ARMLEY SCHULZE COMPLETE

HAUPTWERK SPECIFICATION - ARMLEY SCHULZE 57 STOP (COMPLETE)
Alongside the standard 57 stop organ, which only incorporates the couplers and playing aids that are found on the real instrument, an enhanced organ definition file is also provided as part of the 57 stop sample set. This expands the range of possibilities by including sub- and super-octave couplers for Swell, Choir and Echo, Basscouplers for all manuals, a 32 note pedal compass, additional composition options for the Swell Gamba and Cymbel as well as a virtual enclosure for the Echo division.

Various additional stops using carefully manipulated versions of the Armley samples have also been provided. These allow for a “clean” Great chorus to 2 foot pitch, an extension of the Swell flute family, the provision of a cornet on the Echo alongside a couple of useful enhancements to the Pedal. Additionally, the Great 16’ and 8’ reeds can be played on the Choir - the appearance of the Great Trompete on the Choir may be separately voiced to give true solo reed possibilities. The standard and enhanced organs are available in single-channel (Chancel only) and multi-channel (Chancel, Nave and Surround) versions.

A comprehensive range of control options is available in the Settings screen for all organ definitions, allowing the overall balance of individual divisions and perspectives, with a five preset memory function provided for store and recall. In addition, flexible control of noise samples and other elements of organ control (such as stop delay and alternate Swell response) is included, along with a section dedicated to the enhanced organ controls.

Various screen views have been programmed, which include pages optimised for those using two display monitors. The left and right hand jamb views take advantage of Hauptwerk v4’s ability to create flexible screen layouts with differing aspect ratios, of particular benefit to those using screens in a portrait orientation.

Computer requirements vary depending on whether the single or multi-channel set is loaded. The sample memory limit of 3 GB for Hauptwerk Basic edition means that Hauptwerk Advanced Edition should be considered essential for both single and multi-channel variants of the complete set. For the single channel set, a decent dual core or (ideally) quad core processor is recommended, alongside 16 GB of system memory (RAM). The multi-channel complete set really does require 32 GB or more of system RAM, alongside a fast (i5/i7) quad core processor.

The following memory usage table gives approximate memory requirements for various loading configurations when loading the single-channel sample set (Chancel samples only). Note that memory requirements are significantly reduced if the tremulant affected samples are not loaded.
Single channel

* Multiplying by 3 will give an approximate figure. For instance, all three stereo channels loaded at 24 bit, all loops and lossless compression has been measured as requiring 50878 MB of RAM. It is of course possible to load just two channels (eg Chancel and Surround only), in which case simply multiply these figures by 2.
