This is a followup to my prior upload with the Scots' Rieger...
Hauptwerk VI is here, and sounding great! A major addition to V was the mixer and reverb system. I have experimented with this and found it can bring new life to dry samplesets and even older sets. In VI the internal audio system again gets reworked with the option to run all the internal processes, including convolution reverb, at 96kHz. While this is resource intensive, the result speaks for itself.
Here, the Inspired Accoustics Scots' Church Rieger sampleset gets virtually transported to the Abbey of Saint-Étienne, Caen courtesy of the multi-channel and high fidelity Impulse Response files available from Sonus Paradisi.
We start with a stereo set in a relatively dry accoustic, and end up with a multi-channel surround set in a fantastic Cathedral accoustic.
1) I have truncated the release tails Voicing/Panning mixer to 250ms for both Perspective 1 and Perspective 2
2) I have set Perspective mix for 1 and 2 to 100% (this duplicates the rank output for the next step)
3) Perspective 1 of each division is routed to its own "Front" Primary Bus (Sw, Gt, Ped etc)
4) Perspective 2 of each division is routed to its own "Rear" Primary Bus (Sw-Rear, Gt-Rear etc)
5) Each of these primary busses has an individual IR applied (The Caen IR set includes individual IRs to simulate placement of each of the organ divisions in 3D space)
- Sample rate (for audio engine and audio output) : 96kHz
- Real-time audio pitch-shifting quality - Higher Definition
Note: this is highly CPU intensive - I have had to sacrifice both a little latency and some polyphony for this setup; but I think the balance is worth it for this, slightly crazy, application!
