For general queries and issues with the installation and use of Lavender Audio sample sets, please use email to let us know the details of of your problem.


All existing Lavender Audio sample sets have been repackaged to offer full compatibility with Hauptwerk V, VI, VII and VIII, which is currently the most recent version. Milan Digital Audio have ceased their support for Hauptwerk version 4 sample set licence updates; this means that all sample sets requiring dongle/iLok licence updates are now only available in the latest Hauptwerk V+ format. As all evaluation sample sets, along with the Haverhill OIC Mini, Groton, Little Waldingfield and South Suffolk sets do not require a dongle/iLok licence update, these sets all continue to be available for both Hauptwerk v4 and Hauptwerk V, VI, VII and VIII.

Please note that all previously purchased Lavender Audio sample sets will continue working indefinitely if the decision is taken not to proceed with an upgrade to the latest version of Hauptwerk. However, as Hauptwerk v4 is now completely unsupported, any problem with the Hauptwerk v4 dongle might render an old installation unusable.

When moving to Hauptwerk V+, all Lavender Audio sample sets (including evaluation sets) will need to be replaced with the latest versions. These are available for free download or may be ordered on a USB memory stick for the standard 20 GB Pounds cost per USB memory stick (including worldwide Airmail delivery) - please see the media purchasing options on the Order pages of this website. Some Hauptwerk V+ sample sets are available for download via the links below ... otherwise, please contact Lavender Audio for download information as necessary.

Once a Lavender Audio sample set has been purchased, a licence activation code will be provided by Lavender Audio, usually within 24 hours. This needs to be redeemed to the customer’s iLOK account in iLOK License Manager - the procedure is outlined on the iLOK website Redeeming a License Code section. Once redeeemed, the new sample set licence(s) may be moved to the iLOK key or used in the cloud licensing system. Please note that there normally doesn’t need to be any involvement with Milan Digital Audio when it comes to sample set licensing.


Hauptwerk V+ customers who are interested in purchasing a sample set for the first time may also use the links provided in Table 1. Note, however, that the appropriate set will need to be purchased and activation code applied before the set can be successfully loaded in Hauptwerk. Download information for new customers of sample sets in Table 2 will be provided individually once an order for that set has been received.




Almost all of the Hauptwerk V sample sets have had the latest patches and alterations incorporated; the only exception is a minor addition to the St Mary-le-Bow sample set. This update patch (v1.20) provides an additional option in the Settings screen for the Extended multi- and single-channel sets, allowing the Cromorne to be switched from being played on the Choir Organ to the Great Organ.

At present, the only way of evaluating a Lavender Audio Hauptwerk sample set is to download the Evaluation version which may be found on the relevant sample set webpage; Hauptwerk V+ versions of all Evaluation sets have been created and are available alongside the Hauptwerk v4 versions.

This licence update is managed by Milan Digital Audio and - once purchased - will allow all currently owned sets to be used with Hauptwerk V+.
