The next version of Steinberg's flagship post-production audio software tool Nuendo 6 is available now, and hosts some extremely functional upgrades. Nuendo empowers audio professionals working for the film, television and media industry to higher levels of productivity, with a dedicated feature set that focuses on day-to-day production requirements like workflow, speed, versatility and reliability. Post-production editors, film mixers as well as recording engineers around the world rely on the flexibility and industry openness that Nuendo provides.
Advanced mixing console
Nuendo 6 sets new standards in mixing. The new mixing surface of Nuendo 6 provides instant access to all vital functions of the mixer thanks to a sleek single-window concept and allows for a multitude of visibility configurations and drag-and-drop functions for faster operation. Other major improvements include the intuitive Quick Link system and Control Link groups to temporarily or permanently link entire channels or only specific parameters. The all-new View Sets store and recall any channel configuration as preset. Each of the up to four different MixConsoles comes with its own channel visibility management, allowing you to define which channels you want to see and how they are arranged.
Time-savers for professionals
Nowadays the number of plug-ins can easily exceed 100, as Nuendo 6 already provides more than 70 high quality effects. The new mixing console provides fast access to the ever growing list of plug-ins and channels by incorporating an efficient search function. Plus, Nuendo only displays the number of insert slots used, which makes operation more focused on the essential functions. Voice, foley and music recordists will be happy to hear that we have also overhauled the Control Room, which is now nicely integrated.
Nuendo 6 Channel Strip
The brand-new channel strip in Nuendo 6 offers several high-quality effects that turns your voice recordings, music and sound effects into a warm and expressive sound with richly nuanced dynamics. From a complete set of high- and low-pass filters plus noise gate with sidechain support, over to different compressor types and a brickwall limiter — the new channel strip takes your mix to a whole new level. At the same time, the Channel Strip is highly configurable. All modules can be rearranged through drag-and-drop in case a different processing chain is needed. All faders can be used in pre or post mode related to the insert FX rack.
Lightning-fast parameter access
With the new Channel Settings window you can access all relevant channel parameters faster and more convenient than ever before. This central channel area gives you fast access to all channel parameters, including metering, routing assignments, EQ, dynamics, sends, cues and others. Next to the sophisticated signal metering the new Channel Strip is displayed with StudioEQ with an integrated spectrum analyzer, a complete dynamics section with different modes, a virtual analog tube saturation preamp stage, essential aux and cue sends.
With the versatile 64-band CurveEQ you can simply transfer the sound characteristics of an audio track to another. Whether you're working on TV series with recurring sound elements or voice recordings that need to be adapted to each other — CurveEQ’s professional-grade spectrum analyzer allows you to display, save and load static spectrum plots for comparison and matching purposes. You can compare different EQ curves, copy them between different tracks and choose the right combination via A/B comparison capabilities.
MixConvert V6 — downmixing better than ever
Due to its unmatched downmixing quality, MixConvert has gained amazing recognition in former versions of Nuendo. MixConvert V6 goes further and enables you to realize configurations of up to 10.2 surround. Take control over LFE, center and surround level. Select different output speaker arrangements such as the industry-standard formats 5.1 or 7.1. The solo/mute function is available for specific channels and thus allows for an individual downmix.
Anymix Pro 1.3 by IOSONO
The revolutionary panning functions of Anymix Pro 1.3 by IOSONO enable you to create surround mixes that stand apart from the competition. Anymix Pro includes distant-dependent loudness and EQ settings that are automatically adjusted when the signal is moved within the listening space. Thus, all natural changes in loudness and timbre are perfectly reproduced — without the need for EQ or volume automation.
At the same time Anymix Pro includes high-quality upmix functions that allow you to upmix to 8.1 without compromises in quality. You cannot only seamlessly scale the presence of the original audio material in the upmixed signal, but also determine how much of the direct signal and the ambience of the original source will pass through the surround mix.
Complete voice recording solution
Enhance your productivity and workflow with the all-new ADR Taker System. Nuendo 6 provides a fully equipped solution for ADR & language dubbing, making recording of voices efficient and convenient.
Nuendo 6 facilitates the process of dialog recordings by offering several video count-in techniques, such as swipe and countdown, assuring everything is being recorded to the point. Thanks to the ability of importing take lists into marker/cue lists, the dialog can overlay the picture, directly within Nuendo 6. This not only speeds up voice recordings and offers the artist more freedom to perform — it also enhances the quality of your work and saves time and money.
MemZap teleports you throughout the project
These days’ projects can easily contain hundreds of tracks, dozens of plug-ins and a multitude of automation curves. Jumping to different working areas within a project is one of those things that cost a lot of expensive production time. That’s why we have developed MemZap — store exact positions and even zoom factors within the project and jump to them quickly by defining individual key commands.
Global collaboration with VST Connect SE
Steinberg's VST Connect SE technology allows other musicians connect directly to Nuendo users, giving you the freedom to collaborate and produce together, even when you’re not in the same studio, town or country. Talkback and chat functions as well as video and audio stream in real time give you limitless possibilities.
Remote Control Editor
The Remote Control Editor lets you visually customize the parameter layout of individual effects and instruments on your control surface. By selecting a hardware knob, fader or button on your control surface you can easily determine which parameter should be controlled within the software.
Steinberg recommends HP computers
Nuendo 6 is quality-tested with HP's professional Z-series workstation computers, guaranteeing highest performance and maximum reliability packed in a rock-solid chassis. Be it the industry-proven Intel XEON processors or the ultra-fast SSD drives — HP Z-machines make the best out of Nuendo and speed up your whole studio software environment.
