Carlos, I have reported the same problem on this page. The tip of Graham works well: use
- http://blockedsiteaccess.com/ and in that site type in http://www.hauptwerk.nl in the textbox . It´s no definite solution but a way around.

Hello !

I sympathize with the south-american and south-africans hauptwerkians, and hope they can resolve their internet problems soon.
Can we speek about the sampleset too ?
The amount of music demos on Contrebombarde is rather low,
not enough for judge about the quality or versatility...

Who tried it ?
It's the first sampleset with 3 microphone positions... Is it a good idea ?
what do you think about the synchronized tremulants ?

thanks !

http://www.hauptwerk.nl/mp3steendamapelden.php EN including one demo in .WAV?

Dear Fred,

Were the same de-noising method/techniques used for the samples in this set as with past Sygsoft releases (like Móstoles), or was another method used?

Dear Carson,

perhaps you have already seen it on the dedicated webpages of this samplet, however I am responsable for the sound result of this sampleset. Because I am 'new' I introduced also new software for the denoising which I believe is the most important thing in developing a new sampleset. It was also a different process of working in which we actually spend a very lot of time for getting the result as it is now.
So the direct answer to your question is: "No, for this set we used new software and worked in a different process".
Therefor, without being too pretentious :oops: , I dare to say that this set has the best soundquality in the history of Sygsoft Holland. For any forthcoming samplesets we will stay with this new method as well.

Hope this helps.

Kind regard

Hello, and Thank You for the great work! I've been happily exploring the new Steendam Organ all this week, and the results are truly magnificent. The three-position recording technique is very interesting, and the full sampled Tremulants (and Tremulant Combinations) are rich with lovely character and detail.

I've managed to fit in almost the entire Sample Set at 20-bits into my 24-GB Windows 7 System. Only the middle position of the Pedal Stops had to be reduced to 16 bits. The Cache Size is just under 23 GB, leaving room for the Operating System and the Hauptwerk Program itself... with 0.1 GB of RAM to spare!

My next step will be to install the 60 Pistons on my Console, and then to work out a nice set of Divisional and General Pre-Sets. And then on to making Music!

Thanks also for your Demo recordings, which are always pleasing and effective demonstrations of the various Hauptwerk Organs you play.

Perhaps Gert at PCOrgan.com and Dirk Menzenbach would like to write a review of the new Steendam Organ, to help others get an idea for the beauty and flexibility of the Sample Set.

All the Best!

hello 'OrganoPleno',

thank you for your kind words. We are glad you like the results of our work and enjoy playing it.
The 'tripple channel' are indeed great to play around with and I am also a great lover of tremulants.
24Gb is indeed the minimum for getting a good 'picture' of the 3 channels mixed together.
Gert van Ginkel has his copy already and will soon give his review I think.
I am quite busy coming weeks for Easter concerts but will try to post some more recordings on CB.

Kind regards
Christian
