ARA (Audio Random Access)
From version 2019.05 of Cakewalk by Banlab there is a more versatile way of processing audio in Revoice Pro.
The Audio Random Access (ARA for short) interface allows plug-ins and DAWs to integrate much more thoroughly with each other. Revoice Pro supports the new ARA 2 standard that allows a better and much faster exchange of information.
When working with Revoice Pro and Cakewalk, ARA has the following advantages:
- There is immediate transfer of audio between the DAW and Revoice Pro.
- It keeps the names and timings of all linked audio events.
- Revoice Pro remains synchronised with all linked audio events. For example, if you change the starting time of an audio event in the DAW, the corresponding audio region in Revoice Pro will move to the new starting time.
- Linking the output of any process in Revoice Pro to an audio event allows immediate replay in the DAW of Revoice Pro's processing.
- You can open and save the whole project using the DAW's commands Open, Save, Save as.. Not only will these commands save and load DAW data but they will also save and load the Session data from Revoice Pro. Revoice Pro Session data is usually stored in the same folder as DAW data, making any project with ARA much more portable and re-editable.
