My studio has been packed down for a long, long time, whilst I had building done, and I'm in the position that I'm about to try and put the whole thing back together. I'm planning to rebuild my PCs from scratch, and I'm conscious that things have changed somewhat with ARIA.
Last time I installed the instruments I own, they were romplers, each installing their own ARIA player; and I believe it now works more like other samplers, where I install a single player, and each library is simply 'content.' I've duly been and downloaded ARIA player 1.62, and also the newer installers for World and GPO.
When it comes to the Steinway, though, there is no new version. There is a patch, but the main installer is still the one one my DVDs from so many years ago; which, as I understand it, are going to attempt to install the Steinway as a self-contained instrument. My question is firstly, is there a way to avoid this, and simply install the Steinway content, to be used in ARIA 1.62; secondly, if this can't be done, does allowing the Steinway to install as a self-contained instrument interfere with the ARIA engine and replace anything with older file versions?
Sorry, this is probably something that's been addressed many times...
