I have recently reinstalled Finale 2014.5 on my iMac (Mid 2010 - OS Sierra) after having had no sound for Garritan instruments. 'Play Finale Through Audio Units' is checked, ARIA Player is showing in Bank 1 in 'Audio Units Banks and Effects'. In Device Set Up/Audio Set Up, 'Built-in Output' is assigned and there is a sound when 'Test Audio Output' is selected, but when I try playing a score, it loads the sounds and then - nothing. (Computer sound is turned on, by the way...). But of course, select Play Finale Thru MIDI and the sound works - funny, that. VERY frustrating. Any offers of help gratefully received.

Did you install the Garritan sounds? IIRC, it's a separate download and install.

... but it was all part of the same download. Thee seems to be no separate download from the link in my account.

However, when I go to the ARIA player, all the banks are empty?

Try loading Aria manually, with the Score Manager.
