Steinberg has released version 6.5.35 of Nuendo, the audio post-production software.
Besides extensive product maintenance for the AAF import and export filter as well as new AAF functionality, this update provides full support for PROXIMITY, the upcoming game audio surround technology by IOSONO/Barco.
PROXIMITY game audio technology
IOSONO PROXIMITY is a new audio technology standard that “raises the gaming experience to the next level of realism”. PROXIMITY ensures a highly accurate localization of game sounds by bringing sound effects and dialog into the inner circle of a surround field. Sounds come closer with depth, extending into the room from the speakers all the way to the listener’s position. For sound designers, PROXIMITY is a powerful new tool in their content creation toolbox, realizing great effects with only little effort. Through the integration into Nuendo, PROXIMITY technology seamlessly slips into existing workflows for game sound design.
Fully integrated with Nuendo 6.5.35
Nuendo 6.5.35 provides full support for the PROXIMITY technology by updating the integrated surround panner Anymix Pro to the Anymix Pro PROXIMITY version. As soon as Anymix Pro is used with a PROXIMITY bus inside Nuendo, it turns into a command center for PROXIMITY game sound production by offering PROXIMITY effects and control parameters.
IOSONO has announced AAX support for Anymix Pro, the surround-mixing plug-in for music and post-production.
The successful surround mixing plug-in is now supporting Avid’s new AAX Native Format, ensuring a smooth workflow with new time-saving features for users of Avid’s popular digital audio workstation Pro Tools 11.
Anymix Pro AAX now also features support for Avid control surfaces via EUCON (System 5 series), Avid C|24 and ICON. The update also includes new automatable parameters and shortcuts for a better workflow. “We have received great feedback on Anymix Pro, our users have been especially happy with time saving tools like the distant-dependent feature as well as the high-quality upmixing functions. We’re always trying to incorporate user feedback into our software and so we’re happy to now offer the much awaited AAX support,” says Katja Lehmann, Marketing Manager for IOSONO.
Anymix Pro AAX 64-bit for Mac and Windows is available to purchase for 299 EUR. The update will be free for all existing Anymix Pro customers already using the VST/RTAS version.

IOSONO has launched a Christmas Sale for its Anymix Pro surround mixing plug-in for Windows and Mac.
Anymix Pro is the ideal solution for an easy, yet precise creation of surround mixes. It comes with a broad selection of up- and downmix preferences and individual panning features tailored to be used in post-production, broadcast, music and game sound design.
Anymix Pro doesn’t only redistribute audio material to a certain output configuration, but gives the mixer full control over important parameters, turning the mono or stereo mix into a realistic surround scenario. The included surround panning mode offers deep control of channel positioning within the surround field, including distant-dependant adjustment of loudness and timbre for a smooth workflow.
The Anymix Pro plug-in for Windows and Mac (VST/RTAS) is available to purchase for 219 EUR until December 31st, 2012 (regular 299 EUR).
IOSONO has announced the collaboration with leading pro-audio manufacturer, Steinberg Media Technologies, a subsidiary of the Yamaha Corporation.
IOSONO’s industry-acclaimed plug-in Anymix Pro is an integral part of Nuendo 6, Steinberg’s newly announced version of its renowned post and audio production system. Nuendo 6 with Anymix Pro onboard will be released in the first quarter of 2013.
“We really enjoyed working with a professional team of specialists, who have exceeded our expectations,” remarks product marketing manager for Steinberg Timo Wildenhain on the joint collaboration. “Anymix Pro is an awesome plug-in for panning and upmixing – a perfect choice for Nuendo 6, the world’s most advanced surround mixing DAW,” he continues.
Anymix Pro instantly adjusts loudness and EQ settings automatically once the signal is moved within the listening space. Also on board Anymix Pro are high-quality upmix features, making it easy to upmix stereo channels to 8.1 surround or backwards by keeping the naturalness of the original sound. In addition, Anymix Pro can be highly configured according to individual needs. Anymix Pro directly integrates into the new mix console of Nuendo 6.
“We’re really excited that Steinberg has recognized the potential of the IOSONO technology, and we’re proud to be a part of the most powerful surround-production environment available today,” comments Olaf
Stepputat, CEO at IOSONO.
Anymix Essential and Anymix Pro will continue to be available as stand-alone products to be used with all digital audio workstations supporting VST / RTAS. The plug-in will be further developed by IOSONO, as Robert Steffens, the company’s director of software development, states: “The feedback we received from audio professionals regarding Anymix was extremely positive. We’ll continue to create high-quality
surround mixing solutions for our customers, and we’re already working on Anymix Pro 2, supporting Avid’s new AAX format.”
