With the rapidly increasing number of Dolby Atmos installations, the demand for Dolby Atmos mixes is rising fast. ADM files – such as those exported from the RMU or Dolby Atmos Production Suite Renderer software – can be imported into a new or existing Nuendo project with the object automation intact for further mixing or editing. Bed and object audio channels. pan automation, programs and content structure are all supported, with audio from ADM extracted to split mono files in the Nuendo project. Folder tracks are created to represent the ADM Program/Content structure, while object tracks are assigned to VST MultiPanner with Pan Automation.
Video Cut Detection
Another huge time-saver is the new Video Cut Detection (VCD) that allows you to analyze video files for edits and to insert markers for each one of those cuts. You can analyze complete video events or a selected range of a video event, while adjusting the sensitivity of the cut detection process. Once detected, you can insert markers either on the existing (active) marker track or by creating a new marker track. There are further options for marker settings as well as key commands to open the VCD panel, start the analysis and insert Markers helping to make it a fast and intuitive process.
Nuendo 10.2 introduces the long-awaited Video Rendering feature, which allows you to export a video file from your project, including audio. Thanks to this new feature you can now share sections of your current project at its latest stage, or even finished videos, with clients or other users for review and/or feedback. The current implementation is limited to MP4 files with H.264 video compression and stereo audio in 48 kHz/16 bit with AAC audio compression (not supported on Windows 7).
dearVR Spatial Connect support
Nuendo 10 now supports dearVR Spatial Connect, an immersive 3D audio production tool developed by Dear Reality. dearVR Spatial Connect allows any sound designer, musician or sound engineer to create and mix immersive 3D audio content directly in VR. Featuring a revolutionary, gesture-controlled workflow, it eliminates the need to switch back and forth between Nuendo and your VR production environment.
Doppler effect plug-in
The Doppler plug-in is a fast, straightforward way to simulate the perception of movement and distance of a sound and the changes in pitch as its source passes you, rising as it approaches and falling as it moves away. The higher the speed of the object, the stronger the Doppler effect.
Best used as a Direct Offline Process, you can set the Start, Listener and End positions and the Doppler plug-in will render the effect to the chosen audio. It can also be used as an insert plug-in.
The VoiceDesigner plug-in is the perfect tool for sound designers to modify voices, with parameters including Detune, Formant, Preserve (allowing pitch shifting with formant preservation), Robot, Morph and FX. Morph is a particularly powerful effect which lets you process the input sound with the characteristics of another signal to create unique, bespoke vocal effects. VoiceDesigner also features a mixer, which allows you to set different levels and frequency ranges when mixing the dry input, side-chain and wet signal.
New Distroyer processor
The asymmetric distortion of Distroyer adds body, character and harmonics to create everything from gentle analog warmth across a whole mix to hot distortion for kick drums.
Cue Sheet export
Nuendo 10.1 introduces this new feature which enables you to extract information or data from a project and save it as text file, usually in the form of a table or spreadsheet. By using Cue Sheet Export, you can create a report of all the pieces of music or voiceover clips used in the project, for accounting or as a reference when integrating them into other systems.
Nuendo 10 supports the ARA 2 specification for extended communication between ARA plug-ins and the DAW. ARA-compatible plug-ins are integrated in the Editor, which gives you access to all editing functions of the corresponding plug-in.
Time is always precious in the professional audio business, so Nuendo 10 includes many time-saving features and workflow enhancements to help you create content as quickly and efficiently as possible
