I’ve compiled a list of requests regarding the re-implementation of features that were cut out from Nuendo 8 up, and a list of future features request. Keep in mind that some of the issues I have with this features, might have some sort of solution that I’m not aware of, and for that, I’ll appreciate any kind of help.**
CLOSE FADE DIALOGUE BOX AUTOMATICALLY WHEN HITTING “APPLY “. Don’t know how this feature was cut out since it existed from Nuendo’s very first inception. Editing anything for Post took a toll, even if a small one, on my workflow.
CROSSFADE EDITOR BACKGROUND COLOR OPTION. Option to match the edit/editor windows background color to the crossfade background window. If my edit workspace is light grey for ex, I would like to match that color to the crossfade editor, like we do with the editors. Keep in mind, this feature was there for years and years.
BRING BACK TRANSPARENT EVENTS ON ITS PROPER FORM. Found myself having to work, yet again, on a lighter edit window background. Since Nuendo 6, I’ve changed my visual workflow on the edit window to a darker one, because the way Steinberg implemented the option to still have colored waveforms that match the track color on a darker background, was done by having a “grayish” event box color behind the waveform, thus, not compromising a lack of distinction between a dark blue waveform, for ex, and the edit window dark background. That was the perfect visual workflow for me, everything just pops, and for audio post that was visual accuracy heaven. Just implement a “-5 to 0 to +5” on the events opacity slider on Preferences, just an ex. Am I nitpicking ? Maybe, but then again, THIS FEATURE WAS THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE FOR YEARS AND YEARS.
FUTURE FEATURE REQUESTS:
OPTION TO SAVE SYSTEM LEVEL SETTINGS WITHIN TEMPLATES. For example, one template for editing and one for recording, allowing to save Asio Guard on/off accordingly ( couldn’t find a key command to turn Asio Guard on/off).
Again, on system level, allow to save the STUDIO settings/connections on Templates, and don’t get me started on PROFILES, its not reliable, neither are the settings we make on the studio connections while upgrading from Nuendo X to Nuendo XX, please fix all those Preferences “Backups”.
SAVE TEMPLATES WITHOUT MEDIA. This one is a classic!!!
NAMING CUE SENDS ON THE MIX CONSOLE. Well, this one is self explanatory, I would appreciate naming my Talents/Monitoring on the mix console/hardware controller, instead of having “Cue 1”, “Cue 2”, etc…
Can we name our cue mixes: PHONES 1, PHONES 2, Steinberg?! ( just an ex)
NOW FOR A LITTLE, BUT JUSTIFIED, IN MY OPINION, RANT!
Been a professional Steinberg customer since Nuendo 2, plus rme clocks, plus rme syncstations, plus rme ad/da converters, in fact, that was a Steinberg bundle back in the days, hence my rme reference.
Till Nuendo 8, I didn’t really had any kind of conflict between the new features and the old ones as new Nuendo versions were being released. Things changed from N8 to N10, where, while new features were being implemented and welcome’d, some workflow features became more cumbersome, THIS DID NOT HAPPENED DURING N2 TO N8, that boggles my mind, CUBASE/NUENDO CROSS DEVELOPMENT HAPPENING ON THAT PERIOD TIME, COINCIDENCE? I don’t think so.
I would appreciate, and if some of the issues I have aren’t justified, any kind of workaround/solution.
