I have all my Garritan libraies installed on my new Mac on the OSX boot drive and am now attempting to install Aria as a plugin to use with the Windows 7 boot drive with the Windows version of Metro 7 (DAW). I have GPO and Garritan Harps working in the stand-alone application of Aria but Aria dosen't show up as a VST plugin in Metro 7. I can see in the boot drive program files folder there is a vstplugins folder and in it is a Garritan folder and in it are four Aria Player VST plugins.
Is that the correct configuration?
Also, Iv'e experienced a problem in both OSX and Windows with older versions of Aria that come with the different libraies writing over the newer version while doing the installations. I don't understand why MM doesn't update the Aria Player for all the user libraies downloads or at least have the newest versions of Aria and the Aria engine and related current files available as a separate download on the user libraries download page.
I also had to search the internet for some sort of update for the Garritan CFX Grand before it would function. I think this all could be a little better thought out and organized.
Installing and authorizing Kontakt and the Kontakt libraies is now pretty much automated. It only took a few minutes where as having to download and hassling with the Grarritan products to get them to work took hours.
