There is now an ODF update patch available which changes the default order of the main samples and tremmed samples allowing users to disable multiple attack samples and load the untremmed samples as the default.

Please visit http://www.milandigitalaudio.com/downloads.htm to download the update. Note that the update will cause the Willis files to recache, if you do not need this update please continue to use the original ODF from your downloads. The DVDs contain the latest version so everyone will have this update once the DVDs arrive.

Due to time constraints we haven't yet modified the Set (Load) piston as requested previously, we will look at adding a better indication of its state for a future patch and definitely for volume 2.

Thank you!

Although Volume 1 will, I'm sure the complete instrument won't. Are there any ballpark, or more accurate, estimates for the full instrument? With typical PC RAM limits and a '16 bit lossless with multiple loops' load I assume it will be too large for an 8GB setup but may fit in a 12GB. Would that be a reasonable assumption?

Hello Chris,

It's a bit too early to give out any solid memory requirements for the complete Salisbury set. However if you have a look at the memory requirements listed here:

http://www.milandigitalaudio.com/salisb ... ements.htm

The last item which uses 16 bit, lossless compression and single loops is quite small at 2.69 GB. I would take a guess that the complete say *might* fit in under 8GB if using these memory saving options. I don't think it will with within 8 GB when using multiple loops however.

Please note that even though single loops may not be desirable, that even these single loops in our sets are still very good and generally have a length of 2-4 seconds, thus still a decent size sample for most normal playing.

That said, if you are able to upgrade to 12 GB or more it will definitely help.

In general we do keep the various levels of memory in mind when creating these sets, thus we always try to have a configuration that will allow the complete organ to load in stereo with all sound effects etc. in under 4GB, under 8GB and under 16 GB using the memory saving options in Hauptwerk.

Again, I cannot guarantee what the final memory requirements will be for this set, but I hope that at least gives you a general idea of how we work things here.

Are there any impulse responses available for the Cathedral? - The point would be to treat other virtual instruments to make them sound more like they're in the Cathedral with the organ.

^

I suppose MDA doesn't have a Salisbury Cathedral IR?

There's an article in "Sound-On-Sound" magazine that (talking about Audio Ease's "Speakerphone" rather than "Altiverb") that says "you can have Salisbury Cathedral as your reverb chamber should you wish". But ...

After fruitless Googling for 20 mins and looking at Audio Ease's website, I can't find anything that says explicitly that Audio Ease has made any IRs for Salisbury Cathedral. The only cathedrals I see mentioned are four in France Notre Dame (Chartres), Saint-Etienne (Caen), St Ouen (Rouen) and Saint Alain de Lavaur (Lavaur).

Can anyone (Altiverb users? - I'm not one (not yet, anyway)) say whether there are others?

Or any other info re any Salisbury Cathedral IR?

Do you have an idea of how much memory can be freed up by disabling all the extraneous sound effects?
