RX 8 Connect in Nuendo/Cubase
There's currently a known-issue with RX 8.1 when using the RX Connect module within Cubase and Nuendo. Check back on this article for updates on this issue.
The RX Connect plug-in sends a clip to the RX standalone application for editing and repair. This gives you access to all of RX's modules in one place, and provides the benefits of RX's offline processing and visual interface.
To edit audio from Steinberg Cubase or Nuendo in RX:
- In Cubase/Nuendo, select the audio clip for processing.
- In Cubase/Nuendo, go to Audio > Direct Offline Processing
- Be sure that "Auto-Apply" is disabled (unticked) when performing this function
- In the window that opens, click the ‘+Plug-in’ button and select RX Connect from the plugin menu that appears.
- Select between 'Reference' or 'Repair'; 'Reference' is used for audio analysis only from within the RX Editor, and 'Repair' allows you to make edits in RX 7 Editor, and then send the audio back to your host to be processed there
- Once you have made your choice, press ‘Apply’ to send the audio to RX. The RX application will automatically open and receive the audio
- You can now carry out any repair, restoration or cleaning using the full selection of RX modules.
- Once you are happy with the edits, you can simply press the ‘Send back’ button at the top of the open window to send the audio back to your DAW.
- Back in Cubase/Nuendo, in the Direct Offline Processing window, click ‘Apply’ once more to commit your changes
- The changes made from RX Audio Editor will now be applied to the audio in your DAW
Please note that RX Connect is not supported as a realtime insert in Nuendo.
If you find yourself in an endless offline processing loop:
You can find your processed audio file as well as the original in your Cubase/Nuendo project folder within the sub-folder, Edits.
The default location for project folders is: [USER]/Music/Cubase Projects/[Project name]
