Pedal operated reed organs (often referred to as pump organs) were once the most popular instruments in the US. Produced by the Estey Organ Company since 1860, they were often housed in ornate and elaborate pieces of furniture.
Requires KONTAKT 5 or KONTAKT 5 PLAYER version 5.7 or later
We recorded the Estey Organ by removing the back panel, which gave a more direct sound, and minimized the considerable pedal noise. We have included separate pedal noise which can be blended in (or not) for realism.
The instrument panel features authentic controls for each organ stop, as well as realistic touches such as adjustable foot pedal noises and clunky key presses. The sound can be further shaped with Attack/Release controls, velocity and filters. A custom convolution reverb processor completes the set.
