At this week’s NAB 2014 show in Las Vegas, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems (booth C2143) has announced version 1.5 software of the NUAGE advanced production system, which will be available in May via free download.
The new version will allow remote control of R Series audio interface head amplifiers from NUAGE Fader/Master control surfaces. In addition to providing a broader selection of I/O options for NUAGE systems, the software also allows Yamaha CL Series digital console inputs to be shared via a Dante network for significant system expansion capability.
Although NUAGE already allows switching between up to three different DAWs, with v1.5 the “NUAGE PT Bridge” driver for Avid Pro Tools control gains OSX 10.9 compatibility so that Pro Tools running on Mac platforms is fully supported.
Also, adding Quick Control to the NUAGE Master unit, specified parameters can be assigned to the multi-function display so the user has even greater customization control. The NUAGE Master unit now has the ability to instantly access a wide range of VST instruments from the display and knobs for more efficient, effective sound crafting. The multi-function knobs will also provide as much as 512 times finer control than has been available in the Fine Mode.
“All of the powerful refinements in NUAGE v1.5 add up to enhanced efficiency and improved workflow for end users,” states Marc Lopez, marketing manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems. “With ongoing feedback from the field, NUAGE will continue to evolve as the new standard for DAW system performance.”
Launched in 2012, the NUAGE system provides tight DAW software integration, exceptional operability, modular architecture, and Dante networking capability for audio post-production and recording facilities.
