Las Vegas, NV (June 26, 2014)—Dog & Pony Studios in Las Vegas recently installed one of the first Yamaha Steinberg Nuage DAW systems in the U.S. Now that RSPE Audio Solutions in Toluca Lake, CA has installed the system, all three production studios at Dog & Pony are running Steinberg Nuendo 6.07 and house a Yamaha MSP7 5.1 speaker monitor setup.
Dog & Pony Studios in Las Vegas has been in business for 11 years with its primary focus on audio post, sound design, composition and audio for games. Clients include MGM Resorts, Caesars Entertainment, Skechers, and Aristocrat Technologies, to name a few.
“I first learned about the Nuage system on social media, and that followed with a demo by RSPE,” states owner John McClain. “It took just the three or four hours of the demo to know that Nuage was a great fit for our facility. The first thing that strikes me about Nuage is the ability to forgo use of the mouse and keyboard which, to me, is a huge advantage and the ‘holy grail’ of how a controller should work. The build quality of the system is quite obviously very good.”
McClain said that his number one feature on Nuage is its ergonomic layout: “From editing and sound design to mixing and post, almost any function needed is available from the work surface. My favorite feature about Nuendo has always been the number of ways you can solve a problem and the ability to design your own workflow, key commands, etc. to fit your own needs. With Nuage, the Yamaha and Steinberg design engineers continued that openness with many ways to set up Nuage to fit your own workflow. The support from the company has been fantastic; they are very focused on the end user and open to suggestions for future product enhancements.”
