Steinberg has released the latest version of its intuitive live recording solution, which delivers maximum reliability and great results, helping users to capture the perfect recording of any performance.

Building on the success of its predecessors, Nuendo Live 3 adds several key features which make the live recording process faster, more flexible and with even better audio quality.

Nuendo Live 3 supports Steinberg Licensing, an account-based license management system which doesn’t require an external dongle. 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 during the show. Steinberg Licensing means this is no longer an issue, while also offering the advantage of working offline, allowing easier setup of recording sessions in advance.

The new Project Template Assistant offers a simplified 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. For example, if an artist is playing several shows, the setup from recording the first one can quickly and easily be saved as a new project for the next.

Nuendo Live 3 also offers native support for Apple silicon and Arm processors, taking full advantage of the efficiency and processing power of current Mac computers without the risk of glitches or CPU overload. The audio engine has also been updated and is now the same as Cubase and Nuendo’s latest generation engines. Optimized to work with the latest processor types, this and a new user interface with HiDPi support take Nuendo Live to a new level of efficiency and ease of use.

Senior Marketing Manager Luis Dongo says:

“With version 3, we’re bringing Nuendo Live up to par with current technologies and improving its performance and usability. The beauty of Nuendo Live is its simplicity — the sole focus is on reliability and quality, with no unnecessary features. That’s been our goal with Nuendo Live since its conception and that’s what this new version aims to continue delivering.”
