Hi there,

I was wodnering about the Konzerthaus Organ in terms of playing/using it:

1

I have a Synchron instrument (piano) already, so do I need different software to use this organ with my DAW because it is a Vienna Instrument instead?

2

How do you change the registration of the organ (ie the different stops and sounds on the organ) while playing? Or do you usuually record all in 1 registration as MIDI signals to you DAW, then go and change it afterwards via the DAW?

3

How do you record pedal? Do you record record the music for the hands first, then play it in the DAW and record the pedal notes with your keyboard, to match your previous playing with the hands?

Thanks!

Hi,

1. The Organ does come with the free Vienna Instruments Player.

2. In the Player you can configure the articulations in different cells (or use a preconfigured preset).
You can switch between them by Keyswitches, MIDI CC... (depends on what you configured in the player)

3. You can setup the pedal articulations in the same player instance / same cells, so all you need is to play the configured range on the keyboard; or you open an additional player instance and send the pedal MIDI signals to that instance.

To get an idea how this works see the screenshots and some videos:

The free player has not all functionalities of the Pro version, but for the organ the non-pro version should be just enough.

Best, Ben

The use of Vienna Ensemble could be useful (How to play VKH-Orgen):

As far as mixing is concerned, the instrument is of course more or less dry recorded. Either you use your own reverb effect to "distance" the organ or you use a MIRx concert venue for bringing the organ into the distance. As long as the two rooms are not the same, it can sound a bit unnatural. But if you let the piano play as close as possible and the organplays rather far away and if you then mix some tail with an algorithmic reverb in the common output channel, that will sound great. I am sure about that.

How do you record pedal? Do you record record the music for the hands first, then play it in the DAW and record the pedal notes with your keyboard, to match your previous playing with the hands?

I am not a pianist. Thus, I play voice by voice or I even set the tones with the mouse ... ;-) (manual by manual)

All the best
