    My New VPO Project...

    I just purchased this console to replace the two-manual Moller that received minor flood damage. As far as I can tell, this console was made in 1953 by the American Organ Company and upgraded in the mid-'90s with Peterson components. Since it has MIDI, it should not be a problem converting it to VPO. The hard work will be identifying an appropriate sample set. Most of the stops are not labeled. So I practically have a blank slate from which to work. Your suggestions for filling in the blanks are most welcome.

    That's a smart looking console, for sure.

    That beautiful console deserves a great 3 keyboards virtual organ you can choose among many. HavenĀ“t you taken a look at:

    Love the "Gigout" ... and that organ in general. Hard to believe it was way back 6+ years ago being there. Still very fond memories of playing that instrument, even if the lady didn't appreciate the music, I'm sure that the other people wandering in and out did enjoy hearing the organ.

    I used to help Sean the Organist as a 'page turner' some 15 years ago and the Gift shop women were moaning about it then:-)
