Nuendo 5.5 update unveiled

August 1, 2011


Sharp like a razor — Steinberg is proud to unveil the Nuendo 5.5 update, the fastest and most precise audio post-production system available. With more than 20 new and enhanced features in the areas of audio editing and mixing, Nuendo 5.5 represents the biggest free update in the ten-year product history.

“Nuendo 5.5 is a must-have for audio editing and mixing professionals,” comments Timo Wildenhain, Steinberg’s product marketing manager for Nuendo. “And I’m also happy to announce that Nuendo 5.5 is free of charge for registered Nuendo 5 customers,” Wildenhain continues.

Nuendo 5.5 introduces a variety of advanced multitrack editing features that will make audio editing even more efficient. Highlights include a time-saving take comping system and phase-stable audio quantization across multiple tracks. The new élastique Pro time-stretching and pitch-shifting algorithm, improved automation data editing, enhanced offline processing and extended compatibility with Pro Tools audio files further enhance Nuendo’s excellent performance. Plus, the 5.5 version also adds new creative tools and functions such as the VST Amp Rack plug-in and extended Quick Control functionality.

The optional 5.5 update for the Nuendo Expansion Kit (NEK) features the groundbreaking VST Expression 2 technology and the HALion Sonic SE workstation alongside superior groove production tools such as LoopMash 2 and Groove Agent ONE 1.2.  

Since Nuendo 5.5 and NEK 5.5 are built on a refined code base, both updates are available as full download versions. Registered customers can download the update free of charge from the Steinberg website.

For the first time ever, Nuendo 5.5 is also available as a free, downloadable trial version.* Nuendo 5.5 Trial can be tested without restrictions for a period of 400 hours.
