All versions of our harpsichord are recorded with AKG Perception 200 large diaphragm condenser microphones.
On the pictures you see the virtuale consoles of the different versions of our harpsichord for Hauptwerk.
The instrument has one manual, why then 2 manuals as shown?
The idea is to give the player of the instrument the possibility (if 2 manuals available) the 5 lowest keys of the harpsichord still to play. The lower manual is coupled down one octaaf to the upper.
De registratie van het bovenklavier gaat automatisch met die van het onderklavier mee.
All versions have an enclosure to simulate the effect of an open or closed instrument.

New: High resolution-version for Hauptwerk 4

We have used totaly new recorded samples 24 bit 96 kHz.

The 5 buttons give the same possibilitys.

The tuning is exactly equial a' 440 Hz.
While this samples are recorded with the high resolution of 24 bit and a samplerate of 96 kHz this version use some more then 1600 MB RAM excluding Windows. You can decrease this value by compressing the stops.
A table from the use of RAM you can see by pressing the button "Requirements".
With Hauptwerk 2 you have all the possibilitys to tune the instrument.
To make the instrument more interesting we have added per stop 7 notes: from MIDI note 24-c up to MIDI note 30-f#. If you connect the pedalboard to the extra manual you can use full pedals.
