As the most advanced audio post-production solution available, Nuendo is the choice of film, TV, game audio and immersive sound industry professionals worldwide. Ever since its initial release, Nuendo has been a vital tool in creating the soundtrack to many high-profile productions, products and installations. Regular updates with new features, workflow improvements and additional, user-requested functions mean that Nuendo constantly exceeds the expectations of an audio workstation dedicated to audio post, with high end — often unique — capabilities that continue an ongoing revolution in audio and media production software.
Nuendo 13 introduces unique and time-saving features for dialogue editors, mixing and recording engineers, new integrated workflows for authoring MPEG-H Audio content, innovative tools for dialogue recording, Dolby Atmos improvements, additional plug-ins and more than 20 extra workflow enhancements. With Nuendo 13, the future of post-production starts now.
ADR Script Reader
With ADR Script Reader, Nuendo 13 moves away from cumbersome, document-based workflows. It shows ADR takes via a web browser, on any tablet or laptop on the same LAN network, letting the voice talent have a digital script and the ability for an editor or the session director to change it instantaneously. Dialogue can be edited and notes added in Nuendo’s marker data, with no need for the inconvenience of syncing documents. A Dialogue Context Preview displays the dialogue lines before and after those selected, highlighting how the currently-selected line is embedded in the scene.
TonalMatch is a new direct offline process (DOP) which analyses the sound characteristics of an audio recording and enables it to be transferred to other clips, matching the spectral profile (EQ) and ambient noise floor. It can be used to match an ADR session to the original production sound more quickly and precisely than has previously been achievable using EQs and/or other editing plug-ins.
VoiceSeparator is a new, AI-based VST plug-in which is trained to detect and isolate spoken dialogue from complex background noises, including other voices, and also to reduce or remove undesired voice sounds from background and ambient recordings. Used as an insert effect or DOP, it can be used to quickly isolate the sounds that are wanted and to remove those that aren’t.
Dialogue editing, processing and creative voice sound design are arts of their own, needing a lot of expertise and experience to master. The new VocalChain plug-in includes dedicated modules for the different steps of voice processing, helping to deliver excellent results. With a wide range of presets exclusively for post-production, VocalChain makes voice sound design faster and more efficient than ever.
Detect Silence Extensions
Cleaning up dialogue while keeping background noise for use on a different track is easier with the updated Detect Silence panel. Instead of only stripping silent parts, dialogue content can now be split automatically, then events can be created for the silent and non-silent areas. Dialogue and silent events can then be edited individually, as required by the project.
