Perhaps preparing some empty "Receiving" tracks Named Dialog, EFX, Foley, Footsteps, Music, etc at the start of the mix ... then Audition a clip and right clicking on it to see a "Move to Track..." and select a "Receiving " track name. The region would then pop up to an empty space on an appropriate track. This would get similar clips grouped much quicker than Cut/Paste or Dragging with less chance of sync slip.

Great idea! I would happy to have such option too.
Also following option (it's already exist in ProTools) will save time: replacing edited file with other channel from multi recorded file (usually it's useful during working with Cantar files). It is also available with right clicking on file should be replaced and choosing desired file.

Question is Q3 or Q4...

anyway I´d like some hype teaser now... at least throw us a "leaked" blurry screenshot... anything!! :)

Some speculation...
I thought they´ll probably present it on Popkomm, but the show was cancelled.

Or they present it on Musikmesse China...
http://www.musikmesse-china.com/
but SB doesn´t show up on the exhibitors list :(

Could be they announce it only on web without a trade show.. who knows...

I'd like to see a complete overhaul and cleanup of windows management including elegant docking, logical choices when using zooming features, and better parallel tracking from window type to window type.

One thing I'd like to see is better handling of simple windows management on PC, some of which I've covered in this thread. Apparently this is not a problem on Macs, so why is it so on PC? The whole docking mechanism needs to be overhauled so windows snap and stay in place.

But there's other "silly" stuff. For example, if I have a selected track on the project page and I decided to vertically zoom all tracks, why doesn't the selected track stay centered on my screen? Currently I have to keep interrupting the zoom to chase after it, or do the zoom size I want and go fetch it from wherever it's disappeared to.

Or why is it if I select a track on the project screen and move to a different unlocked workspace with a mixer, that selected track isn't automatically centered for me to work on? Wouldn't it make sense to automatically center display selected tracks from workspace to workspace?

How about an auto-hide/unhide that would allow the user to select a group output and have a command that automatically displays a mixer with only the member tracks connected to that group without the user having to configure anything. This would be a very useful thing to me.

The mixer track hiding/unhiding mechanism is a powerful one. I've just started using it recently but I'd like to see preset selection as an option for external control from control devices. I don't understand why it's been omitted from that long list of options. Is there a problem with it?

New features, new synths, and new processors are nice, but I'd like to see some effort and time spent on some of the nuts and bolts of display and its smoothness and usability. The elements are all there; all it needs is a little time, effort and a little inspiration. It's certainly not as glamorous as a lot of other stuff, but it would certainly make my day to day a lot more pleasant and give the app a good professional make over.

I'd like to see a complete VST plugin sandbox shell that could completely contain any plugin instance opened in it.

That way any crash, bad behavior, etc. would only be reported as a failed plugin, rather than take down the entire project without notice.

Something that is bothering me everytime I edit for videos:
I'd like to have an option to give the fx-processing of events a "handle".
E.g., when I compress or normalize an event it only does it to the visible range.
If you enlarge the event to manage a better fade in/out you need to process the little piece extra.
This is a nuisance when repeatedly necessary... and it often is ...

Other than that:
please, enlarge the fader area for FX sends and other buttons... It is a pain to fiddly aim
with the mouse cursor for the millimeter areas.

I'd like custom surround capability, like Pro Tools and even Reaper has. I don't want Steinberg to tell me how I must have my configuration, and I don't want to have to jump throguh some very complex hoops to try to fool Nuendo into doing it my way.

Wait, can't this already be accomplished? I must be misunderstanding something basic then (or what you're saying)...

I'd love it if the networking features could be based on some sort of Nuendo-specific login-ID rather than machine specific (as I believe it currently is set up). If one did this one could easily separate different parts of the job, dialog editing, sfx editing, music editing etc into different projects and have a really easy way to update the main mix project. So rather than having to swap project, do changes, created files, swap back, import files, one could use the sync feature... but on the same computer. Way smoother and should only require a different way of authenticating a user.

I'd add that this should be compatible con Cubase. I work with people that can't afford having a Nuendo just for do some editing and recording. Opening this to Cubase users, will increase the value of the platform.

Any kind of realtime collaboration would be great, for example, remote recording with realtime listening, without Skype or old RDSI connections: you listen (and maybe record in low quality) in realtime what's happening in another studio and, when finished, then sync the final audio.

Thought of a few more after setting up a surround mix today.

1 - A way to save surround panner presets. Currently, neither track presets or mixer presets retain this information at all and it is likewise impossible to save a preset within the panner itself.
How hard can this be to implement?

2 - Better differentiation between mixer presets & track presets.
What - exactly - is the difference in the real world (and auditioning in real time does not count, as it is almost unusable with any but the stock plugins)

1. Import session data. The current way of interchange of data and settings between different Nuendo projects is ancient and cumbersome. See 'Import Session Data' in protools, if you can do it better then go ahead, otherwise use that as a perfectly flexible solution.

2. Proper dynamic Mix/Edit grouping. PLEASE....its been so long coming...the current folder track way is a hack/patch solution that is seriously handicapped....just get it in and make it work elegantly with.......

3. ....PLAYLISTS!I know I know you invented lanes and that is working quite well now....but for multitrack sources and doing multiple takes on whole input lists it is messy and crazy for the GUI....i know about the stacked takes thing too...it is messy and confusing and you can 'lose' takes too easily. Playlists can be limiting sometimes but can be a very simple and elegant way of managing complicated takes. It can't hurt to have it as an option.

There is many more. But those are my big three. Same ones I have been talking about on here for over 6 years now :) I feel like a really really really old broken record.

While we're dreaming I'll just reiterate what I've said for a while so that Timo and the others have even more opportunities to not say that they've heard the request (a great idea):

1. Give the user control over more than just the plug-in while the plug-in is open.

Exactly what it sounds like. When the plug-in is open I can now only work on the plug-in itself. There are cases when this is not desirable.

For example: If I'm working on a project I may elect to do de-noising offline rather than realtime. Using iZotope RX, I'd want to select two separate pieces of audio in my project - the first being a piece of room tone only for the plug-in to "learn" the noise profile, and the second being the piece of audio I actually want to process. This isn't possible at the moment.

2. Don't close the plug-in automatically after processing.

Exactly what it sounds like. Expanding on the example above: Once I'm done with one set of files I want to move quickly to the next set that have a different room tone/noise profile.

Did anyone use Aphex Aural Exciter? I know that it does't concern Nuendo developing but it would be great to see this plug-in not only in PT TDM.
I agree with
2 - +10dB on the faders - makes translating from Alsihad very hard with the current +6dB travel.
3 - Better metering, with the latest loudness metering as well as PPM/VU behaviour.

I would prefer even +12db to avoid problem with PT to Nuendo converting. And good metering eliminate the need for
using third part plug-ins like IXL metering which is very good but it useful on master track and not convenient as ordinary track metering.
+1 for +12 dB on the fader!

***********

Like I suggested several times already, my biggest wish for a completely new Nuendo-feature would be the possibility to switch the conventional waveform-display in one or several tracks to an FFT-based sonogram (a.k.a spectrogram). Computers are fast enough nowadays. There's so much more information available with this kind of displaying audio, especially during heavy edits: You can easily spot clicks, noise, hum, melodic and/or harmonic progressions, any kind of spectral changes, etc. etc.

... ideally, we would even get some kind of spectral editing, like in Algorithmix' "ReNOVAtor" or "iZotope's "RX".

***********


BTW - my VST-Exciter of choice:

Image

Part of the Vienna Suite bundle.

... yes, I _am_ biased. ;-)

I agree about the spectrogram

My concept is a little different though of what id like to see in Nuendo, maybe *Steinberg* can do both.

I have seen Spectral Analyzer hardware from as early as the 1970's which had a 30 band eq under the display screen.

If you can see the wavelengths directly above their eq band/post you can repair any problem frequencies by pulling that frequency down.

For quite some time I have been hoping to find a plugin that does this.

I had another thread about this elsewhere, but if this will get the developers to see it then so be it.

Id like to get an idea on who would agree on this idea I have for Nuendo.

During my editing process, i use my draw tool to lower the volume peaks on my waveforms.

What I would like to see is a horizontal guide that can be placed on any one of my tracks at a height (or level) of my choosing. This guide can be set a mid level peak and I could then manipulate my waveforms so they all peak at the same level wheteher im using the draw tool or slicing each side of a peaked waveform and sliding it down.

So basically this guide would need to be apart of the track, and not a part of the event, this way, volume peaks, regardless of how many events are on the track all can be set to the same level.

Adobe Photoshop has guides similar to this that can be drug out of the rulers.

Does anyone else here think that this would be a helpful addition to Nuendo?
