Nuendo has been my long time life partner and has always done for me what nobody else can.. But I seriously might start cheating with Pro Tools 10. I just played back 108 contantly active simultaneos voices from my RAM cache, with active plugins and bussing, while re-recording 5.1 and LtRt to disk, while also playing back DnXhd video using only PT10+cptk only on a 64bit native windows system. No hardware, no fancy DSP, plenty of run on sentances.
Didn't even flinch
Here's a spot I did with Expansion team last week for the History Channel's "Civil War Week". All of the slow motion SFX were tailor made using my new sound design favorite, Alchemy.
Work has started on DIY Network's new series, "Yard Attack". The stars of the show up at your house and make over your backyard in just a few hours. I'm going to know a ton about landscaping when it's all said and done. Cool show. Long hours and tight turn arounds. All the work is coming from AVID media composer as MXF/AAF and is imported into Nuendo 5 where the edit and mix all takes place. This is the first full season of a tv series I've worked on. I'm happy.
This was a very cool project where we follow Bill Laswell's band Method of Defiance through their sound check routine. The trick was to slowly tighten the mix over time while the band works out the kinks and tries new ideas to get ready for showtime. Going from rough to polished while making sure it all sounds good in the theater was a challenge.. apparently we pulled it off :)
Here's a cool little flash app someone made for me.
Takes about a year to load.. but you can view a clip from Daniel Brothers' Big Fat Lazy Sun and use the arrow to switch between the final master audio and what it sounded like when it came in the door.
I'm making the move to Nuendo 5 as my primary edit/mix platfrom. Protools will of course still be available, but Nuendo has really taken the lead with it's flexibilty. They have even inluded features that make it easier to get in and out of protools which had always been an issue before. Above is a video showing just a few of these features and if you've ever cut audio for hours on end... enjoy
