Steinberg have announced a new first-class
synchronizer device, developed in close cooperation with CB Electronics and tailored to the needs of post-production for its Nuendo Media Production System. A prototype of the new
as yet unnamed device is on display at Steinbergâ€™s booth at AES.
Lars Baumann, Steinbergâ€™s
Senior Product Manager for Nuendo told us, â€œWeâ€™re very excited to be developing a first-class new synchronizer for Nuendo together with Colin Broad of CB
Electronics, one of the worldâ€™s leading manufacturers of hardware for post production. Despite the current trend towards accomplishing ever more tasks using video within
DAWs, many post people still have a requirement to integrate their audio workstation with other devices. The new
hardware will couple the open, innovative and scalable Nuendo DAW technology with Colinâ€™s 25 years of experience and
his outstanding technical know-how in his field.â€�
Colin Broad, founder of CB Electronics commented, â€œNuendo is regarded as one of the leading software solutions for post
production, so it seemed natural to collaborate with Steinberg to come up with a fully-featured synchronizing device
tailored for the post production market. Weâ€™re sure the results will be outstanding.â€�
The new unit will be fitted with a wide range of physical interfaces for machine control and synchronization, including
support for LTC, MTC/MMC, Sony 9-Pin machine control, Sony 9-pin emulation, Wordclock and GPIO.
synchronizer will be tightly integrated with Steinbergâ€™s Nuendo Media Production System with a sample-accurate VST
System Link connection.
The new hardware will complete the existing Nuendo feature set for synchronization and machine control. It will offer
locking not only to a variety of reference sources such as AES/EBU signals, but also to video reference including tri-level
sync signals from HD video devices. Two RS-422 ports will enable Nuendo to act either as a Sony 9-Pin Controller or
As a 9-pin controller, Nuendo will slave to either LTC or VITC with a single serial connection. The new hardware
will interface with the Nuendo software via USB and establishes near sample accurate sync using a VST System Link
connection to the computerâ€™s audio interface with help of any commonly used digital connection such as RCA, BNC, XLR
