Expanded Dolby Atmos and immersive audio

Nuendo 12’s new features make it a breeze to design for Dolby Atmos, Ambisonics, and other immersive audio systems. The new Dolby Atmos Setup Assistant drastically reduces the time it takes to convert existing projects into Dolby Atmos projects using an internal renderer; this renderer can also create binaural re-renders of Dolby Atmos content for simulated immersive audio on headphones. Neundo 12 also features support for Sound Particles’ Space Controller OSC mixing software, a streamlined Ambisonics to stereo binaural convertor with the ability to create complex custom monitoring chains, and, of course, classic Nuendo tools like Netflix-compliant sound optimization, Soundly Cloud Services, and the SuperVision metering plug-in.

Headphones Match

The powerful new Headphones Match tool equips you with spot-on specs for 387 different headphone models with neutral frequency responses, so you can make mixing judgments using ultra-accurate compensation curves. There's also the option to directly emulate the sound of a different pair of headphones.

Ultra-advanced mixing console optimized for post

Here you'll find the gold standard of what a post-optimized mixing console should be: Nuendo’s sleek mixer gives you up to 22.2 support with instant access to all vital functions in a single window. It’s a lightning-fast system that doesn’t drown you in menus. Need bulk editing? The Quick Link system and Control Link groups temporarily or permanently link entire channels or specific parameters. Want presets? You can store View Sets to store old configurations for recall down the road. Plus, Nuendo 12 includes up to four different MixConsoles, each with its own channel visibility layout so you can choose and arrange which channels you see.

VCA faders for advanced channel groups

Nuendo 12’s onboard VCA fader technology facilitates an entire second layer of mixing within the MixConsole. Complex, dynamic mixes are always within easy reach with these faders, and with the Combine VCA fader feature there's plenty of potential for advanced automation. Simply merge the automation curve of one VCA fader with the automation curve of a controlled fader or fader group and let the time savings roll!

Painless ADR and dialogue editing 

ADR (automated dialog replacement) can get tedious. Between dealing with talent, cue points, tracks, and more, ADR can take its toll on even the most meticulous pros. Already an industry leader, Nuendo 12 adds new attribute tag tools for managing everything from voiceover to foley sessions. Dialogue supervisors will really appreciate the new onboard ADR API for using Nuendo software with third-party taker systems like dialogue script editors as well as new EdiCue V4 support for importing PDF scripts right into the software. Also new to Nuendo 12 are enhanced dialogue detection tools for removing silence in tracks, and an audition function for screening automatic detections before their removal.

Smooth re-conforming for film and TV post

Film and TV editors are sadly familiar with this scenario: your project’s audio and video are perfectly in sync, but then the video editor sends you a new picture cut. ReConform to the rescue! Nuendo's re-conforming algorithm detects picture changes using EDL (Edit Decision List) comparisons between old and new cuts. This tool generates a change list that executes an automatic re-conform. For surety, Nuendo gives you a preview of the anticipated result before the process even begins so you can make sure the work is accurate. And the ReConform process is customizable with options for the handling of gaps, placement options for processing and markers, and even your choice of different matching algorithms.

Feature-packed Channel Strip EQ

Channel Strip EQ gives you quick mouse-value readouts for gain, frequency, and note pitch, perfect for editing values on the fly. The Pre section offers selectable-slope high and low cuts, which makes it easier than ever to tailor dialog, music, and FX to your project’s needs. Nuendo built their Channel Strip EQ module in collaboration with seasoned audio engineers and it really shows — the end result is software that's jam-packed with the flavor and feel of a top-tier analog console.

Integration with Audiokinetic Wwise middleware

Nuendo’s Game Audio Connect saves develops hours and hours of tedious labor. With 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 instead of saving them one by one for arduous import into Wwise later. Game Connect's tools sidestep the time-gobbling of manually configuring import and export dialogs which gives you more time to refine projects to perfection.
