I have been demoing a Nuage intensively doing a feature film mix these last three weeks.
I am faster and more efficient on the Nuage than on the S5MC I have had for over ten years…
I do not feel the need for a fader swap function at all as I in effect have eight banks/layers available on the surface and a dynamic system that Is FAR more efficient than using fixed layouts.
The biggest thing I would want to change is improved visibility of Preview button/indicator. This is a pretty big isdue as its visibility and placement isn’t good.
The next thing would need further features in Nuendo an that would be “expand” based on multiple selected channels. This currently only supports the first channel. There are many workarounds to get to see the channels needed but expand is addictive and To be able to select just two groups and hit expand to show the connected tracks instantly would make it even better.
