Hamburg, Germany (February 6, 2007) — Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH today announced an update to the Nuendo EuCon adapter module to version 3.2.2. The new version adds full MIDI functionality as well as numerous other enhancements, further empowering audio post professionals using Euphonix hardware to control Nuendo.
Version 3.2.2 of the Nuendo EuCon adapter adds control over MIDI tracks and channels including MIDI plug-in insert effects, as well as access to all elements of corresponding VST Instrument channels. Editing MIDI parts in the Project Window is now just as seamless as editing audio parts. MIDI notes can even be edited with help of all the many soft keys, smart switches and up to two jog dials on the Euphonix MC.
On top of MIDI support, the latest version includes many workflow enhancements. A set of additional preferences allows better organization in projects containing many tracks and the transport behaviour can now be adapted to suit user preference. The display of key Nuendo software parameters on the Euphonix hardware has been enhanced to allow even faster recording, editing and mixing with Nuendo on MC, System 5 MC or System 5 Hybrids.
“As one of the leaders in the development of MIDI production tools, this update was a logical step for Steinberg,” says Lars Baumann, Steinberg’s Senior Product Manager for Nuendo. “With MIDI technology in wide use, this update is a valuable extension to the EuCon adapter of the Nuendo Media Production System, which has proven to be a top-flight solution for recording, surround and post.” he continues.
Euphonix VP Marketing, Andrew Wild comments: “Nuendo operation with our consoles and controllers via the innovative EuCon protocol has been very popular with our clients, who are working on feature films, TV shows and music projects. This is a welcome update, especially the new MIDI implementation, as this brings the full power of the System 5 channel strips, with 8 knobs and TFT displays, to the Nuendo MIDI and instrument tracks. The integration of Nuendo with the MC, System 5-MC and the System 5 range of consoles is now at the point where the hardware and software work as one — it’s a very impressive recording, editing and mixing environment.”
