voice and only user’s voice. It helps to deliver more clear voice from the user himself. The Voice Stabilizer regulates the gap of user’s voice’s variations to be heard clearly by teammates or the people whom are talking to. All the features above are very important for online gamers especially they need to communicate with people who play together.



Sound Tracker-
While this function been launched, it’s always been most welcomed by FPS or Action game players. Being redesigned and improved, more accurate and customizable, the new Sound Tracker displays multiple sectors at the same time. It locates for users the origin of various relevant sounds on the battlefield, which means it helps to kill more enemies from different directions especially in zombie mode. A new amazing Sound Demo has been created to show the Sound Tracker in action.

Then let’s see the simple comparison with the other sound effect in the market and see what the benefits are by Nahimic.
 





The algorithm of 3D sound is the unique weapon for Nahimic, that’s why it easily support customization for virtual surround in treble and bass level. The crystal clear voice communication is also well-known technology of it which helps better communication during online competition. The sound tracker is another exclusive tool for basic training while gamers are not familiar with the game scenario. With all these new features, Nahimic 3 reveals itself as the most immersive and powerful solution for gamers and everyone. We won’t have the best immersive sound experience until Nahimic 3 delivered to the world.

Greetings,

The claim in the OP of being "the best" is pure rubbish!!! Nahimic is NOT "the best immersive sound experience ... delivered to the world". And to make such a claim is idiotic.

Here's the truth:

If you truly want the best immersive sound for gaming, you need an accurate surround sound speaker system that will allow you to hear the sounds where the sound engineers of the game intend you to hear them. The system will need low distortion and high dynamic range. This will require the following:

1 - A quiet environment with good acoustics.
2 - A true surround sound speaker system that works with the surround sound technology supported by the game. A surround sound emulator is bad because it will be inaccurate.
3 - The speakers and amplifiers in the system must have adequate dynamic range for the sound track of the game.
4 - The fidelity of the speakers and amplifiers must be good (which means the distortion must be low).

That's what it takes to achieve the "best in the world". You will never achieve it with headphones and you will never achieve it with surround sound emulators---you need real surround sound or else the location of the sounds will not be accurate. And, even if you have true surround sound driving your headphones, it is impossible to localize sound accurately with any headphones on the market today. It can only be done with speakers in a good acoustic environment.

As for Nahimic (any version), it adds too much distortion to the sound---both in the frequency domain (amplitude) and the time domain (phase). And, it's surround sound emulator for non-surround playback systems (like headphones and stereo speakers) is poor compared to the audio industry's gold standard (Dolby Digital Live by Dolby Labs).

MSI and its minions should be ashamed of themselves for claiming Nahimic is the best. It's nothing but a poor bandaid for headphones or poor-quality speakers. And Nahimic is the primary reason why the sound quality in MSI gaming notebooks has become so bad.

The new UI seems sleeker than the previous version. 
Is the "Launch Pad" function removed in this version?:-((
I thought MSI and Nahimic should focus on what gamers are interested in?

I think you are right on expert side with external speakers and AMPs, but you take it too seriously on notebooks platform, I think MSI already did great job on their speakers design, especially on GT and GE series already much better than other competitor's top level notebooks. The Nahimic 3 might not be the best software for surround Sound simulation, but still a plus for the gaming notebooks for normal users.

It's a real benefit to have that kind of sound quality and function on a laptop!
