Steinberg chose the recent Games Developer Conference to present the latest iteration of Steinberg’s audio post-production workstation, Nuendo 10, which includes the implementation of numerous user requests related to audio post-production and game audio design like video cut detection, support for ADM file format, a new audio alignment panel and brand new Doppler Effect plug-in.
What Is New In Nuendo 10
To speed up post-production workflows, 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.
Doppler And VoiceDesigner
For sound designers Nuendo 10 includes a brand-new Doppler effect that virtually simulates the changing perception of a sound as its source passes. Amongst other new and redesigned plug-ins, the VoiceDesigner is a tool designed for modifying voices, with parameters such as Detune, Formant, Preserve (for pitch shifting while preserving formants), Robot, Morph and FX.
Support For ADM Immersive And Object Based Audio File Format
Nuendo 10 now allowing ADM files to be directly imported into a new or existing project. New video rendering capabilities. Steinberg has made improvements to Direct Offline Processing, such as quick easy drag-and-drop of insert plug-ins into the process and a loudness normalizer.
Dear Reality Spatial Connect 3D Support
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.
Head of the Pro Audio Team Timo Wildenhain explained…
“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.”
