Discussion in 'Nuendo' started by pitchharmonics, Jul 7, 2004.
I've never known anyone to use Nuendo with the SB Fraudigy. This would be the first thing I'd update.
I'll second the soundcard idea. At least get something that will record 24 bits to start with.
Start with a tube guitar amp and a nice guitar, mic that with at least one good mic (shure sm57) but preferably two or three (Sennheiser MD421, and a condenser added to the 57), run the mics into good preamps (preferably Neve, UA, Great River, ect..), then ship the signal through a nice compressor (Neve 33609, 1176, LA2A, DBX 160VU, ect..) and knock off a few db of the peaks or more if your going for the some compression "effect", then run the signal into good Quality converters lie a Rosetta or similar.
Then after you have recorded your track, record the same thing again. Pan one track left and one right.
Uh, yeah... $1400 flagship program with a $49 barely consumer-grade sound card? Something doesn't seem quite right there...
You need an audio interface for Nuendo, I have Nuendo myself and i use a Motu 24 I/O interface routed into a 24 Track Mackie mixing board.
You forgot the need for the SSL 'K' series console and Pro Tools HD system!
I think we can skip both. The Nuendo will work just fine with a good converter and the SSL would be a bit overkill. Sounds like he only needs 3-4 good channels unless he decides to do acoustic drums.
