  • Aliasing due to repitching

    Update: There is no audible aliasing in Hauptwerk 6 (published in 2020) due to the new quality of audio processing. The improvement of the audio quality in Hauptwerk 6 is tremendous and well worth the upgrade.

    What is written below, applies only to the older versions of Hauptwerk, and it was first published in 2013.

    Hauptwerk v. 4.0 uses very sophisticated pitch control of the organ pipe sample. Repitching happens due to various circumstances: by tuning the instrument up or down, due to the wind fluctuations, due to the tremulant, due to changing temperaments, etc. Repitching has a lot of meaningful functions in Hauptwerk during performance even at the original organ tuning, unless the interpolation is switched off in the Organ Settings.

    At the same time, Hauptwerk produces some harmonic distortion when the sample is repitched by more than few cents. When the base pitch of the sample is sufficiently high, the harmonic distortion manifests itself as aliasing - new sub-harmonics are produced and heard more or less prominent. In this indirect way, repitching contributes to the audio distortion which affects playback. Continue reading
