I have posted about this in the Garritan forum but have received no replies, so I'm trying here.

With the Finale 2014 upgrade, which includes ARIA Player v1.620 and ARIA Engine v1.626, I find that when I run ARIA in stand-alone mode, some of the Finale Default Bank instruments don't respond to the volume slider.

The following sixteen instruments have the problem -- they play at full volume even when the slider is set to zero:

Woodwinds / Flutes / Alto Flute Solo
Woodwinds / Flutes / Bass Flute Solo
Woodwinds / Oboes and Eng. Horn / Oboe D'Amore Solo
Woodwinds / Clarinets / Contrabass Clarinet Solo
Woodwinds / Clarinets / Eb Clarinet Solo
Brass / Trumpets / Piccolo Trumpet Solo
Percussion / Percussion Toys KS
Percussion / Tubular Bells KS
Pipe Organ / Baroque Plenum Pedal
Pipe Organ / Baroque Plenum Reeds
World / Banjo
World / Basic African Percussion
World / Celtic Harp
World / Fife
World / Steel Drums
World / Tablas

This is true on my desktop computer running Windows XP Media Edition, as well as on my laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium. And the same thing happens using the ARIA VST instrument within Cubase 5.

Any suggestions?

Thanks --

I have heard back from Customer Support in the Garritan thread (http://garritan.custhelp.com/app/account/questions/detail/i_id/1087368).

Bottom line, it's an actual bug. "This problem has been identified as a software defect and has been assigned to our product development department. If possible, the defect will be scoped and corrected in an upcoming version of Finale ... I'm afraid at this time there is no work around with these patches within the Mixer of the ARIA Player."

Very disappointing.

I suspect that there are errors in the respective sfz files. These are relatively easy to edit. I'll take a look sometime in the next few days. Maybe I can fix them.

Chris --

That's great, thanks. I know nothing about sfz files, looking forward to learning more!

At least you still have the Mod wheel to adjust the volume.
