I am pleased to announce we began shipping the Authorized Steinway Professional version.
Those who placed orders with the Go-Round will be the first to receive their copy. The Standard version will begin shipping in another week or so. And then the basic version will follow.
This has been an incredible journey and a maiden voyage. This is our first product using the Aria engine. We started out making a sampled library and soon realized that none of the engines did what we needed. So we undertook to develop our own engine with Plogue.
As is typical with all first releases there is bound to be things we could not discover and there may be some things to work out. Although we tested across a wide range of machines and hardware, it is impossible to test them all. We'd love it if you'd report any issues as early as possible to we can have rapid upgrades so you can have the best experience possible.
We are focusing on getting some demos posted soon.
This marks a new chapter for us and am grateful for your support.
Congratulations Gary on the release. I hope it satisfies all your aspirations and more. I have just started a new job after an extended period without work and once I have recovered financially I will order your product.
this is awesome news. i was beginning to think that the ARIA Player was just a dream i had in a lost land a long long time ago. i can't wait until GPO is ARIAized. i also can't wait to start hearing some demos - if it sounds half as realistic as the Gofriller and Stradivari i'll be blown away. only time will tell.
