NOW AVAILABLE from Impact Soundworks!

Fredonia Grand Organ places the power and majesty of a full pipe organ at your fingertips with unparalleled depth and range. Its four divisions and 39 individually-sampled stops can be combined to create endless possible tones from delicate and ethereal to huge on a cosmic scale.

Even organ beginners will find the instrument easy to play with inspiring snapshots and a one-click randomizer feature to instantly get started with unique tones.

For those looking for deep control, our virtual instrument faithfully reproduces every aspect of the real thing including couplers, tremulants, swell, and crescendo controls. Every division can be played on a separate MIDI channel too!

I am surprised nobody has mentioned anything about this one yet. I listened to the demos and it really sounds great. :)

If you like church organs: buy it. It's that simple. Both sound and interface are winners. Finally an organ that lets you control individual stops through MIDI or automation (as compared to e.g. the Garritan organs -- nice sound, unusable interface). Anything from whisper quiet to thunderous big, good MIDI control, great sounding reverb, a great (and unique?) crescendo function, lack of couplers easily solved by assigning different manuals to the same MIDI channel. I've had the Garritan organs for years now, but they never got me into the proper "organ playing mood". This one does, from the first minute I launched it. I only wish I had a proper 2+ octaves MIDI pedalboard :D

Except for being cheaper, how does it compare to the Rieger Organ from VSL?

If anyone has tested them both, of course :)

Thanks for the kind words! We're looking into adding those couplers for 1.1 :)
