No big deal for me since I have had Melodyne editor for a while (plus the Essentials version that I got with Studio One), but this will be a big draw for many. Will be interested to try out this version of ARA...
Can you confirm that it has ARA, then?
well, answering myself, from the demo it looks like it doesnt. that's on the basis of adding melodyne as a clip effect; the 'Transfer' button is still active and needed.
T5, like T4, still seems to be a bit fussy with iLok'd plugins too; doesnt seem to give them enough time to authorise and it becomes a bit of a mess trying to manually get them to pick up licenses; you seem to have to find an 'order' to manually hit the authorize button, or keep doing scans.
Im also seeing inconsistencies in the way the plugin menus are being displayed (in both popup tree and popup menu mode)
<pluginroot>\_Tools\Routing\Crossovers nests 3 deep in the menu as_Tools>>Routing>>Crossovers
which is how i'd want it; one 'nesting' per folder depth
<pluginroot>Synths\Digital nests 1 deep in a single menu item as "Synths\Digital"
so I wind up with ten Synths\<subcategory> entries.
and this isnt the onyl place although subfolders of that sometimes work at lower levels of nesting.
<pluginroot>Effects\Delay\ nests 1 deep in the menu as "Effects\Delay"
<pluginroot>Effects\Delay\_Multitap nests 2 deep in the menu as "Effects\Delay">>_Multitap
ie there are about 25 menu entries like "Effects\category"one for each subfolder of my effects folder.
But actually even that is not even consistent, as some top-level menu entries are actually three folders deep ("Effects\category\subcategory"), eg
<pluginroot>Effects\Delay\_Multitap\Supertap nests 3 deep in the menu as "Effects\Delay">>_Multitap>>SuperTap
<pluginroot>Effects\Dynamics\Multifunction\C1 nests 2 deep in the menu as "Effects\Dynamics\Multifunction">>C1
