Requiem

An intricately sampled pipe organ from a local church. Features nine different adjustable stops.

The story

In the summer of 2018, I spent the day at my local church sampling the Pipe Organ. With hundreds of audio files to edit, I didn’t have the time or energy to make the instrument into viable commercial product. However, with the help and encouragement from the Pianobook community, I found the drive over December to make this Organ a reality.

The sample pack is a condensed version of the original recordings, but still includes 338 audio files (0.94GB). Each of the nine organ stops have been recorded individually and have their own assigned fader. This means that instead of just having a stop ‘on or off’, you can fade between each of the nine stops, to create your own unique balance.

Thanks to Aaron Newberry and Quetzal Marchiori for noise reduction. Additional thanks to Dave Hilowitz for his valuable advice.

  • Warm, rigid, authentic, perfect organ sound.

    Soooo beautiful!!! And GUI is very beautiful too. I really like the sound, authentic, rigid atmosphere. Very deep and warm sound, such a professional library. I will be using this very soon in my next composition!

  • Amazing and versatile organ

    I think this is my favorite organ sound that I have found, definitely getting some Interstellar vibes when I write with this. I can only imagine the amount of work that went into the recording and editing of this instrument, thank you so much. A neat feature aside from the excellent pipe organ is the Pad preset. I think the work very well hand in hand with each other, but if you are not looking for an obvious organ sound, the pad from it is amazingly delicate and ambient. I'll use both of these a lot in the future, but even the pad is so usable in a huge range of projects.

  • A Truly Wonderful Instrument

    This is one of the truly great Pianobook instruments, transporting, possibly spiritual, tones with a deep, affecting resonance. Its uses span meditational elevation to gothic dread. From Tim Heckeresque death ambience to Phillip Glasslike soundscapes, load this baby up and let yourself go. Immense! Thank you Angus.

  • Ambient Pipe Organ

    Interstellar Vibes??? This is seriously awesome and really gives me interstellar vibes. Its a full gb download size which usually means deeper sampling so thats always good news. With the reverb added this has such a cinematic outerspace quality thats really cool. The sound is mellow and full but still has some nice high end information without being bright at all. You can get a more traditional organ sound with the reverb turned down. You also get different mic positions as well as different patches with different tones. Whats not to love about this?
