The Next Evolution of Steinberg’s Powerful Post-production DAW
Post-production professionals worldwide rely on Steinberg's Nuendo — it's used in television, movies, game audio design, and more. Now at version 10, Nuendo comes loaded with more innovations than ever, and you'll see this in every aspect of your audio-for-picture work. Nuendo includes unique features for game audio production as well as traditional film and TV post. From integration with game middleware, to automatic picture-edit re-conforming, to ADR, Nuendo gives you powerful, dedicated tools that streamline your workflow and ensure that you deliver the highest-quality product.
A bevy of oft-requested new features
Steinberg packed Nuendo 10 with a bevy of oft-requested new features. Field Recorder Audio Import enables searching and matching field recorder audio files to selected events in your project. Video Cut Detection analyzes video files for edits and inserts markers for each cut. Simulate the movement, distance, and perception of a passing sound source with Nuendo 10’s Doppler effect. Modify voices and craft otherworldly sound effects with VoiceDesigner. Create and mix immersive 3D audio content directly in the VR environment, thanks to dearVR Spatial Connect integration. Beyond that, music features like VariAudio 3, Distroyer effect, MixConsole Snapshots, and Groove Agent SE 5 are sure to spark your creativity. You also get support for Adobe’s ADM files, along with ARA support, new features for Direct Offline Processing, new modes for the AmbiDecoder, an Audio Alignment panel, high-DPI support, a reworked channel strip, updated user interface, and more.
And with Nuendo 10.1 (a FREE upcoming update), you get video rendering for exporting a video file, or a section of a project including audio and video, along with Cue Sheet Export for creating a report of all music pieces, or all VO clips of a narrator, used in your project.
Ultra-advanced mixing console optimized for post
Nuendo ups the ante for what a post-optimized mixing console should be. With its sleek single-window concept, Nuendo's mixing surface gives you up to 22.2 support with instant access to all vital functions, plus a plethora of visibility configurations and drag-and-drop functionality for lightning-fast operation. An intuitive Quick Link system and Control Link groups temporarily or permanently link entire channels — or just specific parameters. View Sets store and recall any channel configuration as a preset. You get up to four different MixConsoles, and each one comes with its own channel visibility management, so you can define which channels you want to see, as well as how they’re arranged.
VCA faders and feature-packed Channel Strip EQ
Steinberg Nuendo's VCA fader technology creates a second mixing layer within the Nuendo’s MixConsole. VCA faders in Nuendo not only help you create complex mixes for film and television projects, they also give you the option of more advanced automation workflows using the Combine VCA fader automation feature. Simply merge the automation curve of a VCA fader with the automation curve of a controlled fader or fader group. Nuendo's channel strip EQ module gives you additional mouse-over value readouts for gain, frequency, and its equivalent in note pitch, so you can enter pitch notes or cent values for each band, instead of Hz. The Pre section offers selectable slopes of 6, 12 (default), 24, 36, and 48 for high and low cut, making it easier than ever to sculpt your dialog, music, and FX to perfection.
Smooth re-conforming for film and TV post
Film and TV editors here at Sweetwater are sadly familiar with this: your project and all its audio files perfectly match the picture, but then the video editor sends you a new picture cut. ReConform to the rescue! Nuendo's re-conforming algorithm detects picture changes on the basis of EDL (Edit Decision List) comparisons of previous and new EDLs. This generates a change list which is used to execute a re-conform. Not to worry, though. Before the process even begins, Nuendo gives you a preview of the anticipated result. You also get several options for the re-conform process, including the handling of gaps, several processing and marker placement options, and even a choice of different matching algorithms.
Nuendo takes the pain out of ADR
ADR — automated dialog replacement — can be a pain. Dealing with the talent, as well as a myriad of cue points, tracks, and record-ons and -offs, can take its toll on your project schedule — and your patience. Luckily, Steinberg's Nuendo sports a complete
Integration with Audiokinetic Wwise middleware
Rather than saving your audio assets one-by-one on a hard drive and arduously importing them into Wwise at a later time, Nuendo saves you hours upon hours of tedious labor. Via Game Audio Connect, you just drag-and-drop audio files (including your custom naming conventions like project name, folder path, and track name) to Wwise. This sidesteps time-gobbling minutiae such as manually configuring your import and export dialogs. You save invaluable production time, even when round-tripping an audio asset in Wwise back to its respective Nuendo project, by simply recalling the original Nuendo project from that audio file.
