Augustine's       Virtual Organs

 Original & Composit sample sets

Venetian Baroque Organ replica from Farkasret (Budapest)


Sample quality

The sample sets are available in wave format 48kHz/24bit, stereo, multiple loops (1-8) and multiple releases (2 levels). 

Equal, a=440 Hz (and Vallotti temperament)

The sample sets are made in several forms.          

1. Stereo versions two channels 

    ( a. near, b. far native, c. far with arteficial reverb)

2. Surround versions (3 pairs of stereo recording: close (near); at distance (far) and in the background (rear).

   (a.  native form b. with arteficial reverb form)

In the surround version you can adjust the perspective by setting the volume of the near, far and rear recordings. (Suitable HW loading and channel settings can be used to give near or far stereo modes or 4 channel surround mode too).   

The acoustics of the tiny church are extremely dry. I made an artificial reverb for HW4 users, and for HW5 users I recommend using the native version with the added 1.5 or 3.8 s convolution reverb.
