To play the virtual choir organ of Leens from 1982, these are the minimum requirements:
1st: To play the complete version of this sample set without limitations requires a modern, fast computer with, for example, Windows 10 64 bit installed and around 2 GB of RAM.
Naturally must be Hauptwerk also installed with at least the 5 version.
It is difficult to make exact pronouncements about minimum requirements. The "mother" website, hauptwerk.com, has a wealth of information. Prerequisites.
This virtual organ is delivered on one DVD
Here follows a table giving the memory requirements for the various programs.
On other systems, these requirements could vary!
Do take into consideration that the operating system itself also has substantial memory requirements.

2nd: A good internal or external sound card. For more information go to: Hauptwerk.com. The same card can, in some cases, also provide the connection from keyboard to computer.
3rd: One musical instrument keyboard, a pedalboard (at least 25 keys) or a complete organ with MIDI out.
Beautiful consoles specifically designed for Hauptwerk are commercially available.
In the Netherlands these are available through, for example, HSMuziek or Mixtuur.
Those who are technically inclined can provide their keyboard with MIDI capability using hardware from, for example, WIRA MGB. We ourselves have done this using a Heyligers organ dating from around 1975 (using WIRA hardware). The conversion was about 300 Euro and everything has worked perfectly for years.
4th: The excellent sound quality of Hauptwerk can be very well realized using a high quality set of headphones, e.g. AKG or Sennheiser. We prefer connecting the sound card to (a possibly multi-channel) sound system.
The above mentioned companies, HSMuziek and Mixtuur can give advice with respect to possible purchases in this area. What you must definitely not do is listen to Hauptwerk using your built-in monitor speakers or a set of 10 Euro computer speakers!
