Sample Set for the free Enigma Organ designed by Al Morse

These sample sets are provided by Al Morse, and are in the form of Hauptwerk packages that can be installed directly.
The Wet set file is 857 MB (899,174,377 bytes) in size, and so might take some time to download.
The Dry set file is 670 MB (702,576,414 bytes) in size, and although smaller, could still take some time.

Al says:
"These organ sample sets are based on experiments with the Hauptwerk CODM system and various audio editing techniques. The organ contains derivations of samples which are all widely available free-of-charge. The resulting instrument can therefore be freely shared with the Hauptwerk community, although there are some minor restrictions against commercial use.

There is a "Wet" and a "Dry" organ set, compatible with both Hauptwerk versions 2 and 3.

A few of the features are:
1. A large 30 stop two manual instrument with complete sets of all the basic voice families: principals, flutes, reeds, strings.
2. True four-rank mixtures on each manual.
3. Copious couplers and a crescendo pedal.
4. The Wet set has three seconds of high quality built-in stereo reverberation.
The multiple release technique is used to preserve clarity on short notes.
The Dry set has very abrupt releases and was intended as a target for the impulse convolution used to form the Wet set.

The organ samples are derivations of those used in "Gernot's Happy Birthday Organ" from Prospectum, and "St. Stephen's Anglican Church Organ" by Nicholas Appleton.

This is version 3.31 of the Enigma Organ. I have "logically" re-voiced the organ so as to rebalance the pipes within and between ranks. I have also derived a new 16' Principal and 32' Contra-bourdon for the pedal division.
Reverberation in the Wet set has been redesigned to give about 2.8s. The additional touch-screen-friendly controls page should also improve usability.

The MD5 for the Wet set file is: 34E350FF4AB8DE4EDFB006B85630F5B9. The CRC32 is: 16E964B3.
The MD5 for the Dry set file is:
5B6DDFBCD08520BBFC5FEE0992D19227. The CRC32 is: 3F8C0DCD.
Instructions after downloading:
 - select "Save" when the download completes, and ensure that you remember where the file was placed;
 - close Internet Explorer (or other web browser) and then start the Hauptwerk program in the usual way;
 - select options "File -> Install" and browse to the location where the downloaded file was placed;
 - select the downloaded file and allow the installation to proceed.

You can then load the organ into the Hauptwerk program in the usual way.
The organs each load to about 1.4Gbyte of RAM, and should fully load into a reasonably clean 2Gbyte PC.
