When it comes to audio post production, Steinberg Nuendo 7 rules. With each new release, Nuendo raises the bar for dedicated audio-post software - and you'll see this in every aspect of your audio-for-picture work with Nuendo 7. Nuendo 7 innovations include 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, Steinberg Nuendo 7 gives you powerful, dedicated tools that streamline your workflow and ensure that you deliver the highest-quality product.
Packed with killer instruments and effects
Steinberg Nuendo 7 is loaded with a powerful arsenal of instruments and effects that gives you the creative edge when you've got a massive project with a suffocating deadline. From HALion Sonic SE 2 (a streamlined version of Steinberg's acclaimed sample player/synth) and the Padshop granular synthesis engine to the Multiband Expander, Multiband Envelope Shaper, VST Bass Amp, Quadrafuzz v2 - and more, Nuendo 7 arms you with the tools you need for creative post production.
Ultra-advanced mixing console optimized for post
Steinberg Nuendo 7 ups the ante for what a post-optimized mixing console should be. With its sleek single-window concept, Nuendo 7's mixing surface gives you instant access to all vital functions and delivers a plethora of visibility configurations and drag-and-drop functionality for lightening-fast operation. An intuitive Quick Link system and Control Link groups let you temporarily or permanently link entire channels - or just specific parameters. The View Sets function lets you 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, letting you define which channels you want to see - and how they'e arranged.
VCA faders and improved Channel Strip EQ
Steinberg Nuendo 7's VCA fader technology lets you create a second mixing "layer" within the Nuendo MixConsole. VCA faders in Nuendo 7 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 7'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
ReConform to the rescue! Nuendo 7'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 7 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 7 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 7 sports a complete ADR system that makes short work of all of the above. If you've used other ADR systems, you'll be amazed at how streamlined and easy Nuendo 7 makes the ADR process - and it's also a fast, flexible tool for managing Foley sessions.
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, Steinberg Nuendo 7 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 lets you sidestep 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.
