One major benefit that Hauptwerk provides, Is that the regular tuning' s that Pipe Organs require, are never needed, But the slight D-tuning that happens the day after tuning a live Pipe Organ does not happen in Hauptwerk, another reason to curtail, re-tuning a new sample set in Hauptwerk.
BTW a friend of mine had an Aeolene free reed clarinet, it never needed much tuning but when it did the lower half slid in and out to tune it and the Reed itself could be tuned as any reed organ or accordion reed is tuned ! The tonal quality of this Clarinet, is very orchestral

ReinerS wrote:I suppose it will be good! Acoustics in the cathedral are enormous, so with four channel technique the set will be adjustable between wet and soaking wet. Main mikes are place in line with the organ facade about 10 m away from the pipework, giving both exceptional clarity and great acoustics. (Quite a challenge at about 14m above the floor).
Recordings in progress this week, planned release later this year.
I hope to be able to post some teaser demos in a few weeks, when I'll have the first stops processed.

Could your web site be updated with a few details to help promote this sample?

There is a certain warmth and grandeur about this instrument that is very, very appealing. What nice acoustics in this well played Mendelsohn piece!

I regret that there are no 16' reeds in the manual(s), and in general only few reeds.

I cannot get over how beautiful and unique and colorful the interior of this church is. Simply amazing!

The organ case is rather wide and low; a little odd looking and lacking in majestic height appearance, but what a sound in this space!

I look forward to sampled sound samples and the final set. I don't have a German romantic organ yet in good acousticsm and this is most likely going to be the one!

Any idea about RAM and HD requirements?

Thanks.

Thank you! Indeed this sound is wonderful, and I have the feeling that this grandeur is truly captured in the sampleset. I hope to provide some new demos shortly. Did you listen to the four pieces I posted a little more than a week ago?

Yes indeed, they did a fantastic job when they renovated the church in 2008-2010. The paintings actually originate from the 19th century.

Yes, that would indeed be nice. However, the small number of reeds is one of the typical characteristics of the german romantic period of organ building, the focus was on providing an orchestral sound based on a large number of various 8' stops, all having their own individual sound. This organ does indeed have a high number of them, all in all there are 16!
An interesting element of this particular organ is that it also provides the kind of mixtures that are needed for baroque music which were normally not available in german organs of that period. It marks the beginning of a change in organ design which in the end lead to the neo-baroque organ. This organ however combines the grandeur and warmth of the romatic organ design with the mixtures in a way that seems to retain the best of both.
Any idea about RAM and HD requirements?

Yes, since all stops are processed and I only need to add the tracker action sounds. It requires roughly 21GB when loading in 24bit compressed, and about half of that for 16bit compressed. Since there is a long reverb (some tails go up to 10 seconds, most are between 6 and 8 secs) CPU power may become an issue when playing tutti, a modern 4-6 core CPU should do though.

I am planning to start putting up information this weekend. Let's see how far I get.

I’ve looked at the preliminary material
on the website and noticed there are no portrait stop jambs shown. Will these be included when the instrument is released?

Hi Iain,

currently I have not planned to provide portrait stop jambs, the reason being that these would look like foreign objetcs to this instrument. Nevertheless, if there is sufficient demand for such screens I might add them, but I would feel quite uneasy doing so.

Best regards

And I would like to request option for left and right jams in some sort of simple format (landscape mode). I can't easily read the font pictured. Totally destroys my enjoyment of the instrument and would be a reason not to invest.

Well, since there seems to be a demand for simple and extra easy to reed left/right pages I did add them to the set. This is what it will look like (left portrait shown as example). HW will automagically switch between landscape and portrait for the left- and right page.

The somewhat unconventional ordering of the stops matches the original order on the console, where all stop switches are in one double row above the keyboards. I am not really sure if this was the original intention but in a way they are ordered such that you get a nice crescendo within each division when you just pull out the stops one by one starting from the right.

Best regards

Thanks.
The arrangement of the stops is little unusual but easy to read.

A little unusual stop arrangement, yes. Takes a little getting used to. Too bad there isn't an easy way to rearrange (them) more conventionally. Of course on my real drawknobs, I can.

I still like the drawknob labelling method as pictured on this post;

http://forum.hauptwerk.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1873&p=122334&hilit=Glebe+console#p122334

Not sure I notice a demand for simple. Unless I missed something, saw only a single inquiry.

Rgds,
