Steinberg Premiers Nuendo 5
Steinberg has premiered Nuendo 5, a new production environment tailored to production studios in post production, live recording and audio production. The new features include an ADR toolset, new sound design features such as the unique Clip Packages system, new plug-ins as well as a range of mixing, routing and automation enhancements.
A new ADR toolset engineered for audio post, providing new capabilities for spotting including advanced take- and marker handling, EDL import, a new video engine and much more is one of the major new features in Nuendo. Clip Packages have been designed specifically for sound editors as a new way of organizing and handling audio as clusters of files across multiple tracks that can be archived, previewed and retrieved almost instantly using the upgraded Nuendo 5 MediaBay.
Enhanced mixing features in Nuendo 5 include further developments on the Nuendo automation system as well as direct routing with multiple destinations. A new plug-in set with the Surround Panner and a surround bus Patch Editor further add to the advanced feature set for surround. Numerous other additions in Nuendo 5 include a waveform display in the Nuendo mixer, improved compatibility with Pro Tools audio files and automated Batch Export functions.
Nuendo 5 also integrates seamlessly with Steinberg’s Nuendo SyncStation synchronizer hardware, providing accurate sync in almost any situation requiring solid sync to almost any modern sync standard. Nuendo 5 also features complete support for a range of controller devices such as Euphonix, WK Audio and the Smart AV Tango. Steinberg will be showcasing the upgrade during their 19-date Nuendo 5 World Tour that is currently taking place across 14 countries.
Steinberg’s Nuendo 5 for Mac OS X 10.5 / 10.6 and Windows 7, Vista & XP will be available sometime next month for $1999 / €1799. More information on Steinberg Nuendo 5.
