Re: Nuendo Video Playback Colour

A solution might be the gamma, or black level settings on your video card. If you have an Nvidia card, there is a menu called "video colour settings" inside Nvidia control panel where you can set a gamma limitation defined as "dynamic range"

Re: Nuendo Video Playback Colour

I asked about this a while ago. It was stated here that the new video engine ignores Gamma settings in Quicktimes to conserve cpu. So what you are seeing is a gamma shift. Oddly enough, Nuendo on the mac seems to display the video properly (though I haven't tested thoroughly). On Windows it does not. Lately I've been using Quicktimes with the Avid codecs to get around this and they work as expected. You can download the codecs for free from the Avid site.

Re: Best sample rate conversion for 48 --> 88.2?

Hey guys, I'm doing a project that's at 88.2k, and the vocals that were sent to me are 48k (both are 24 bit). What would you recommend as the best way to assure the best possible quality conversion? Use Nuendo to convert the actual files in the Pool? Or another way? I've done 88.2 -- 44.1 and vice-versa before, but am wondering if there are different considerations since 88.2 and 48 are not multiples of each other. Thanks!

The conversions can be done in whole numbers - it just takes 2 processes instead of one is all (details below).
How to approach depends on the projects & assets - if the whole project is at 48 and there are 88.2 assets to import, I would first back up project to a new folder, then swap sample rates & convert when asked - going up, we are padding existing files with zeroes so no harm, no foul. Incidentally we did this for fun last year after completing a 5.1 album mix supplied at 24/48. We created new copies of each project by backup to new folder, and then reset SR to 96KHz and allowed Nuendo to SRC up and simply re-ran the exports using exactly the same plugins, automation & mix - identical except we upsampled this one. We all heard a definite difference in the results very similar to the difference between 15IPS tape & 30IPS tape but not quite the same. The 48K versions had a slightly fatter & warmer low end whereas the 96K had better detail and superior imaging across the soundfield. This was unexpected - we thought we would hear a difference, but for it to be so pronounced was very interesting (although it must be said the mix was from stems (8 to 16 per track) that had been heavily processed (which is why we used them so as to keep the same sound as the stereo mix) before we got to them so we used very little in the way of effects apart from a few reverbs/delays and some sculpting/shaping EQ. But I digress.....

As posted above, R8Brain is superb and it's big brother is even better.
Both only use whole numbers to convert by means of the GCD (Greatest Common Denominator) as follows:
48000/300 = 160
88200/300 = 294
48000*294 = 14112000/160 = 88200
(The denominators always created by dividing the sample rates by 300. This gives you the factors needed for the conversion. Then take the first value & multiply by the second denominator and divide the result by the first one.
I think most of the decent SRC work this way these days but this website is always revealing, I find - I wonder if the built-in SRC have got any better since v6/7 releases?)

Hope this helps

Re: autotune 7 crashing cubase


after talking to a few people and doing some more testing, this seems to be a memory issue due to auto tune being badly coded from the 32 to 64 bit update. the plugin is basically still acting like an x86 plugin so crashes when the 32bit ram celling is reached.

after further testing reaper also exhibited the same issue as does studio 1.

I'm going to get on the case with Antares as it's their problem.

Color palette

Based on the here they are reproduced for Nuendo.

IMPORTANT: Please backup your preferences directory just in case.

To use:

- Open an editor like Notepad++ and copy/paste the colors you want from the spreadsheet into this new document.
Note: When copying from Sheets there will be extra "" added due to the carriage returns in formatting so we need to "clean" this copy/paste.
- Do a search and replace for the following:

"<item> replace with <item>
</item>" replace wit h </item>
"" replace with "

- Ensure Nuendo is closed
- Open Defaults.xml which is located in C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Nuendo 6_64
- Do a search for a color name you know (e.g. Color 1) and you should find your color section with each color enclosed in <item> tags e.g.

<string name="Name" value="Color 1" wide="true"/>
<int name="Color" value="4293356362"/>

- Paste the code between the item tags from your clean Notepad++ color document into your Defaults.xml for the colors you want. You can either append existing colors or delete what's there and add a new color palette of your choosing.
- Launch Nuendo. At this point the program defaults will now have your modified color palette so to use them you will need to choose to "Load Program Defaults to Current Set" from your color palette menu.
