    Welcome to my youtube channel!

    I hope this kind of post is not considered as spam.

    Here is my youtube channel, which I invite you to explore:

    voixdelabime's channel

    To tell the truth there is not much to see but these compositions make part of this year's exams, intermediate and final. There is one missing but I am afraid it will be after this summer.

    The compression settings are not always the same and I found recently a better balance, so the videos from this month sound somewhat better. They look also better thanks to the spot light I have used to illuminate the pedals. As a rule I play the pedals blindly looking at the score, so I completely ignored the pedals lighting aspect which led to a visual disaster in the older videos. Sorry about that!

    Please take into account that I am just a 6th year organ student with a life (professional and family obligations) and without previous pianistic background, so be nice on me. I know what my problems are (I have a professor) but your opinion and critic are also welcome.

    Finally, the videos have been shot using the video mode of an old digital camera, so the video quality is rather poor. But I hope you will find some enjoyment at least.

    Enjoyed listening to your playing. What brand of organ..Kinda sounds like a viscount. I think you are doing fine for 6 yrs study and no piano background.....good luck with exams and your future study which by the way is life long I have discovered.

    Thanks guys, your comments are encouraging.

    Nope. But even if you find the brand name, it is a little bit tricky to figure out the exact model based on the sound, the part of the stop disposition that is exposed and the temperament choices. Another guess maybe?

    By the way some new videos are awaiting to be watched, accompanied by comments and detailed registration each time. This is a direct link to the page with the videos.

    Some stops in the new registrations may help you to find which organ precisely is this but the new temperament I use for Pachelbel's Fantasia is going to blur the view.

    What is this? No more guesses about the organ brand and model?

    I assume then that you surrender.

    For those that are interested or just curious, this is the organ I am playing in the videos and this is the extension which is connected to it. It enhances much the capabilities of the organ.

    My setup is fairly low-end although it comes with very extended voicing functions and as much stops as it gets for a two manual organ; I wish I had more time to "play" with voicing, or spare money to invest in an external sound system. But you see now why I said that it is somewhat tricky to guess the exact configuration.

    I am not familiar with this brand at all. Interesting site but no sound samples. That extension unit you have really adds to your main instrument by the sound of the discription. I do like the sound files they used. Hang in there and keep up the good work.

    wljmrbill: Thank you for the kind words and the encouragement.

    About this organ brand I also have not other experience than the organ I am playing and the CD they sent me. Their CD has sound samples and organ works played on their middle and high end models. Parts of it can be found in the German site. Just make sure to click everything because the samples of the middle model are accessible through the link above the CD image. They say nothing about the recording conditions (sequencer or natural reverb through external sound system in a room - and they have a proprietary one mimicking the sound radiation of organ pipes) but it sounds pretty much like the real thing on CD.

    Mine is of course really low end, from a hardware and sound sample resolution point of view, but it is interesting that they offer the full spectrum of voicing and finishing functions they offer in the highest end! It is a real labyrinth of combinations that I have yet to fully explore. And there is still the possibility to add an external sound system.

    Anyway, a real pipe organ correctly installed in a big edifice has no substitute, but the digital ones we found today have certainly their own merits.

    Some new videos are up for you to watch in my channel (Mendelssohn, Bach, Dupré). Starting on December 29, 2012, I use an external recorder to capture the sound of the organ. For my previous recordings I used the built-in sequencer of the organ.
