October 5, 2019 0 By Kailee Schamberger


In this tutorial, we are going to take a look at the Control Room and see how we access that using the NUAGE surfaces. On each control surface, there is an area to access the Control Room. On the Fader Unit, it’s right here, where you have basic controls. On the Master unit, you have complete controls over the Control Room here, starting with the Volume, you also have Reference level, the Dim and Mute controls, speaker selection, Downmix controls, if you have a Phones channel configured, the you can access that by pressing this button, now the Volume control will control the Phones volume. Up on the Touchscreen, there are duplicate controls for all of this, in addition to things like the Click track Enable, and also Solo controls. The NUAGE system features the standard Solo In Place where all the other channels are muted to create the Solo, but also there is the Listen bus which allows for AFL and PFL Soloing of individual channels. On the speaker control tab, you have access to speaker selection and downmix, but you are going to also solo individual speaker channels here on the Touchscreen. In addition, if the speaker system is 5.1 enabled, you can turn the Base Management on and off. In the Monitor section, you can switch the input source for Control Room. You can switch between the various monitor sources up here including stem tracks, and you can even use the Sum mode so you can listen to different combinations of stems. In addition, you have access to the external inputs right here and also the Cue sends themselves. On the Touchscreen, there are duplicate controls for all the motor sources for the various output channels of the Control Room mixer. For example, you can set one of the Cue sends to listen to an external input. In the Cue section, we have access to controls for Cue outputs of the Control Room. On the hardware surface, we can mute individual Cue sends and also see the signal activity here. On the Touchscreen, we have additional controls to enable the Talkback, or the Click, and determine what the monitor source for that Cue send is. These three sections on the Master unit make up the complete control over the Control Room in Nuendo
