We must be close to a new version of Nuendo, I think. I’m very curious (and I’m sure I’m not the only one) to see what advances Steinberg has in store for us. Particularly in Atmos, but also in terms of workflow (I won’t give any details, otherwise the thread will go off on all sides).
Am I right to expect a next version soon, or am I wrong?
You know - what you are actually provoking here is the old lament that most of us seasoned users would prefer fixes for all those old and very old issues to a bunch of shiny new features that nobody really asked for.
Just thinking about the fact that the “Rename objects” function no longer works with German special characters ä ö ü … since version 11 makes me cry (Support has confirmed the error.). That would be more important to me than a few new plugins.
I would be happy about a switchable color palette.
Or if there was the Pan Normalizer from WaveLab in Nuendo.
But since we have a 2 year cycle now, I think Cubase November 2023 - Nuendo May 2024.
I’m familiar with this answer and I understand (just a working ARA 2 would be great). But I’m also hoping for improvements to important functions: real clip gain (positive as well as negative), better object management (and a better fixed interface), the ability to move tracks around in Mixconsoles, and then see directories in them (which you could open and close). Also the ability to get a list of stretched events (which is CPU-intensive in real time), instead of searching for them visually (in order to convert them into a file). Etc.
Not really a new opinion - but not delaying Nuendo and releasing it along with Cubase only means delaying Cubase just to make the release concurrent. No other reason. Doesn’t really seem fair to Cubase users… and we gain nothing in the process…
As a result, Nuendo is 6 months behind Cubase in terms of new functions and improvements (which is nothing to sneeze at). Perhaps there’s a gain in stability, with Cubase serving as a prototype, but I’m not sure why. But hey, we don’t decide. We’ll wait, although we’re very busy elsewhere anyway. But I was curious.
In case what I meant wasn’t clear; What I meant was that a new Cubase comes with new features but since Nuendo will have all of those plus more features it stands to reason that there’s more work to be done in Nuendo than in Cubase. Therefore if Nuendo is ready it seems Cubase would have likely been ready earlier which in turn means that to release them at the same time would mean Steinberg holding off on releasing Cubase even though it’s done… again - just to release them at the same time.
I understand, but then you have to compare the time between versions. And it’s the same, or thereabouts, in both cases. I agree, however, that the links and consequences of new programming are more complex in Nuendo.
I’d like to take this opportunity to say that, despite some points that disapoint me (see my initial text above), I’m often surprised by this Daw’s profound qualities. I’m still discovering all its dimensions.
Please don’t take my comment offensive. This post reminds of the iPhone, whenever a new one comes out, there’s always someone asking when is the next one coming out while most of us are still trying to figure out all the features and bugs in the current version.
