Newbie questions [MDA Salisbury volumes and keyboards]

PostFri May 15, 2020 12:30 am

1. Why are there 3 vol. of the Salisbury samples?

2. Does one have to load all three volumes for a complete organ?

3. My instrument to be rebuild is a Rodgers 760 - 2 manual - can the Salisbury sample even be used? I plan on using a Mac mini 32MB Ram.

Thanks

Hello Armand

Volume 1 of Salisbury gives you a working organ, with a selection of stops from the whole instrument. Volume 2 adds some more (again fully usable as an organ) and volume 3 completes the instrument.

You will be able to use it with your Mac, though probably not all in 24 bit.

You can use your console in various ways. Hauptwerk supports "floating divisions" where you can assign a division to a physical keyboard to suit what you are playing. You can just use two of the manuals. You can assign more than one division to a keyboard.

Hello Armand,

Thanks very much for the interest.

To add to Ian's reply, yes -- you can certainly play it from a 2-manual digital organ that has MIDI ouput, and on a Mac Mini with 32 GB of RAM (provided it's running macOS 10.13.6 or above: https://www.hauptwerk.com/requirements/ ). An given Salisbury sample set volume requires all of the lower volume numbers to have been purchased and installed. Hence in order to use volume 3 (the full organ) you need to have bought and installed all three volumes.
Best regards, Martin.

You need all three volumes if you want the complete organ.

I have to say that I found Volume 1 to be quite a nice organ in its own right. I believe the Assistant Organist at Salisbury Cathedral advised on the choice the stops in the various volumes.

You don't get any Choir stops with Volume 1 and some of the less required stops are also missing.

I have never played it with less than four manuals. I bought the keyboards and the organ at the same time. There was a long time delay before Volumes 2 and 3 appeared after the Volume 1 release so I had a spare manual for some time. I found that by careful choice of stops I could couple Swell and Solo to the Choir manual, using an octave coupler to lighten the combined sound, and effectively have a four manual organ - albeit with somewhat restricted stop choices.

I have all three volumes and it runs OK on a 32GB PC for me. It is the sampleset that I use most of the time.

Thanks you very much guy. I really appreciate that. For those of us who are new to this, it would be helpful if that explanation of the Salisbury samples was on the purchase page. —

Another question: is their a place where we can see the specifications for each of the volumes?

You can play 3 keyboards in a 2 manual instrument by means of a HW Floating Division. I can send you a fully illustrated guide made by our friend Evert-Jan for newbies+dummies as I used to be. I think it can work on HWV. If interested send me a PM.

I load Salisbury in 16GB at 20-bit, so 24-bit should be feasible in 32GB.
Best wishes,
