NUAGE System Components


Conceived and crafted for impeccable integration with Nuendo/Cubase mixing functions.


Powerful post-production editing with a full selection of ergonomically arranged controls and touch-screen display.

NUAGE I/O (16D/16A/8A8D)

Three high-performance audio I/O units deliver exceptional sonic precision and quality.


Two Nuage Workspace units are available: a large model that is the same size as the Nuage fader unit, and a small model that can be added to a Nuage Master unit to match the width of a standard 24” monitor display.


The Dante Accelerator audio interface card can be installed in the computer running the Nuendo/Cubase DAW to provide extra low-latency multi-channel audio data transfer capacity that can be an advantage when communicating with Nuage I/O units.


Nuendo, the core of the Nuage system, comes with an enviable selection of features not found in any other post production software.
