PAB Pipe Organ Samples

Postby Csaba Huszty » Thu Nov 27, 2008 1:53 am

Dear All!

I am submitting the first demo of PAB Pipe Organ Samples here.

A 92-stop symphonic concert hall pipe organ for Hauptwerk with more than 20,000 samples sampled at 192 kHz entirely.

First I submit some video on the graphics showing bit on how the custom combination action works.

Hello Csaba,

Thank you for the video. It looks like you modeled the console in a 3D program and used that to generate all the images for the virtual console. It is by far the best looking Hauptwerk console I've ever seen. I like how you have rendered a graphic for every position for all the keys and pedals. Very impressive to say the least. I particularly like how the division labels are also divisional clear switches.

I am looking forward to learning more about this organ. The two things that are paramount on my mind are, of course, how the organ sounds and what we can expect to pay for it. If the quality of the samples is up to par with the quality of the virtual console, then I think Hauptwerk users will not need to worry.

As for the price, I went ahead and used adri's price calculations to give myself an educated guess as to what you might possibly charge for this organ. $10/stop would be ~$1,000 and $23/stop would be ~$2,000. Here's hoping we get an amazing sample set in terms of quality and price!

Thank you! Indeed, we completely re-modelled everything. I hope you will like the sound quality, too. What you have seen on the video will be priced at less than $10 per stop and there will be the introductory sales too for a limited time starting next week, so if there is a lot of interest, it will go down a lot, to like $5. Details coming soon, I am back to the recording.

Hi Csaba,

Looks really good, can't wait to get my hands on it! I would just re-iterate though that it would be preferable not to show keyboards on the left/right jambs as it will look odd when placed next to real keyboards and just re-inforces the fact it is a virtual instrument.

Regards,
Chris.

Hi, thank you! The left-right pages without keyboards were created indeed, just as you ordered :) but are not shown yet in this video. They are named as "Left" and "Right" near the "Center". They have controls and indicators instead of the keyboards.

Hi Csaba,

I see the movie but I can't hear anything. Do You know what the problem is?

Specs are great, it looks good, price looks promosing, but now we only have to wait for the most important thing, the sound!

*sigh* still no demos. I'm dying to hear what this sample set sounds like!

I'm more excited about this organ after hearing about its acoustics. I really like the Conference Center organ here in Salt Lake, sister organ to the Tabernacle organ. The acoustics are much more subtle than they are in the Tabernacle since the Conference Center acoustics are intentionally dry. In contrast to many organists, I like how the organ sounds, and I'm hoping this organ will sound similar. CC organ is 130 ranks and this one is 92. Once you strip off some of the Wurlitzer and other odd ball ranks on the CC organ, you have a spec not unlike the PAB organ. I'm particularly excited by all those solo reeds. Anyone who's listened to my recordings knows I have a thing for fff reeds :)

I'm hoping to be able to coax a more musical sound out of it than Olivier Latry & Philippe Lefebvre's YouTube improvisation. I still have nightmares about that one...

All this build up and we still haven't heard a single sample! Any ETA on some demos? Pleeeeease!

Boy you can say that again. What a waste. New Age noodling is what I call it. Much of Phillip Glass, master con artist, falls into the same category.
