Lars Baumann, Steinbergâ€™s Senior Product Manager for Nuendo, told us, â€œThis exciting development will allow the growing Nuendo audio post community to use one of the worldâ€™s leading reconforming solutions. Our ongoing commitment to offer exceptional levels of post-specific functionality is unwavering, and continues to drive vital aspects of Nuendo development moving forward to the next Nuendo 4 version.â€�
Virtual Katy CEO and founder John McKay had this to say, â€œWeâ€™re very pleased to be able to offer Nuendo compatibility for our VK tools such as VK Conform, VK CNA and VK Compare as well as the VK Premium toolkit later this year. Weâ€™ve received tremendous support from Steinberg that has enabled us to integrate directly into Nuendo so that the resulting reconforming process is extraordinarily quick and smooth.â€�
The announced compatibility is the result of ongoing and in-depth technological cooperation between Steinbergâ€™s Nuendo development team and Virtual Katy engineers. Virtual Katy uses a specially designed interface module called Steinberg Kernel Interface (SKI) to connect directly into the Nuendo software core, executing conforming tasks practically from within the program itself. This system allows a speed and smoothness of operation with Virtual Katy in Nuendo not achievable with other DAW applications.
