Synchro Arts has announced that its automatic time-alignment software, VocALign, is now available with fast, easy-to-use ARA integration in Studio One Professional.
VocALign provides time-saving and quality benefits when tightening double-tracked vocals and backing harmonies, aligning instrument tracks or sound effects, and syncing ADR or foreign language dubbing.
ARA (Audio Random Access) is an extension for audio plug-in interfaces. Co-developed by Celemony and PreSonus. ARA technology enhances the communication between plug-in and DAW, and gives the plug-in and host instant access to the audio data.
Synchro Arts and PreSonus have worked together to integrate VocALign tightly into Studio One with a simple, streamlined workflow to provide automatic, instantaneous time alignment of the selected audio signals.
Carsten Gehle, Technical Director of Celemony Software GmbH comments: "We're excited to have Synchro Arts as a new partner supporting the ARA plug-in platform. It allows VocALign to gain speed, convenience and ease-of-use which essentially represents the goal of our ARA technology."
Editors can save hours in the studio and let VocALign do the fine re-timing work automatically. Users drag and drop Guide and Dub audio events into VocALign, which instantly edits the Dub audio to match the timing of the Guide.
Two versions of VocALign with ARA are available as VST3 plug-ins:
- VocALign Project 3 – the basic VocALign with the new Studio One integration is now more affordable than before, and uses computer-based authorization. Watch this video to find out more
- VocALign Pro 4 - the most advanced version of VocALign is operated in the same way as VocALign Project but has these additional and advanced features:
- Several Dubs can be processed at the same time, advanced alignment handles more challenging feature differences, improved editing quality, user Synch points can provide targets for alignment, and longer signals can be processed.
- Note: This version requires an iLok USB key for trial and full authorization.
Arnd Kaiser, PreSonus General Manager comments: "Using VocALign ARA inside Studio One really feels like working in one piece of software; and its speed and ease-of-use redefines state-of-the-art audio time-alignment inside your DAW. Furthermore, the new low price for VocALign Project makes this solution even more attractive."
Jeff Bloom, Managing Director of Synchro Arts concludes: "We are incredibly grateful to Celemony and PreSonus for providing us with the ARA technology to make this VocALign integration so exceptional."
VocALign licenses can be purchased from the Synchro Arts and PreSonus stores as well as Pro Audio Dealers world-wide.
The ARA versions of VocALign Project and VocALign Pro are available as free updates for existing VocALign license owners.
