Steinberg has released the second update for its Nuendo 5 post, live and audio production solution. The Nuendo 5.1 update adds MXF Audio support, as well as several stability and performance improvements, focusing on the AAF import/export, the editing functions, the video engine and the MediaBay.
The support of MXF Audio further extends Nuendo's compatibility to industry standards, making the exchange of audio data much faster than before.
