I’ve not been mixing in surround a lot during the last couple of years, but I am currently working on a 5.1 mix.
I must really say that I was overwhelmed by Nuendo’s surround capabilities when I dived into this side of the software again over the last couple of weeks.
The downmixing and upmixing (iosono plug) capabilities are so immensely flexible, it made me very happy.
Sometimes you forget how amazing the tools we use today really are and this was one of those moments. We all tend to “want more” all the time and there are a lot of situations when I think to myself “I wish it could do this more easily…” but at the moment I just sit back and enjoy the wonders this magic piece of software can do for me.
