I have always wanted to purchase Nuendo and am really temped by the great crossgrade price right now. However, I do not see a trial is ready yet.
Does v10 have the ability for me to load SPAT v3, which has 16 stereo inputs on one FX channel and send from instrument tracks/Midi tracks and access all 16 of those channels?
I am trying to get away from the “one SPAT per track” BS.
I am resurrecting this thread because I am looking to see how this gets setup.
I downloaded the trial version and when I create a new FX track and insert SPAT v3 on it, I can clearly see all the channels are activated inside of SPAT (all 16 inputs). I can group them and do everything that I would expect to be able to do.
However, what I cannot do is figure out how to activate the inputs on the actual FX channel itself so that I can use them as a target output from an instrument/midi channel. Any idea if this is possible or what I am missing? Here are the steps I take:
- Create a 22.2 FX Channel
- Insert SPAT v3 as an “Insert”
- Open Plugin and activate all 16 channels in SPAT plugin. Works.
- Create new Instrument Track - VSL VI Pro
- Load up basic Violins Patch in VI Pro
- Open up Nuendo Mixer (F3) and change VI Pro Instrument Track “Output” to “SPAT FX Channel”.
It’s at this point, that I do not see any available inputs on the FX channel other than the standard Stereo in/out. How do I activate all of the other channels available on this FX track so I can point Violins 1 to Channels 1&2, Violins 2 to 3&4, Violas to 5&6 etc.?
Judging from your signature you seem to own a possible answer to your issue already:
BTW: MIR 3D / immersive audio update is in the works!
MIR Pro as it is, is pretty darn immersive. Sign me up!
That’s super exciting! I already do use MIR . Sometimes it’s nice to be able to automate the movement of the instrument without a drop of audio. I also find that SPAT doesn’t color the instrument as much as MIR does. Most of the time I appreciate and need the coloring, but not always.
Are you even able to give an idea if this is a 2020 thing for 3D audio hehe .! That has me really curious and hopefully you’re not teasing me with a 2023 release feature lol!
I see. This is (and will remain) MIR’s blind spot, so to speak. sigh … the old “samples-vs.-synthesis”-dilemma.

I was just cracking a joke anyway. … I absolutely understand the need of different tools for different tasks. Sometimes SPAT and MIR are treated as if they were interchangeable which they clearly aren’t. It’s just that as a plug-in MIR’s underlying routing concept is more flexible and straight-forward, that’s why I replied at all.

It’s not the proper forum to discuss the topic, but we have high hopes to see MIR 3D later this year. We have already tested alpha-versions with re-vamped HOA impulse responses (3rd order, that is), and we all were pretty euphoric about those first results.
