Channels of instruments

If I import a file via XML and choose to use the Aria player and load the sounds manually, is there an easy way to tell what channels the instruments were originally assigned to? I could write them all down before switching over to the Aria player but I was wondering if the channel assignments are listed somewhere.

No, this information is not encoded in the XML as I recall.

You should be able to save the “ensemble” from your old Aria setup to an external file (probably named *.aria) and then load back into the player.

The details of how to do it may depend on whether your Aria player was bundled with a sample library, or a stand-alone version.
