Immanuel Presbyterian is one of the great churches on Wilshire Boulevard in downtown Los Angeles, California. The main church seats over 2000 people. There are three organs on the campus. A 1929 EM Skinner, a 1956 Schlicker (the first three manual Schlicker to be installed in Southern California), and a 2 manual 1977 Hradetzky.


The EM Skinner is my new favourite instrument, the first to displace my previous favourite(s), and that's saying a lot (at least for me).

I do add a bit of reverb and have done quite a bit of voicing to balance things to my taste, but there is so much to explore. As has been stated elsewhere, an embarrassment of riches.

Really enjoying it!

Lawrence

PS - I have no opinion to offer about the other two instruments on the campus, since I'm stuck on the playing the EM Skinner . . . they will have to wait for another day :-)

What are you asking/stating?
The organ became available to subscribers to the newsletter on Easter Sunday.

The requirements show 25 GB memory for 24 bit compressed, all releases, single loops. Does anybody have the memory used for 24 bit compressed, all releases, *all* loops? Thanks.

Don't have an exact figure handy, but it's under 30gB
