Hi T, hazarding a guess here, but Im sure you’ll be fine, although having everything (Vsti’s - extra Midi features etc) all in the one program would be better for a faster workflow. it still stumps me why Steinberg chose the NEK route?, I mean trying to eek out another 700 bucks or so, for loomash & prologue etc, I think just borders on mean!.
I cant think of any reason if you have C6 & Nuendo 5 (-nek) then you should have all bases covered,albeit a bit more of a hassle, but a more knowledgable user of Nuendo might care to comment if there are drawbacks. also It would have been a nice gesture if your a registered C6 owner that you get the NEK for free!..would have been the honourable thing in my book, and If they did, I would upgrade in a flash
The main drawback would be compatability with projects you have done in Cubase, not being opened properly in Nuendo…which in all aspects is rather a big MINUS …and in all honesty if youve paid for all the extra features once, why the bloody hell should you have to pay for them again!.. Yup if youve purchased Cubase, and you wish to upgrade to Nuendo, A free NEK would be the decent thing.
