With you on that. :) And Marc talked me into buying that one. 8)

Kinda like everything works with everything else. I haven't found a combination yet that doesn't work. Can't say that's true of all sample sets and undoubtedly the same is true of the organ that the sample set came from.

I would say that there are many (similar ranks), that would allow sampling say 30 Ranks of say violins, 30 ranks of celest's, etc. that were installed in that organ, in order to get sufficient power in A C's Enormous Hall, That alone would provide similar sound quality's as sampled, and the solo ranks would be sampled separately ! ( Say the 100 Inch WP, Tuba Stop, etc. ) ? :roll: :roll: :roll:

If my calculation are close a 12 core Xeon rig with 128GB of fast RAM should do it.
