Nuendo 7 Crossgrade from Cubase


Come aboard Nuendo 7 now and experience unique features for TV and film post-production, dialog recording and game audio production.


If you are a Cubase user and you want to expand your business to any of those fields besides music production, you can now save your original investment and crossgrade to Nuendo 7, the most complete solution for any kind of audio work.

The Nuendo Expansion Kit (NEK)* is also included in this crossgrade, which means that all music creation tools and features from Cubase are available in the Nuendo media production platform to ensure full compatibility with your Cubase projects.

All Cubase (Pro) versions from Cubase 4 onward can be crossgraded to Nuendo 7 + NEK.

*Note that the current NEK 7 corresponds to the music features of Cubase Pro 8. Features new to Cubase 8.5 and Cubase 9 are currently neither included in this crossgrade nor will they be available in Nuendo 7. Cubase Elements and Artist versions are not eligible for crossgrade.
