We recorded the Bätz organ in the Oude Kerk of Zeist in the province Utrecht februari 2014.
This well-known organ built 1843 has 23 stops, 2 manuals en pedals.
As usual, the sample set was produced using multi-release technology on all ranks.
This organ is now available.
We recorded the Pels & van Leeuwen positif organ of the "Grote of Catharijnekerk" in Heusden (North Brabant) in January 2014.
This organ was built in 1990 and has 6 stops on one manual and fixed pedals.
For Hauptwerk we have added a Subbas 16' on the pedals.

Note: This sample set can be properly used with the free version of Hauptwerk.

We have planned to make an ODF to join the Pels & van Leeuwen organ to the Lohman organ (using a fake 3th manual). So you can play both organs from one console.

This organ is now available.

Front of the Ottes organ in Móstoles, 2004

In May of 2010, we recorded the organ of "La Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción" in Móstoles (a suburb of Madrid, Spain)
for Hauptwerk. This organ of 21 stops, divided over 2 manuals and pedal along with a third coupling manual, was built by the organ builder Eppo Rynke Ottes who is originally from the Netherlands.
The samples were recorded in 24 bits, 96 kHz. with six microphones: 2 x Neumann, 2 x Røde and 2 x AKG.
Again we recorded three samples for each pipe so that we can make the sample set "multi release" meaning: a very short sample for the staccato notes, a short sample for the portamento notes and finally, a normal sample for the longer notes.
The organ is now available for Hauptwerk version 4.
