Steinberg Nuendo 8

Steinberg Nuendo 8 gives you a powerful and advanced post-production system. Providing a number of unique features for game audio production, TV and film post-production and ADR workflows.

Ranging from creative tools for sound designers through to a highly flexible direct offline processing system.

Above all, Nuendo 8 truly is the new standard for audio-to-picture work.

Game sound composing & production

Nuendo 7 established a new milestone in game audio production with the introduction of Game Audio Connect that first enabled transferring audio files to Wwise. Now, Nuendo 8 takes things a huge step forward. Game Audio Connect 2 allows you to transfer interactive sections of your compositions from Nuendo as music segments into Wwise, including audio and MIDI tracks as well as cycle and cue markers, opening up a whole new dimension for game sound composing. Plus, you can now create Nuendo projects directly from Wwise segments, effectively allowing you to use Nuendo as a MIDI editor for Wwise.

Direct offline processing

Nuendo 8 brings the offline processing workflow to a higher level. The new direct offline processing allows you to apply your most often used processes and plug-ins as a chain for one or multiple selected clips. Auto Apply lets you use offline processing with the feel of real-time effects, but without the CPU load — keeping your MixConsole clean for the mixing stage. You can copy your process chain to other clips or save it as a preset to use it in other projects. The list of processes is always available for each clip, allowing for later non-destructive changes. Any change will be applied to all selected clips.

Creative sound design on a higher level

Time is a precious commodity. That’s why Nuendo is there to do the tedious work for you — automatically. Instead of duplicating and altering thousands of sounds manually, the new Sound Randomizer creates different variations of a sound simply by adjusting four parameters. The plug-in changes pitch, color, timing and impact of an audio clip creating completely new sounds and saving you loads of hours of repetitive work.

MixConsole History

Ever wanted to compare different mixes with just one mouse click? Allow us to introduce you to MixConsole History. It’s a great new feature that tracks all changes made in the MixConsole and easily lets you choose several stages of your mixing process just by selecting them from a list. This means you’ll be getting your basic mixer undo/redo, but it also allows you to experiment freely with which mix suits your project best.
