    Ok, I seem to have got the fuzz away. Turns out I had sample size at 20 bits which adjusting to 24 seemed to take care of the problem. Thanks for the help.

    Here's an update on my VPO console. This photo is the final product minus a music rack, stain, and my monitor which I am debating placing where a music rack would be (and I'd just get all my hymnals and sheet music onto the PC). If I do want a music rack, the monitor will be on my right side.

      Glad you resolved your problem. You're using Grand Orgue, right? What sample set did you observe the problem with? I assume you reloaded the organ using the 24 bit samples?

      Thanks, John! I should get the first coat of stain on today.

      Yes, GO. It was using the St. John Cantius organ from Piotr Grawbowski. And yes, I've reloaded with 24 bit and it sounds good.

    Almost done! Just need to add some trim to hide the plywood edges but that's basically it!

    Well, that certainly is a three day transformation! Turned out really nice! The dark stain makes it look luxurious. Really like it! It looks out of place in the garage!!

      If only I could convince my parents to let me put it in the house. We are moving soon and on the list of wanted things is a "room big enough for Phil and his pal".

      If we can have "garage bands," why not "garage organists?"

        Plywood and dark stain does the trick!

      Software Update: I decided to try out Hauptwerk by purchasing a one month lite subscription. I am never going back. The sound quality is much better than GrandOrgue. If you have GO, I'd highly suggest purchasing a month subscription ($12.99) of HW to try it out.

        I'm of two minds on the subject. As I mentioned on my VPO thread, I was given a fully licensed Hauptwerk Advanced (version 4.2.1). I am thoroughly sold on it too, and wouldn't want to go back to GO or to the free version of HW that I had.

        I do think some sets sound cleaner on HW than they did on GO, but the big draw for me is the GUI voicing and the generally more advanced on-screen interface and functionality. That said, GO is certainly an amazing program for the price and will suit many players just fine.

        However, if I hadn't received it as a gift, I don't know when I would've made the leap to HW, as I'm leery of having (yet another) monthly bill to pay as a retiree on a limited budget. Truly, the extra convenience and the potentially better sound are worth paying for. But I'm glad GO exits because there are many who would be hard-pressed to pay either the subscription fee or the rather stiff purchase price.

      Downloaded and installed Augustine's Virtual Organs Great Romantic organ sample set for HW... it's awesome! Very authentic, large stoplist, a very nice reverb, now my favorite sample set. And, the best part, it's completely free! It does take up near 10 GB ram but I think it's definitely worth it. I suggest trying it out.
