Organteq is a physically modelled pipe organ, the sound is computed in real-time and is adapted according to how you play
Organteq is a physically modelled pipe organ which you can install on your computer (PC/Mac).
You can use any MIDI compatible keyboard or digital piano to play it, although a MIDI organ console and pedal board would make the experience more authentic.
Being physically modelled, the sound is computed in real-time and is adapted according to how you play. That way, it responds like a real organ. Moreover, the installation file size is just 30MB. You can compare this with regular sampled virtual organs which may require up to 64GB. This makes Organteq much faster to load and does not require any specific hard drive for the installation.
On top of this, you have access to physical parameters which make it possible to tweak the sound of the pipes in unique ways, including reverb effects. A physically modelled organ is to be preferred when playing note repetitions. On a real organ, you can hear subtle variations in the attack, even with sustain. The physical model reproduces these variations.
Organteq offers over 4000 pipes, inspired from many great organ builders of the French Romantic and German Baroque periods: A. Cavaillé-Coll, G. Silbermann, T. Tröst, and others. The 68 organ stops, ranging from 32' to 1', can be assigned to 3 manual keyboards with a five-octave range, and a pedal keyboard with 32 notes.
Organteq is available at modartt.com and at various authorized dealers. The price is 269 EUR (269 USD). The upgrade from version 1 is 29 EUR (29 USD). A free trial version (fully functional with some notes disabled) is available for evaluation purposes.
