ORGANTEQ
Organteq: physically modelled pipe organs

Organteq is a physically modelled pipe organ for MacOS, Windows and Linux (x86). It includes a standalone version and 64-bit plug-ins for VST, AAX, and AudioUnits hosts.

The organ sound is generated in real time from scratch, reproducing the typical and variable pipe attack transients “chiff” as well as the 3D configuration, where pipes are located in space according to their keyboards. Even the action noises from keys, stops and couplers are modelled. All this makes the instrument livelier than sample based variants, bringing more realistic variability in attack and sustain.

By omitting usage of samples, the file size is just a tiny fraction of that offered by other virtual organs, perfect for use on any modern laptop. Installation is simple and fast.

Organteq features highlight
  • Physically modelled organ
  • Real time sound generation
  • Three five-octave keyboards and a thirty-two note pedal keyboard
  • Ten assignable stops per keyboard
  • Pipe-per-pipe adjustable parameters for each stop
  • Adjustable expression pedal
  • Adjustable crescendo pedal
  • Adjustable keyboard couplers
  • Adjustable combinations ("presets" for stops)
  • Customizable reverb, from dry to wet sound
  • Adjustable diapason and temperament
  • Fine-tuning note-per-note
  • MIDI Learn feature for assigning external MIDI devices
  • MIDI Mapping with keyboard-split feature
  • Works great on any modern laptop
  • Fast loading - less than 15 MB in size

«Never mind the other organs. USE THIS ONE. I was using the demo for while, just to see what it was like. I told myself, "I wish I could use it in Logic." So I bought it, and it is absolutely fabulous.»
