System requirements
of
the Arp Schnitger organ of the church in Eenum



The computer

To play the full version of this sample set without restrictions requires a modern, fast computer.
Obviously Hauptwerk must also be installed with the latest version 5 (or higher) Advanced.
It is said that the best results are achieved using Apple-MacIntosh computers; however, we have no experience with this. It is difficult to make exact statements about what is needed. The "mother" website hauptwerk.com provides much information about this issue.
Prerequisites
.
Please note: This information applies to the newest version of Hauptwerk.
This virtual Arp Schnitger organ can be downloaded.
Below is a Table of memory usage .
On other systems, these values can vary considerably! Please note that your Operating System also requires considerable memory.


The sound card

A good internal or external sound card. For more information go to: hauptwerk.com .


Manuals/keyboards/pedal òr complete organ with MIDI out

1 manual/keyboard and a (at least 25 keys) pedal òr a complete electronic organ with MIDI out.
Beautiful consoles specifically designed for Hauptwerk are commercially available.
In the Netherlands these are available through, for example,

Those who are technically inclined can provide their keyboard with MIDI capability using hardware from, for example, WIRA, MIDI-Hardware.com or MGB . We ourselves have done this using a Heyligers organ dating from around 1975 (using WIRA hardware). The conversion was about 300 Euro and everything has worked perfectly for years.


Speakers/headphone

The superb sound quality of Hauptwerk is best experienced through high-quality headphones, such as AKG or Sennheiser.
We prefer connecting the sound card to a (possibly multi-channel) sound system. The above mentioned companies can also advise you on any purchases in this area.
What you definitely should not do is listen to Hauptwerk through the built-in speakers of the monitor or a set of €10 computer speakers!

Virtual console Hauptwerk version 5 original
speeltafeleenumshort_1hw2.jpg
Virtual console Hauptwerk version 5 original

Here you see a representation of the original console from the organ of Eenum.
The original organ has a so called short-octave. This so-called "short octave" is actually a "long octave". Earlier keyboards went down to F (with the keys F-G-A-B-H) (German key names). When organists wanted lower keys, the makers added them (C-D-E) in a very efficient manner. We now call this "short octave" but there are no keys that were left out; there were keys that were added. Later, of course, *more* keys were added (F sharp, G sharp,), etc.
On the original Eenum organ, Key E plays C, Key F plays F, Key F sharp plays D Key G plays G, Key G sharp plays E. The rest is normal.
The pedal board was added in later times and has not a short octave. It is connected to the manual in a strange way because there are no pipes for the lower C sharp, D sharp, F sharp and G sharp. They are connected one octave up.
To use the original manual you have to connect in HW2 by selecting Organ Settings/Connect Keyboard MIDI inputs to Organ Keyboards MAN ORG with one of your manuals.
To use the original pedal you have to connect in HW2 by selecting Organ Settings/Connect Keyboard MIDI inputs to Organ Keyboards PEDAL ORG with your pedal board.

The organ
Short biography of Arp Schnitger

Arp Schnitger was born in Germany and lived 1648-1719. He enjoyed being world famous and is considered as the best known organ-builder at the time of the North-European baroque period. Schnitger combined the organ principles from the Renaissance with the early-baroque building principles. He built and placed organs in Germany and the Netherlands, but also in Portugal, Spain, England, Brazil and Russia. Some called Schnitger the Stradivarius among the organ-builders. The organs have an unbelievable variety of sound colours and, according to the organ-players, "very playable and they always work". He built a total of 170 organs of which 110 were completely new. More than 30 still exist today and for the most part in Northern Germany.
He was very precise and meticulous in his directions. Often he would carry out a survey of the location before commencing work. Schnitger and his people built the whole inner works. He did have his most important workshop in Hamburg. Transport was carried out by ship. The other parts of the organ such as the organ-cabinet, the woodcarving and the embellishments were carried out by local craftsmen most of the time.
