A 10 stop evaluation mini sample set is available for free download. This sample set is fully functioning without time-out or limited compass ranks and is provided on a shareware basis - please see below for the full licensing terms. Specifically, should the set prove to be useful and the decision is taken not to proceed with the purchase of one of the main sample sets based on the Hereford Cathedral organ (ie the Hereford 23, 46 or completed set when available) within 30 days, then the option exists to continue to use this set following the payment of a donation. By way of encouragement, when an appropriate donation is made, a link to an additional fully licensed installation package will be made available which, when downloaded and installed, will add an extra stop to the Swell (the Swell Vox Angelica).


In addition, the value of any such donations may be offset against the cost of any future purchase of a Hereford Cathedral sample set ... ie, the value of the donation will be deducted in full from the prevailing purchase price of the chosen sample set. Typically the mechanism for this will involve a partial Paypal refund following purchase.


Both the shareware and the licensed mini sets are fully compatible with Hauptwerk Free edition, versions 3 (minimum v3.23) and 4. The memory requirement at Hauptwerk default loading conditions (16 bit, lossless compression, all loops and releases) is approximately 1000 MB and any computer system which is able to run the standard St Anne’s Moseley sample set should have no difficulty with this mini set. Although this 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 hopefully allow ample opportunity for evaluation.


The evaluation mini set is available separately for both Hauptwerk version 3/4 and version 5 as follows ...
