Looking to upgrade organ from stock organ software. Is it a waste to order software for 3 manuals if I only have 2

Hello Dale,

To use a three manual sample set from a two-manual console you could either:

a) Simply auto-detect the third virtual manual to one of your MIDI manuals in addition to the other virtual manual that's already auto-detected to it (i.e. so that it always plays both simultaneously). Or:

b) Play the third division solely via couplers. Or:

c) Use Hauptwerk's 'floating divisions', which allow you to 'flip' a MIDI manual around dynamically amongst several virtual manuals.
Best regards, Martin.

Thanks for the great (no pun intended) answer. Is this a "norm" for an organist looking for "bigger sounds"?

Undoubtedly lots of people do use sample sets with more manuals than their MIDI keyboards in those ways.
