    Does Aria Player work with other samples?

    After checking out Tom's trumpet shake tut, I'm curious if Aria player is like Kontakt in that it will play samples other than GPO4.
    Thanks,
    Randy

    Umm, actually, it will load any sfz sample set. (In fact, to make sure, I opened Aria and loaded in a sfz I made myself from samples on-line).

    Better, Garritan (and Plogue, certainly) have programed the Aria player to respond to more opcodes (commands) than the original sfz spec. Plogue have these new opcodes listed on their forum on their site.

    I have hopes that Bela D is going to release some of their samples in Aria sfz format so we don't have to drop $350 on Kontakt to play their incredible instruments (I heard a rumor - nothing more).

    So, what kind of samples are you looking for?

    You need to convert your sample-sets to sfz, like Robmentioned. I use daily the Bosendorfer from Sampletekk i converted to sfz. And it works very nice. Additionaly, you can load any other sfz. It`s a good sampler.

    I stand corrected,
    but I am correct that no other libraries besides Garritan's will simply load and play in ARIA, not as of this date.

    Of course those who want to go (under the hood) and make files that will is up to them.

    Question Re: Does Aria Player work with other samples?

    I have GOS all in .gig files. Is there anyway to convert them to work with GPO4? That would be great if it was possible! Thanks.
