Re: Nuendo 6.5?


Nuendo 6.5 is going to be released in beginning of Q2 2014. Beside all features already revealed in Cubase 7.5 it will get even more post-pro / surround mixing relevant functions, such as a professional Bass Management. In terms of development time, it simply takes longer to bring all the additional features into the upcoming Nuendo 6.5.

We may also be able to correct some more issues in terms of GUI, but in general it will be the status of Cubase 7.5.
Key Command/mixer issue will (most likely) be fixed.

Re: Nuendo 6.5?

- Opportunity to fire up mixer shortcuts (from keyboard + or midi) when working and mixing in projectwindow! The need to click with mouse into mixer before is inadmissible.


we are aware of this, however it is not at all a "bug", but a way of designing window handling. This approach follows
the standard logic how operating systems handle active windows. Thanks to the feedback in this forum as well as additional feedback we've received via other channels, we've clearly recognized that this behaviour needs to be changed to a different way of window handling. It requires a re-write of the window handling logic, which is already scheduled, but this will require some dev time.

There are lots of tutorials on Cubase around, but i don't see any on Nuendo.

Two questions:-
1) If I buy Nuendo 6, would the Cubase 6 tutorials help me with the music Production aspects of Nuendo, or can I follow those on Cubase 7.5?

2) Are there any tutorials on the Nuendo-specific aspects, to which I will have access, once I purchase Nuendo?



in addition, you can also go to the official Nuendo product website:

Other resources (still Nuendo 5):

Regarding the music features, yes, you can use the Cubase videos as orientation for the music production
workflow with Nuendo. (Please note you need to have the NEK option to have access to all music features).
