Post Musical Instruments introduced the PMI Baroque Organ sample library, a
thorough reproduction of a church organ.
The PMI Baroque Organ chromatically captures all 28
single stops of the church organ and provides all available combinations of
the real organ. To achieve this 110 samples for every stop are used. Every
single pipe of the organ has been recorded. Beside these single stops,
several combinations were selected so that all registrations of the original
organ are available to the user.
Traditionally, conventional church organ libraries were popular because of
their large impressive tutti sounds, usually achieved by providing a limited
amount of combinations of many single stops. These libraries lacked the
possibility to combine single stops at random, as in the real church organ.
Also, most church libraries use far less samples for each stop, resulting in
transposed sounds and strange timbre shifts.
The PMI Baroque Organ library offers
all the single stops of a church organ and necessary
combinations. These combinations are designed to achieve every
combination of the church organ that can be assembled without running into
polyphony problems on the host computer. The PMI Baroque Organ also captures the ambience of space. Release
triggered samples add the natural ambience of the church. The library
contains 2.8 Gigabytes of samples and is designed for easy
operation. The library can be played live using several midi keyboards as a
normal church organ or integrated in an existing sequencer environment.
Over 100 audio demos can be found on the PMI
The PMI Baroque Organ is available from authorized PMI dealers, directly
from PMI on-line. The PMI Baroque Organ is availablr noe and carries an MSRP of $145. An introductory offer for $100 runs through
the month April '04.
