Most popular HW organ

Postby csw900 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 7:17 am

Hi All HW users

Apart from St Annes - which are the most popular/most played Hauptwerk organs?

There are so many sample sets (organs) that I have never heard of that I am wondering whether any of them are used much by real organists.

I would like to know the five most popular organs so that I can support them in eplayOrgan for translating their midi files from one organ to play correctly on another different organ.

If you do not yet know what eplayOrgan is - see my website https://midimusic.github.io

Look on the all time charts on Contrebombarde. These are a good marker which samplesets are popular.
Best regards

After looking at your web site, it seems to me that instead of seeking the most popular HW instrument, you should focus on the HW theater organs (there are some very good ones). The most popular HW organs are best suited for classical organ literature.

Thanks - so far.

I am thinking more in terms of using eplayOrgan to translate organ midi files rather than playing it from a console. I would like to have some suggestions of actual organs rather than general comments.

eplayOrgan can be configured to play ANY HW organ (up to 3 manuals) from midi files and can translate the midi files produced by these organs to play on ANY other HW organ. It can do this only after eplayOrgan has been configured to play them.

Anyone with the knowledge and a bit of spare time can do this configuring but I was planning to configure a few organs myself to get the ball rolling. Since I do not want to waste my time configuring seldom played organs I need to know the most popular/played organs.

I agree with Stan's list and the Armley Schulze. I would add the following:

1721 Arp Schnitger: St. Michael's in Zwolle, Netherlands

http://www.sonusparadisi.cz/en/organs/n ... chael.html

1877 Henry Willis: Salisbury Cathedral, Salisbury, England

2012 Metzler: Església Abacial de Santa Maria de Poblet, Tarragona, Spain

Hi All

Many thanks for the suggestions, I am now overwhelmed and it will take me a while to consider and catch up with all the suggestions and possibilities.

In the mean time I have finished implementing the Armley Schulze organ and it is working beautifully. I managed to find all of the stop NRPN's and other details I needed to know on line. I also found what is probably the ONLY Armley Schulze midi file on line to test the resulting organ. This organ will be included in the next issue (V3.0b) of eplayOrgan.

I was going to attach an Armley Schulze midi file which I have recorded but there seems to be no way to add it to this post. I may put it on to Contrebombarde later along with an .mp3 recording.

Also I may need to ask for NRPN details of some of the other organs so that I can implement them. I will see what is on line first and come back later. I will also need at least one midi file recorded on each of the target organs - again I will see what is already on line and come back if necessary.

I will hazard a guess that the sample set producers will have something to say about using their sets in this manner. As I understand it, many of the sample sets in the mentioned lists do not allow CODM use of their work. Asking our members to participate in helping this endeavor may require special permission from the sample set producers.

Hi James

I think you have got entirely the wrong idea.

I am not using HW CODM or HW sample sets.
