Voxus (VVO) to sample Amsterdam's Westerkerk organ

VOXUS ORGANS TO SAMPLE AMSTERDAM's WESTERKERK ORGAN !!!

In many ways a setback, the Dutch population, now in a second Coronavirus wave, had to re-introduce restrictions in the movement of the population.

As a result of that, also concerts in the Westerkerk in Amsterdam returned to "YouTube productions". Here's the link to the "Farewell Concert" by the (now former) organist Jos van der Kooy:

MOST INTERESTING is the comment by Mr Van der Kooy during announcements, that Voxus Virtual Organs is in the process of sampling the Amsterdam organ - the main organ in the "Westerkerk" or "Western Church"

In itself good news, and I hope they will publish it within the foreseeable future.

Thanks Adri - so do I. And, even from a commercial perspective, it will be interesting to see whether it will be an exclusive "Hauptwerk V" sampleset, or whether it will also "work" on Hauptwerk IV. This will now be a largely commercial decision; at Sonus Paradisi, many dozens of samplesets remain viable options for Hauptwerk IV owners.

They recorded two other organs (I know of) in the Netherlands, but I haven't seen sample sets from these recordings, and thus I sincerely wonder about the "When?".

Not to get anyone hopes down, but trying to be realistic.

At last, a set to be excited for, I really hope it wont be botched like its Groningen counterpart.
