ARCADE is a plug-in that can be loaded in your Digital Audio Workstation (DAW – Pro Tools, Logic, Live, Garageband, Etc.). It’s also an application where you access it from the Applications location on your computer. See the bottom of this post for a list of DAWs which have been tested for compatibility.
In general, ARCADE can be loaded in just the same way as any other third-party VST in your DAW. Oftentimes you will need to select the manufacturer, Output, first, then choose ARCADE from your list of Output plug-ins.
For detailed instructions on opening ARCADE in Ableton Live, Logic Pro, Pro Tools, Cubase, Reason, and Bitwig, please see this article.
ARCADE will work well with the following DAWs: Ableton Live, Logic Pro, Pro Tools, Cubase, Studio One, FL Studio, Digital Performer, Reason, Maschine, Bitwig, Reaper. If you don't see your DAW on this list, that doesn't mean that ARCADE is not compatible with it, just that it hasn't been thoroughly tested. If you do have any difficulty with ARCADE in your DAW just reach out to our support team and we'll be glad to assist.
