Yamaha has introduced software version 1.8 for the NUAGE digital audio workstation system designed for commercial production applications ranging from audio post-production to music recording and mixing.
Specifically, v1.8 provides full support for the VST Multi-Panner 3D surround plug-in included with Steinberg’s Nuendo 7.1 DAW. The VST Multi-Panner interface is faithfully reproduced on the NUAGE master touch screen, providing an enhanced environment for Dolby Atmos surround production and bringing NUAGE up to speed with the fast-growing immersive surround format.
The VST Multi-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 progresses, the operator can switch between bed and object modes without having to redo the panning.
Top View and Rear View displays make it easy to visualize the positions of audio images within the sound stage in three dimensions. A comprehensive selection of panning trajectory presets are also included to enhance the sound design process.
NUAGE version 1.8 sofware can be downloaded from the Yamaha Pro Audio website free of charge.
A Dolby Rendering and Mastering Unit (RMU) and Nuendo RMU Connector for Dolby Atmos are required for object mixing. Go here for more details.
