Temple of Tune owner Fredo Gevaert has invested in a Yamaha Nuage system to improve service at the Belgian post-production facility.
Temple of Tune comprises four studios, all connected by a network of hard disks, so that several can work on the same project at once, files can be quickly moved around, sound effects quickly accessed, and so on. Working on major projects in Dutch, French, and English, a regular part of the facility’s work is in Automated Dialogue Replacement (ADR).
All four studios have used Steinberg Nuendo for many years, which Gevaert is happy to continue doing. But, Nuage has solved one of Nuendo’s more challenging aspects.
“Nuendo is fantastic, it has so many applications and so many advantages compared to other DAWs. It is more flexible, faster, more user-friendly, and easier to work with multiple users. It delivers fantastic quality for a fair price,” he says.
“However, there are so many possible key commands that it can be difficult to remember them all. So when Nuage arrived as a fabulous small surface that gives easy access to the huge amount of parameters in Nuendo 6, it brought all of the functionality immediately to our fingertips.”
Temple of Tune invested in a Nuage system for its main studio and a second system is already being planned for the facility’s surround studio.
“It’s been like switching from flying an aircraft with a mouse and keyboard to flying it from within a real cockpit,” Fredo continues. “It’s amazing how deeply Nuage and Nuendo are integrated. Many very complex applications have now become manageable; it’s similar to mixing on a real console – but easier, faster, and more flexible.
