Cakewalk now supports version 2 of the ARA (Audio Random Access) plug-in extension, and is compatible with ARA 2 plug-ins such as Melodyne 4 and Synchro Arts Revoice Pro, as well as all future ARA 2 compatible plug-ins. ARA 2 provides tighter, more efficient app integration of next generation ARA plug-ins, including sharing tracks, regions, selection, as well as other project attributes. Cakewalk continues to support ARA 1 plug-ins as well.
A single plug-in view is now used to show all ARA 2 plug-in instances of the same type in the project. Clicking or double-clicking on any ARA 2 plug-in region will reuse the same view. This makes working with multiple ARA clips in a project much quicker, such as when comping, since plug-in views no longer need to open and close for each clip.The selection state for tracks and clips in Cakewalk are automatically sent to ARA plug-ins. If supported by the plug-in, selection may be shown in the plug-in view. For example, blobs for selected tracks and clips in Cakewalk are automatically highlighted in Melodyne.
