Comparing The Scots’ Church sample set with a real recording


I recently created a video that compares the Hauptwerk and a real recording side-by-side with Bach’s BWV 565. I added a little reverb to match it up as best I can. This may be of interest to those here: https://youtu.be/005QCNqAVH8you

This is very well done James. To the untrained ear, the differences are very subtle. Hauptwerk as a platform has matured over the years, and the current realism with a good sample set is astonishing. (One need only look at the various pages of the mixer to get a glimpse "under the hood" of what is happening in the CPU in real-time). Martin Dyde is a genius!

Very interesting!!

Clearly the real organ still has more reverb - too much in my opinion - the notes all get mixed up together and fog the sound. I preferred the HW rendition.

However I wonder how much sound compression was applied by the video camers/s (Presumbaly not the same camera for both). Sound compression is the ruination of all audio and this is what may have spoiled the real organ.
