Steinberg has announced the availability of Nuendo 12, a major update to its audio production tool.
The company says that the twelfth version of Nuendo has a clear focus on speech. 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 area.
Here’s what’s new in Steinberg Nuendo 12:
- Dialogue Detection AI–powered algorithms to remove silent parts from a recording and leave only the dialogue.

- Netflix TTAL import and export support for working on language dubbing projects for Netflix.

- Music feature enhancements including Scale Assistant in VariAudio, Create Chord Events from Audio Events, Verve felt piano, Import tempo and signature tracks, Multi-selection and phase coherent AudioWarp editing, Lin One Dither and more.
