We are going to use Garritan Classic Pipe Organs as an example installation
How to Install the ARIA Player and Garritan Classic Pipe Organs
Installing the ARIA Player and the sound library are now two separate processes. ARIA first is installed, then the Classic Pipe Organs sound library.
PC Setup: To begin, extract the contents of the zip file you downloaded to a folder of your choosing, then click on the .exe application icon and follow the on-screen prompts. If you have theDVD version just double-click the .exe file.
Mac Setup: To begin, open up the mpkg installer from the installation zip file and follow the onscreen prompts. If you have the DVD version, double-click on the installer icon.
You will be given the option to install several components:
Standalone will load the Garritan ARIA Player as its own software program. You can play instruments, record basic MIDI, and render audio files.
VST Plug-in will let you load Garritan ARIA Player as a VST plug-in to use with sequencers such asCubase, Sonar, and Reaper, as well as notation programs such as Finale.
AU Plug-in (Mac only) will let you load Garritan ARIA Player as an Audio Units plug-in within hosts such as Logic and Digital Performer.
RTAS Plug-in will let you use Garritan ARIA Player in Pro Tools M-Powered, LE, and HD.
Once you have selected your plug-in installation options, you can specify which parts of the library you want installed. We recommend you install the entire library.
At this point, you can sit back and let the installer do the work. If you have the download version, you can delete the extraction folder once Garritan Classic Pipe Organs is successfully installed. Before doing so, however, we suggest you make a backup copy of the installation zip file and put it in a safe place. If anything happens to your computer, you can reinstall Garritan Classic Pipe Organs from the discs or the backup file.
