The Lakeside Pipe Organ is a Rodgers steel and wooden pipe-electric hybrid organ recorded at the Lakeside Temple Of Practical Christianity in Oakland, California, with organist Don Sears. This large pipe organ produces its sound by driving compressed air through 850 resonant steel pipes and wooden reeds, arranged in 15 ranks. It contains 6 primary stops to span a wide tonal and dynamic range: Wooden flute stops 1 & 2, Steel Pipe stops 3, 4 & 5 and the bass foot pedal board. Solo individual stops, use the stop mixer panel to customize the mix, or smoothly blend between them. The stop mixer panels make it easy to glide from the soft and gentle glow of the wooden reeds to the glorious roar of the steel pipes and growling low end of the bass pedals. There is also a selection of struck bar chime tuned percussion, bellows and blower sfx, sheet music page turns and more. The library includes a close stage position and wide hall position with free control over presence and ambience.
The combination of these 6 different stops at various volumes allows for a dramatically wide range of tones. Sampled release triggers for all notes, as well as additional foot basses, bells/chimes, and session recordings with organ and player sound effects. The UI contains lots of sound-shaping controls like swell, attack, release, offset, vibrato, filter, pitch (coarse & fine), articulation switching, cross-fading and layering.
The Advanced Control window adds additional options like an LFO with shape, target, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in control. Choose from 12 low-pass, high-pass and FX filters, with assignable modulation targets such as velocity, modwheel, expression, key position and step-sequencer table control. The ARP system features a velocity sequencer and controls for arp direction, note timing, swing, randomization and duration. The new key and scale lock system allows for easy melodic composition and live performance. It's all rounded out by the modular FX rack window, with 18 different DSP effect modules that can be assigned in any of 10 available slots, in any order. Including classic phase, flanger, delay, distortion, amp and cab simulators, compressors, EQ, rotator.
