Announcing Auto-Align Post VST3-ARA2 Public Beta

Hello everyone,

We are pleased to present you with the first public beta of Auto-Align Post 1.2 VST3-ARA2 for macOS and Windows!

The beta is open to anyone with a license for Auto-Align Post and includes a beta of an upcoming update of Auto-Align Post AAX 1.2 as well.

What’s ARA?
ARA stands for Audio Random Access™ and is developed by Celemony.
ARA is an extension to the VST and Audio Unit plugin format standards, and it brings new processing, plugin interaction and DAW integration capabilities. Unlike traditional plugins that process one buffer of samples at a time, ARA allows plugins to access the entire audio file and interchange broader data with the host and other plugin instances.

To take advantage of ARA’s capabilities, Auto-Align Post required a complete redesign of the workflow and user interface. Those of you who’ve previously used the AAX AudioSuite version may need to take a minute to get accustomed to the different flow.

Auto-Align Post VST3-ARA2 is one of the first plugins ever to use ARA2. We’ve enjoyed working closely with Celemony, Steinberg and PreSonus on Auto-Align Post’s ARA2 implementation, as well as on ARA2 integration with JUCE for the benefit of the audio developers community.

We would love to hear about your experience with Auto-Align Post VST3-ARA2. Being a new technology, its implementations within the various DAWs are still being refined, so you may stumble upon some unexpected behavior. If you encounter any issues or have any improvement suggestions, please let us know.
