General instructions for download and install a sample set

Important: Download the latest licensing packages file https://www.hauptwerk.com/licensingpackages/
Start Hauptwerk V (or higher) and install this file via the menu File | Install Organ, Temperament, or Impulse Response Reverb... Hauptwerk will 'learn' which protected sets are currently on the market.

For users of Hauptwerk 5 or higher:

  1. Make sure that Hauptwerk is not loaded.
  2. Open your iLok account and choose Licenses/Redeem Activation code and cut and paste the many-digit code into the screen.
  3. Activate your license to iLok Cloud or to the iLok dongle. In the latter case: then place the dongle on the Hauptwerk PC.
    It appears that this rule is not clear to everyone:
    • 3a: Go to your iLok account (log in if necessary) and select the sample set for which you want to enter the activation code.
    • 3b: At the top right of the iLok screen is a gray/green check mark.
      If you go over this with the mouse you will see the text "Activate licenses".
      Click on this check mark and you will see a new screen.
    • 3c: Click on Activate and Ok. Now the checkmark in the previous screen turns green.
    • 3d: Now double-click on the line you are working on and the screen that opens must show "License status active" on the top line.
    • 3e: If necessary, repeat the above for the eventualy other newly purchased organs.
  4. Restart Hauptwerk and you can install and use the organ.

Before download and install, note the following:

  1. Download all .CompPkg.Hauptwerk files.
  2. Load these files in the same folder and
  3. Do not change the file names and
  4. Do not unpack by hand.
  5. Check the MD5 checksums with the WinMD5 program, free to download from
    http://www.winmd5.com or http://www.fastsum.com
    If a checksum is incorrect, throw the wrong download file away from the PC and download that file again.
  6. Start Hauptwerk (File/Install organ....), selecteer in de map waarin u de bestanden zojuist hebt gedownload,
    het bestand met extensie .CompPkg_Hauptwerk_rar in Hauptwerk's component installer.
    Hauptwerk automatically finds the other files.
  7. If you get error messages, scroll to the end of the log file (this opens automatically if something goes wrong when unpacking) to see what goes wrong.
    Usually a file is missing, or there is a file in the wrong folder or a file is damaged.
  8. Before loading the organ, first have a look at the system information regarding the expected memory usage etc.

Note: Please contact us via the Contact form if you encounter any issues; we will try to assist you.

System requirements
of
the Thomas organ from the Grote kerk in Vianen:



De computer

To play the complete version of this sample set without restrictions requires a modern, fast computer with, for example, Windows 10 64 bit installed and around 32 GB of RAM.
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 Thomas organ can be downloaded. The set is protected with the Hauptwerk Protection System via the iLok account or dongle from your Hauptwerk program.
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

3 or 4 manuals or keyboards 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!





Table of memory usage
for
the Thomas organ from the Grote kerk in Vianen


Hauptwerk 6 (space needed on the hard drive is 34 GB)

The meaning of the columns:
A = Number of loaded channels
B = Compression applied?
C = Bit rate Pipe samples
D = Multi-release pipe loaded?
E = RAM usage, Operating System not included (GB)

Please note that the stated values are an approximation !

De nrs. 1-2-3: is for loading mode 16 bit, single release compressed (a possibility but we think the quality is insufficient).
De nrs. 4-5-6: is for loading mode 16-bit, compressed and multi release (the standard Hauptwerk loading mode).
De nrs. 7-8-9: is for loading mode 16 bit, uncompressed and multi release.
De nrs. 10-11-12: is for loading mode 20-bit, compressed and multi release.
De nrs. 13-14-15: is the loading mode 20 bit, multi release uncompressed (we prefer this if you have enough memory).
There are of course many more variants, e.g. pipe samples loaded at 24 bit and sounds at 16 bit, etc.
If you're having trouble, send us your question by filling in the Contact form.

Screen layout

the Thomas organ from the Grote kerk in Vianen



Tab 1 : Pictures


vianen_05
Church
vianen_04
Organ front

This tab shows the front of the organ and if you click on the picture you will see the church.



Tab 2 : Extended: (simple stop representation)


vianen_03
Register panel

On this tab a simple representation of the stops of this organ. The buttons with bleu text are added voor Hauptwerk using samples of this organ. The button "Motor" turns the wind engine on.
De knop "Tremulant Hoofdwerk": The Hoofdwerk does not have a tremulant on the real organ, but for the enthusiast we have made one that you can switch on with this button.
Note: Some stops of the Hoofdwerk have a (partially) modulating tremulant and you can adjust this to your taste via the voicing.
E.g. Bourdon 16' notes 36 up to 59 and Mixtuur the entire stop.

With the 3 sliders at the top right, the volume of the different channels can be set, which allows you to broadly determine your listening position.

The button "Unda Maris - Praestant(Disc)": As you can see, this button is split horizontally. If you press the top part of the button, you will hear the Unda Maris 8'. These are the same samples as Praestant 8' Disc, but tuned a bit too low. If you press the lower part, you will hear the Praestant 8' (Disc) but then in tune.

The button "Mixture" (Hoofdwerk): This button is split vertically. If you press the left part, you will hear the Mixtuur 2 - 4 ranks and if you press the right part, you will hear the complete Mixtuur 4 - 6 ranks.

The button "Sexquialter": This button is also split vertically. If you press the left part, you hear only the 2 2/3' (lowest octave 1 1/3') and if you press the right part you will hear the Sexquialter complete 2 ranks.



Tab 3 : Schakelaars: (Switches)


vianen_06
Switches

Most elements of this tab do not actually need to be visible, but for interested parties it still gives a a bit of an impression of what needs to be done to get a sample set of this size to work.
Keep in mind that behind each (manual) button there are 56 long, 56 long release, 56 medium release and 56 short release samples and about the same amount for the recorded tremulant. The same applies to the pedal, but always 30 pieces.

It is also useful to know that if you right-click on a switch you can immediately access the correct voicing screen.

In the column "Speelhulpen" (Playing aids) you will find two buttons:

In de kolom "Speelhulpen" vindt u nog een aantal knoppen:

With the button "Trekkergeluid" (Tracker noise) you can choose whether or not to hear the sounds of the trackers.
With the button "Manuaal Kopp. B/D" you can link bass and treble of the manual coupler.



Tab 4 : Origineel: (Original Console)


vianen_07b
The original console

On this tab On this tab you will find a virtual representation of the console as original as possible.

This allows you to easily link the keyboards to Hauptwerk via MIDI.

Note some differences with the extended version:
1st: In the picture the highest key is F'''. However, for Hauptwerk we have added 2 keys, Fis''' and G'''. To use these keys you must if you link the keyboards with Hauptwerk first press the lowest key and then G'''. After this you can use all the samples.

2nd: The Unda Maris 8' on the real organ has 3 positions:
A: Switched off.
B: You hear the Unda Maris. To enable it, click on the nameplate of the Unda Maris (it turns yellow). This voice is actually just the Praestant 8' Diskant but the organ builder has reduced the wind pressure a bit so that this stop sounds a bit too low.
C: If you press the register tracker, the Praestant 8' Treble will sound at normal pitch.

3rd: Fluit 4', Roerquint 3', Roerquint 6' and the tremulant of the hoofdwerk cannot be used through this screen because they are missing in the real organ.

4th: The Manual coupler has 2 buttons for divided bass and treble. If you find this annoying, you can link bass and treble via the button "Manual Coupling B/D" in the "Schakelaars" tab.

5th: The Mixture of the Hoofdwerk also has 3 positions to operate in the same way as discussed above with the Unda Maris.

6th: The Sexquialter also has 3 positions to operate in the same way as discussed above with the Unda Maris.



Tab 5 : Wind


Het windmodel
The windmodel

On these tabs a schematic representation of the wind supply of this organ.
With the various sliders you can control the supply of wind for the bellows and the various wind chests.
With the "R" or reset buttons you can return to the settings that we think are the most suitable (default values).
With the button "Sygsoft" at the bottom right you can reset all 7 sliders in one time.

Important:
If you decide not to load a part of this sample set (e.g. your computer RAM memory is too small and you choose e.g. to omitting all "Rear" samples) then the wind consumption decreases by 33% and then the organ becomes much less wind sensitive than it actually is.
In that case, go to Organ settings/Organ preferences/Wind supply model and choose a value of approx. 150. In case you only need to load one channel e.g. "Middle", (the wind consumption decreases by 66%) then you need this value to about 300% to get the same result.
Obviously, you can choose any value if you don't like the organ's behavior. With the check mark on this same Wind supply model tab you can turn off the wind supply completely.

DEMO AFSPELEN
L. Moree - Lofzang van Maria

In October 2021 we recorded the Thomas organ de Grote Kerk in Vianen for Hauptwerk.

Short history:

The first organ in the Grote Kerk in Vianen was built by Abraham Meere in Empire style and dates from 1803. It consisted of an organ with Hoofdwerk (Great), upper work and attached pedal (fixed).
Over time, several builders worked on the organ until the interior was sold during the church restoration in the 1950s.
The existing cases were moved to the tower wall and given a light color scheme.
Willem van Leeuwen built a new organ in the existing cases. The organ then had a Hoofdwerk (Great), a Rugwerk (Positiv) and free pedals. A third keyboard was reserved as well as some voices on the Hoofdwerk.

Ca. 2005: Van Leeuwen's organ was in urgent need of restoration. The pipe work was often broken, the wind supply was no longer good - the organ had a VEKA windchest system optimized by Van Leeuwen - and the mechanism was often worn out.
After a thorough preparation period, it was decided to sell the Van Leeuwen organ and have a new organ built by Manufacture d'Orgues Thomas.
This organ was completed in 2010. The existing cases were restored and restored to the Abraham Meere situation (for example, the Rugwerk became empty again).




About the recordings



Three channel technology

slidersvianen.png
Schuifjes op de tab "speeltafel"

This sample set was recorded from three positions in stereo (24 bit 96kHz).
The set comes with a Sygsoft devised 3-channel technique whereby the user may set the listening position themselves.
There are 3 positions, namely :
1: Front, recorded very close to the organ. This provides a very direct recording that is useful for study purposes.
2: Middle, this recording was made at about 3 times the distance used in the front recording.
3: Rear, recorded far from the organ is used as surround.
Through three sliders (0-100%), a mix can be made of the three positions that is to your liking.
More information see: "System requirements".

Other details
