Overview - Questions and Answers

Is the Advance Music Production Suite downloadable? 

The Advance Music Production Suite comes in the form of a hard drive with all the necessary content and installers.  Each installer is located in a folder on the hard drive, organized by manufacturer.  

Does each program come with its own installer?

Some installers are program specific meaning that each product must be installed separately and one-at-a-time, while some manufacturers have included a single installer for all included software products by that manufacturer.  In the case that just a single installer was included, you will be able to choose which specific products to install during the installation.

Is it supported for installation on Windows and Mac computers?

Yes.  The screenshots included in the guide are Windows-specific however, most of the steps for installing on a Mac are very similar.  One of the main differences when installing on a Mac is that there is not an option to choose an alternate installation location for content.  You will need to allow the content to install to the default location, so be sure that you have enough space on your main hard drive.  In most cases you can later move the content folder to a location of your choice and reassign the location of the content folder in the application itself.
