Two 10 stop evaluation sample sets are available for free download. The first comprises just the Chancel samples whilst the second set adds the Nave and Surround samples. These sample sets are fully functioning without time-out or limited compass ranks and are provided on a “donation-ware” basis which encourages a donation to the Armley Schulze organ maintenance fund should a decision be taken not to purchase either the 32 or 57 stop Armley sets (the price of these sets includes a donation to the fund). Please see below for the full licensing terms.


The memory requirement at Hauptwerk default loading conditions (16 bit, lossless compression, all loops and releases) is approximately 1636 MB for the single-channel set and approximately 4823 MB for the multi-channel set. The single-channel evaluation sample set is compatible with Hauptwerk Free edition, but only if the set is loaded at 16 bit with lossless compression and - crucially - the multiple sample loops drop-down box is set to “Load only first”.


Although the sample set is small, the samples (24 bit, 48 kHz) are identical to those found in the larger sets which, along with the array of couplers, pistons and other playing aids, should allow ample opportunity for evaluation. Separate samples for all tremulant affected stops are also included, along with the ability to control the volumes of all divisions and chancel, nave and surround recording positions.


The single-channel set features the chancel samples only.
