Help selecting a Big sample....

Postby B777Captain » Wed Sep 11, 2019 11:53 pm

All...

I would like to purchase one more organ sample for my HW setup.

It must be 61/32 fully operational

Prefer 4 manual but 3 is acceptable

Prefer the CC sound (but not necessary)... a big spacious and powerful sound but very versatile and quiet when called for. I also desiret a nice Trumpet/Tuba/Brass section in the sample.

My computer has 128 GB of RAM so it should be capable of most if not all samples.

I already have the Grand Symphonic sample, which I do like, but it's only 3 manuals and not 61 keys.

I've thought of a few but don't know if they are 61/32, which is very important to me.....
1. Sonnenorgel (I find this sample really nice... but wonder if it has the equivalent CC "growl" I like
2. Hereford
3. I've also heard with interest this composite: https://organareginaecaeli.wordpress.co ... the-cross/

..... among a few others.

I would appreciate any thoughts and suggestions on a few samples not mentioned.

Reading your request, I only see two possibilities:

1) https://hauptwerk-organ.com/aristide/ giving you a simulation of Saint-Ouen in Rouen;

2) the 4-manual CC that Pat has mentioned above. This extension is available contacting the member subbass32 (http://forum.hauptwerk.com/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=15741).

Cordially,

I am a lover of baroque organs. I never considered Dudelange's sample set for several reasons: it's not a baroque organ; music demos have never convinced me. When I got to try it, the day after I ordered it immediately. I think it's the best sample set I bought, and it also responds to all the features you've requested

I don't find any trial version of Dudelange. How have you been able to try it?

Sonnenorgel is a favorite of mine but it lacks the full 61 note compass you want. Goes to 'A' only.

Easy answer: Armley-Schulze, 4/57 Complete version
4 manuals - Check
61/32 - Check
Big sound & quiet ranks - Check (Great and Echo)
Solo reed - Check (comes with seperate volume & voicing controls)
Surround Sound - Check (a bonus which wasn't on your list)
Reasonably priced - Check
Being able to play the first 8 measures of the C. Franck Trios Chorals, No.1 only on the Great, 8' Major Principal - Priceless!

Was going to recommend the same, plus the Armley Schulze complete comes with a masterfully done extended version that adds some nice additional stops. A very well rounded and versatile set with just about one of everything. If you want growl, you got it! Beautifully quiet, you've got that too. Great selection and sounding reeds, trumpets, tuba, etc. By far the most impressive set I own and so glad I did decide to get it. In addition, the acoustic is great without getting goofy and drenched, recording / sound quality is second to none, and is well worth the very reasonable asking price for all the set offers. David Butcher did an over the top job on the Armley Schulze set. I give this one an A++.

You really can't go wrong!

Now the Armley Schulze did NOT come to mind!! I will certainly have to check it out.

Is this St Ouen sample easily installed... and can someone send me a link to it's source of purchase? (or is it part of the Organa Reginai Caeli?) And thanks to all who've replied

I was able to test the complete sample set with a fellow organist who had purchased Dudelange

Thanks for the information. Indeed, the lack of a trial version is a deficience.
