Yamaha Steinberg Networkable Recording System Makes AES Debut: ‘NU’ Components Added

NEW YORK—A joint collaboration between Yamaha and Steinberg, NUAGE will make its AES 2013 debut in the Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. booth #2623, at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City. A hardware and software system that adds the power of the Dante audio network to world-class recording, post production, live to tape broadcast, and house of worship recording for re-broadcast, NUAGE is a complete, flexible system that allows engineers to choose and combine components to perfectly match individual application and workflow requirements. The system is currently shipping, and more features have been added to those previously announced.

The first truly networkable recording system, NUAGE consists of hardware work surface components, sleek interface, comprehensive visual feedback, networkable audio interface units, and a software-based digital audio workstation. It offers advanced processing capabilities and superior sonic quality. The Yamaha control surface features a combination of fader and main control units allowing for various system configurations. At the core of NUAGE is Steinberg’s award winning Nuendo digital audio workstation software. Coupled with the power of Dante, this advanced production system provides mix engineers a truly synergistic studio solution. Dante audio networking provides unrestricted system design and expandability both in the studio and in situations where audio is to be shared with live mixing systems.

Yamaha has added two new components to NUAGE. The ADR Mode for the NUAGE Master allows the operator to quickly and easily enable the Nuendo 6 ADR Taker functionality on the Ncs500-CT to provide transport control for the Rehearse, Review and Record modes via the NUAGE Master Transport section. Insert Marker and Insert Cycle Marker buttons are conveniently assigned in the touch screen as well as marker information like Start/End points for cycle markers, Take No. (Number), Character Name, and Dialog. Cue Bus Control is editable from the touch sensitive encoders and the user can easily toggle the ADR functions to the user define buttons and back to the previous assigned functions. The “Marker” button in the numeric keypad section now toggles between “Marker ID” and “Take No.” for easy content location. User Assign Groups of 1-12 and 13-24 from the four banks can now be toggled to the User Define Keys.

The second new feature added is a Yamaha AD8HR mic preamp can now be controlled from the NUAGE Multi-Function Knobs when the “PRE” Button in pressed in the control section. HA Gain, HA Trim, HPF and 48V phantom power can be edited along with LC (Low Cut), HC (High Cut), and Digital Gain. The AD8HR connects to a PC or MAC via a serial connection and is configured in the NUAGE Workgroup Manager.

NUAGE modular architecture and network audio interface enable broad system flexibility. Two types of control surface units can be used individually or in combination, according to system needs. Three types of high-end audio interfaces are available, used individually or in combination for up to 128 channels. 16-channel analog, 16-channel digital, and 8-channel analog + 8-channel digital can be controlled at once with two encoders per channel, or all encoders can be mapped to one or two highlighted channels in the Channel Setting Mode. NUAGE I/O also features advanced JetPLL™ jitter reduction technology for extremely low jitter and superior AD/DA resolution.

NUAGE benefits lead to uncompromised product quality and include 32-bit/192 kHz support for superior sonic quality (Nuendo 6 supports sampling rates up to 384 kHz). Advanced audio interface DSP hardware offers “True Integrated Monitoring” for ultra-low-latency monitoring. The DSP surround processing capabilities provide all the essentials for state-of-the-art surround sound including speaker/level display adjustments and base management. The power of native system processing allows a large number of plug-ins to be used simultaneously across multiple channels/tracks. Nuendo Syncstation provides sample-accurate synchronization for audio and video.

A Dante Accelerator audio interface card can be installed in the computer running the Nuendo DAW to provide extra-low latency multi-channel audio data transfer capacity, advantageous when communicating with NUAGE I/O units. A secondary port can be used to provide redundant connections for failsafe reliability.

NUAGE provides intuitive operation and visual organization for enhanced efficiency. Any 24” monitor can be used with the system. The system incorporates the computer LCD displays for “Extensive Console View” channel strip extension, customizable Nuendo shortcuts that can be freely assigned to numerous User Assignable Keys, Touch Slider functionality for instant channel navigation, touch sensitive faders and encoders, Channel Name Display, and Channel Color Bar. A precision jog wheel supports accurate, error-free editing on the master section. Computers and monitors are not included in the system components.

The system’s space-saving keyboard/mouse editing capabilities as well as compact rack-mount dimensions round out the unique NUAGE system.

A basic NUAGE system has an MSRP of $18,000.
