Soundiron has launched the version 3.0 upgrade to its Lakeside Pipe Organ, which now comes with a brand new interface and sound shaping features that take this beautifully deep sampled pipe organ from warm and bold to atmospheric and other worldly.
The Lakeside Pipe Organ is a Rodgers steel and wooden pipe-electric hybrid organ recorded at the Lakeside Temple Of Practical Christianity in Oakland, California, with organist Don Sears. This large pipe organ produces its sound by driving compressed air through 850 resonant steel pipes and wooden reeds, arranged in 15 ranks. We captured 6 primary stops to span a wide tonal and dynamic range: Wooden flute stops 1 & 2, Steel Pipe stops 3, 4 & 5 and the bass foot pedal board. You can solo individual stops, use the stop mixer panel to customize your mix, or smoothly blend between them. The stop mixer panels make it easy to glide from the soft and gentle glow of the wooden reeds to the glorious roar of the steel pipes and growling low end of the bass pedals. There is also a selection of struck bar chime tuned percussion, bellows and blower sfx, sheet music page turns and more. We include a close stage position and wide hall position to give you free control over presence and ambience.
The upgraded user interface comes packed with lots of great sound-shaping controls, like Swell, Attack, Release, Transient Offset, Vibrato, Release Volume, Articulation switching, Mic Mixer, cross-fading and layering, and more.
The adaptable LFO offers selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in time. The Filter section allows you to choose from 13 lowpass, high-pass and FX filter types, with mod targets like velocity, mod-wheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control. The ARP system features a built-in velocity sequencer table with adjustable step length and control over arpeggio direction, note timing, swing, randomization and note duration.
It’s topped off with our modular FX rack, with 18 DSP effects, amp and cabinet simulators and convolution reverb with a huge range of our own custom impulse response presets in a variety of real-world and stylized sound designed environments.
