I am a long-time user of Nuendo (since V2), and during that time I have mostly worked with sound for feature films, mainly focusing on dialogue edit and re-recording mixing. Through the years, I have noted some feature requests that would help immensely with everyday sound work. I have highlighted the requests that I believe are the most needed improvements.
Auditioning events in DOP should be with the same clip volume as in the sequencer.
-If you have an event with -20dB in the sequencer, it still auditions in DOP as if it was set to 0 dB. The volume could be extremely high in comparison to its playback volume in the sequencer.
This can be extremely dangerous when mixing on a dubbing stage. Sometimes my ears bleed because of this, and I find myself constantly having to adjust the volume slider in the DOP window. Most of the time, I just want to hear the sound at the same volume as I am working with in the project.
One possible solution to this issue could be that the volume slider in DOP follows the event volume.
I can not stress the importance of this feature request enough.
Autoplay option in DOP, or the possibility to Audition with a key command.
-I use DOP at least a thousand times every day. I always want to listen to the clip I am processing anyway. Having this option would save a lot of time!
It would be great to have the possibility to pin the DOP window to the lower zone in the sequencer. It is very frustrating to constantly have to move the window around or open/close it.
DOP auditioning post track inserts.
-I would love to have an option to listen to the event I am processing in DOP through the inserts chain on the track it is placed on. Maybe you could add a toggle button for that.
Routing of the DOP signal.
-When working with theatrical surround mixes, I need to know how the processed clip will sound in the speaker where it is supposed to be played back. When adjusting an EQ on a dialogue clip, it sounds different when it is auditioned in L/R speakers instead of the center.
Which feature would you like to see the most?
Please run a discussion!
