Audio set up

PostFri Jan 08, 2021 12:19 pm

Just a quick question
I currently have 4 active speakers, no sub. The speakers are connected to an audio interface. Should I set them up in hauptwerk as 4 separate channels or just play through one channel. The organ is in a small bedroom. I tried setting hauptwerk up so that each speaker was on a separate channel but it was a bit like playing the same cd on 4 separate hifi units.

If you have the advanced version you should try setting them up as two stereo pairs in Hauptwerk. Put each pair in a primary bus mixer channel and make a group which includes these two primary buses. Assign the group you have created as the output for each rank output perspective 1. Use Haupwerk’s cyclic algorithm so the output is shared across the two stereo channels.

Have a look at my tutorials if you need more info than the manual (

Another consideration is the physical placement of the speakers. Without knowing any details of the room (and the layout) it's a little difficult to make recommendations. Considering the room is one half of an audio setup.
