Hi Jean-Paul,

This looks pretty good! We've just moved houses so finances are stretched tight, but I'll have to see if we can stretch the budget a bit more! Off to listen to the demos again ;-)

Dear graham

Thanks for your comments.
I have worked hours and hours for this organ with my friend Alfred. Today, for the first time , i have had the opportunity to play it for pleasure only and not to check pipes like previous weeks. It is really a fantastic organ; but be carefull, it is for Myorgan, not hauptwerk-1. The HWK version will be available later.

I would have been happy to give you this organ, but I cannot, for technical reasons and also because it is the only way for me to earn some money, as nobody wants to give job to a man with Parkinson disease.

Hi Jean-Paul,
I would be interested to know what methods were used to record and process the samples. What Noise Reduction software was used? Looping? Tuning? All of these things are interesting as I want to sample the Pipe Organ at Church for home practice use. The Organs sounds wonderful!

That organ is the same size as the one at my church which is a Wicks

Anyone know which organ they used for the photographs? This hardly looks like what you would find at St. Sulpice.

I've bought the set and am downloading now. Is there any difference between the Pedal Stops of Organ 1 and Organ 2? There seems to be a slight size difference in the links..

Is there any difference between the Pedal Stops of Organ 1 and Organ 2? In the case of Pd-Tuba16.7z in Set 1, there are three extra files, including PipeTune.exe. In all cases the wav files in one set are exactly the same length as those in the other so I presume that the difference is in the compression method chosen by the user (or perhaps the program) when the files were created.
I bought the set a few days ago and am enjoying playing around with it.

Thanks Pete, have finished the downloads without the doubleing of the pedal ranks and succesfully run all three organs :-) Now for the continued fun of playing!

Hello friends

I am happy you enjoy this organ.
In fact the pedals stops are the same for both organs. I have split the big organ (number 3) into 2 smallest organs and give both all the pedal stops.
If you purchase organs 1 and 2 and place all the folders in the same directory you get organ n°3.
Notice also that mix IV and octave2 of organ 1 is borrowed to organ 2, so please keep only once these folders in your directory.

Now, there is a gift for those who have purchases organs 1 & 2. It is called organ 4. it comes with 20 general combinations and a trumpet from great has been added to pedals.

Downloaded the two Kitchener-Packages a few days ago and enjoying them every day!

Unfortunately, however, they take an awfully long time to load and about 2/3 through the load, I get a message from 'MyOrgan', saying that memory is scarce and do I whish to continue to load. Are 2GB RAM not enough???
Apart from that it works GREAT!

I am using 'MyOrgan' in connection with my rather old JOHANNUS Opus1200 (year 1990) - 2 Manuals, full Pedal, MIDI-Interface - and an AMD-Athlone 1.7GHz with 2GB RAM PC with onboard sound plus Steinerg-EDIROL UM1 USB-MIDI-Adapter.......

The 'jOrgan' set works quite well, too, but the FluidSynth Sound is too bright - OK for solo voices but rather tiring and nerving with 'plenum' - my neighbours hate it! :-))) .

Keep up the good work, I'll be watching out for more!

Hi Chris
2Gb is enough, I have only 2 GB and I use Kitchener 4C or Moller 370 with Harmony-Assistant at the same time.
May be you have too much other softwares or services running.
The kitchener organs need only 1 GB
Try the following : go in MyOrgan settings and check "loseless compression". In this case you need only 800 MB.


You said :"
Keep up the good work, I'll be watching out for more!"
My reply : try Moller 370. Many pipes are the same but the sound is really different. Less breath noise and hi frequency softer.

This 3 manuals organ uses the sampled pipes of the Kitchener organs 1 & 2 and the free extension (http://www.lulu.com/content/6657149).
So, it is free if you are a kitchener organs owner.

What is this 'jOrgan' set?
(I certainly know what jOrgan is).
