    I do not know anything about the Garritan range, so here is what I need...

    Must play Gig samples
    Must be able to process live microphone and eq / fx for vocals.
    Must be VST and VSTi capable.

    That's right, Gary bought the Giga technology. Developing it anew is one of the many projects currently on his plate. Good deal!

    Yes I have readup on that, and I found that Aria will now play Gig files, it's just the other questions I need to nail down,


    Must be able to process live microphone with eq / fx for vocals.
    Must be VST and VSTi capable.

    If Aria can do the above it could be a real option

    This was in the latest Garritan Newsletter:

    ARIA Updates Coming Soon!
    Developed in collaboration with Plogue Art et Technologie, ARIA is Garritan’s advanced sample player. The ARIA Player is constantly improving in performance and features. For NAMM we will be showing new features including a new design, branding tabs for different libraries, GVIplugin for playing Giga files, OSX 64bit standalone support, convolution with impulses from renown acoustic spaces, and other features. We are discussing licensing ARIA third party developers and welcome discussions with developers.

    You should know that ARIA currently does not have an audio IN option to process live incoming audio. But you can find other audio editors or sequencer software to process your vocals for EQ/FX. Check out Audacity.

    Is this true?....if so how, can I just dump my old gigs in a folder and open in Aria or do they have to be converted somehow or what?

    We will announce how that will work in a future press release.
    Can't say more for now, sorry.
