Steinberg has announced the release of a new version of its award-winning audio post-production software for film, TV, game audio and immersive sound.

With a strong emphasis on dialogue recording and editing, plus many other exciting new features and enhancements, Nuendo 12 literally gives recorded sound a new voice.

First revealed in March, Steinberg today announces the immediate availability of its latest, much-anticipated media production system, Nuendo 12, featuring an array of tools and powerful processes that meet every professional demand.

The twelfth version of Nuendo has a clear focus on speech, it being the most essential element of voice overs, dubbing and dialogue for games, movies, and television. Many of Nuendo’s new features and improvements not only ensure that dialogue is clearly heard but are especially designed for sound designers and post-production studios working in this domain. With its new features for dialogue recording and editing, as well as producing headphone-based binaural mixes and more, Nuendo 12 is the Home of Dialogue.
