Germany – With Steinberg Nuendo software being a fundamental part of many post-production facilities, accessing its array of tools in a fast, natural way helps them to satisfy the ever-shortening timescales that clients demand. Germany’s MWA Sound has chosen Yamaha’s Nuage system to harness Nuendo as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Located in Soltau, midway between the cities of Hamburg and Hannover, MWA Sound was founded by studio recording veteran Michael Andreas in 2010. Offering sound-to-picture services including film sound, post production, sound design and dubbing, the company is also active in the live audio market.

MWA has worked on a wide range of projects including in cinema and DVD, Das Kleine Arschloch, Fleisch ist mein Gemüse, The Night Watchmen, Kurt Cobain – Tod einer Ikone, The Eichmann Show and Berlin 36. Television work has included Der Tatortreiniger, Tatort, Der Kommissar und das Meer, Traumschiff, Forsthaus Falkenau, Der Bergdoktor, SOKO Wismar and more.

MWA is a long-time user of Steinberg Nuendo DAW software and of Yamaha mixing consoles in its live business, so it was natural that the two technologies would come together in MWA’s latest investment, a Nuage post-production system.

“We have been using Nuendo since Version 3 in 2005,” says Michael. “It’s a very flexible tool and we like the fact that its ongoing development has always focused on including new and more efficient workflows, such as those for ADR. The technical support is also excellent, with a very personal touch.”

Seamless integration between hardware and software is a key factor in maintaining a fast, efficient workflow in sound-to-picture work. Comprising a Nuage Master and Nuage Fader unit, adding the system has helped Michael and fellow sound designer Bernd Schaumburg to make the most of Nuendo, with the intuitive control surface allowing them to concentrate exclusively on their work, not the technology.

“Thanks to our long-term success with Nuendo, investing in a Nuage system was an obvious next step to help maximise our efficiency,” says Michael. “All of the hardware features are great, and we particularly like the user-assignable buttons. It has allowed us to access all the features on Nuendo that much more quickly and easily, simplifying the process and reducing the time we spend on projects.

“Overall it has substantially added to our success as a studio.”
