As a professional organist I must voice my opinion that no virtual organ can compete with a good, well regulated tracker organ. To really develop a good touch one must play the real thing, otherwise it's hard to understand attack/release and to feel how the pallet is opened by the playing finger.

Nevertheless it's impractical for most persons to have a real organ at home and it's in such situations that a virtual organ can be very valuable. Not the least important reason is that, even if it's available at only a fraction of the cost of a real organ, it can sound very convincing indeed.

My hopes are that vpo's and my efforts with them will help more people enjoy the wonderful instrument that the Organ really is.

Screencasts about using GO

I've created a few screencasts showing usage of GrandOrgue and uploaded them to YouTube. The first one covers basic downloading, installing and configuration of GrandOrgue.

The second covers different load options and how they affect memory usage and load speed.

Down below is a follow-up to the GO cache screencast above, and now I'll show how to get lightning fast loadtime of samplesets.

In the next screencast I demonstrate the use of the Panel menu in GO.

Next is a demonstration of some MIDI-configuration pitfalls and how to avoid them.

Here follows a demonstration of some of the voicing features of GrandOrgue

Next screencast shows the use of Scope and Scoped in the panels.

Next comes a screencast showing the use of Full in panels to force storage of divisionals and generals when stops are not displayed on main panel and sampleset producer selected to not store them in combinations. Also velocity selection of keyboard activation and only activate parts of keyboards is shown.

The screencast below explain saving your configuration as well as exporting/importing more combinations if the saved ones won't be enough.

Next up is multi channel audio output configuration!

This is a follow up on the multi channel audio output screencast.

 

The following screencast show the Initial MIDI configuration.
