    Default Virtual pipe organ software

    Has anybody had experience with Grande Orgue (GO), Hauptwerk or other VPO software?

    I used GO a few years ago, lost it when the PC crashed and didn't load it on the replacement, so this morning decided to (free) download the latest version and some sample sets; found a new French site with a load of sample sets including some Cavaille Coll organs among ohers, also some cinema and electronic organs, Hammond B3 among others, plus some other instruments, Harpsichords, Clavecins, and a few wind instruments, any of which could be used on the virtual organ in place of pipe samples/stops.

    Initial aim will be to try and do the John Stanley sonatas as Harpsichord and flute (unless I can find some Theorbo samples).

    As a matter of interest I don't play any instrument, I "play" my virtual instrument(s) via MIDI files generated by Finalé notation software; download scores from IMSLP enter into Finalé, edit if needed, then output as MIDI to GO, save as MP3.

    (keeps me occupied!)

    Hauptwerk is amazing, the best out there! but you need a special MIDI interface like this:

    Otherwise you won't be able to manage all the features it has.

    Of course you can make your DIY one like this:

    This is an example of what can be done with the Grand Orgue software using harpsichord and flute sample sets a Corelli sonata
