Description: Wind pressure: 70 mm
Tuning: a' = ca. 435 Hz. (Hauptwerk 428,4 Hz.)
Temperament: Werckmeister III. (Of course in Hauptwerk this can be switched to equal temperament or another temperament)

The pedals on the real organ are fixed but to make it possible to play in Hauptwerk the Holpijp 8'; Prestant 4'; Roerfluit 4' and Octaaf 2' as a kind of transmission we have added a pedals to manual coupler.

Also we have added a copy of the Subbas 16' from the Lohman orgel.

4 Channel technique:

This sample set was recorded from three positions in stereo (24 bit 96kHz).
The set comes with a Sygsoft devised 3-channel technique whereby the user may set the listening position themselves.

There are 3 positions, namely :

1: Front, recorded very close to the organ. This provides a very direct recording that is useful for study purposes.

2: Centre (Middle), this recording was made at about 3 times the distance used in the front recording.

3: Rear, recorded far from the organ is used as surround.
Through three sliders (0-100%), a mix can be made of the three positions that is to your liking.
