There are many different DAW software packages out there, but not all of created equally. Pro Tools seemed to be, at one time, the only option available. However, Steinberg got in the game fairly early, and they’ve done a lot to their Nuendo package so that Nuendo 5 is almost perfect.

Nuendo 5 is a major upgrade in the DAW package. One of the best things about it is that it’s backward compatible. It’s very easy to open any files created with a previous version of Nuendo without any problems. All the preferences, templates, and plug-ins can also be transferred from previous versions, so you don’t have to spend any time going over all of those and resetting them to your liking.
There are a number of new plug-ins in Nuendo 5, but of course it does include all of the plug-ins of previous versions. One of the new additions is a number of plug-ins that handle high-quality VST 3. There’s also a convolution reverb plug-in called REVerence. Then there’s Pitch Driver, a harmony processor. These are just a few of the many great plug-ins that are now available in Nuendo 5.
What else is new with Neundo 5? If you want to view your tracks while mixing, you can turn on the mixer’s Waveform view. Another addition is the Surround Panner that can routate the whole surround field and has completely automated functions (all of which can be set to manual if you want direct control). If you network your system and want sharing, Neundo 5 has many great tools for you. You can share all of your content from the Media Bay, and multiple people can work on one project at once.
Many of the new features are designed with the production guidelines set down by record companies and the NARAS Producers and Engineers Wing. These make it very simple to create projects that follow these guidelines. All of these new additions and many more combine to create a software package that is certainly worth purchasing if you can afford it—the one major downside to Neundo 5 is that it’s $2,300 (or $325 for the upgrade from Neundo 4). That is a bit pricy, but it’s certainly worth it.
