BUENA PARK, CA — Steinberg Media Technologies (www.yamaha.com) will release Nuendo 8 in June, the latest version of its digital audio workstation software. Nuendo 8 places emphasis on sound design, providing users with the necessary tools to create and manipulate audio.
The Sound Randomizer plug-in creates different variations of a sound instantaneously, adjusting its pitch, timbre, impact and timing. The newly introduced Sampler Track is an easily-accessible tool that allows users to drag and drop audio from the MediaBay into the track, and play and manipulate the sample. Also included in Nuendo 8 is the virtual-analog Retrologue 2 synthesizer; HALion Sonic SE 3; over 80 effects processors, including the new eight-band fully parametric frequency EQ; and an assortment taken from the 2017 Hybrid Library by Pro Sound Effects. A newly developed video engine replaces the former QuickTime-based engine.
