Makes me want to become a composer = just so I can use it. Prolly not in this lifetime, oh well. OTOH, composers = in the list, did you catch that website? Take note!   But... it mentions that you can enter samples... but can you just use the organs already sampled? I assume it must allow that. I think most composers would just want to do that.   Andy   On Mon, 17 Jan 2005 17:57:10 -0800, Jonathan Orwig wrote > Gla you liked it! > > It was recorded using Martin Dyde's softwae sampler "Hauptwerk" > http://www.hauptwerk.co.uk > > Samples are mostly from a 1966 Schantz and a few other sources     A.B.Lawrence Pipe Organ Service PO Box 111 Burlington, VT 05402 (802)578-3936 Visit our website at www.ablorgans.com

I = don't think your post added much glory to the exchange. I think this should end right now. I didn't think your remarks about sheep and NZ was in good = taste. Let's get back to pipeorgans since I have no desire to engage in trading insults.

It was = well received at the organ dedication I played for a few years back and I = love playing it when the occasion presents itself. (As it is at St. = Hyacinth, the building clears in about 30 seconds, so that gets me through = the first page or two!) Richard       __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?

V. 1 of the software lacks realism in the swell box area and the tremulants, as well as having a bit of an issue with very short notes not sounding a natural release. Those and other issues are likely to be a thing of the past with V2, which is due to be released sometime later this year. I've played a bit with the beta version, and it is nothing short of amazing. Don't get me wrong - I still prefer a real pipe organ, but this software has been a great tool, as it gives me a VERY close idea of what a piece would sound like on the Real Thing. THe best output I have from this software sounds like exactly what it is - a good recording of a particular instrument. In fact, I would imagine a recording made with Version. 2 would be nearly indistinguishable from a "real" recording.   It's a great tool, and if you have a MIDI-enabled console, and a properly equipped computer you can have better sounds than you get with your average A**en, R***ers or whatever, and that at a MUCH lower price than what you would pay commercially.     >But... it mentions that you can enter samples... but can you just use the =   >organs already sampled? > I'm not sure what you mean by "enter samples"... if you mean create your own, yes   >I assume it must allow that.

(back) Subject: new subscriber From: "Cecil Rigby" <rigrax@earthlink.net> Date: Tue, 18 Jan 2005 01:40:15 -0500   Hi everyone-   After reading the PipeChat archives for a while I finally subscribed (as = if I didn't have enough emails to read already!) ;) Per the list FAQ, for those interested in such things, my (sort of) bio can be found at http://harrockhall.com/composers/rigby.htm   There are many of your names I recognized in the archives that I also see = in other groups, so I suppose there are some of you here who may recognize mine. Hi y'all! I look forward to being able to contribute to discussions occasionally. Since my publishing company takes almost all of my waking time, I just read what I can to keep up with what others are doing.   Right now I'm not playing anywhere except as the occasional substitute, though I'm hopeful that will change sometime early this year. But I do = have a church interested in having me restore their unused reed organ. I've refurbished quite a few in the past and thoroughly enjoy the challenge.   Lastly, I do want to invite you to visit my company's website and check = out some nice organ music there. While HHM was started in 1987, last year we added a publishing division for the first time, with choral works only, = but midyear began accepting organ submissions, and after that, handbell works. We just reopened the call for scores, so if you have something you'd like = to submit I'm certainly interested in seeing it. There.....I won't go on = about the website anymore except to say there's a lovely set of ten pieces from Bill Brusick coming down the pipes ( bad pun intended!) in a few weeks.   Oh, OK, before I sign off--- a quickie story..... When subbing for church organists I usually have to practice with their soloist or choir = beforehand (aside from my own practice time). Only one of the places I sub at has a pipe organ. For those that don't, I just love to watch the singers' = confused expressions when after a particularly bad registration mistake I slide off the bench while saying I need to go check the pipes and then quickly exit (quick trip to the nearest bathroom intended, of course!). The funniest = part of it all for me is that no one has *ever* tried to tell me there aren't = any pipes to check! I know, I get my thrills where I can..............   Best wishes---   Cecil Rigby rigrax@earthlink.net (personal) www.harrockhall.com crigby@harrockhall.com
