I’m not a frequent poster here but a regular Nuendo user, so permit me to post some of my thoughts please.
Since 2 ou 3 years, everytime I had the chance to talk directly to a Steinberg team member I asked more or less the same question : "When are you/why are you not providing Nuendo with new or more flexible surround options/panning configurations to be able to work with, let’s say up to an NHK 22.2 surround sound configurations ?
The answer was always the same : because at this point in time there is no normalization for such format.
Even though unsatisfactory for me I accepted the answer. But… now not only a norm, at least for speaker assignement, exist as part of the UHDTV protocol but DOLBY is now promoting it’s new ATMOS sound system with up to 64 channels of mixing !
So, my answer is simple dear Steinberg Team, what are your plans for bringing Nuendo up-to-date with these new surround sound formats ? Will it happen in N5 lifespan or do you have plans for the next version Nuendo 6 (as it may require bigger changes to the software core) ?
I would be more than happy if you could lighten me up on this matter.
Fellow Nuendo users, what do you think about this ?
