Lakeside Pipe Organ is a classic church pipe organ library for Kontakt. The library was recorded at the Lakeside Temple of Practical Christianity (Oakland, CA), with master organist Don Sears. We captured it a variety of different stop settings and combinations, allowing you to control the timbre of the organ.
There are five different settings ranging from PP to FF. The majority of this library focuses on the classic steel pipes only, although we also opened up some of the organ's vintage electric stops for a little extra low-end reinforcement on our high 5th setting. All settings recorded at two microphone positions (close/far), so user have ultimately flexibility between 10 different organ settings. The Lakeside Pipe Organ was recorded both close and far mic positions, with custom blending controls.
The organ is made from over 850 different pipes arrayed in 15 ranks. The pipes are mostly steel and wood, which gives a wonderful bright, airy sound to the organ. We recorded each individual note on the organ, since each pipe has a unique character. In addition we recorded 5 different core settings on the organ, which can be compared to PP, P, MP, MF, FF) in terms of dynamic range. All settings were recorded with 2 microphone settings (close and far) for maximum user flexibility.
The full range of the pipes covers 61 keys on the console, starting at C2. We've stretched the lowest note down to C-2, in order to allow deeper notes than the physical pipes allow for this organ. The included Convolution Reverb effect features 115 select custom impulse responses recorded from some of our favorite locations. The library also includes a number of custom sound-designed organ FX presets.
