Yamaha bundles Nuendo Live 3 with digital mixers

Yamaha is bundling Steinberg Nuendo Live 3 recording software with new RIVAGE PM5 and PM3, DM7, CL, QL and TF series digital mixers. 

Steinberg’s streamlined Nuendo Live multitrack digital recording software is designed especially for live recording engineers, production houses and rental companies.

Nuendo Live’s tight integration with Yamaha RIVAGE PM, DM7, CL and QL series mixers meaning channel names, markers and transport functions can be remotely controlled from the console. Nuendo Live 3 added several features which make the live recording process faster, more flexible and with even better audio quality.

In the live environment, it’s easy for a hardware USB eLicenser to be lost, damaged, stolen or accidentally knocked out of the recording computer. Nuendo Live 3 supports Steinberg Licensing, an account-based license management system which means this is no longer an issue.

A new Project Template Assistant offers a workflow where, instead of saving files as a dedicated template format, any Nuendo Live 3 project can be used as a template for the next recording. Nuendo Live 3 also offers support for Apple silicon and Arm processors. The audio engine has also been updated to the same as Cubase and Nuendo’s latest generation engines.

“The beauty of Nuendo Live is its simplicity – the sole focus is on reliability and quality, with no unnecessary features. With version 3, we’re bringing it up to par with the latest technologies, while also improving its performance and usability,” commented Luis Dongo, Senior Marketing Manager at Steinberg.

Thomas Hemery, Yamaha General Manager of Global Marketing and Sales, Professional Solutions Division added, “We are pleased to deliver the enhanced versatility and sound of Steinberg’s streamlined, state-of-the-art live recording solution. And with closer cooperation between Yamaha and Steinberg, which are both Yamaha Group brands, we are making the integration between Yamaha mixing consoles and Steinberg software even tighter.”
