Nanouck is renowned in the Netherlands for his high quality live recordings. But much of the work is done in his studio, including regular visits from musicians to record overdubs. Alongside his work of composing and arranging for film and orchestra, producing ‘rehearsal tapes’ for live productions and managing the music and audio production for live productions, it’s clear that the fast, intuitive Nuage user interface makes a big difference to his working life.
“Although our studio isn’t large, the small footprint of Nuage means I can easily work and mix large projects with hundreds of tracks,” he says. “I hardly use a mouse, because I have created many key commands in Cubase. It is very simple to allocate these to the Nuage control surface, which makes the workflow very personal and extremely fast.
“The ability to write music notation in Cubase, just using key commands, is also fantastic for me as a composer and arranger, as well as its many fantastic plug-ins.”
