    Question EWI USB Aria Versus 'Real' Aria

    Greetings all. Expecting my EWI USB to arrive tomorrow from Sweetwater and wondering if I still need to use the Aria that comes with it or can I use the Aria that I got when I purchased the GPO, JaBB and CoMB2 libraries.

    Is there anything special about the one that comes with the EWI?

    Thanks!

    The EWI version is a lighter edition, having some instruments from both GPO and JABB but with less samples and somewhat different programming. Also the EWI version has some extra synth sounds. The ARIA provided is also simpler.
    If you buy GPO4 or JABB3 or World you can use the EWI USB sounds with the more professional ARIA version you get with those.

    But does the 'real' Aria allow the same control of the EWI USB such as picking the fingerings and such or is that only available in the Aria that comes with the instrument?

    Really? I don't think there are EWI USB Preferences in the JABB Aria.

    The software that comes with the EWI USB has some EWI configuration pages that setup various sensitivity, transposing and cc settings. These settings are then transferred to the EWI and stored in its memory.
    This cannot be done with the 16ch Aria player.

    That said, I haven't used the EWI Aria since I set it up months ago. I use the 16ch player where I can access all libraries at once. That's awesome.

    [edit]
    Oops, almost forgot to mention that the EWI Aria software has an update available that allows it to work with the other Aria engine.

    yup. what he said.
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.
