Success with Paramount

PostMon Jan 13, 2020 6:16 pm

Just a quick note here to say Thank You to Michelle and all who have helped. The Paramount sets and cross-grades seem to be going as planned now. I was able to complete the upgrade and the correct price from the 310/320 to 341 today as well as successfully activate the license in the ilok and get the whole package up and running.

Just wanted to say Thanks to the Michelle, Brett, and the HW Team. I know I've been a bit ugly ... guess I'm just a mean old man sometimes. I'll get my meds adjusted and be better in the future :). My apologies wherever they are warranted.

Best Regards,

Tom

Tom,

Glad to hear that you were able to get the 341 crossgrade up and running. My thanks also to the Hauptwerk team for working out a mechanism to handle this transaction.

The new convolution reverb will be a great feature for theatre organs!

Best regards,

Perhaps naïve question. What HWV reverbs are suitable for Paramount 450?
I see church and cathedral reverbs listed but no theatre organs or doesn't it matter?
My hearing isn't brilliant so I'm seeking advice to help improve the sound for any other listeners!
Thanks

Thank you for your patience as we figured out the best route to handle the crossgrade.

Again if you qualify to get the crossgrade discount please just email me at upgrades@hauptwerk.com and I will get you the proper coupon code.

Thanks so much!

Hi Keith,

A “Hall” with a decay of 2.5 seconds or less would be very suitable. Inspired Acoustics is now selling an IR set that includes the following:

- Béla Bartók National Concert Hall - Budapest (2.2 s)
- Berliner Philharmonie - Berlin (2.2 s)
- Royal Concertgebouw - Amsterdam (2.5 s)

Any of these should sound wonderful with the Paramount 450. The Hall that comes with HW V sounds very good.

Thanks Joe, as a learner (still over many years) it gives confidence to follow others who have a broader perspective of what is suitable.

There is already a 2.6 sec Hall Reverb included with Hauptwerk 5.
