Thanks. Downloaded and installed (Spectralayers Elements).

Initial tests of improved declick: Wow. HUGE difference, practically night and day. You guys obviously really worked on this. It also seems like I'm getting smoother ARA2 performance with Reaper.

Ooh!
Simply love these kinds of fine-tuning:
"Unmix Stems now features a Sensitivity parameter for each
instrument to adjust how the artificial intelligence algorithm will
perform the separation." From the Release Notes

So many novel moments with music... unattainable until now, dreamed on for decades.
A big Thank You!

Update: Unfortunately, ARA2 quit working on export mode with .20. It worked fine in .10. I get an error message that the auxiliary editor can't find the file that SL Elements is trying to export. This happens with both of my editors that support ARA2, Sound Forge Audio Studio and Reaper. Reinstalling .20 hasn't helped. I like to bounce files back and forth with Audio Studio, but I can't do that now.

Hope this gets corrected in the next update.

What exact steps do you do to trigger the issue ?
I tried SL 7.0.20 with Reaper 6.12c and Sound Forge Pro 14 build 90 but had no issue.

Load file in SL Elements 7.0.20, select Edit in Audio Studio 14, Audio Studio 14 opens but can't find the file. Same thing happens when I use Reaper (latest version) as the auxiliary editor -- Reaper opens but it can't locate the file. This was not an issue with SL Elements 7.0.10, and still isn't.

If I open Reaper and select SL Elements 7.0.20 in ARA mode, SL Elements shows up in the Reaper effects window, and otherwise works perfectly. So ARA2 in SL Elements DOES WORK to some extent, just not in the way it did originally. I haven't changed my software configuration since, unless you count a possible Windows update.

I have no idea what's causing the problem.

Ok - just to be clear, "ARA2" is only when SL is used as an editor inside another DAW such as Reaper or Cubase.
The other way around (SL calling an external editor such as Reaper or Sound Forge) is just called external edit.

Regarding your issue, it looks like SL could not properly write to the cache folder.
The new default cache folder in SL 7.0.20 is C:\Users\[yourusername]\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\SpectraLayers 7.0\Cache
Can you check you can see the path in Edit > Preferences > System ?
Either the path pointed here doesn't have write permissions, or doesn't exist, or the drive it's on is full.

Thanks for the clarification. I should have said "external edit".

The cache folder path checks. The drive isn't full. The cache path apparently had write permissions before and worked. Don't know why it doesn't work now. When I reinstalled 7.0.10 and tried the same external edit operation, everything worked correctly. So the problem is definitely associated with the latest SL Elements update.

Oh well, I'll just use Reaper as my primary editing platform and use SL through it's "external edit" function. I know that (and ARA2) work fine.
