There are now a total of 3482
Hauptwerk tracks (c. 1437 tracks using HW2 or HW3 = c. 95.51 hours, c. 1946 tracks using
HW 1 = c. 121.54 hours). There are c. 1406 unique pieces, so most are realized on at least two
instruments (including alternate or upgraded versions of older instruments), with varying degrees of enhancement
depending on age of track and instrument characteristics.
Now a part of history, owners of Hauptwerk 1 samples were able to gain a little more efficient use of their current
hardware resources by using this controversial but free interface. The wet tracks I made using
St. George's Casavant, Op. 2871 and
A French Harpsichord after Blanchett have been
integrated into Virtually Baroque: 99 tracks, for a total of 8.62 hours of music.
