Expanded Dolby Atmos and immersive audio


Nuendo 12’s new features make it a breeze to design for Dolby Atmos, Ambisonics, and other immersive audio systems. The new Dolby Atmos Setup Assistant drastically reduces the time it takes to convert existing projects into Dolby Atmos projects using an internal renderer; this renderer can also create binaural re-renders of Dolby Atmos content for simulated immersive audio on headphones. Neundo 12 also features support for Sound Particles’ Space Controller OSC mixing software, a streamlined Ambisonics to stereo binaural convertor with the ability to create complex custom monitoring chains, and, of course, classic Nuendo tools like Netflix-compliant sound optimization, Soundly Cloud Services, and the SuperVision metering plug-in.
