Kispest Pipe Organ Samples

System requirements and recommendations

It is intended and required that the Kispest (KO) Pipe Organ Samples be operated within Hauptwerk, a virtual pipe organ host software application, purchased separately. The Trial Edition works with the Hauptwerk Free Edition once the Kispest Organ is loaded so that the Free Edition's RAM and polyphony limitations are met.

System requirements for Kispest Pipe Organ Samples
Platform PC/Mac
Host software

Hauptwerk version 3.23 or later
Advanced Edition is recommended, Basic Edition is required
compatible with Hauptwerk Free Edition

CPU

Quad-Core is recommended
Dual-Core is required

Sound card ASIO compatible recommended

For further information, please refer to Hauptwerk's detailed requirements.

Detailed RAM guidelines

Hauptwerk loads all samples in the computer's RAM, with several loading options available according to your computer's specification. The Kispest Organ was specifically designed and post processed in such a way that it will load with significantly less RAM footprint once the 'first loops only' loading option is selected. We recommend using Hauptwerk's built-in lossless memory compression to reduce the loading size. Below we have summarised the RAM requirements with their corresponding quality options.

'Reduced' organ definition (ODF) files are provided for all versions (wide-stereo/stereo/quad/adjustable) in order to allow maximum flexibility in the loading setup. These reduced version load only 2 release layers out of the available 3 thus making the RAM footprint reduced. In all other features the Reduced ODF files are equivalent to the originals.

Please note: although these RAM requirements include Hauptwerk*'s own memory consumption as well, some additional RAM may be still required for the operating system itself, which are not included in these figures.

Also note that Windows is capable of loading more content than your available RAM, loading (paging) the additional sample data to your hard drive, reading it once the sound is needed (played). In some cases this will cause glitches in the sound when played in realtime since the hard drive is slower to access than the computer's RAM, but makes the full library usable in offline music composition and recording even if you do not have the required amount of RAM.
