Warm thanks Joerg for this great gift to us, to HW and to organ music . I believe Seiffen is the most near to a genuine genius in organ music, so playing a recital on HW organ is a kind of extended social recognition to Martin and Brett work.

Wonder which one was his favorite sampled organ.

I agree that this console looks terribly expensive but it also looks terribly fantastic. His terraced console design is, in my oppinion the most aesthetic and ergonomic. If its not drawknobs, then tilt tabs, in the terraced design seem to make it easier to use and find stops. The problem with Hauptwerk is that we have so many organs to choose from ( a problem !!!!) that renaming the stop knobs can be an issue. It seems that Glebe's console has resolved that issue by having a strip of replaceable paper above the stop rows. One of my Hauptwerk conversions (a Rodgers 990) had 66 tilt tabs (33 on either side) plus 20 couplers above the top manual. I got around the renaming of the stops problem by using thin stop overlays which could be glued over the original tilt tab with contact cement. This loosely binding cement allowed the stop overlays to be easily peeled off and replaced with a different stop name. These stop overlays, engraved to any stop name you wanted, were supplied by Artisan organs, care of Mark Anderson. Although not as convenient as a touch sensitive monitor, it allowed the organist to experience the tactile feel of changing stops and still have the flexibility of Hauptwerk. I have to admit that touching stops is a better experience than a computer screen although the end result was exactly the same.
Fortunately, Jorge Glebe's excellent taste in console design also extends to his choice of audio. I see he uses a large number of Genelec speakers - probably the best near-field speakers available.

Unfortunately the original images io the console are no longer available to view here. I guess that's the price of progress. :?

I saved a picture of the unique slide in strip labeling method of this console.
