Steinberg Nuendo 7
In Stock!

The Post-Production DAW.

When it comes to audio post production, Steinberg Nuendo 7 rules. With each new release, Nuendo raises the bar for dedicated audio-post software - and you'll see this in every aspect of your audio-for-picture work with Nuendo 7. Nuendo 7 innovations include unique features for game audio production as well as traditional film and TV post. From integration with game middleware, to automatic picture-edit re-conforming, to ADR, Steinberg Nuendo 7 gives you powerful, dedicated tools that streamline your workflow and ensure that you deliver the highest-quality product.

Steinberg Nuendo 7 at a Glance:
  • Packed with killer instruments and effects
  • Ultra-advanced mixing console optimized for post
  • VCA faders and improved Channel Strip EQ
  • Smooth re-conforming for film and TV post
  • Nuendo 7 takes the pain out of ADR
  • Integration with Audiokinetic Wwise middleware
Packed with killer instruments and effects

Steinberg Nuendo 7 is loaded with a powerful arsenal of instruments and effects that gives you the creative edge when you've got a massive project with a suffocating deadline. From HALion Sonic SE 2 (a streamlined version of Steinberg's acclaimed sample player/synth) and the Padshop granular synthesis engine to the Multiband Expander, Multiband Envelope Shaper, VST Bass Amp, Quadrafuzz v2 - and more, Nuendo 7 arms you with the tools you need for creative post production.

Ultra-advanced mixing console optimized for post

Steinberg Nuendo 7 ups the ante for what a post-optimized mixing console should be. With its sleek single-window concept, Nuendo 7's mixing surface gives you instant access to all vital functions and delivers a plethora of visibility configurations and drag-and-drop functionality for lightening-fast operation. An intuitive Quick Link system and Control Link groups let you temporarily or permanently link entire channels - or just specific parameters. The View Sets function lets you store and recall any channel configuration as a preset. You get up to four different MixConsoles, and each one comes with its own channel visibility management, letting you define which channels you want to see - and how they'e arranged.

VCA faders and improved Channel Strip EQ

Steinberg Nuendo 7's VCA fader technology lets you create a second mixing "layer" within the Nuendo MixConsole. VCA faders in Nuendo 7 not only help you create complex mixes for film and television projects, they also give you the option of more advanced automation workflows using the Combine VCA fader automation feature. Simply merge the automation curve of a VCA fader with the automation curve of a controlled fader or fader group. Nuendo 7's channel strip EQ module gives you additional mouse-over value readouts for gain, frequency, and its equivalent in note pitch, so you can enter pitch notes or cent values for each band, instead of Hz. The Pre section offers selectable slopes of 6, 12 (default), 24, 36, and 48 for high and low cut, making it easier than ever to sculpt your dialog, music, and FX to perfection.

Smooth re-conforming for film and TV post

Film and TV editors here at Sweetwater are sadly familiar with this: your project and all its audio files perfectly match the picture, but then the video editor sends you a new picture cut. ReConform to the rescue! Nuendo 7's re-conforming algorithm detects picture changes on the basis of EDL (Edit Decision List) comparisons of previous and new EDLs. This generates a change list which is used to execute a re-conform. Not to worry, though. Before the process even begins, Nuendo 7 gives you a preview of the anticipated result. You also get several options for the re-conform process, including the handling of gaps, several processing and marker placement options, and even a choice of different matching algorithms.

Nuendo 7 takes the pain out of ADR

ADR - automated dialog replacement - can be a pain. Dealing with "the talent," as well as a myriad of cue points, tracks, and record ons and offs, can take its toll on your project schedule - and your patience. Luckily, Steinberg's Nuendo 7 sports a complete ADR system that makes short work of all of the above. If you've used other ADR systems, you'll be amazed at how streamlined and easy Nuendo 7 makes the ADR process - and it's also a fast, flexible tool for managing Foley sessions.

Integration with Audiokinetic Wwise middleware

Rather than saving your audio assets one-by-one on a hard drive and arduously importing them into Wwise at a later time, Steinberg Nuendo 7 saves you hours upon hours of tedious labor. Via Game Audio Connect, you just drag-and-drop audio files (including your custom naming conventions like project name, folder path, and track name) to Wwise. This lets you sidestep time-gobbling minutiae such as manually configuring your import and export dialogs. You save invaluable production time, even when round-tripping an audio asset in Wwise back to its respective Nuendo project, by simply recalling the original Nuendo project from that audio file.

Steinberg Nuendo 7 Features:
  • Game Audio Connect integration with Audiokinetic Wwise game audio middleware
  • Integration with Perforce version management
  • ReConform solution for automatic audio-to-picture alignment, including preview functions
  • Advanced project collaboration for easy exchange of audio tracks
  • Exchange audio files and program data between several Nuendo projects
  • VCA fader support - work with large mixing projects on a second mixing layer
  • Render Export and Render-in-place to a hard drive or to the same Nuendo project
  • New effects and updated plug-ins:
    • Multiband Expander, Multiband Envelope Shaper
    • VST Bass Amp, Quadrafuzz v2, and more
    • HALion Sonic SE 2 and Padshop synths (both new in Nuendo 7)
  • Improved windows handling:
    • New workspace organizer and new rack zone with dockable MediaBay
  • Vastly improved program performance
    • Faster load times
    • Smoother program behavior
  • Redesigned track list and Inspector, enhanced channel-strip EQ

Nuendo 7 + NEK Rocks!

I have been using Nuendo + NEK since version 2. Steinberg has been continually improving an already great product. Integration with my 02r96v2 is fantastic. The combination provides exceptional audio quality and flexibility.I work on projects ranging from live music recording and mixing to electronic music and game audio. Nuendo is simply the best workflow for surround sound work. NEK features too numerous to mention but adds genuinely useful tools. Rarely need to go to outboard gear anymore.I move projects from PC to MAC daily without issue. 64bit support now takes advantage of large RAM configurations. My studio machine is a 32GB/i5 based Win7 machine with a 1TB SSD and an RME HDSP 9652 for audio I/O. I generally run many VST plugins (Steinberg/Waves/Native Instruments) simultaneously. Everything just works.
