We are pleased to present you the bank of a small house organ, 250 pipes, 5 real stops on two manuals (plus a coupled keyboard), built in 1988. It comes in soundfont and Kontakt 2 versions. If you are a user of Hauptwerk format, go to Soni Musicae / Hauptwerk.
At first, we did not want to distribute it, because this is not an extraordinary organ, and it was impossible to avoid a big noise of organ-blower during the recording : as it is a house organ, it stood in a flat, and the microphones could not stand far from it. But, finally, after some numerical treatments, we think that the result is not so bad, and we give it to you as close as possible to the real thing, without changing many of its defaults...
There is no natural reverb in the rather small room where it stood, and the sound is dry and a bit agressive, specially in the high notes, because it is the sound of the original instrument, and it is also the result of the numerical treatments that remove the noise of the organ-blower.
The organ is tuned to A 440 Hz and to equal temperament.
To make this organ easy to use, this sf2 soundbank comes with many presets that respect the usual relevant combinations of the original instrument. You will find :
