Organteq is a physically modelled pipe organ which you can install on your computer (PC/Mac). It can be used both in standalone mode and as a 64-bit instrument plug-in in VST and AudioUnits hosts.
By utilizing the physical model of Modartt's award-winning virtual instrument Pianoteq, the playability and complex behaviours of real acoustic instruments are simulated. 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.
The 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.
Organteq offers over a thousand pipes, inspired from Cavaillé-Coll's organs, assigned to three manual keyboards with a five-octave range, and a pedal keyboard with thirty-two notes. Each keyboard can be assigned to a selection of stops with adjustable parameters.
By being physically modelled, Organteq offers several advantages over sample based variants:
- It installs and loads quickly on any modern laptop
- It hardly takes up any space at all as the file size is just 15 MB (megabytes)
- It feels like playing a real organ, with superior playability
- It is vivid, bringing more realistic variability in attack and sustain
- With its MIDI learn feature and convenient MIDI mapping, Organteq provides quick and easy connection with your MIDI compatible keyboard and other devices.
An organ is a complex instrument by itself. We made special efforts to make the interface easy to use by non-organist musicians.
The reverb module offers parameters to vary the ambience, from a pure anechoic dry sound to a giant space wet sound.
Organteq is available for macOS (10.7 or later), Windows (7 or later) and Linux (x86), both as a standalone instrument and as a 64-bit plug-in for VST and AudioUnits hosts.
