Title: Softvér Hauptwerk – súčasnosť a budúcnosť virtuálneho organa?
Author: Erik Sloboda

Abstract: Hauptwerk Software – The Presence and the Future of Virtual Organ?
Hauptwerk software in conjunction with a console is used for performance and recording of organ music with the help of organ samples. It has several predecessors: telharmonium, electronic organ, Hammond organ, Moog synthesizer, digital organ, sampler and sample player. The software provides a simple and well arranged user interface. It includes general functions for customizing the user interface, many options for sound setting, individual adjustment of samples and recording functions. It is used mainly by private users for practice and occasional concerts. To a lesser extent it is employed in schools, mainly for teaching organ music performance. It has the least use in churches, where it is utilized during services as an alternative to the pipe organ. We also see its importance in the preservation and active usage of the sounds of numerous rare historical organs.
