I bought Nuendo for Macintosh, and I really like it. I've also got Steinberg's now discontinued control surface, "Houston."

The Houston is a huge piece of equipment, but great build quality, made by Harmon-Kardon in England. The wonderful thing is Steinberg continues to support it -- Mac USB drivers were issued recently. (There are two interfaces: USB and MIDI -- Mac users were previously limited to MIDI only).

I had just received shipment of my Nuendo 4 upgrade only a week earlier when my laptop was stolen in Houston last Thanksgiving. Inside the laptop bag, I lost hardware dongles to Waves Diamond Native, Nuendo, Antares Auto-Tune, BIAS Master Perfection Suite, Electric Image Animation Studio, and Steinberg HALion.

Waves has already made it perfectly clear to me that any owner who loses the hardware dongle is SOL. I got that direct from tech support, and again from my dealer Sweetwater on appeal to Waves home office in Israel.

So I purchased a T.C. Electronic PowerCore X8 for $1,500 instead of Waves replacement cost of $1,800.

Steinberg USA tech told me the official word from the home office in Germany is tough luck, but they would try to help me. I am so defeated by the Waves ordeal, I have not pursued a final ruling from Steinberg.

Frankly, Apple selling Logic Studio Pro for $500 makes Nuendo a tough buy at $2,000. So unless Steinberg makes me a real deal, I am a former Nuendo owner.

FWIW - Electric Image replaced the hardware dongle for $50. BIAS is discontinuing hardware keys because they are too much trouble -- lost, stolen, etc. So BIAS will convert my license to the new scheme at no charge.

This ordeal has been almost too much trouble -- nearly put me out of business, ugh.

I don't want to bail on Nuendo, but if I have to, I may have a like-new Houston Controller for sale soon.
