To play the virtual Steendam organ of Apeldoorn, you need at least the following:
1e: 1st: In order to play the full version of this sample without limitations, you will need at least 12 GB of RAM and a modern fast computer with, e.g., Windows XP64 or Windows 7 64 bit installed.
You must also have Hauptwerk installed: at least version 4.0 Advanced.
We are told that the best results are possible with Apple MacIntosh computers. However, we cannot speak from experience.
It is difficult to make precise statements about what is needed. On the "parent" website, hauptwerk.com, you will find lots of information. Prerequisites
Note: This information is written for the latest versions of Hauptwerk.
The virtual organ Steendam Apeldoorn comes on a 32GB USB thumb drive. The set can also be downloaded.
The set is protected with the Hauptwerk Protection Sytem via the dongle that goes with your Hauptwerk program.
Below is a table of memory requirements.
On other systems, these values may differ significantly!
Please note that your Operating System also requires a considerable amount of memory.
Table of memory usage in Hauptwerk. (Space needed on the hard drive is about 37 GB; for organ cache see column K below)
Meaning of the columns:
A = Front, Middle or Rear samples loaded (1 channel)
B = Front + Middle, Front + Rear or Middle + Rear samples loaded (2 channels)
C = Front + Rear + Middle samples loaded (3 channels)
D = tremulant samples loaded
E = Combination samples loaded
F = compression applied
G = Bit rate pipe samples
H = Pipe samples sampling frequency (kHz)
I = Bit rate remaining samples
J = Sampling frequency other samples (kHz)
K = Multi release pipe samples
L = Multi release other samples
M = RAM usage, Operating System not included (GB)
N = Organ cache (GB)

It is possible to use the red part of the table, but we find that 14 bits provides insufficient quality.
The pink section is slightly better (16-bit), but still single release.
The yellow section represents the standard Hauptwerk loading mode: 16 bit, compressed and multi release.
The light-green area is for the loading mode: 16 bit, uncompressed and multi release.
The dark-green area is for the loading mode: 24-bit, compressed and multi release.
The blue area is for the maximum attainable loading mode: 24-bit, uncompressed multi release.
Of course there are many more variants, e.g., load the pipe samples in 24 bit and sounds in 16 bit, etc.

2nd: A good sound card for your computer. For more information, visit: Hauptwerk.com.
In many cases this card can also handle the MIDI connections from the console to the computer.

Sygsoft-console

Two manuals or keyboards and a (possibly 30 note) pedal or, alternatively, a complete electronic organ with MIDI output.
Beautiful consoles, specifically for use with Hauptwerk, are also commercially available.
In the Netherlands, you can obtain these from, e.g. HSMuziek, The hobbyists among us can use electronics available from e.g., WIRA or MGB to add MIDI to their keyboards. We ourselves have done this on a homemade organ using Heyligers-keyboards (with hardware from WIRA). The cost of conversion was less than 300 Euros, and everything has been working perfectly.
4th: The amazing sound quality of Hauptwerk is best appreciated through very good headphones, e.g., AKG or Sennheiser. We prefer to connect the sound card to a (possibly multi-channel) sound system. The above mentioned companies, HSMuziek and Mixtuur, can also advise you on any purchases in this area. What you absolutely must not do is listen to Hauptwerk via the built-in monitor speakers of your computer or a set of computer speakers costing only 10 Euro!
