Steinberg announced the latest version of its Nuendo Media Production System software, Nuendo 3, at the recent AES Convention in San Francisco. Nuendo 3 offers new features and technologies for post production, surround mixing and high-end studio recording, editing, and mixing.
“Out of the box” import and export of a huge variety of file formats include the AAF (Advanced Authoring Format), providing project transfer to and from other DAW and video editing systems, as well as current industry standard exchange formats such as OMF, OpenTL and AES31. Integration of Pinnacle’s X-Send protocol allows video projects completed in Liquid to be imported directly into Nuendo 3, ready for audio post. The new Warp To Picture feature offers a uniquely quick and efficient approach to synchronizing audio to picture by allowing the real-time time stretching of audio material with simultaneous real-time tracking of the corresponding video track.
Nuendo 3 also includes a new MixConvert plug-in and the Linked Panners feature. The new Audition Channel provides after and pre-fader listen modes, allowing instant monitoring of any audio channel while leaving the signal routed to the main mix bus untouched. The External Effect Plug-in allows the direct integration of outboard effects within the Nuendo 3 VST Mixer.
Real-time Audio Warp time stretching and pitch shifting allows re-molding of audio material to dynamically adapt to project tempo in real-time, and drum timing correction. The 10-minute pre-record function automatically records all audio routed to Nuendo 3, even if the record function is not enabled.
Nuendo 3 will be available in December 2004 with an MSRP of $1,999.99 U.S.
