To play the virtual Flentrop organ of Schiedam you must have at least the following:
1st: To play the full version of this sample set without restrictions, you will need a modern, fast computer with at least 32 GB of RAM and, e.g. Windows 10 64 bit installed.
Obviously Hauptwerk must also be installed with the latest version 5.0.1 (or higher) Advanced.
It is said that the best results are achieved using Apple-MacIntosh computers; however, we have no experience with this.
It is difficult to make exact statements about what is needed. The "mother" website hauptwerk.com provides much information about this issue.
Prerequisites.
Please note: This information applies to the newest version of Hauptwerk.
This virtual organ is delivered on one 32GB USB Drive. The set can also be downloaded.
The set is protected with the Hauptwerk Protection System via the iLok account or dongle from your Hauptwerk program.
Below is a table of memory usage.
On other systems, these values can vary considerably!
Please note that your Operating System also requires considerable memory.
Table giving memory requirements for Hauptwerk. (space needed on the hard drive, around 40.5 GB)
The meaning of the columns:
A = Number of loaded channels
B = Compression applied
C = Bit rate Pipe samples
D = Multi-release pipe loaded
E = RAM usage, Operating System not included (GB)

Please note that the stated values are an approximation !.

The pink part (16 bit) is a possibility but we think the quality is insufficient.
The yellow area is the standard Hauptwerk loading mode: 16-bit compressed and multi release.
The light green area is for loading mode 16 bit, uncompressed and multi- release.
The dark green area is for loading mode 20-bit compressed and multi release.
The dark blue area is the loading mode 20 bit multi release uncompressed. We prefer this if you have enough memory.
The omission of Récit is also a big difference. Too bad about the loss of possibilities.
There are of course many more variants. E.g. pipe samples loaded at 24 bit and sounds at 16 bit, etc.

Sygsoft-console

3 (or 4) keyboards and a (possibly 30 note) pedal or of course a complete electronic organ with MIDI output.
Beautiful consoles specifically for use with Hauptwerk are commercially available.
In the Netherlands you can go for example to
HSMuziek
Noorlander Orgelmakerij
Mixtuur
Bovenschen Virtual Organs
Sonarte orgels op maat
The hobbyists among us, using electronics from, e.g. WIRA or MGB can equip their own consoles with MIDI. WIRA or MGB can equip their own consoles with MIDI.
We ourselves have done this on a homemade organ with Heyligers-manuals.
4e: De geweldige geluidskwaliteit van Hauptwerk komt heel goed tot zijn recht via een zeer goede hoofdtelefoon b.v. AKG of Sennheiser. Wij geven de voorkeur aan het aansluiten van de geluidskaart op een (eventueel meer-kanalige) geluids-installatie. Boven genoemde bedrijven kunnen u ook adviseren over eventuele aankopen op dit gebied. Wat u beslist niet moet doen is Hauptwerk beluisteren via in de monitor ingebouwde luidspreker(tjes) of via een setje computerluidsprekers van 10 Euro!
