    Nuendo 3 and Cubase SX3

    I have heard from many people that the summing in Nuendo is superior to any other DAW software. Is that true, and what difference in quality do most say they notice? And finally, are Nuendo and Cubase virtually the same except for their video differences?

    jcool,

    The Cubase bounce was actually nicer than the Nuendo in the test (IMO). The highs had more shimmer...certain subtleties (like the horns coming thru in the mix a bit brighter) were there.

    Technically...none of the majors give up any info on their summing architectures.

    I thought SX and Nuendo had the exact same audio engines, with the differences in cost being attributed to certain posthouse features...so I'm not sure how you got your result.

    FWIW: Some people love Nuendo's summing, others hate it...same with Samplitude, PT, Sonor, etc...So I guess it boils down to personal choice.

    I heard the same thing from Steinberg themselves.

    I can also confirm, SX 2/3 and Nuendo 2/3 share the same code base. There should not be any differences in the final mixes.
    Am I the only one without a small type signature?

    I can also confirm that 2 separate mixes, one done in ProTools LE and one done in Nuendo 2 using the same source tracks nulled to inifinity both as mono mixes and stereo mixes.

    You're correct.
