Details

Melbourne Town Hall (MTH) Pipe Organ Samples is a fully playable, freely configurable, intuitively manageable and MIDI-controllable virtual pipe organ for the Hauptwerk™ virtual pipe organ software, for PC and Macintosh computers, delivering the sound of the 175-stop Hill, Norman & Beard - Schantz symphonic pipe organ of the Melbourne Town Hall, Australia, to your computer.

The sample set

The real pipe organ has been entirely virtualized, including all sounds of all of its pipes, all functions including the original tracker sounds are provided, allowing realistically sounding repetitive notes. With the KeyboardMass functionality, the inertia of the mechanics of the key action is modeled. By providing the additional feature of adjustability the response speed of the pipe speech when a key is released can be changed to your taste. Thus you can make the keyboards feel very heavy by increasing the slider values, or extremely responsive by decreasing.

Sample format

The final sample set has been made available in 48 kHz / 24-bit 2-channel stereo. Multiple lengthy loops were carefully selected for each sound sample.

Acoustics

The natural room acoustics representing the recording conditions are embedded in the samples with multiple release sample layers; the acoustics heard in the sample set corresponds to the sound heard in the Main Hall of the Melbourne Town Hall. The sample set is recorded in a way that it is also fully compatible with dry acoustic spaces and additional convolution reverberation.

Multiple release samples and multiple loops

Multiple loops and release samples are provided for each sample. Triggered to play back randomly, this elaborate looping results in sustained notes of unmatched realism. The loops were calculated in a well-planned way, yielding both shorter and longer loops for each sample. Multiple release samples provide realistic, note-off-triggered pre-recorded reverberation for different lengths of notes. For example, a short note, with sound not fully developed will produce a different reverberation than a long sustained note. This quality is preserved in the sample library by providing multiple release sample layers.

Sampled tremulants

Stops with the tremulant engaged were recorded separately on this pipe organ. This model is providing the real tremulant sound of the Grand Organ.

Advanced Graphical User Interface (GUI)

The graphical interface of this organ was carefully modeled by employing hundreds of photographs and measurement in full 3D and the interface was implemented in a non-orthographical, perspective console view that is fully photo-realistic and operational at the same time. The keys move while you play, and every button responds appropriately to your actions. Both multiple- and single-screen operation is possible: the large number of stops can be operated conveniently from a wide choice of interface pages displayable on multiple touchscreens. Alternatively, 4K resolution landscape and FHD portrait graphical interface provided for 16:9 displays in Hauptwerk 4.x.

Availability and shipping

Melbourne Town Hall Pipe Organ Samples is available from 28 February 2018 in download and in retail box (physical) delivery. Retail box editions ship on more conveniently usable USB Flash Drive allowing for smooth and convenient installation as well as backups.

The organ and the town hall

Melbourne Town Hall

Melbourne Town Hall, built in the heart of the City of Melbourne, was designed by architect Joseph Reed and Barnes in neoclassical style, and completed in 1870. The additional front portico was connected to the building in 1887, and the foundation of the administrative annex building was laid on 27 August 1908.

In 1925, the large part of the Town Hall was destroyed in fire, including the main auditorium with the Grand Organ. During reconstruction it was enlarged, but lost some of Reed’s original flourishes.

The Town Hall is topped by Prince Alfred’s Tower, which includes a grand clock, functioning from 31 August 1874.

The Grand Organ

The first pipe organ of Melbourne Town Hall was uncompleted in the time for the official opening of the Town Hall on 1870. Till the opening of the Grand Organ on 1872, a 17-stop organ was borrowed and used instead.

The original Grand Organ was built and installed by Willian Hill and Son of London. This organ contained four manuals and pedal, 66 speaking stops and 4373 pipes. The organ had a major reconstruction in 1906 when a number of new stops were installed.

On 1 February, 1925 the organ and a large part of the Main Hall were destroyed by fire.

The Grand Organ of today’s Town Hall was originaly built by Hill & Son and Norman & Beard of London in 1929. The organ stands at 9.75 metres high. The casework is made of Queensland maple with coin-bronze grilles. The organ has 6024 pipes, the largest being the ‘Tibia Profunda’. The smallest pipe is the top note of the Tierce and is 9.3 mm in length with a diameter of 11.11 mm. The organ is blown by two electric motors. The console has four manuals from top to bottom being: Solo, Swell, Great and Choir. There are still 4 divisions: Orchestral, Bombarde (mostly played on Solo), Fanfare (played on Solo) and Echo. The Orchestral is a floating division and is playable on all manuals. The Echo organ was originally located at the rear of the Main Hall, but has been dismantled for some time.

The Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ was fully refurbished and enlarged in 2001 by Schantz Organ Company of the USA. After the enlargement, the Grand Organ cointains 175 speaking stops, 147 ranks, 9568 pipes, on 5 divisions and 3 sub-divisions. The Echo organ was not restored at this stage, it was left for a future project.

System requirements and recommendations

It is intended (and required) that the Melbourne Town Hall Pipe Organ Samples be operated within Hauptwerk, a virtual pipe organ host software application (purchased separately). The Melbourne Town Hall Pipe Organ Samples work with Hauptwerk 4.2 and later, and a valid license for Hauptwerk is required to load the organ.

System requirements for the Melbourne Town Hall Organ
Platform PC/Mac
Host software Hauptwerk version 4.2 or later

Advanced Edition is recommended, Basic Edition is required

(the Inspirations Edition works with Hauptwerk Free)
CPU i7 or Xeon or better is recommended

Dual-Core or equivalent is required
Sound card ASIO compatible recommended

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

Detailed RAM and polyphony guidelines

Hauptwerk loads all samples in the computer's RAM, with several loading options available according to your computer's specification. For wet sample sets offering built-in long reverberation, most of the RAM usage is due to the release samples. If you have convolution or other reverberation technology available, less RAM and polyphony will allow you to load and play the full organ. If you have more RAM, you can load the full organ with the release samples and enjoy the original sound. 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.
