I am new to GO - I was a HW user since wow, early 2000's. I finally got my console created and working and wouldn't you know it...my HW security key died just weeks before the new version of HW-V. I know that they are busy with the changes. I have attempted to contact them since the issue popped-up. But no response including in the forum.
I no longer can afford to upgrade at any level and my internet connection has blown wind for more than 10 years. So I have heard a long time ago about Grand Orgue. Thought that I would have to give it a try. I installed the files and I am impressed with the demo organ anyway, plus I had Piotr Grabowski's St. John Cantius in Cracow as a HW sample-set. I have many, many sample-sets and could just kick myself because it just splurged on the Audioangelorum's Peterborough set. I did not have my console up and running at the time and just listening to hunting and pecking on my office computer - I was genuinely impressed, but alas, I can no longer load that particular set because it relies on the security key.
I have been very interested in creating sample sets from before I heard HW for the first time. I knew it was possible and I had access to a complete gem...an extant Henry Erben 3 manual pre-restoration in Old St. Patrick's Cathedral in NYC. I have recording equipment and good interfaces. I had met Mr. Erben's great-great niece who was involved in the restoration of the instrument but had no time to record and it was in bad shape originally with many leaks and missing trackers etc.
I have since moved back to the Midwest USA and since I am now out on a long-term disability - I have time.
I was able to create several Hauptwerk dispositions with original material including very good artwork - nothing that I would release to the general public though. Is there a guide for creating a sample-set in Grand Orgue? I have used Cool-Edit PRO waaaay before Adobe bought it for Audition and several looping programs.
I have not been able to locate anything regarding GO Set Creation.
