This is one of my favorite nuendo features really.
on dialog for example, my edit, eq, leveling and noise control exists on the audio track with tight control over what is hitting comp/limit or harmonics with the post fader inserts.
This feeds my character subgroups which is where I balance everybody against the rest of the soundtrack. It’s nice.
In combo with the automated routing matrix… I can pull off large dialog projects with a small amount of tracks for the edit.
this set up also applies to sfx and other elements. It’s nice to be able to have that control and freely pan things around the room with out having to worry about surround plug ins for processing
