    New Pipe Organ

    Dear All,

    I was not visiting this forum for more than a year now, but I thought it would be nice to let you know about a recent development that resulted in a virtual pipe organ that played this, live:

    I hope you like the music!

    All the best,

    Hello Csaba,

    This is Joe Felice, the person who recorded the Bach Passacaglia and Thema Fugatum with the PAB Pipe Organ Library. I am simply amazed there has been no feedback from members of this forum.

    Here is a chance for experienced organists and budding organists, alike, to have a state-of-the-art set of pipe organ samples literally at their fingertips at perhaps 0.1 to 0.01% of the cost of a real comparable instrument!

    I, for one would ask the members of this forum whether they have taken the time to hear this magnificent instrument -- and if they did, why would one NOT comment about it?

    Sincerely,

    Joe <jcfelice88keys>

    The majority of members of this forum would use existing software samplers which somewhat allow disk streaming.
    Though the product sounds good, forum members will not be active until it is in known format like Kontakt/Kompakt format.

    Well played and beautifully registered on a stunning instrument. Thanks! Earl

    Re: New Pipe Organ

    Just how was this done, was the recording all on the MAC, was it all samples, what sampler did you use ? Its a nice sound.

    I would have preferred the Passacaglia to have been slightly faster, to keep time with a slow walk, but its all subjective, isnt it.

    EDIT: This piece has a lot of memories for me, very melancholy but not personal.

    Hi! A Kontakt version is not far to come - I just wonder how to manage with the large amount of sounds and possible combinations.

    - Do you prefer having all the stops?

    - How many pre-selected combinations would you like to have to work with?

    I am no math expert but as far as I could see we can do around 6*10^26 of them . Anyway. 10? 50? 100? Even more?

    Re: New Pipe Organ

    I would like to have all the individual stops in my hands in addition to sounds of combination of stops. I do think it is essential for many of us to have samples in format like Kontakt or any other sampler format which can allow direct disk streaming to reduce the usage of memory.

    It is just ridiculous to have 2G - 20G of memory to just load the sounds...

    It would be great if the Hauptwerk (software) uses direct disk streaming or similar technology.
    No it's the other way around; it's ridiculous to use disk streaming which limits your polyphony to around 124 voices for single SATA drive systems. An extremely large organ with 50 ranks with release samples for the reverb tail plays 100 voices for each key you press. Streaming samplers with such organ sets can play max 2 or three notes with all ranks active (called Tutti).
    HAUPTWERK however allows playback of 6.500+ voices from RAM. See http://www.crumhorn-labs.com/Hauptwe...olyphony.shtml

    Re: New Pipe Organ

    Hi, Michiel. That is fair observation. But that is the reason why makers usually provide sounds of combination of the stops, in addition to individual stops.
