The church of St. Walburga (Walburgiskerk) is a large gothic cathedral. The reverb time is enormous, ca. 8 seconds long. We spotted even up to 9 seconds on some tones. The church houses three pipe organs. The most important of them is the historical instrument of Hans Henrich Bader (died ca. 1680). The organ was constructed between 1637-1643 and it was placed on the northern side of the church at that time. First, Bader was commissioned to add a Rugwerk to an existing older organ, later he added a new Hoofdwerk and a Pedal. The independent Pedal was a distinctive and innovative feature of the Westphalian organbuilding tradition Bader represented, since Dutch organs of the first half of 17th century lacked the Pedal division. 

Later, in 1813-1815, the organ was substantially rebuilt, enlarged and  moved to the organ loft by J. W. Timpe. He added the third manual - the Bovenwerk. In 1906, the organ was moved again by G. Spit and J. C. Sanders to the western wall of the church. Also, the reeds were renewed at that time. The organ was damaged by fire in 1948. 

A comprehensive restoration of the organ took place between 1993 and 1996 by Orgelmakerij Reil to the state of 1815 with some optimizations. The Bader concept is still clearly present in the Hoofdwerk, Rugwerk and the Pedal. New baroque-type reeds were supplied. The Bovenwerk was brought back to the shape of Timpe.

The wind is supplied by 5 wedge bellows, four of which date back to 1643. The organ is tuned in 1/6 comma meantone.

The organ belongs to the most notable organs of Netherlands and it is the finest surviving example of a Bader organ.

Special thanks to the Bader organ association for their warm welcome and assistance during our recording sessions.

Extra informatie


The samples are offered in 48kHz/24bit resolution. The multiple releases have three levels: short, mid and long. Hauptwerk v4.2 and higher supported. The surround variant of the sample set is encrypted, which means that it can be used with Hauptwerk Basic or Hauptwerk Advanced versions exclusively. Hauptwerk Advanced version is strongly recommended, the Basic version is not suitable to run the Surround variant of the sample set (memory limitations, audio channels limitations). There is no use of the sample set possible in any other software.

The reverb time is ca. 8 seconds.

Keyboards, pedalboard

The original compass of the keyboards is 54 keysThe original compass of the pedal division is 27 keys (extended to 30 keys).


All ranks were recorded with and without tremulants for the most convincing tremulant behavior. The third manual ranks were recorded with the general tremulant and also with the separate 3. manual tremulant (two different tremulant samples for each tone). However, loading tremmed ranks consumes large amount of RAM. It is possible to select to use the artificial tremulant instead to save RAM (the switch is located on the mixer tab).


HDD space occupied 6-channel surround: 71 GB.

RAM consumption: 6-channel surround

  • 16-bit, other settings default:    31.3 GB

  • 20-bit, other settings default:    53.8 GB (recommended)

  • 24-bit, other settings default:    60.3 GB

Suggestion for computers with 32 GB RAM: load all ranks, but truncate releases of the direct ranks (only of the direct ranks) resulting in 25.8 GB.

Surround format

The sample set is offered in a surround variant (6 channels). In addition to the usual 4-channel surround, there are two more alternative front channels. In total, there are 4 front audio channels and 2 rear channels. The two pairs of the front ranks feature two different recording positions: direct (near to the pipes) and diffuse (distant from the instrument). These two pairs of the front ranks can either be mixed together freely to achieve any listening position between the two extremes, or used separately - depending on the prefererences of the user. A dedicated "mixing desk" is available in Hauptwerk to mix the sound to the desired level.
