NAMM 2008Garritan announces Virtual Pipe Organs

Garritan

Garritan introduced a Virtual Pipe Organs collection at the NAMM show.

Found in churches, concert halls, and theaters, the majestic sight and sound of the concert pipe organ inspires and enthralls. Garritan's new Virtual Pipe Organs collection accurately captures the grandeur of a variety of different historic and contemporary pipe organs: a Small (Early) Baroque Organ (circa 1740); a Late Baroque organ ("Bach"- circa 1748); a Gothic organ; a Renaissance organ (one of Europe's oldest circa 1587); a Romantic organ (circa late 1800's); and two Modern Organs - seven different pipe organs in all.

Powered by the new ARIA Player developed in collaboration with Plogue, the Garritan Virtual Pipe Organs collection runs on these platforms: MAC OS X 10.4 and higher (PPC32, PPC64, Intel32 and Intel64) and Windows XP and Vista (both 32 and 64 bits) and Linux coming soon. Standalone, Plug-in (VST 2.4 -VST 3.0 -Audio Units -RTAS), and supported notation programs.

Advanced programming makes this a truly "playable" and unique organ library. Among the many features are: a variety of stops for each organ with the ability to combine and mix stops, swellbox, crescendo and tremolo effects; adjustable mechanical noises; adjustable velocity curves; adjustable polyphony; a variety of historical tunings/temperaments and Scala file import; MIDI playback and record in standalone; 3-band EQ; and Graceful Copy Protection (no dongles or challenge response).

"The largest and grandest of all instruments can now be played virtually from one's computer" said Gary Garritan. "This new pipe organs library will be a welcome addition for worship services, education, film music, and to play organ works by the great composers."

Pricing & Availability: $199 - Expected Release Spring 2008.
