    Re: Reverb on Hauptwerk



    The most obvious answer would be to use wet with original ambient reverb already recorded into the samples.</P>


    Other than that, one of the excellent inexpensive Lexicon sound processing/reverb systems such asthe Lexicon MX 200 as a secondary alternative:</P>

    Lexicon MX 200 . . . MX 400 are the units chosen by Phoenix Organ for their reverb and surround sound systems.</P>

        There are actually very few "dry" (close sampled, no reverb) sample sets. The TO sets are dry, and there area small number ofexcellent classical dry sets (Skinner, PAB, others). The dry sets work well if played on a system installed in a reverberant space, or with some sort of added reverb. They don't sound particularly good "dry" -- unless you usually listen to an organ by sticking your head in the pipe chamber </P>


        Frankly, the best sounding results are from "wet" sample sets that include the natural reverb of the venue. External reverb boxes (with limited channel capacity) are not good IMHO. Convolution reverb and others done on the computer are better. Some aren't bad at all, but still lack the realism of the natural ambience.</P>


        HW users use a variety of PC-based systems, such as Sonar andReaperwith Pristine Space and others. I'd suggest a visit to the Hauptwerk forum and pose the question there, or do a forum search on "reverb", "convolution", etc.</P>


        Not all organs are in "cathedrals". Part of the charm (an understatement) of HW is the ability to play an instrument IN ITS SPACE. E.g., the Cappel in a space with a very short reverberation time, the Hinsz in certainly what most would descirbe as a "cathedal" space, the Trost in a space with about 2s natural reverb, etc. If you played the Trost with a "cathedral" reverb, you'd ruin the effect of the instrument (as some samples on http:contrebombarde.com/concerthall pretty well prove) </P>


        The next version of Hauptwerk (v4.0)will have the ability to accept VSTi plugins for convolution and other types of reverb natively. Many are looking forward to that since it will eliminate the need to run other programs (liek Sonar or Reaper) to accept the plugins. That's probably early next year, although we haven't been given a firm release date yet that I'm aware of.</P>
