Extensions in Cubase

Cubase supports extensions such as Audio Random Access (ARA). ARA allows you to integrate compatible programs as plug-ins into your DAW. This integration allows for random access to audio events in the musical context of your project.

To be able to use a program as an extension, you must first install and register that program. After that, Cubase automatically loads the extension, and you can activate it from within the program.

All extensions that are installed on your system are listed in the System Component Information window (Extensions page). Extensions that might lead to stability problems or even cause the program to crash are deactivated. If you still want to use them, you must activate them manually in the System Component Information window.

In Cubase, extensions are integrated in the Editor. Information such as project timeline and tempo are shared between the Project window and the Editor.
