Well finally, I have taken the plunge and purchased Gigastudio plus a couple of soundcards. The rest of the upgrades will have to wait for a little bit.
Suffice it to say, apart from the appallingly bad \"owners manual\" I am slowly getting to grips with what appears to be an awesome tool... maybe I should consider writing an owners manual properly.
As such, I am in posession of over 1200 individual samples of two fantsatic organs. One is still probably the ultimate concert organ and the other is pretty good but nothing vastly special. I am referring to St Georges Hall Liverpool and Huddersfield Town Hall respectively.
As a pipe organ builder and musician involved heavily in electronics, I have a pretty good idea of what is required for sample production of pipe organs and know the pitfalls surrounding the provision of the same.
Whatever happens, I shall be creating considerable libraries for my own use but in the end, there may be others interested in what I have available.
So what are we talking about here ?
Well, it\'s quite simple - the provision of a complete library of individual stops and combinations recorded on average of 30 secs each with a very expensive AKG microphone - the recordings took 5 weeks in all and each pipe is recorded warts and all from about 2\'. All stops will be in C and C# sides. Mixtures will be available as they stand or alternatively made up compounded into any combination with breaks as required. Poor speech will be corrected, finished stops will be available in almost any pitch etc. etc.
The purpose of this little diatribe is to find out if anyone at all is interested in this......
