    "Vital Organ"

    Organ lovers,

    Here is a re-visit to my "Vital Organ" posted a year ago, featuring:

    GPO

    Full Organ
    Plenum Pedals
    Flute plr 1
    Trumpet 1, plr 1

    You can achieve an almost infinite number of different organ sounds by quietly doubling the organ lead with single instruments like flute and/or trumpet.

    Larry,

    Very subtle use of the flute and trumpet...in fact, if you had not told us they were there, then I would have not noticed them. They blended in with the organ...sweetening, but never over-powering. I could learn a lot about the use of instruments to change the "color" of others. I have used the technique, but you could always kind of pick out the instruments. Nicely done.

    thanks,
    Paul

    On the big speakers today -- sounds fantastic, Larry!

    The doubling up and blending of the trumpet and flute is a neat trick; really works well.

    Indeed! Was having such fun rattling the timbers with it, I forgot to mention how much I liked the piece... lol.

    I've got this big old barn of a place, and the main speakers are out in a 20'x20' room with 18' ceilings. It's acoustically very "live" due to a huge glass wall of windows, tile floor, stone walls, etc.

    The speakers aren't the greatest -- but still, torque up a piece like this one in there, and it's pretty grand!

    Holy Hartford! You could play tennis in your music room!

    You're fortunate to have a lot of space to spread out.

    Wonderful piece Larry. The reverb is quite good and well suited to the GPO organ.

    I too would never have caught it if you hadn't pointed it out. I shall keep that technique in my back pocket for possible future use (along with my wallet and comb).

    F.Y.I., the reverb is included with Kontakt 2.

    Thanks for listening.
