Steinberg's Nuendo is a high-end digital audio
workstation developed specifically for the demands of
modern multimedia productions. Regardless of whether you are
working on music or post production project, in
broadcasting or video - Nuendo offers a solution which
will perform to the highest expectations. Nuendo does
this more cost-effectively than other systems.
All recording, editing and mixing functions were
developed from scratch, allowing Nuendo to offer the most
advanced studio technology. Nuendo's extensive interface,
import and export functions guarantee perfect integration
into every studio environment. As a cross-platform native
system, you can adapt the Nuendo environment to suit the
nature of the project you are currently working on.
Nuendo was created to perform any task within
the media industry. The new Nuendo 2.0 version delivers a
complete media production system, designed with the needs of
the user in mind and meeting the demands of working
professionals in all genres of audio production: composition,
film, broadcast, music, post production, surround, game sound
Nuendo 2.0 is the culmination of years of expert
engineering research and has been developed to take the
advantages of flexible, native systems to a new level of
versatility. We believe that Nuendo 2.0 is the pinnacle of
professional media production, offering you not just
outstanding performance but the ergonomics and adaptiveness
to channel that performance more effectively and creatively.
Nuendo 2.0 Feature Highlights:
Offline processing in Nuendo has always been
without compromises. It is easy to handle, very fast and
provides the extremely useful offline process history
enabling you to undo, replace or modify all the processes
previously applied to the audio events, even after closing
the project. And Nuendo 2.0 still goes another step further.
All generated Offline Process lists can be saved as a batch
so you can later recall them and use the same kind of
processing over and over with a single key command and across
all your projects. Simply define "tried and tested" groups of
processes as a batch and your events and clips can be
processed with virtually unlimited processes in no time.
Nuendo 2.0 offers you the option to hide menu entries
that are either generally or temporarily not needed. The
configuration menu in the preferences is very easy to use
and allows you to hide entire menus including all submenus
or even each menu entry individually. These settings
naturally also affect the context menus, speeding up your
workflow in Nuendo 2.0 immensely. Sometimes less really
is more. And because the program settings in Nuendo 2.0 are
savable, presets for certain projects or work stages can
be constructed and stored. Important presets such as "No
MIDI", "No Network Functionality" or "No Video" are provided.
Nuendo 2.0 offers you the ability to easily exchange
selected tracks and the media data contained in them with
other Nuendo workstations. You can select and export one or
several audio, MIDI or video tracks. This procedure
creates a single track archive file and a linked folder
that contains the required audio, MIDI and video files.
When this track archive file is imported, the appropriate
tracks automatically sort themselves into the Nuendo
project. All respective mixer channel parameters are, of
course, also transferred, and are then identical to the
settings on the source Nuendo system. This lets different
studios and their editors work together on one project, and
effortlessly exchange, edit and merge their work.
Nuendo 2.0 enables you to use multiple timelines
simultaneously anywhere in between your regular tracks. For
example, you can work not only with an SMPTE timeline, but
also have a timeline in hh:mm:ss format visible in case you
are working with drop frame rates, and a 35 mm feet & frames
ruler track to display feet positions if needed. If you are
editing dialog and music at the same time, you can use
an SMPTE timeline for the dialogue as well as a bars &
beats ruler, floating just above your music tracks. If you
are editing to sample accuracy, let an additional sample
timeline assist you.
Nuendo 2.0 allows the storing and loading of user
preference sets. This allows you to not only recall
different system settings for various working situations
but also take your preferred settings with you and apply
them to another system when you are working on a Nuendo
system at another location.
Multiple Record Destinations
You can define different record file destinations
in Nuendo 2.0. This allows you to either sort various types of
recordings in dedicated folders or change to another hard
drive when the current hard drive starts getting full.
This way, you can organize your recordings and don't have
to worry about data throughput and storage space of your hard
Nuendo 2.0 includes an option to automatically begin
recording as soon as a valid incoming timecode signal is
present. Not only is syncing to audio recording during
video capture a breeze, so too is recording in sync with
or from tape-based multitracks or VTRs. Another advantage
is that you no longer have to manually take Nuendo out of
Record mode when your source tape stops, as Nuendo performs
this automatically for you, as soon as the time-code signal
is discontinued. The most practical side is that the recorded
files automatically become the correct timestamp when
recording in Broadcast Wave format.
