...but only time will tell if Organteq is capable of this level of perfection /..and if our computers will be able to handle it/, for first listen and in its current state it still doesn't sound very convincing to me...but the same was true for Pianoteq 1 :shrug:
This is sort of my point. It is impressive, but a properly sampled instrument in Hauptwerk still sounds more authentic to my ears than Organteq. The amount of processing power to model an organ properly is substantial. Right now, Organteq is in the "uncanny valley" so to speak, and the amount of effort to eek out that last 10% of realism is massive.

I agree with teilo, Organteq sounds a bit sterile and tame compared to a good sampled instrument.

I'm also quite certain that Modartt will go the distance to get it right as they have done with Pianoteq, my piano of choice!

In the meantime I feel, like several others here, that Organteq is overpriced.

That last 1-10% requires familiarity with the original hardware, lots of testing (of the software) under various conditions and constructive criticism. Which gives the devs what they need to fine tune it.

There's a number of great Hammond plugins out there. Organteq is about pipe organs, not tonewheel organs - and it's just fine that way.

what do you know if it's not about tonewheels? are you a part of Modartt team?

no, you're not. so don't talk out of your ass. I've spoken to them about Hammonds, they said they will look into it.

whether it's gonna be branded Organteq or Hammondteq, it's small details I don't care about.

I like you, EvilDragon. you never change. years go by, but you're still the same pain in the ass you've ever been. well, at least, you're consistent at something.

I beta tested Organteq, so you can consider me as an extended member of Modartt, along with all other beta testers. The physical model in it is intended for pipe organs, not tonewheel organs. That's all. Even the promo video mentions the physics involved. So no, not talking out of my ass.

I don't think I'm being a pain in the ass at all. All I'm using is facts. But you seem butthurt for no real reason.
