Sample set producers' web pages unavailable?

PostMon Oct 11, 2021 6:04 am

The websites of two Hauptwerk sample set producers appear not to be working properly. I’m in England, and generally use Firefox as my browser, though I’ve also checked with Microsoft Edge.

The home page for Neil Jensen’s series of theatre organs is completely blank:

http://www.keymediaproductions.com/

though the Checkout page for ordering can still be accessed at:

http://www.keymediaproductions.com/checkout.php

Organ Expressions’ home page:

https://www.organexpressions.com/

brings up “Index of”, and some column titles, but with no content.

Are these sites inaccessible from other countries, and if so do we know why?

It does appear that his website ( http://www.keymediaproductions.com/ ) doesn't currently support HTTPS, so if your browser won't allow access to the site because of that then it's probably simplest to email him directly:

neil_jensen [at] keymediaproductions.com

(I think you'd probably need to email him anyway to get download links for the v5+ versions of his sample sets anyway.)

Don't throw your Hauptwerk v3 (HASP) USB dongle away! You'll need that when upgrading to Hauptwerk v6 (v5+) so as to transfer your existing sample set licences off of it, and into the iLok system. You probably just need to install the driver in order to get your v3 dongle recognised by the computer for that.

I'm not sure whether/where MDA still hosts the downloads for the file HASP dongle (Hauptwerk v2-v4 Hauptwerk USB Key) driver publicly, but if you email Francois at support [at] hauptwerk.com I expect he'll be able to provide the necessary details.

Email from Gary Jordan:

The website it down. It got hacked and we are working to secure it
and reinstall.
Is there an organ you are interested in?

Well done Ed, and thanks! Regarding Neil Jensen’s site: I love his 3/35 theatre organ, and have enjoyed many happy hours playing it. I’ve recorded an audio demonstration of some of the ranks, which will be introduced on Saturday at the London meeting of the Electronic Organ Constructors’ Society by our Chairman. This may result in some interest in the sample set among our members, and I wanted to know what the current position is. Thanks for explaining that.

Regarding Organ Expressions: I’ve received good service from them in the past, and although I’m not currently planning to buy any more sample sets I was concerned at their apparent disappearance. It’s good to know that the hiatus is only temporary.
