The aim of the project is to make the concert organ from Litomysl (Grygar, 2001) available for the Hauptwerk software sampler. This modern organ is large enough (4 manuals + pedal, 51 sounding stops) to fit the needs of any organ music style, early Spanish music, French or German romantic music, German baroque, XXth century music or anything else you can imagine. The organ was sampled very accurately on 1:1 basis using professional digital equipment of the 24bit/48kHz resolution. The stereo O.R.T.F. norm was used as the recording technique. Each tone of each stop has been captured several times to assure the best possible results. Long samples up to 9 seconds were taken.
Ambiental recording was employed, mics were placed some 13 m apart from the instrument, roughly one third of the length of the church building away from the instrument, suspended high in the air (in the height of the prospect pipe mouths). This ensures very detailed and present sound while the acoustics of the building are preserved very faithfully.
