    Hello Martin,

    I am currently running grandorgue_0.3.1.2138-184.1_amd64-1604, the version for non-SS3 PC's, on Ubuntu 16.04 and wanted to upgrade to the above version.
    I see that now i must first install grandorgue-resources followed by the file grandorgue_0.3.1.2171-138.1_amd64.deb.

    When installing the grandorgue-resources file i get an error as follows:

    (Reading database ... 1680104 files and directories currently installed.)
    Preparing to unpack .../grandorgue-resources_0.3.1.2171-138.1_all.deb ...
    Unpacking grandorgue-resources ( ...
    dpkg: error processing archive /home/erik/Downloads/grandorgue-resources_0.3.1.2171-138.1_all.deb (--install):
    trying to overwrite '/usr/share/locale/sv/LC_MESSAGES/', which is also in package grandorgue
    dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe)

    Renaming the file did not solve the problem.

    What can i do to solve this problem?

    Thanks in advance for your answer.

    Da hast Du natürlich auch wieder Recht. Von wann stammt denn diese Version 0.1 ?

    In meinem persönlichen Archiv habe ich erst GrandOrgue Versionen ab 0.2 abgelegt mit Datum von 2009. Irgendwann zuvor gab es mal MyOrgan und den Übergang zu GO muss ich wohl verschlafen haben weil ich damals mehr mit Hauptwerk beschäftigt war.

    Vieleicht das Übergang vor MyOrgan zu GrandOrgue?

    Wenn Erik De Schrijver bereits involviert ist, kommt dann auch noch ein passendes ODF? Ich muss nicht das Rad doppelt erfinden ;)

    Is dauerte ein bisschen, aber sehen Sie mahl in English-language Forum.


    Using the program ODF-Builder, i was able to make an ODF for the Esmuc sample set, made available by Pere Casacota on his website, that mimics the HW1 version.
    More specifically, the Positiv has split keyboard at C/C# and only the Oboe is under expression.

    To obtain this result, a few tricks had to be used.

    Because the ODF-Builder program currently does not seem to have a native split keyboard function, i used 2 keyboards, one visible and the other hidden, and made for the 4 stops on the Positiv separate Left- and Right- Stops.
    To do that, in the Left Stops all samples above note 060-C are replaced by silence, and conversely for the Right Stops all notes from 060-C and below are replaced by silence. This seems nessecary because the ODF-Builder program seems not fit to put 2 "half-keyboards" graphically alongside each-other so that it appears to be a single keyboard. Therefore for Left and Right stops a keyboard of 56 keys must be used and thus GO wants 56 consecutive notes for each stop.
    A separate division is made for the Oboe to be able to have this as the only stop under expression. Here also a Left and Right Stop is used and the corresponding keyboards are hidden.
    The trick is to assign the same midi channel to the Positiv keyboard and the ones for the Oboe.
    Because you cannot right-click on a hidden keyboard configuration is done using in GO Audio/Midi and then Midi Objects to set the required midi channel.

    Provided Pere makes the "split-keyboard" samples available, the ODF can be downloaded from this attachment.

    Enjoy and all the best.


    I have checked the characteristics of the .wav files used in the Dluga Kostljena-organ.
    This is the result:
    Formaat : PCM
    Formaatinstellingen, Endianness : Little
    Formaatinstellingen, Sign : Signed
    Codec-ID : 1
    Duur : 12s 663ms
    Bitrate-modus : Constant
    Bitrate : 2 304 Kbps
    Kanaal(en) : 2 kanalen
    Samplerate : 48,0 KHz
    BitDepth/String : 24 bits
    Stroomgrootte : 3,48 MiB (100%)

    If you set the sample rate to 96 kHz while the samples are at 48kHz, you are expecting your sound card to resample each sample. I don't think that this will work.

    To check that your sound card supports 96 kHz, you will need an organ disposition with samples at 96 kHz.
    You can find several on the following website:
    Note that these dispositions have only a few notes per octave sampled; the missing ones are extrapolated from the real samples.

    As to what parameters the control program of your sound card allows to set, i cannot advise because i don't have the same sound card. If the manual does not clarify your question, perhaps an email to the Focusrite support team can.

    All the best.

    I do not have the Saffire 6 USB soundcard; i have an older model Focusrite Saffire using firewire.
    With the driver (for Windows) comes the Saffire Control program.
    This program allows to change the sample rate of the sound card.
    Perhaps you have a similar control program and could try to set the sample rate to the value of the samples you use in GO.

    Another possibility could be a conflict between the driver of your Saffire 6 USB and the chipset used in your PC.
    See…-devices-on-non-root-hubs for some info about this in the Focusrite knowledge base.

    Maybe all of the above is not relevant to your problem, in that case just neglect is.

    All the best.


    Which organ disposition do you use?

    As an alternative, you can use the GO build-in reverb; it allows you to use the impulse respons file you want.

    Is it possible to use Reaper in combination with Grandorgue? If so, can someone explain how to set it up? I use Reaper mainly for EQ and convolution reverb

    If you have an ASIO driver for your sound card, and have Reaper installed, in GO under Audio/Midi - Audio and Midi settings - Audio Output - Audio Output - Add you can select ASIO: Rearoute as audio ouput channel.
    In Reaper, under View tick the Routing Matrix to make it visible and in this matrix select Rearoute channels on the input side.

    This should connect the audio output of GO to Reaper.

    All the best.


    Sorry, my knowledge of German is insufficient to answer in this language.

    In februari 2013 i downloaded a very basic version of Velesovo for GO :

    Made with Organ Definition File Creator (c) 2013 by Wolfgang Schneider,

    I cannot find a trace of the author nor of his conversion program.
    Unfortunately this website seems no longer to show anything but the home page.

    At the time his program was not yet finished and the resulting conversion therefore incomplete.
    The stops are there and working, but no swell pedal, couplers or other playing aids are available.

    I cleaned the ODF so that when loading in the latest GO version (1309) no error messages pop up.

    Maybe the attached file is a starting point for somebody.

    All the best.


    I agree with Michael that using the wet version of the Velesovo set in GO with reverb set to max, but even with reduced reverb length does not sound very realistic. In Hauptwerk in contrast i like it a lot.
