    Hey all,

    I am an advanced audio user and I have always finished my audio by exporting either a temp clip or locked edit into ProTools for really ALL my audio work.
    Now in Resolve 15 there seems to be some really tremendous audio capabilities by "linking with Fairlight" but I can't find the Fairlight app anywhere.
    The videos just released about Resolve 15 seem to be saying that the Fairlight audio software is now completely included INSIDE Resolve 15 but I'm finding that hard to believe.

    Is this correct? Or does one need to have the Fairlight HARDWARE in order to get at the software?
    Is it really Christmas in April for me?!
    Or am I missing something?

    Hi,
    It should be at te bottom of your screen, inside Resolve, between the Color and Deliver tab, no hardware needed.

    I have not yet installed Resolve 15. Waiting to finish a big project before risking updating.

    So you're saying the entire (or most of) the Fairlight audio app is all part of Resolve 15 now?
    Excuse me if that's not sinking into my skull yet. I've been waiting 10-years to get any real audio inside a video NLE.

    Fairlight is inside of Resolve 14, as well. I'm assuming you're still on 12.5?

    Resolve 15 does the same thing now with Fusion.

    So Resolve is now: An NLE, a node-based VFX compositor, a DAW, and a Color Grading panel - all in one.

    Yeah, still running 12.5 over here.

    Well damn! I guess I'm having a hard time accepting the gift because there has never been any NLE that really had serious audio functions included at all.

    Skipped 14 as well, but mainly because last year's film got pushed back. Hoping my system will run it, at least in HD.

    14 runs much better on my laptop than 12 did. But loading yet another complex app into 15 may increase system requirements.

    Hey DP, razz16mm is right. 14 runs way better than 12 did. Not sure if 15 will be that easy but think they're working hard to make things run on even laptops. At least that's what I've been led to believe.

    15 is running well on power tools

    don't get your hopes up for a fully functional DAW in Resolve in 2018... at this point F'duplight is best discribed as a bag-0-troubles with great future promise... "future" as in not today

    Any specific problems or bugs that I should look out for?
