I just looked at some videos of the Nuage system and kept looking at the monitors mounted above the Master and Fader Sections. This looks pretty great. I wish there was a mode for Nuendo to handle a second and third monitor like that!
As you don’t move windows on a Nuage system, Nuage manages windows for you. If you use the EQ, it only shows the EQ on screen and then closes it again to show the mixer. If you open a plugin, it opens that plugin, puts it front and center and maps all controls to rotary encoders. It’s really cool. You don’t have to open windows, find a spot, move them somewhere and they constantly hide something or are under other windows that have “always on top” configured. So the screen always looks tidy and clean. If we could enable such a mode for a second monitor to only show relevant stuff and let Nuendo auto-manage them, I think this would be sweet.
Also, I noticed configurable buttons on the Master Section. You can configure buttons that replace keyboard shortcuts and name them. You don’t have to remember shortcuts you have buttons on a screen you can quickly access and do complex stuff easily. It looked a bit like the PT Control app in Softkeys mode. To have an app where you could just place your excessive key commands in the form of a button and trigger it without having to remember the menu it’s in or shortcut would be really nice too.
Nuage looks really cool.
