  • VTP organ programs

    Do any of the available programs have "Harmony" capability for the right hand?

    In the sense of automated or computerised accompaniment - no.

    The closest would be the organists use of 2nd touch in melody's and counter melody's.

      A couple of years ago I tried the MidiTizer free program with my laptop. I used my Lowrey Majesty as the controller and audio system. It functioned BUT latency really defeated the effort. I assumed the laptop wasn't up to the job. I am now ready to put in a little more effort.

      How much computer capacity do I need to do the job. Also what size touch screen do i need without going overboard?

            I don't like to do things more than one or two times. Likewise I like to piggyback others experience.

            I found an affortable deal on a computer and touch screen on Ebay.

            The MIDI capability on my organ is as follows.

            Upper 1
            Lower 2
            Pedal 3
            Lower - right of split 4
            Drums 10

            I assume I can use 4 for a solo manual.

            Bearing in mind I am a hobbiest and not a serious player. I'm also not endowed with a lot of money.

            Which software program would you recommend I purchase?

              Well I have Hauptwerk, and feel that it is a 'cashing in machine' so I know how you feel!

              My feeling at this moment is to ask what type of music you want to play? and on what type of organ?, at the moment only Classical organs, pianos, harpsichords and Theatre organs have been sampled with Hauptwerk and the MidiTzer program is WurliTzer based only - 2 or 3 manual. However, you can change the soundfonts relatively easily on MidiTzer which you cannot do at all on the Hauptwerk system unless you are the developer of the soundsets.

              From what you have said, I would have a go at registering for the MidiTzer download of the either the 2 or 3 manual WurliTzers and also register yourself on the MidiTzer forum where a great bunch of enthusiastic guys will talk you through all you need to know.

                Ok

                I'll go with the 3 manual Miditizer. If I like it a lot I can look at Hauptwerk later. The computer I'm considering has the capability to support rither. I'm a Wurlitizer theater fan anyway.

                  Hey, thanks for this notice! I knew HW had begun to include Wurlitzer soundsets, but harpsichords I didn't realize. Am working on adding MIDI to an old Allen electronic harpsichord and was wondering where I'd be able to find a sound engine to drive with it.

                    What like this...

                    For more information visit the http://www.hauptwerk.com/downloads/i...ent-downloads/ webpage.


                    For cheaper alternatives than Hauptwerk, visit PrecisionSound for HALion Kontakt I have loaded PrecisionSounds .wav files into a few samplers now with no issues.
                    http://www.store.precisionsound.net/blanchetinfo.php they have The Blanchet Cembalo Harpsicord. - A big Harpsicord recorded in Stereo and with all the acoustic reverberation settings - think I might have a punt at this one myself.
                    http://www.store.precisionsound.net/cembaloinfo.php and the Cembalo Harpsicord

                    Also this came up when I goggled it...
                    Dutch Beurmann Harpsicord
                    http://www.realsamples.net/index.htm...eurmann319.htm Did not check what sampler the files run on for this one - You'll need to check.
