The integrated hardware and software approach introduced with the Yamaha/Steinberg integration in the Nuage system helps to significantly enhance efficiency for everyday tasks, boost studio productivity as well as output quality. The latest update to the Nuage operating system, Version 1.8, provides full support for the 3D surround MultiPanner included with Steinberg’s Nuendo 7.1 DAW. The MultiPanner interface is faithfully reproduced on the Nuage Master touch screen, providing a optimized environment for Dolby Atmos surround production and bringing Nuage up to speed with today’s fastest-growing immersive surround formats.
The panner makes it possible to work on a 9.1 channel bed mix and an object mix with up to 118 audio objects via a single display. As a project progress, the operator can switch between bed and object modes without having to re-do any panning operations. Top View and Rear View displays make it easy to visualize the positions of audio images within the sound stage in three dimensions, while a comprehensive selection of panning trajectory presets is also provided for smooth, efficient sound design.
The software update Nuage Version 1.8 can be downloaded from the Yamaha Pro Audio web site free of charge. A Dolby Rendering and Mastering Unit (RMU) and Nuendo RMU Connector for Dolby Atmos are required for object mixing. Further details can be found at www.steinberg.net/dolbyatmos
