A wunderful organ, recorded in an absolute high level quality. I’ve been waiting so long for a german romantic organ, disappointed about the Dudelange from Voxus. Now Reiner‘s work is exzellent.

Bach? Oh why not, right?

Yes why not indeed. I've made this point before I think. Good music will sound good on a good organ. We get spoiled with HW, choosing an organ appropriate to the literature, but consider this: If you were the organist at this church, would you only play German Romantic lit? The French play all the literature on CC organs. Mendelssohn was at St Thomas, Leipzig so are his Sonatas (commissioned by an English publisher) to be played on a Bach organ or an English Romantic instrument? I'm sure he played them on all kinds of organs, adapting as necessary. Albert Schweitzer claimed CC organs were the best for playing Bach!! Messiaen is known to have toured in Germany playing his own music (originally conceived on a modified CC organ) on Neo-Baroque German instruments. My point is, in the real, non-virtual world, you play the literature you want to play on the organ that is at your fingertips, - you have no choice. And if your budget is limited in the Virtual world, in other words you can't afford to buy every sample set that comes out, you end up doing the same. Although, I have a few sample sets, my setup loads the main Rotterdam organ at startup and I hardly ever change it, I can register almost everything on it and I like the sound. I'm considering moving to the Rosales in order to have a similarly complete spec and somewhat less reverb. Besides, most of the time when I'm learning/reviewing notes, I play on a few 8' and 4' flutes until I'm ready to practice on the actual registration.
That's my 2 centavo opinion.

That's why I put the smiley face on it; indeed why not!
We all do the same thing: we play earlier music on later organs, less so the other way around.
It was not meant as sarcastic remark.

But with HW you nevertheless have the possibility to be more authentic than with the organ you have at your church.

I'm very satisfied about this new sampleset.
I asked Reiner if he could publish le list of the stops used for each fixed combinations...

To Mr Moderator and ReinerS :
adding the name of this organ in this topic's tittle could be a good idea, what do you think ?

The stops used in the fixed combinations are now listed on my website. Please have a look at the "details" tab in the sample set description and scroll all the way down to the end!
Too much hassle to copy it in here as I don't want to spend the time formatting tables :(
