Buena Park, CA (August 3, 2016)—Yamaha’s NUAGE—a DAW system largely aimed at commercial production applications—has just hit software version 1.8. The new edition 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 reproduced on the NUAGE Master touch screen, providing an environment for Dolby Atmos surround production and bringing NUAGE up to speed with the 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 help users to visualize the positions of audio images within the sound stage in three dimensions. A selection of panning trajectory presets is also provided to aid sound design.
NUAGE Version 1.8 can be downloaded from the Yamaha Pro Audio website free of charge.
