Nuendo 7, the latest version of Steinberg’s industry-leading post-production software, makes its European debut at ProLight+Sound 2015, with brand new, unique features for the rapidly growing game audio sector complemented by enhanced facilities for the post-production industry.

First showcased at San Francisco’s Game Developers Conference in February, Nuendo 7 introduces further features for TV and film post-production, many as a result of user requests, while newly tailored tools for the game production industry mean that Nuendo’s innovative, flexible solutions are the most advanced on the market.

A leading new feature for the gaming industry is Game Audio Connect, which allows easy and fast transfer of audio assets from Nuendo 7 to Audiokinetic’s Wwise interactive sound engine, saving literally hours of manual import/export and file location work. This is complemented by long-requested Render In Place and Render Export functions – the former allowing for rendering a free selection of audio files to a new audio track, while the latter allows the user to quickly export a free selection of audio files to a disk destination, with many individual options for naming conventions and meta data.

Saving a great deal of manual re-editing, a requested feature is ReConforming. This integrated facility allows for automatic re-editing of audio projects according to picture changes. Based on automatic comparison of EDL lists, it enables detailed EDL adaptations according to individual needs, with a preview of the expected reconformed result.

Enhancements for post-production projects include new VCA fader functions tailored to audio post-production workflows. These include VCA fader automation using Nuendo routing operation pattern, independently from linked groups, a Suspend mode and Coalescing, which supports the merge of VCA fader automation with channel-based automation.

Meanwhile, new editing enhancements include 50fps support and new timecode entering scheme, meta data information shown in the infoline/audio events header and automation which follows trimming, preventing spikes and eliminating redundant automation points.

Other new features of Nuendo 7 to assist with day-to-day workflow include an updated user interface, with a new workspace organiser for free window placement on any display, a redesigned Track List and Inspector for better readability and a new Rack Zone to the right side of the Project window.

Also provided are a number of new and updated plug-ins, as well as a new plug-in manager which allows users to arrange, sort and group effects/instruments and create plug-in subsets. Meanwhile, faster, simpler handling of content is facilitated by audio track import from other Nuendo projects from within an opened Nuendo project, while improved performance through ASIO-Guard 2 technology delivers vastly improved project loading times and advanced automatic latency management, even on CPU-demanding projects.

With updated support for Yamaha’s Nuage integrated audio production system* and enhanced integration with EuCon-based consoles, Nuendo 7 ensures that Steinberg stays ahead of the pack in unique, innovative solutions for the audio post-production, ADR and gaming industries.

Nuendo 7 will be available Summer 2015.

Yamaha is exhibiting on Stand F50, Hall 8.0 at ProLight+Sound 2015, which takes place from 15th-18th April at Frankfurt Messe.
