A number of elements are essential for playing and experiencing the Hauptwerk samplesets:
1. First of all, a powerful computer is required.
A Hauptwerk sampleset consists of a combination of many recordings. Per pipe, per register (combination) and at various places in the room. As soon as you activate a register and press a key, many actions are sent simultaneously. This naturally increases as soon as you start playing with multiple registers or multiple tunings. Only a powerful computer is able to make this 'communication' run smoothly and without hitches. At Content Orgels we only work with the most powerful (Octa-Core) computers, and our colleagues are constantly informed of the most recent developments in the computer field.
2. A reliable, durable and solid organ furniture is important for years of playing pleasure
In addition to the software, a sampleset and a powerful computer, an organ cabinet is of course also required. This can vary from a simple 'console' setup to a beautifully designed organ. The desired set-up and composition is of course entirely dependent on your personal wishes. It is important that the parts used in the composition of your organ are of high quality. The selection of keyboards and their 'touche', the adjustment of the pedal, the woodwork used for the organ cabinet and other important elements. After all, a Hauptwerk organ furniture can - even after renewal of samplesets or computer - form the basis for your playing pleasure for more than 25 years! Content Orgels works together with reliable partners in the composition of its organ furniture. All organ furniture is assembled and built by one Dutch furniture maker. In addition, we build our organs entirely according to the current BDO or AGO standards. So reliable!
3. Operation of your Hauptwerk organ via touchscreen or stops
In addition to the selection of software, computer and the right organ furniture, it is also important to think about the most appropriate way of operation. After all, the Hauptwerk software on the computer must be operated. This can be done by means of large touchscreens, physical registers or a combination of both. When selecting touchscreens, it is important that they have a very high sensitivity, because you also want to be able to register or unregister quickly in the heat of your organ playing. Content Orgels uses high-quality touchscreens, which are also used in the car industry. There, road safety comes first, which requires a very high sensitivity rate. In addition to using these touchscreens, Content Orgels also makes it easier to operate the Hauptwerk software by applying its own 'Content User Interface'. In this way you do not directly operate the complex software, but you can easily find your way in a well-arranged layout. Very handy!
4. Last but not least: for the right sound experience, a good audio system is invaluable.
When experiencing a pipe organ (sample set), the quality of reproduction is of course essential. It's a shame to spend money on a sampleset that can't be displayed properly. A good audio system includes the correct adjustment of amplification, a high-quality sound card and high-quality (passive) speakers. Content Orgels also works with its own audio protocol, whereby the translation of digital recordings (software) into analog audible sounds takes place without loss of quality. This means that we apply strict selection to the choice of audio materials, and that we develop as much as possible in-house. For example, Content uses its own amplifiers in its Hauptwerk Cambiare organs, combined with an innovative passive HQ audio system. Only the best is good enough.
