firstly I must confess that I am a Pro Tools convert and that maybe I shouldn’t be asking Nuendo to do PT tasks and just accept that different apps do different things. However, there are many things that I was so used to in PT which I’m struggling without and things that I think would improve Nuendo, which I do think is amazing in many ways.
There are also things that may be possible that I just don’t know how to do, so if any one has any ways to get any of these requests to work with macros/preferences etc, please let me know.
-Smaller dots on automation lanes rather than the quite clunky squares.
-Nudge automation using snap value and use nudge quick keys, rather than dragging a selection with the mouse
-Automation: please make it easier to adjust a block of automation and automation for the whole track
-Automation: please enable more precise increment adjustments say by holding the shift key, sometimes this works other times it doesn’t for me anyway.
-To be able to delete tracks from the mix console
-To be able move tracks around in mix console
-To be able to rename tracks in the mix console
-To be able to scroll in the mix window, without changing the fader positions - this is a must!!
-To be able to set the input for a group as physical input - for say Talkback
-importing audio from media bay, can there be a visual alert if it’s overlapping another event in the timeline, can the length of the file be displayed on the timeline as say a shadow or an outline?
-Display event gain value (in dB) on the actual event, this would help to quickly visualise multiple events simultaneously on the timeline
-Routing: Please implement being able to route the output or send from a group to audio tracks for printing, so I could send to an audio track at -6db for example - there could be a way to do this that I’m missing. I know you can use direct routing but can you adjust the level?
-The project file name would be the same as the project name when saving by default, rather than having to re-type in the save file
-A quick way to rename an event rather than going into the info bar every time, a quick key maybe - especially helpful when doing multiple events manually
- -or be able to manually rename in the event editor as a list, this would be helpful for different versions with out a csv file
-Event naming - remove brackets for original file name, maybe just have as a toggle option or show in the info bar, also apply when exporting printed tracks with just description - the original file name is not needed
-Folder for backups rather than loose files
-Shortcut to open last project
-bringing in left and right sides of an audio file on to one track as a stereo file - same applies to AAF imports, I realise that you can consolidate on to new tracks but this could be a lot easier by dragging two sides onto one track.
-if I duplicate tracks, could there be an option to duplicate the track with events or just the actual track with it’s settings and routing etc, like the option in PT
-Export cycle markers to 1 new track rather than multiple / maybe combine with export range selection as block events but with cycle marker names to one track?
-Implement easier marker recall similar to Pro Tools - helpful for markers above numbered above 9
-Jump to and select next event (CMD + TAB in PT) when the cursor is just in the timeline and no other event is selected.
-Jump to/find/centre cursor, particularly useful if it’s off screen
-Improve scrub for finding clicks, more volume, higher definition - this could be/probably is an error on my part.
-go to previous selection/cursor position (OPT + CMD +Z in PT) - this is extremely useful, have also requested Izotope implement this in RX
-To be able to drag the fade of an event out beyond the confines of the event without pulling out the bottom
-option to toggle: to be able to spit/trim front or end at cursor in the middle of a fade and to have the current fade start/stop there rather than moving the whole fade region back/forward within the event.
-Edit basic fade shape by clicking and dragging within the event’s fade area
