Yamaha QL and TF Consoles Now Include Steinberg Nuendo Live

Steinberg Nuendo Live Is Now Bundled with Yamaha QL and TF Consoles for Enhanced Live Recording Capability

Yamaha announces that Steinberg Nuendo Live DAW software is being bundled with Yamaha QL and TF Series consoles, providing users with advanced multitrack recording and virtual soundcheck capabilities. The Nuendo Live bundle for Yamaha QL and TF series consoles will be available in April.

Nuendo Live was previously available only as a stand-alone DAW or included with Yamaha’s CL Series digital mixing consoles. It is now integrated across all three console series, thanks to a collaboration between Yamaha and Steinberg, a member of the Yamaha group.

Nuendo Live multitrack recording software is designed for use in live sound applications, from club gigs, to hall concerts and festivals. It offers ease of operation in busy live sound situations, high reliability, and a comprehensive range of features that add up to professional performance and efficiency. Direct control of channel names, markers, and transport operation from QL Series consoles contributes to tight integration between DAW and console in a streamlined live recording system (TF consoles require a PC for Nuendo control).

Nuendo Live is the perfect complement to Yamaha QL Series digital mixing consoles, which feature high input and output capacity for a wide range of applications. Built-in Dante connectivity provides effortless networking between QL consoles, CL series consoles and R series I/O racks.

Similarly, Nuendo Live brings greater power and system flexibility to the TF series (which stands for TouchFlow Operation). The series comprises the TF5, TF3 and TF1 digital mixing consoles, which feature 33-, 25- and 17-motor faders, respectively, along with 32, 24 and 16 rear panel analog inputs. Each console includes recallable Yamaha D-PRE preamplifiers for the first time in a digital console, which facilitates support for live music and events where full setup changes need to be made on the fly. Nuendo Live will replace the Cubase AI software previously bundled with TF series consoles.

In addition to the advanced multitrack recording and virtual soundcheck capabilities that this powerful combination of hardware and software provides, users will be able to seamlessly move Nuendo Live project files from system to system, allowing easy soundchecks in a wider variety of environments.
