Long time Nuendo user here… I’ve got a question concerning wav files I’m trying to import into Nuendo.
I’m on Nuendo 3 (yeah I know old old old) and I’ve got N4 (also old) but I prefer working in 3.
The broadcast wav files sent to me, from North Carolina (I’m in Texas) were created in Digital Performer. I make sure that Nuendo is at the same sample rate and bit depth as the files being imported (in this case 44.1/24). The imported files all play back fast and seem time compressed — again, I want to stress this is not a sample rate mis-match.
When I go to import the wav files and I highlight the files/tracks to bring in, Nuendo tells me the Sample rate and bit depth, 44.1 24 bit AND at the bottom of the import window Neuendo says:
ACID: 4/4 0BpM 128 bars ---- or ----- or ACID 4/4 0BPM 114 bars ------ or -------- or ACID 4/4 0BPM 72 bars.
I’m wondering what the person with digital performer might have engaged that’s making the files show up with the ACID designation; or what this ACID designation means – I’m imported tons of stuff and have never seen any other designations except sample rate and bit depth
The template I use only has a single track - this enables Nuendo to import all the files and name them and create tracks. And as far as I can tell, nothing is engaged on my side, and project setup is 44.1/24. I’m not working to any grid or tempo maps – But, could I have something engaged in Nuendo, that is causing these files to zig when they should zag — play at a faster tempo than orignlly recorded at?
Another thing is that the files all come in to Nuendo with the “Toggle Timebase Between Musical and Linear” box checked – this has never happened on files I’ve imported from other studios.
Any ideas what I can do on my end or what I should tell him to do or not do on his end – pretty frustrating to say the least.
