I’m a bit curious about this one. The responses so far have been very unclear (unless I missed some or am completely stupid and simply didn’t get what was said to me, which is entirely possible).
I’m looking at the Nuendo 6 “mixing” video on the website, and at roughly 45 seconds they click the dropdown menu that says “Channel Types”. In it I see
and NOT VCA channels. So the question is obvious. Were VCA channels included in Nuendo 6 or not?
Again, watching the video I see absolutely nothing hinting at channel groups having been included. When I write “groups” I mean actual groups of channels, not parameters, groups that can be named and independently and/or globally turned on/off like in Pro Tools.
The benefit of this should be obvious, but to clarify the difference between the OLD Nuendo link behavior and PT’s way of working: In old Nuendo when linking channels there was no indication as to which channels were part of which “set” if you had more than one “set of linked channels”. So if I had a fairly large project and on the fly chose to link for example three background vocal tracks and later two different background vocal tracks, out of several more, a different engineer would have no idea which of the tracks that were linked belonged to the first or second set. Further more the management of the “sets” was completely rudimentary and insufficient. In contrast in PT each group (of faders) has it’s own color coding on both mixer and edit windows, it’s own “letter” assigned to it, can be independently switched on / off and one can open up the group edit window to select groups, add/delete tracks from it, change attributes etc.
The obvious question here is: If Nuendo 6 has actual “channel groups” what is its functionality?
If we’re stuck without real channel groups the questions I have are simply what visual cues I will be given by the software that a set of parameters have been linked and what options I have to add/delete and switch on/off those “sets” of linked parameters/channels.
Looking forward to some straightforward explanation on this.
