• Reballancing divisions using Hauptwerk mixer

    A user asked how to set the Hauptwerk mixer so that he can mix the perspectives of each division independently of other divisions of the same perspective.

  • Installation problems with multi-part packages

    Sometimes, I get messages like this from users: I buyed the Casavant Organ, two days ago, but it's impossible to install it. It always says there is an error on the basson 16 and that there is a missing volume. I tried several new downloads, but nothing changed. Continue reading

  • Sample sets and volume level adjustments

    A user asked how to adjust the overall audio volume of a sample set in Hauptwerk.

    Before proceeding, you should know that in general the sample set creator sets the default audio level of a sample set so that when tutti is used and fat chords played, it does not clip (Wiki explanation of the phenomenon) the audio stream. When the organ is large, this may result in single stops sometimes too quiet. Continue reading
