Uninstalling SL7 BUT will SL8 work with ARA?

Just thinking of uninstalling Spectral layers 7 from my comp BUT will Spectral layers 8 work In Cubase ARA instead of 7 , just want to make sure first .

Have you tried the SL8 demo?

Hi Poinzy , i have both 7 and 8 pro installed and just wondering will it disturb anything to do with thew ARA if i uninstall SL7 pro ?

Just edited the title as it chopped off the last bit lol

I don’t know whether this is relevant or not, but I used SL7 in ARA mode in Reaper just fine, but after I uninstalled SL7 and installed SL8, Reaper claimed it couldn’t find the SL8 ARA path. I just gave up after a while and have since used SL8 exclusively as an auxiliary editor. I still don’t know why ARA quit working.

Ahhh ok , so to be on the safe side it’s better to leave SL7 installed . Thanks for the info , unless i can get a confirmation that’s it’s safe to do so i’ll leave it as it is


you have to just reinstall and everything still works as it should, no issue its just 2 progarms

To be clear, the last installed version takes control of ARA. If you had projects edited with SL7 ARA, they should open just fine with SL8 ARA.

Reaper might have screwed up their ARA support somehow. Mine might not be a typical scenario.

Ok Thanks Robin
