Steinberg today announced the upcoming availability of Nuendo 10 at the GDC Expo in San Francisco.
Showcased for the first time at the GDC Expo this week, Nuendo 10 is the culmination of years of experience at Steinberg, also including the implementation of numerous user requests related to audio post-production and game audio design. Together with its many enhancements and the musical features previously introduced in Cubase, this version solidifies Nuendo as an advanced media production system.
To expedite post-production workflow, Nuendo 10 now includes Video Cut Detection for analyzing videos for edits and setting markers automatically. Field Recorder Audio Import allows users to search field recorder audio files and match these with a project's events using available attributes or metadata.
Nuendo 10 offers powerful creative tools designed specifically for sound designers. Included is a brand-new Doppler effect that virtually simulates the changing perception of a sound as its source passes. Among many other new and redesigned plug-ins, the VoiceDesigner is the ideal tool for modifying voices, with parameters such as Detune, Formant, Preserve (for pitch shifting while preserving formants), Robot, Morph and FX.
With Nuendo 10, productivity is now even more efficient, allowing ADM files to be directly imported into a new or existing project. New video rendering capabilities, Cue Sheet Export and ARA support will also be introduced in a later update. Further functionality to Direct Offline Processing has been added, such as quick easy drag-and-drop of insert plug-ins into the process and a loudness normalizer.
Other technological highlights in Nuendo 10 are the support of the dearVR Spatial Connect 3D audio production tool for mixing within the VR world as well as further advances with the AmbiDecoder to create an immersive experience.
These considerable feature additions are rounded out by including the many musical features new to Cubase 10 and many other small workflow and performance improvements.
Head of the Pro Audio Team Timo Wildenhain commented: "Consider Nuendo 10 a milestone release: it's a very special version with many special enhancements and additions. To celebrate this distinction, we are dramatically reducing the price for full and update licenses of Nuendo 10 to give back to the many professionals who already benefit from Nuendo and those who are toying with the idea to switch. Basically, everyone needs to understand why we believe that Nuendo 10 is the most cutting-edge digital audio workstation today."
