• Welcome to the Pipe Organ Forum! This is a part of the open community Magle International Music Forums focused on pipe organs (also known as "church organs"), organists, organ music and related topics.

    This forum is intended to be a friendly place where technically advanced organists and beginners (or even non-organists) can feel comfortable having discussions and asking questions. We learn by reading and asking questions, and it is hoped that the beginners (or non-organists) will feel free to ask even the simplest questions, and that the more advanced organists will patiently answer these questions. On the other hand, we encourage complex, technical discussions of technique, music, organ-building, etc. The opinions and observations of a diverse group of people from around the world should prove to be interesting and stimulating to all of us.

    As pipe organ discussions can sometimes become lively, it should be pointed out that this is an open forum. Statements made here are the opinion of the poster, and not necessarily that of the forum itself, its administrator, or its moderators.

    In order to post a new topic - or reply to existing ones - you may join and become a member by clicking on Register New User. It's completely free and only requires a working email address (in order to confirm your registration - it will never be given away!). We strive to make this a friendly and informative forum for anyone interested in pipe organs and organ music.

    Many kind regards

New Website for jOrgan


I have created the jORGAN DISCOVERY website to help new users have a good experience of installing and using this fine Virtual Pipe Organ program. It contains a GALLERY page with sound samples to showcase what jOrgan can do. Of course, the quality of what you hear depends on how good your audio system is.

In my opinion, jOrgan is capable of matching the sound quality of the two better-known programs, and excels in the much smaller demands it places on the resources of the computer you are using. It even works very well on the Raspberry Pi. However, it is probably not as easy to get it going, especially for those people less confident about using computers. This website aims to address that.

The web address is http://jorgan.info
