Cakewalk Drum Replacer uses ARA technology
The Cakewalk Sonar “Everett” update introduces the Drum Replacer plug-in for Sonar Platinum. While drum replacement technology has been around for a while, it has never been integrated into a DAW so seamlessly. Thanks to ARA Audio Random Access, an extension for existing plug-in interfaces we developed together with Presonus, the playback of the plug-in and the DAW are synchronized and the full region gets analyzed for more accurate replacement. ARA even allows audio-to-MIDI by drag and drop.
By the way, the new “Everett” release for every Sonar version is fully compatible with Melodyne editor, assistant and essential. Furthermore, it comes with improved ARA support for Melodyne.
