    Moving GPO Sound data to another drive

    I can't find a way to move sound data of GPO 4.0 to another drive and let Aria see the data...
    Is there a way?

    That's a good question, mnstudio - In Aria there isn't a browser window to direct the app to the sound Library's folder. I think you need to have set that location during the installation process. Have you tried un-installing and going through it again? You already have the download, the part that takes the longest - now see if you can't direct the installer to the external drive where you want the Library stored.

    No, AFAIK it isn't possible to install the library in a different location from the software itself..
    I also tried to copy the "Garritan Personal Orchestra 4" folder (in which there are the sound data) to another drive and put an alias on the original location, but Aria doesn't see it the same...

    I see, mnstudio - I couldn't recall for sure if the installer gave you a choice of location the way most installers do.

    Well then - It looks like you'll have to rearrange your expectations and have the Library on your main hard drive. Unless Tony or another programmer has suggestions?

    But, mnstudio - I haven't found it to be a problem having GPO on my main drive. I use external drives for my Sonar projects. I'm not sure why you feel you'd prefer having the Library elsewhere--?

    Can't you install the whole thing on any drive of your choosing?

    Hi, Rich - He apparently is saying that when he installed, he didn't see any options being given about where things would be installed. - ? -

    Manually editing them is currently the best way to move things around for GPO4 (apart from reinstalling the "Personal Orchestra 4" package that is). Of course that is not for everyone. (and if you screw things up, then only a reinstall will help you

    We've received a very awful email complaint about this particular issue yesterday, (i have to admit im sensitive to the issue now)

    So let me just say that from the EARLY DESIGN STAGES, we have planned a full utility to manage ARIA sample content that will deal with changing the paths to samples in a graphical manner (Steinway has this in a simple form called "Sample Manager"), GPO4, being a more complex library with many tens of sub banks, is another ballgame.

    So this utility is planned, (no date yet). So in the mean time, please keep in mind that we think of everything (LOL) .. just a time resource thing at this point.

    Regards, and please have fun with GPO4!

    Install it new!

    When installing, the installer asks you first where to save GPO4, and then he asks where to save the samples(only) .
