Thank you so much for providing these free sound libraries! They will make a great addition to my sound collection.

Quick question: are these sounds under an attribution license? if so, how would you like to be attributed?

I cannot see this bank on sforzando after installing it. Am I missing something? I am running OSX and have installed sforzando (which works well) and the ARIA engine free bank (installation succesful) but I cannot see it anywhere...

Hi Helder,

Thanks for pointing that out. It's not the expected behavior, but Free Sounds should show up after a reboot on Mac (that's how I go it to work here on

We plan on updating the install process soon for the bank file drag and drop used with the OEM banks that have been released since.

You're welcome!

Sorry for the trouble. OSX preference caching is somewhat different from on OS version another and we're looking to sort that out.
