Steinberg Nuendo 10 adds sound design features
Posted on: Friday 22nd of March 2019
Presented for the very first time at this year’s Game Developer Conference (GDC) in San Francisco, the latest release of Steinberg’s audio post-production workstation, Nuendo 10, combines audio quality with a large number of advanced editing tools, intelligent workflow enhancements and new features. Nuendo 10 now adds a new Field Recorder Audio Import window, Video Cut Detection, VoiceDesigner effects, a Doppler effect, dearVR (see our March 2019 issue) support and much more. To expedite post-production workflow, Video Cut Detection analyses videos for edits and sets 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.
Nuendo 10 supports 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 unmatched 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.
“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,” states Timo Wildenhain, head of Steinberg’s Pro Audio Team.
Nuendo 10 will be available through resellers and the Steinberg Online Shop in Q2 2019. The suggested retail price for the boxed version of Nuendo 10, (which includes the required dongle), will be $999.99, the download version will be available for $979.99. Various downloadable updates and upgrades will exclusively be available through the Steinberg Online Shop.
