This looks amazing. One question, I can't seem to find it on the website: Is there a link to the licence agreement?

I've been waiting for this, so when I saw it in the middle of the night I immediately purchased it, downloaded, and installed it, as well as the updated Master Installation package. Now I wait for the iLok code. Sure wish that could be automatic!

Thank you!

Edit: I specifically asked because I wanted to find a sentence like
CONTENT 3.1 You may use the set freely in performance and recording within the limitations of the license you have with Milan Digital Audio for Hauptwerk 5.0 or subsequent compatible versions (the Host Software).

and I really like that I found it!

Thanks for your enthusiasm, Steve - I know it's hard to wait a few hours (but just think - it's still MUCH better and faster than when we had to do the HASP updates!) :mrgreen:

OMG what a great set!
Download was fast.Took a while to configure everything, and begin setting pistons.
I’m loving this. You guys do such great work.
A little color on the screens might be nice, but hey, it’s the sound, isn’t it?
Thank you so much.

While I have deep respect for sample producers who put restrictions on the use of their sets (they often have to do so just to get permission to sample!) we try very hard to only sample instruments that will allow our users to use them freely. We've actually chosen NOT to sample in a couple cases just for that reason.

Best,

Glad you like it, Steve.

We went back and forth on the screens - it's hard to satisfy everyone (and, indeed... quite impossible!)

What we found was that due to the sheer number of controls, photorealistic screens were very hard to read. And, our usual simple screens do have some color - but that, too was difficult with so many divisions. I think we made the best decision/compromise we could, but we realize some people will feel differently.

Enjoy the set - it is indeed a lot of fun to play. That chamade is so over-the-top :lol: (yes, the bloody thing is really THAT loud.... it will sing out over full organ everything coupled to everything!)

Am I missing something with this sample set? The Echo division is identified as a floating division, however, the only couplers for it are to the pedal at 8' and 4' pitch. Since it is not assigned to a manual, how is one supposed to activate this division?

There are Echo to .... couplers shown on the console and simple screen. They aren’t listed in the pdf file shown in the specification on Evensong’s website.

I voiced the Echo strings much louder than they are (OK, the whole division!) so I can build up the shimmer :)

Iain is correct....

The stoplist was taken right from the church's website - obviously they left out that little detail. You can indeed couple the Echo to the other manuals!

Well, that's the beauty of HW - you can do things that aren't "real" if you wish! :D

And, in the case of this instrument - the noise floor is so low that you aren't likely to lose quality by raising the amplitude in this way.... usually I'm happy if I when doing noise reduction I can get the noise down below -100dB - on this instrument there are stops that I got down to -130~150dB.... it is one of the quietest and cleanest sets I've ever produced.
