Ben Trenchard discusses and demonstrates Hauptwerk, the amazing pipe-organ software used in the recent re-pitching

Former Peterborough Cathedral chorister, Ben Trenchard, will introduce Hauptwerk, the leading virtual pipe organ software. Permission was granted to undertake the re-pitch of the Cathedral organ only on condition that a recording was made of every single note at its original pitch.

Ben will show how it is possible, using this recording and Hauptwerk software, to create a virtual instrument on which to play ‘Peterborough Cathedral organ’ at its original pitch.
