      Normal Hauptwerk installation (described in the HW manual) is all that is necessary if stop control is by mouse or touchscreen. However, an extra installation step is required to allow MIDI control of the virtual stops from an organ console with real stop-knobs or stop-tabs. It will also be necessary if using an external MIDI sequencer to control the organ.                                                                        A brief guide on doing this can be downloaded hereSpecial thanks to Adrian Wheal, who made this the manual.
