I'm thinking to do the crossgrade from Cubase to Nuendo.
I would like to know if Nuendo has the same features of Cubase ( vsti compatibility, fx etc).
I'm aware that Nuendo has more post prod/ vodeo features, but i would like to produce music in Nuendo like I do in Cubase.
Thank you !
My understanding is, that Nuendo 8 does not have all the features Cubase has, however V-10 will be the start of bringing them closer. Over (a short?) time, the only difference between the two will be, that Nuendo will have the (high end) Post Production/Gaming features, along with the Music Production stuff.
Just a slight correction to this -- Nuendo 8.3 doesn't have all the features of Cubase 10, but Nuendo 8.3 has all the features of Cubase 9.5. In the past, there has been a lag time of 6-9 (or sometimes even more) months when a feature introduced in Cubase doesn't make it to Nuendo until Nuendo's next big update. Cubase, in a way, (and I hate to say it), has been sort of a testing ground for some features before they move over to Nuendo -- and some folks have the opinion that this has actually been a good thing in terms of the longer period of stability testing for those specific features. I don't know if there's any factual evidence to support that idea, but at least it mollified some people's frustration of the "leapfrog" situation that was going on between Cubase/Nuendo for the last many years.
Anyway, like GTBannah said, with Nuendo 10, Steinberg is trying to close the gap significantly, and they have been synchronizing the development schedules of Cubase and Nuendo so we don't have to wait as long. Ultimately, they say this will help with bugfixes, etc., and essentially be a net positive. I'll take them at their word on that. So people who have been maintaining/updating both Cubase and Nuendo licensees won't need to do that any more. They can just stick with Nuendo if they want, without worrying about a long gap between significant features. Who knows what the lag time will really be in the future, but from what has been stated by Steinberg so far, it will be greatly reduced. Personally, I think it's a good move, and I'm optimistic about their plans.
