Just before Christmas I visited the Wyvern showroom to setup one of their new Sonata organs with Hauptwerk.
Wyvern supply 2 organ ranges. Their standard spec organs are built by Content in Holland and their custom organs are built by Renatus here in the UK using the Phoenix WPx system.
The Wyvern Sonata is a Content-built organ. A couple of things of note. These new instruments have a new tone generation system with per-note samples and excellent voicing capabilities. They also have a Hauptwerk mode, the reason for the visit.
Once the secret menu option to enable Hauptwerk mode was located, the integration task was probably the simplest I have ever encountered. It just worked! I was very impressed.
Watch this space. There will be more exciting developments in this space soon!
