Steinberg releases Nuendo 4.2 Update

New update now available with Advanced Integration with MR816 CSX/X and CC121, new workflow enhancements and more

Hamburg, September 10 2008 – Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH is pleased to announce a new update to its Nuendo 4 Advanced Audio and Post Production System. Nuendo 4.2 and NEK 4.2 are available now as a download for all registered customers from www.steinberg.net.

“We’re very excited to offer full support for our recently released hardware products, especially the new MR816 CSX/X Advanced Integration interfaces”, comments Timo Wildenhain, Steinberg’s Product Marketing Manager for Nuendo. "Although the focus of the new update is mainly on product maintenance, some improvements to accelerate the Nuendo 4 workflow are also included. This update reiterates our ongoing commitment to product quality and stability, while supporting groundbreaking new technologies such as Advanced Integration", he continues.

Nuendo 4.2 extends the support for external hardware. The new update offers full support for all Advanced Integration functionality with the new MR816 CSX and MR816 X Advanced Integration DSP Studio hardware by Steinberg. Among the features available with Nuendo are full user interface integration, True Integrated Monitoring™ and the use of VST3 plug-ins as DSP FX in the Nuendo mixer. Steinberg’s CC121 Advanced Integration Controller is also fully supported, integrating fully with Nuendo. Nuendo 4.2 also offers enhanced support for Yamaha MOTIF XS series and the KX USB Music Studio series are now even more tightly integrated than before.

Nuendo 4.2.2 includes a range of improvements to enhance stability, as well as several workflow enhancements. These include new key commands for the MediaBay sound management system, new synchronization options and a range of additional minor enhancements. Nuendo 4.2 also includes support for VST Sound™, a new and improved universal media management format. VST Sound™ is a fundamental part of VST3 and integrates media such as audio and video files as well as plug-in and track presets directly into the Nuendo MediaBay. The Nuendo Expansion Kit also receives additional content with the new update, including the new Yamaha S90ES Grand Piano.
