« on: April 14, 2022, 01:09:57 am »
Due to extremely low speed at download, I have not been able to complete installation after more than 48 hr since the first of several attempts

Arturia is notorious for its slow servers but I've never had a download take this long - a few days so far, with timeout "download error" after interminable stalls

Hi,

The download was very fast for me. It took few seconds.
If a download take very long time, then i would stop the download - restart ASC and start another download. It should'nt take that long to download applications.
But yes sometimes when a new product is launched from a manufactor, then servers can be overloaded by many downloads at the same time.

EDIT:
It's also possible to download the installer. Like from here:
https://www.arturia.com/products/software-instruments/augmented-strings-intro/resources
Down the page.
EDIT END

Thanks for the reminder about the direct link. That's working for me.

The download via the Software Center took more than two days, and still won't complete. There's definitely an issue there.

Thanks to LBH ;D. The link to download Augmented STRINGS also works for me after several failed attempts to download directly from Arturia Software Center.

No luck for me so far, after more than 10 tries, from ASC and the direct link. I guess it's a lottery until the initial hausse wears off. I'll just have to be patient.

Anyone know where the temporary download is located on a Macbook, so I can delete it and use the direct link to install?
I'm at around 90 percent download completion in ASC, but it keeps failing.
Found out it was storage space related. I started with 18GB free on my hard drive, now I only have 3GB and it keeps failing saying "Download Error."
I know the file can't be that big, and I haven't done anything else on my laptop since trying this.

I quit ASC and resume the download and the same thing keeps happening. I've tried finishing the DL over 8 times.

(Edit: I found a 16GB install .pkg created by ASC in my private .tmp folder, which was pretty hard to find. Deleted it and used the direct installer... wonder why ASC created a file that big, when the direct link is only a 3GB download \_(ツ)_/)
