App Store Description

Victorian Chapel Organ is a small but remarkably powerful instrument, perfect for small Houses of Worship, home organ practice, or for adding classic Prog rock organ sounds to a live rig.

Victorian Chapel Organ does not use samples, leading to a VERY small application footprint. Don’t be fooled by its size, this organ makes some giant sounds, and will run happily on very old hardware, including iPad 2 and iPhone 4s.

The organ may be played with 2 MIDI controller keyboards and pedals attached, just 2 keyboards, or just a single keyboard.

All three divisions can be played using a single keyboard. The couplers allow a single keyboard to play both the Great and Swell divisions, and the smart 'Auto Pedal' coupler pushes the lowest note played on the Great to the Pedal division, giving powerful bass reinforcement and allowing the full compass of the instrument to be reached via a single keyboard. The Swell division responds to Mod Wheel, Expression and Volume (CC 1, 11 and 7) as 'swell pedal', the Great channel's Volume (CC 7) sets the level of the overall instrument.

Despite having just 17 stops, the hollow flute tones of the Swell's Stopped Diapasons, plus its ranks of harmonically-rich reeds, perfectly complement the beautiful, classical smoothness of the Great. The organ offers a hugely flexible palette of sounds from its carefully-designed stops. And the organ's dynamic range is huge, the difference between a solo Vox Sorpano and all stops out / all couplers out is startling, just like a real church organ.

For those without daily access to a private chapel for practice, the organ contains an artifical reverberator that can be accessed within the 'Settings' page.

Great Stops :
8' Principal
4' Principal
2' Principal
8' Recorder
8' Oboe

Swell Stops :
8' Stopped Diapason
4' Stopped Diapason
2' Stopped Diapason
8' Bass Clarinet
4' Clarinet
2' Cor Anglais
8' Vox Soprano
8' Vox Celeste
8' Viola
2 2/3' Trumpet

Pedal Stops :
16' Gedeckt
16' Bassoon

The pedal stops have a de-emphasised fundamental in the lowest octave to aid playback on smaller speakers.

The Vox Celeste is tuned slightly sharp and is designed to beat beautifully against Vox Soprano, Viola and Bass Clarinet.

Couplers
Swell To Great : couples a keyboard on the Great channel to the Swell division

Sub Octave : all notes played on the Great are duplicated an octave down for low-end reinforcement and increased power

Auto Pedal : intelligently maps the lowest played note on the Great to the Pedal division, one octave down

Pistons
The entire console state of stops and couplers may be captured onto 7 pistons, allowing instant access to your favourite registrations. The pistons may be mapped to drum pads on popular MIDI controllers for even more rapid access to registrations.

4 on-screen LEDs give visual feedback to activity on the Great, Swell and Pedal MIDI channels, as well as helping when programming pistons. The LEDs are colour-coded, blue for Great, Green for Swell, Purple for Pedals.

Victorian Chapel Organ uses "Wavetable Trajectory" synthesis. The majority of its wavetables are computed based on harmonic analysis of real instrument samples, making this very much an "imitative" set of organ stops.

The use of wavetables leads to a very accurate organ sound at a tiny application footprint, leading to both extremely rapid boot time, and very efficient synthesis. The organ will run perfectly on hardware as old as 2011 iPad 2 and 2012 iPod Touch 5G.
