2020: 20 years of Nuendo: a personal THANK YOU

Dear all,

Today I have the great pleasure to announce the celebration of “20 years of Nuendo”. Back in the year 2000, Steinberg released a software that would not only encompass all functions of the back-then already popular Cubase product, but a more exclusive product for professionals that also included features for audio post-production. Nuendo was born, and over the years, introduced many unique and industry-new features, many of which are Nuendo exclusives still today.

Features ranging from MediaBay (Nuendo 4) over Batch Export (Nuendo 5), ADR System (Nuendo 6), Game Audio Connect & ReConforming (Nuendo 7) to Randomizer & Direct Offline Processing (Nuendo 8) and Video Rendering & ADM support (Nuendo 10), have left their footprint in the history of the product and our industry. The strength of Nuendo has always been the close integration of as many workflows as possible. In all these years, Nuendo has seen a great development. 2019 was the most successful year in its product history.

This long and successful journey has only been possible because of: you. It is your engagement, your contribution, your patience, your love for this product, that made Nuendo what it is today: the world’s most versatile audio application. It is you that drives us at Steinberg, to achieve the best and innovative solutions (even sometimes in heated discussions here in the forums :wink:).

So, we not only owe you a great DAW application, but a big THANK YOU for being a loyal customer, contributer and a member of the Nuendo family for many years. We might not be the “biggest” user group in the world, but Nuendo, as a premium product, has tens of thousands of users all around the globe that are very skilled and work on the most impressive TV series, films, games, albums, immersive sound projects, live recording sessions, in Virtual Reality and Broadcast.

We very much appreciate your engagement and we’d love to stay in contact with you here in the forums, further on. That said, I take the chance to personally thank my dear friend Fredo Gevaert, who’s been helping to moderate this forum for more than a decade. Fredo, the forums wouldn’t be the same without your voice.

Now, we would have loved to celebrate this anniversary together with you in local events. Unfortunately, we’re facing difficult times and therefore “celebrating” might not be the right word. The creative industry has been hit hard by the pandemic. I had quite a few conversations with studios around the world; while many of them are very concerned about the current situation, I also received positive outlooks on future projects.

And: the next Nuendo version is in the making. It will be the biggest update in product history.

Thank you again.

Truly yours,


Thank YOU Timo, Fredo and the team!!! I’ve been on Nuendo since v1.0.0 and you’ve all been an integral part of my life for those 20 years. As my only DAW, Nuendo is very close to my heart and this update is really special!

Here’s to the next 20 years!!!

Thank you for a great (best) DAW out there!
Keep rolling!

That’s fabulous news! Thank you. Now, WHEN WILL 10.4 COME OUT!? I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR 2 HOURS! :wink:

Also, thank you for all the Ambisonic fixes.

Thanks Timo and your amazing team, and congratulations on the 20th anniversary. I’m updating today although I’m in the middle of a project. this is how much confidence I have in you. looking forward to many more years of innovation.

Thank you. Looking forward to update with all these new awaited features. So exciting. Keep rocking Steinberg!

Very happy user since v1.5 here, thank you everyone at SB. Still waiting for V9 :mrgreen:

Thank you Timo and team!

Thank you to everyone at Steinberg. It’s been a long journey since my first copy of Pro-24 on the Atari ST. What a blast! Thank you for keeping the passion and the spirit alive all these years! :slight_smile:

Thank you Steinberg. All my job is around Nuendo, an incredible tool.

Great update! Thank you Steinberg!

very nice update - so far works great! And it looks way better too!
Thank you guys for a very nice DAW Software!

Thank you Timo. Great update !

Add hello to Fredo the moderator (and the great guy in real life).

Awesome! I downloaded the update five minutes after I got the mail, and has had a lot of joy out of it already. I can’t put in words how much I love the fixed CPU-bug when using VST3 for instance! Didn’t even know that was the problem here, but working now is a dream.
Starting out with Pro24 III and then Cubase 2 and 3 on Atari, and continue with Cubase 3 SE and then Nuendo 2 and then all versions since on PC, I’ve seen your products taking quite a journey, striding huge leaps each and every time during these like 25 years! I truly appreciate that.

Thanks to all at Steinberg. Been with you since v2. Still by far the best DAW there is!

Many thanks been here since 1.0

Only a year on Nuendo (Cubase since 2000!), but enjoying the N10 experience & looking forward to checking out 10.3! :smiley:

Just want to say THANK YOU back to Steinberg, for building these amazing tools over the years that helped me with my creative passion and work. Congrats on this anniversary, and here’s to 20 more years of Nuendo!

Right on. User since version 1, owner since 5. I’ve had to work on pretty much all DAW’s, but Nuendo is still my fave and the heart of my studio.

I’m with Nuendo since version 6.0 and Seriously Steinberg? You Rock!!! Thank you so much for everything.
