Firstly I would like to thank Graham for advising about the typo and providing a new link. Your hard work and dedication to our community has not gone unnoticed. Your knowledge has provided countless hours of enjoyment for a multitude of VPO enthusiasts.
To Panos, I do appreciate the info about Reaper and will download and try it out. As far as the triangle sound in HW3, I wanted (as always) the advanced options such as blower noise and honestly I didn't even realize that there was a version without that sound. I assume you are talking about the basic cersion? I will load that version when next I fire up the programme.
I did download the multi version of GO last night and already have all of the organs you mentioned. My problem has been getting my foot controller to work; it was daunting and intimidating. I've had various people help me with it in the past but when I kept running into a brick wall with it I would get frustrated and walk away from it...for almost a year the last time. But a couple of weeks ago I decided I had the time and inclination to give it a go again and started reading different forums. I found a post from a gent in the UK who described putting together his set up for HW3 using the same foot controller. When I followed his steps - voila! Success was achieved with the toe studs and swell shoe. The crescendo still doesn't act like he describes as he has crescendos general assigned as CC 7 (volume) and the swells general as 27 (user defined). The part I can't seem to understand is what it is defined as? When I start midiox the pedal that should be swells sends a CC 10 (pan) and the other shoe sends CC 7, but the pedals are reversed. So for the time being I have assigned a mod wheel to act as crescendo. Not perfect but workable.
So I will keep you all informed of my progress and look forward to having some fun and making music!
Best wishes to you all.
