3 weeks ago, I found out that my local pro music shop had Nuage available to try out. It’s taken all of that time to finally free up my schedule and go lay my hands on it. What an experience! Actually touching the physical version of the N6 console I’ve been looking at for all of this time was like meeting a girl you fell in love with online and finally got to actually go out! I WANT IT!!
I thought that it would ONLY work for Nuendo and I didn’t want to be backed into a “WK id” corner. But when I learned that you could run 3 DAWs at once (the other 2 via HUI protocol), I was hooked. It looks like a desk, it feels like a desk and It works like a desk (or at least like an “ICON desk”), with DSP chips removing the latency for live recording!
Now, I want to sell all of my other gear to get one! I can’t remember the last time I actually got excited about a piece of gear! The market is down, budgets are suicidally low and there’s absolutely no sane justification that I can “bring to congress (translation: wife)” that would get “that bill to pass!”
Nevetheless (start playing “Climb Every Mountain” in the background) my brothers, I will be looking for every opportunity to “swing for the fences” on this one! Well done Steinberg/Yamaha!
