Questions about those using Melodyne with Cubase 6. I just upgraded to Melodyne Editor 2.0 and found out about this new ARA feature that Presonus Studio One v2 has in conjunction with Melodyne now, which I think is a great feature. I hope Steinberg supports this ARA extension soon.
First, I’m wondering if anyone has heard from Steinberg yet about Cubase 6.x supporting ARA?
Second, if Steinberg hasn’t made plans to support Melodyne’s ARA, I’ve actually been considering installing Studio One v2 along side Cubase just so I could use Melodyne ARA this way. While I’m a fan of Cubase 6 (it is, in my opinion, the best DAW on the market, especially for my needs), I happen to like the specific workflow that ARA presents with Melodyne, so while working on vocals, for example, I don’t mind loading up another DAW app for just that part of the project, then resuming the project in Cubase (of course!)… assuming they play nicely with each other. So does anyone install Studio One v2 along side Cubase 6 and do they conflict in any way?
The only other software (besides plugins) I have on my main Cubase DAW is frankly WaveLab 7 and Reaper (which I use from time to time because of its excellent ripple editing implementation when needed). Both WaveLab and Reaper play perfectly nicely with Cubase 6… but I have no idea if Studio One v2 screws things up. I have another DAW dedicated to Pro Tools (don’t ask, long story), and I already know not to mix Pro Tools with Cubase… tends to muck up a perfectly awesome machine. So if anyone has any thoughts on Studio One v2 along side Cubase 6, I’d appreciate it. (But note, this is not about Studio One’s features vs. Cubase… we all know the superior DAW. It’s just that ARA looks like it could be time-saver for me in some cases.)
Thanks in advance for any info!
