Steinberg Nuendo Area

Post by Nick Sevilla » Wed Jul 22, 2020 4:33 pm

Hi,

I just upgraded my ancient Nuendo 1.52 to 10.3. Only took 12 years LOL.

So, this thread will be about this DAW.

Anyone here using this???

Curious what prompted the update. I recently fired up my Nuendo 2.0.2 to convert some old ~2003-era sessions to PT. I even thought to myself how completely ahead of its time Nuendo was, but I can’t envision myself switching out of my current Logic/PT paradigm to use a different DAW in the future.

If you start to find any really compelling reasons why someone would use this, these days (over any more-prevalent DAWs), I’d be really intrigued.

I found it is easier than other DAWs, FOR ME...

Since I am a PT guy, Nuendo feels familiar already. I had used it back in 2008-2009 to do surround TV mixing, and found it really useful then. It is super fast on audio edits, having a combo tool easier than the PT combo tool.

I am just so tired of the Avid nonsense, as many are. And I am not upgrading my TDM rig anymore. Too expensive to jump to any newer version/

Nuendo has even more features and is more stable than PT HD. A few friends have been using it for years, and live in LA, so they know the workflow between them and PT really well. One does music for film mainly, did a lot of the incidental (fiddle) stuff on all the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, the other is Chuck Ainlay, who engineered almost all of Mark Knopfler's solo albums, which I love the sound of.

It so far has proven more stable than my PT 2019.12, on the same laptop, same interface. LOL.

I used to love Logic Pro, but when Apple took it over and made it look like Garageband, and removed the easy way to access the advanced functions I was used to using., like the environment (it is still there but a PITFA to get to), I just lost interest. I do love their Space Designer delay and reverb, use them from time to time, off another computer, as effects only.

Been using it for a week or so. More stable than PT, for sure.

The latency is really as it should be, 4mS with the RedNet2 connected to my laptop.

I let my pro tools lapse in March. I don’t plan to send them another dime.

I spent $300 USD upgrading to Nuendo 10.

As opposed to spending $200 to update one year of Avid...

So far it is more stable, using exactly the same computer and audio hardware. LOL.

Things I got for that?

SURROUND MIXING.
DOLBY ATMOS MIXING.

And an endless list of stuff I am sure to use at some point, that still do not exist in PT.

Like, I dunno, BATCH RENAMING FACILITY.
