The large Schyven / Van Bever organ of the Notre-Dame in Laeken (Brussels, Belgium) showcasts the height of romantic organ building in Belgium. Having worked together with Cavaillé-Coll, Pierre Schyven developed his own unique style of organ building. His organs show many similarities with the organs of the grand french master, but still display their own tonal character. Powerful reeds, beautiful solo flutes and a strong, but not piercing Tutti, mark the sound of this beautiful instrument. We are proud to be able to present this beautiful and powerful sound to the Hauptwerk community.

This sample set is available only for Hauptwerk 2 and above. It features around sixty combinations of this famous organ. The sample set features three release sample layers (the original recorded release plus two layers created artificially for staccato and portato notes) resulting in a superb rendering of the cathedral accoustics. The impulse responses used for the additional layers are included as a special bonus.

Note: The samples and ODF are not encrypted. Hence the samples may also be used with other sampler software and no Hauptwerk dongle is required.
