Bovenkerk Hinsz Demos

Postby B. Milan » Sun Jan 28, 2007 11:59 pm

Hello everyone,

I thought I would post a couple demos of the Bovenkerk Hinsz organ in Kampen from the recordings during the sampling sessions. Since there has been a fairly good amount of links floating around to other audio clips of this organ I decided it might be nice to share my recordings for comparison and of course to show you what is to be expected for the Hauptwerk 2 version of this organ.

Showing a full plenum and then the beautiful tremulants on the Rugwerk division.

Showing the lush Romantic side of this organ using many 8' and 4' stops.

Please ignore some of the wrong notes! There really wasn't enough time to redo things to get it "perfect" so these will do and are generally simply used for reference during the sample editing process.

To clarify, these are live on location recordings performed by myself. They are not from Hauptwerk at all!! It will be several months before this project is completed, so I hope these can tide you over until that time and give you an idea of what to look forward to with the new sample set.

Enjoy the glorious sounds!

Hi Brett,
Glorious it is. Can you share the specification of this instrument as is, not how it will be with HW?

I trust that those mixtures which sound pretty much out of tune on this live recording, will not be transmitted to the Hauptwerk version?

Hi Ed,

It will be in HW2 as it is currently in real life with all ranks. See the following specification.

We'll do what we can!

All notes contain 3-5 releases depending on the initial speech of that particular note. The norm is 3 releases per note (staccato, portamento, full). In cases of slow speech we have recorded several to simulate this and the results are uncannily real. No estimated release date as of yet, but I will of course keep you updated.

Thank you.

Brett,

Any idea how much RAM we will need for this instrument? Will you offer a 3-manual version?

Interesting that even tho it is an organ from apparantly the Netherlands, I can understand many of the tabs. Kinda makes organese realtively universal.

I'm afraid it is far too early to determine memory requirements. Likewise for offering modified files. Really the 4th manual only contains 4 stops and trem, so it is not a huge loss if you cannot access them. You can always couple the 4th to 3rd manual to access those 4 stops as well.

Organese...I like that! Yes, it is from the Netherlands. Kampen is a small historic city about 1 hour North-East from Amsterdam.

Hi Brett,

We are few month's further on. Are you making progress on the Bovenkerk sample. I am very interested.
I can not find any news or information on your website concerning the Bovenkerk.

Beautiful organ!

Unfortunate that those mixtures are not in tune though.

Oh, with so many stops engaged in such plenum, it's hard to attribute the detune effect to the mixtures "only", so I think we could be confident in the fact that the "Hauptwerkisation" of the organ will probably correct this point!

Hello,

We currently have several other projects due to be out prior to the Bovenkerk, so I would guess it to be released later in the year, if not early 2008. Sorry for this, however that project will take an enormous amount of time and due to other projects needing attention it will have to wait a bit I'm afraid. Thank you for your interest!

Well, one thing we do not have control over is weather during recording sessions. I had talked with the weatherman at the local news and he assured me the mixtures would stay in tune...well, you know how the weather people are... :)

Considering the recordings were all done during the night, it was not an option to keep an organ tuner there just in case some things go out. I have yet to play any organ with perfectly tuned mixtures and other ranks for that matter. It's all part of the nature of the instrument. Even once an organ is tuned, it is already going out of tune.

Of course I will do what I can to minimize any tuning problems once we deal with that end of things.

Brett,

ai, that is a pitty to hear the release of the Bovenkerk will be later than expected. I do understand this is an enormous project.
Waiting for this release I will enjoying the Bosch-Schnitger, Vollenhove without competition of another sample set. Anyway, thanks for answering.
Greetings from the Netherlands!
