Philip Goeth (Virtual pipe organ) [Silbermann Freiberg, Silbermann Rötha, Velesovo]

From May 2012 (in process)

MP3 / TT:

The recordings were made by playing a two manual keyboard, which is connected to a PC. The PC runs Hauptwerk software as a sample-organizer, and loads digital organ samples into its RAM. Use samples provided by Sonus Paradisi (SP) and Milan Digital Audio (MDA). The organs that are used in my recordings are the Silbermann organ at the Petri Church in Freiberg / Germany (SP), the Silbermann organ at the Georgen Church in Rötha / Germany (MDA), as well as the Velesovo Church in Slovenia (SP).
