New Music Gear Monday: The Yamaha/Steinberg Nuage

People that work on Nuendo absolutely love it, as well they should. It has a slick user interface and it sounds great. One of the things that the platform has sorely needed was a worksurface as good as the software, something that Steinberg, then Yamaha has struggled with. That now may be over with the introduction of Nuage (which is French for cloud).

Nuage is an integrated system comprised of worksurfaces, a Master Control unit, analog and digital IO, and a PCI network card. It's designed to work at up to 128 channels of 192k/24 bit source audio, which while impressive, is overkill since Yamaha says the unit is directed at post, which is a 48k/24 bit world.

Take a look at the video. Nuage is slick and you get the feeling that you can just jump right in and work. The price is said to be $18,000 to $30,000, depending upon the configuration, which might be a little too pricey for the American market. I'm sure we'll learn more at NAMM in January. Visit the Nuage page for more info.
