Celemony ARA Audio Random Access
Celemony has announced that the ARA Audio Random Access interface extension is now available to all software manufacturers.
ARA is designed to allow for the integration of Melodyne and similar plug-ins into digital audio workstations (DAWs).
As an extension of existing plug-in interfaces such as VST or Audio Unit, ARA opens an additional channel of communication through which the DAW and plug-in are able to exchange information about the audio files and their placement in the song, as well as over their tempo, pitch, rhythm and more.
ARA has been implemented in Presonus Studio One as well as in Melodyne editor, assistant and essential since the end of last year. According to Celemony, "the ARA-facilitated interaction between Studio One and Melodyne leads to a user-friendly workflow that goes far beyond anything previously afforded by plug-in interfaces and allows a still more effective use of Melodyne." With the ARA Software Development Kit (SDK), other manufacturers of DAWs and plug-ins can now integrate ARA into their own products free of charge.
