CODM organ volume problems

Postby organtechnology » Tue Jun 14, 2011 10:20 pm

While experimenting with the CODM using the samples of St. Anne's, it has been noted that the volume level of the CODM organs is about 10 dB below the original St. Anne's. Anyone have any ideas what we are doing wrong?

Hello Thomas,

All Hauptwerk instruments will default to -10 dB below what is specified in the ODF the first time loading to help insure that audio distortion does not occur. You just need to adjust the output level then it will remain as you set it from then on.

Hi Brett,

Thanks for the information. We raised the level of the CODM sample set by 16dB and it is still not as robust as the new St. Anne's out of the box at 0.00 dB. Should that be a concern or not?

Hello Thomas,

It's just a level setting - turn it up as much as you like, as long as you don't get clipping (audio distortion). The level meter on the 'Audio, MIDI and Performance' large control panel will go into the red if clipping occurs:
