I have been reading Piano World forums for a while now. There is lots of great discussions about pianos.
Do you also play the organs? Obviously it is less popular then piano, but I hope some of you still do it.
Some time ago I started helping as a voluntary organist in our church and need a practice instrument. I have got couple of digital pianos at home so thought a Virtual Pipe Organ might be a way to go. I have read about GrandOrgue and Hauptwerk, but feel a bit lost in terms of the hardware, like do I need a computer with 16 or 32GB of RAM with the latest/fastest processor and a massive SSD. I live in the UK and wanted to buy a new laptop/MacBook and with specs suggested on some forums it would run into thousands of pounds.
If anyone uses a VPO would you mind sharing your experience.

Have a look at this free taster download opportunity. As a sometime user of Pianoteq (and loving it) I look forward to when I can play some of the world's greatest organs.


You can run any Pianoteq product on a typical desktop or laptop.

If you decide that software organs are not for you then I recommend my Yamaha Tyros 5 which has fabulous organ sounds from jazz, orchestral to full church pipe organs. It will however drain your wallet.

Thanks for the reply. Would Pianoteq have less demands on the hardware than Hauptwerk/GrandOrgue?
