New convolution sampled reverb
Place your pipe organ in a cathedral, a small chapel, a variety of concert halls, or other acoustic spaces. Convolution Sampled Reverb takes sampled pipe organ instruments to new heights of realism.
Release decay technology
Special phase-aligned release triggers supply the characteristic pressure drop of the actual end of each organ note. The release samples retain all of the sound of the pressure drop while removing the room decay. This provides the flexibility to apply any decay characteristic or reverb and is wonderfully paired with the new convolution sampled reverb.
