Hauptwerk

Hauptwerk™ is a virtual instrument software for the Mac and PC, playable from MIDI organs, MIDI keyboards and MIDI sequencers from Milan Digital Audio. It offers organists the ability to play some of the world's finest historic pipe organs virtually in the home, studio, or house of worship. Hauptwerk is specialized software that accurately models every aspect of a pipe organ, utilizing samples of pipes recorded chromatically from the original instruments. Hauptwerk brings history into the future with virtual instrument technology.

Hauptwerk is the required sampler for many Inspired Acoustics pipe organs and is available in different editions:

  • Free Edition: designed to try Hauptwerk and some trial virtual pipe organs
    • mono/stereo output, 256 polyphony limitation, maximum sample set RAM limitation of 1.5 GB, no per-pipe voicing, multi-monitor and wind-model support
  • Basic Edition: desigend to work with small virtual pipe organs
    • mono/stereo output, 1024 polyphony limitation, maximum sample set RAM limitation of 3.0 GB, no per-pipe voicing, multi-monitor and wind-model support
  • Advanced Edition: designed to work with any size of virtual pipe organ and setup
    • up to 512 channels of output, 32768 polyphony limitation with no software limitation of sample set RAM usage (wind-model support only for customers outside the US)

Inspired Acoustics recommends Hauptwerk Advanced Edition because many of IA virtual pipe organs utilize more than 3 GB of RAM. Basic and Advanced Editions ship with a physical USB-key holding the license for Hauptwerk and for virtual pipe organs that you purchase.

*Unlimited means there is no software limitation enforced by Hauptwerk on the maximum amount of memory it can take to load sample sets. Therefore, Unlimited means that Hauptwerk can use as much as RAM for loading virtual pipe organs as the computer's operating system allows, which is practically usually between 60% to 90% of the RAM installed in the computer when using a modern 64-bit operating system.

USB Key

Hauptwerk Basic and Advanced Editions ship with a physical USB-key holding the license for Hauptwerk itself and for virtual pipe organs that you purchase. This USB key can be updated with new licenses of virtual pipe organs using a License Update procedure available from Hauptwerk itself. Commercial sample sets licensed through the USB-key cannot be used with the Hauptwerk Free Edition without a USB-key.

Wind model

Hauptwerk's wind model feature is not currently available for customers located within the United States of America in either Basic or Advanced Edition.
