I prefer Nuendo in the majority of ways.
To me, the things I miss most from PT are:
> The way you can see much more info *at once* as far as what's on each channel, in the PROJECT window (this saves huge amounts of time).
> The floating fader feature, per channel (a highly useful tool).
> Import session data (looks like this is coming to Nuendo...this is HUGE!)
> To me the PT mixer looks cleaner and more professional, but that's just personal opinion.
That's exactly what I am talking about. I can not work in PT, it is just "not mine". But these 4 features (since we have beat detective style editing only these 4) I miss very hard! Nuendo would be perfect with features like these.
The comment regarding Chevrolets and German cars does not make any sence to me - nobody wants Nuendo to be like PT, but it would be AWESOME if Nuendo could have some features which are actually better in PT. Sorry to say that. This is not a Nuendo critique - it is meant as a suggestion.
It just struck me (not really) how much info you can get from those two windows in PT. Both in the mixer and the project window, without hovering over and/or clicking, you can get a great amount of info just by swiping your eyes across the screen/screens.
I can see what Brandy wants, especially when stretching the project page across 3 screens. Then the info provided (horizontally) for each track seems to show about 80% of the regular mixer channels, if not more.
PS. For every move Steinberg does, the Pro Tools mixer looks more and more appealing ;)
and yes - that is exactly what I meant. I am used now to the new Nuendo Mixer and GUI wise I am fine but still too much clicky clicky - and when I look at that PT project page I would be able to stay 80% of the time in the project window - usually during mixing it is (for me, here) not like in old days - sitting on a mixing desk.. ballancing the whole thing..
80% of the time I spend with adjusting elements... lets have that short leadguitar/speach/instrument in the second prechorus... you just did some editing to the event in the project - maybe a fade out.. then you want to adjust something.. a plugin, a send... you can switch to the mixer, re-locating that track... or you can use the track inspector (click click click) - but then you have ONLY that track - no way to check/adjust some other elements in that part as well, while just beeing in the "right mood"
