Want to Sell: 4-manual Hauptwerk Virtual Pipe Organ ReadyToPlay!

Category: Electronic Organs and Parts

4-Manual Hauptwerk-Based, Custom-Built Virtual Pipe Organ For Sale. PICKUP ONLY (no shipping).

Selling a complete, fully up-and-running Hauptwerk-based virtual pipe organ. This is a custom-built, large instrument, so it's hard to describe in just a few words. The photos that are also available will help describe this instrument.

It is located in Raleigh, NC and is currently fully up-and-running, so that it can be played by anyone interested in checking it out. Just arrange a time to come by; call Jim Laing at 919-264-5968, or email me at Since this is a very custom instrument, the best situation would be a buyer who could come see and play it, see that it all functions, learn how it is all put together, then (with my help) dismantle it and take it away to re-assemble at their home. We do not want to attempt to "ship" it!

This is a 4-manual, 8 channel (of audio) virtual pipe organ based around the Hauptwerk software. It includes quite a few "sample sets" (sets of stops), details of those are listed later. It comes with a bench and 32-note AGO pedalboard. The audio passes through a hum eliminator, then through 8 channels of Lexicon reverb, then through 8 channels of amplification, then to the 8 included speakers.

We have several great Theatre Pipe Organ sample sets, as well as several very nice-sounding classical pipe organ sample sets. Also included more as "fun toys" are a Harpsichord and Caliope, each available as a separate little "instrument" (separate from the pipe organs).

Included would be all the "programming" that we have done to set up the audio and MIDI to make all this hardware work seamlessly together. We also went through a lot of work to divide up the "ranks" to various speakers, within the Hauptwerk system, to create a great ensemble sound.

As an option (that we may elect to remove from the configuration if buyers not interested) is an audio mixer and large BagEnd subwoofer.

Another option, if desired, is a custom-built, carpeted platform with "rope lights" underneath, and large casters, to put the organ on.

The organ is based on a MacPro "tower" style computer with 32GB of RAM. It includes two 19" touchscreens and appropriate adapters for them. Also included is a custom-made "mini rack" to hold the amps, reverbs, and hum eliminators. Also included is most of the cabling (minus the speaker cables, which are in the walls so can't come out).
