Matthew Loel T. Hepworth on May 11, in Review 0 comments Share: Much like the jump from Windows 8. This new version is loaded with new features, but is Nuendo right for you? It's a fact: Whether it's the announcement of a new processor, video card, or high-refresh rate monitor, the market's first reaction is:
Shares Our Verdict Nuendo is now a fully-functional, flexible audio and post-production system, and a genuine alternative to Pro Tools HD. Pros Sidechain routing. Automation options. Drag-and-drop FX. Cons You have to pay extra for the Nuendo Expansion Kit.
MediaBay needs third-party support. Image 1 of 3 Nuendo 4. Image 2 of 3 The Sample editor has been completely redesigned. Image 3 of 3 The VST3 compressor in sidechain mode. Steinberg is making things clear with Nuendo 4, though: Underlying Nuendo 4 is the VST3 audio architecture, which facilitates dynamic input and output assignment enabling plug-ins to process 5.
To make use of this, Nuendo 4 comes with 38 new plug-ins bringing the total to All insert plug-ins can now also be re-ordered, copied or moved between channels in the Mixer windows using drag-and-drop. But the highlight of the new plug-in functionality is the ability to use proper inter-channel sidechaining - as you might do in an analogue mixing environment - rather than the dodgy workarounds that have been the talk of Cubase and Nuendo forums for years. Thank you Steinberg!
While the underlying system of writing and recording automation events to tracks remains unchanged in Nuendo 4, it's been dramatically enhanced with the new Automation panel, and offers far more detailed control over how it's written, overwritten, read and updated. Add to this the new Fill, Trim and Punch options - plus a great Preview mode that's enhanced by the intriguingly named Touch Collect Assistant - and you have a truly up-to-date implementation.
Audio pitchshifting and timestretching have been greatly enhanced with the addition of MPEX 3, the latest version of the algorithm developed by Prosoniq makers of Time Factory. These audio manipulation enhancements extend to Audio Warp and some great track transpose features. As well as being able to transpose tracks from the Info Line, it's now possible to set a Root Key for a project and get musically useful transpositions of imported events or existing audio and MIDI material.
Parts can be excluded drum tracks for example , kept within an octave range or locked. On the editing front, there's now a much-improved Sample editor, which emulates the main Project window with its Inspector-style function tabs.
Some of these were only previously possible using Macros or multiple mouse gestures. The Logical Project editor opens up a whole world of editing and manipulation that was previously restricted to MIDI events.
It enables the creation of presets that can be assigned to individual keys, and the reappearance of some 'classic' functions from the days of Cubase VST 5.
There are numerous other tweaks and improvements including an enhanced channel strip, better waveform editing resolution, Apple remote support, MP3 surround encoding, live triggering of sections in the Arranger track formerly the Play Order Track and more. Cubase comparison Despite all these additional features it's worth noting that there are now some omissions in Nuendo 4 when compared to Cubase 4.
These include support for traditional music notation, a drum editor and four virtual instruments. These features can now be found in the optional Nuendo Expansion Kit. Even on its own, though, Nuendo 4 is very impressive. In our tests, it was completely stable and utterly reliable on both PC and Mac, and the additional routing options and sidechain support reinforce the feeling that this is an application that has really come of age.
Sure, Cubase is a great music production tool, but if you need improved video and surround support - and require maximum system interoperability - then the Nuendo option should definitely be explored.
