Sample Set: Laurenskerk - Transept Organ - 1959 Marcussen & Son
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Baroque
This trifle is a surprise recording. I've had this sample set up and running for just 3 days, and I have yet to even begin exploring it.

This is the 6-channel surround version. I've adjusted the perspective sliders to bring the Ruckpositive slightly more forward of the Hauptwerk, and to push the Brustwerk back a little.

The mediocre parish church pipe organ I first played, which became my first practice instrument and where I first held a church appointment back in the very early 1970's lacked the most important of stops - a Principal 4 on the Great to go with the Open Diapason 8. The upperwork, such as it was, resided in the Swell. The Great Open was a beautiful but lonely stop. Whenever I test out an organ - real or virtual - the stop I look for first is the Principal 4 and how it fits with its foundation.

This was just a bit of fooling around, using the HW principals of 8 and 4 with RP Gedackt 8 and Principal 4 coupled. Pedal consists of Principals of 8 and 4 underpinned by the Spitzflute 16 and coupled to the RP.

The test I apply to any organ is "could I practice all day on this basic sound?" The answer here is - emphatically - yes!
