The Aria Player Interface - Learn all about the ARIA Player's instrument slots, as well as the Info, Effects and Settings pages.

Performance Controls - Learn about the four main real-time performance controls that are used throughout the Garritan libraries such as mod wheel for volume, note velocity for attack, sustain pedal for legato mode, and key switches for different instrument articulations. Other performance and playback parameters found in the Aria Player's Controls page are covered as well.

Solo Woodwind Controls - Learn how to control vibrato speed and intensity from within your DAW, as well as how note velocities, note overlaps, sustain pedal info and Auto-legato mode interact and effect note on attacks.

Ensemble Building 1.0 - Explore the GPO multiple player instruments and see how they are used to build up customised section parts.

Solo Brass - Learn how tongued and legato articulations are controlled with the sustain pedal, how the auto legato and portamento instrument controls interact, how the variation 2 control affects dynamics and timbre and how the overlay and overlay AG patches are used.

Ensemble Building 2.0 - See how the individual brass section players and overlay parts are blended together with unique performances to form a live nuanced brass section with variations between each part being doubled and tripled.

Working with GPO Strings - Discover the various articulations and playing styles available in both solo and ensemble GPO string patches and hear some examples of how they are used.

Percussion - See how the various percussion instruments are used in either single hit mode or roll on release mode, and how the sustain pedal is used to muffle certain sounds.

Keyboards & Harp - Explore the various GPO 4 keyboard offerings, and learn how to use the Harp Gliss Packets MIDI data to determine the tonality and quality of harp glissandos.
