Synchro Arts Updates VocALign with ARA Integration in Studio One

Sweetwater InSync - Fri, 09/23/2016 - 05:04

Synchro Arts VocALign is now available with ARA integration in Studio One Professional. ARA (Audio Random Access) is an extension co-developed by Celemony and PreSonus for audio plug-ins. ARA technology enhances the communication between plug-in and DAW, and gives the plug-in and host instant access to the audio data without requiring audio to be exported to the plug-in and then re-imported into the DAW. 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.

VocALign with ARA integration is a free update for all registered users.

An alternate term for “vibrato system,” encompasses all of the parts of an electric guitar vibrato assembly. The specific pieces depend on the type of vibrato system. For example, a double-locking system will have a locking nut, floating bridge, fine tuners, vibrato arm, and vibrato springs. A Bigsby vibrato system will only have a tailpiece, vibrato arm , and vibrato springs.

Tremolo Springs

Sweetwater InSync - Thu, 09/22/2016 - 16:01

Another word-ological victim of guitarists’ tendency to refer to their guitar’s vibrato system as a “tremolo” system. Tremolo springs (vibrato springs) are used to counter-balance the pull of the strings. The springs balance the bridge or tailpiece of the system so that the guitar can be played normally, and provide tension so that the bridge or tailpiece returns to its balanced resting position after the vibrato system is used to raise or lower the pitch of the strings.

With a surface-mount tailpiece system, such as a Bigsby, the spring is inserted between the vibrato bar and the tailpiece. In an internally mounted system, such as the standard Stratocaster tremolo or a locking tremolo system, such as a Floyd Rose, the spring is located inside a body cavity in the back of the guitar. It is attached to a moving block that is integral to the bridge on one end and a “claw” screwed into the guitar’s back on the other.
