Congrats on the release :partying_face:
Does the Atmos renderer in Nuendo also support binaural monitoring on headphones? Looking at the videos and documentation I couldn’t find a definitive answer.
(asking because it’s also a feature in the production suite “Create and monitor headphone mixes with advanced binaural render mode metadata” ,

edit: found it, nvm.

Bought, installed and working!!! Thank you guys!! You ROCK!!! :boom: :boom: :boom:


Thank you Robin, much appreciated!

No time to post comments)) I need to finish my work first (in N11 ofcourse)

Bought, installed and playing with it ! Lots of new stuff to check actually…
Hopefully I’ll get my nickname back too.

You guys rock !

Do we still need the Dolby Production Suite to deliver a final Atmos Master file to streaming services like Tidal and Amazon?

Installed and working fine so far!

Thanks a lot!

Is there a trial available and do you have a link?I found the trial page but it’s still just for 10. I’d like to see if 11 is managing Perforce better - still making my decision whether to bring it into our studio.

There has been no change for Perforce for the initial version of 11. As I mentioned, we’re happy to look into the issues that you’re facing. I think you’re in contact with our Planning Team already re the GAC SDK. Let them know what specific issue you encounter with Perforce and we’ll check it.


That’s great Timo thanks, I’ll send an additional email. Anyhow looks like trials aren’t set up yet for 11, but I’d still like to give it a run if you good folks can get them set up.

No-brainer update. Great features, great price.

Can’t wait to finish this stupid job I’m on so I can install and try out.

Good stuff Timo.


Thank you, much appreciated. We’ve really been working on this to capacity.
