Using Garritan with Ableton Live

In order to use the Garritan Libraries in Ableton Live, verify that the proper ARIA Player Components are installed in the Audio Units or VST Plug-In folder that Abelton uses and that the Garritan ARIA Player is showing in your Plug-In Device Browser.


To verify the pathway, open a Live Project and open the program's preferences:


Macintosh: Live Menu > Preferences
Windows: Options Menu > Preferences


In the Preferences Window, click the File Folder category on the left. Verify that "Use Audio Units" and/or "Use VST Plug-In" (either System or Custom Folder*) are turned On.



*If you are using a Custom VST Folder, verify that the ARIA Player VST DLL file (either 64-bit [x64] or 32-bit [x32] depending on your version of the application) has been copied to this folder. If it is not present here, you can copy it from the following locations:


Macintosh: Macintosh HD > Library > Audio > Plug-Ins > VST
Windows: C:\Program Files\Garritan\ARIA Player\VST


Be sure to click "Rescan" under Plug-In Sources in Live's File Folder Preferences to refresh the Plug-In list.


Once these files are in place, the ARIA Player will be available for use as a Plug-In within Live.
