Steinberg Streamlines Surround WorkflowNew software tools improve productivity for audio professionals (November 02, 2004)
Steinberg, the Audio Group of Pinnacle Systems, recently showed how its products streamline surround-sound production workflow at the 117th AES show held in San Francisco. The company showed how its Nuendo 3 Media Production System can be used to mix, edit, and sweeten surround-format audio locked to HD video, and how their Wavelab 5 software can be used to edit, master, and burn the final product to DVD-A format audio discs.
Nuendo and Wavelab: A Surround Producers Dream Come True.
With the introduction of new versions of Nuendo and Wavelab, Steinberg now provides a complete solution for audio engineers and producers who are working with surround-format audio. Nuendo is a host-based software system and leaves the user free to choose from hundreds of ASIO compliant hardware I/O options, allowing audio to be captured with a vast array of computers including laptops for location recording. Once captured, audio files can then be transferred, synced via Steinbergs VST System Link technology, or networked via built in networking capabilities to other systems for post-production. Audio can then be mixed and sweetened entirely inside Nuendo using a variety of external control surfaces and surround capable VST plug-ins from Steinberg or hundreds of available from third party manufacturers. Final mixes can then be opened in Wavelab 5, Steinbergs multi-channel audio mastering and editing tool, for playlist editing, mastering, further sweetening and burning directly onto a DVD-A disc prior to release to production.
Film, Music, and Games: A Wide Range of Surround Applications
As surround has moved beyond buzzword and into the forefront of todays audio production, Steinberg technology keeps producers on the cutting edge in all facets of the industry by continually streamlining the workflow and improving the implementation of multi-channel audio in its products. Nuendo has been recently utilized on surround critical applications such as major studio feature film releases, broadcast of live music shows and concert events, in sound design studios for major video game producers, as well as in surround music production and remixing. Wavelab has been utilized to broadcast nationally syndicated radio programs, to edit major label stereo and multi-channel surround music releases, and by many of the biggest mastering studios.
