Great Baroque composit of Sonus Paradisi demo sample sets
'I think that I have now very many free demo sample sets. This gives me an idea, if there is some volunteer able to do it for fun, what about to COMBINE all those free demo sample sets of Sonus Paradisi into one Giganteous large sample set. I think many people would be happy. (......) Think that these all together - if someone makes some logical and wise placement of the stops to different manuals (perhaps 4 manuals and a pedal) - should be quite large free playable sample set. What do you think?' - detail of Jiri Zurek's email.
I tried to implement the idea of Jiri Zurek. Its first product is the Sonus Paradisi Great Baroque demo composit Organ. I had to re-tune the organs, and eliminated the disparities resulting from the different reverb and temperament. So I had to re-edit the multi-release files and re-tune some pipe of Smecno organ. The result has been far from being perfect, but I hope the free sample set can be used and you will get a lot of pleasure. And I hope Jiri Zurek do not going to get mad because I meddled with his great work.
The sample sets are available in wave format 48kHz/24bit, stereo, multiple loops and multiple releases (3 levels). Equal, a=440 Hz
The sample sets are wet, the reverberation time is about 2.5-3 seconds. (If the reverb is not enoughor uneven to someone, you will find detailed help on my homepages for the necessary software based reverb. Reverb guide.)
Hauptwerk v4.0 and higher supported for the Organ Definition Files.
4 Keyborads are 54 keys, Pedal is 30 keys.

Do not forget this is only a composite set from demo sample sets of Sonus Paradisi. The original sample sets are much better, which can be found on the website of Sonus Paradisi.
Ps. Jiri Zurek authorized by the sample set although he did not like the idea of manipulating the releases of the existing demo sample sets (because it changes the overall acoustics drastically). He is right about this. I think I overstepped the bounds, although guided me to the goodwill. If something is not good in the sampleset only my fault.
