ISW Fredonia Grand Organ


Product details :

The Fredonia Grand Organ places the power and majesty of a full pipe organ at your fingertips with unparalleled depth and range — 39 stops that can be combined for endless possible tones. Featuring one of the biggest sounds you’ve ever used, easily adjusted from a delicate to an almost cosmic scale.

To create the Fredonia Grand Organ, ISW sampled the magnificent Schlicker Pipe Organ at SUNY Fredonia. Every pipe organ has a unique voice, and this one has a particularly powerful sound with incredible versatility.

Capturing the nuance and fullness of a pipe organ is no easy feat, but an instrument as grand as this deserves extra care. They’ve replicated many features of a real organ, including crescendo and swell controls, so that it plays like the real thing. Its 2,469 pipes have been deep-sampled with four mic positions and four registers (Swell, Positive, Pedal, and Great).

They sampled every single stop — a total of 39 — individually to give you full control over the instrument’s sound. Combine any or all of these to customize the tone however you’d like. Additionally, they’ve emulated the behavior of the instrument’s six couplers, so you can add or subtract octaves with the press of a button. And if you’re looking for a brilliant sound right out of the box? They’ve provided an array of powerful presets with different stop combinations and signal chains in our Console FX rack and mixer. From the delicate-voiced rohrflöte to the earth-shaking thunder of the whole instrument in chorus, the Fredonia Grand Organ will take your breath away.
