Interface

Buttons, knobs, pistons and display give you complete control of the instrument.

The register on/off buttons, knobs, pistons and all other controls are ergonomically arranged to respond quickly and accurately to the demands of the player.  A Side-located display has an understated presence that is well integrated with the instrument – providing unlimited possibilities for customization and control.

 

Keyboard

A "Tracker Touch" style keyboard with exceptional tactile resopnse

Knowing the importance of the classic-organ keyboard, we’ve taken the utmost care in selecting the absolute best components. The mechanics of the keys gives the impression of a true “Tracker Action”, by obtaining the speed of actuation of the keys – making it possible to feel the “Tracker Touch” effect. i.e. the correlation between the “touch” of the organist and the transient attack of each virtual pipe.  The result is a comfortable and consistent feeling sure to satisfy the organ purist.

 

Pedals

3 pedals

The Chorale 8 has 3 pedals which provide fluid and precise response – allowing complete control of the expression of the Recitative, The Positive and Crescendo. 

 

Sound Generation

The entire CHORALE line uses proprietary sound technology specifically designed by Viscount in Italy to faithfully reproduce the authentic sound and performance of the traditional organ – including acoustic effects and reflection characteristics of a small church all the way up to a large catherdral.

 


These organs faithfully reproduce the sound and expression of a traditional pipe organ.

These organs have been selected for use in some of the most prestigious and demanding installations with special pipes prepared for this purpose. 

 

Amplification

Un’amplificazione fedele e flessibile.

Built inside is a powerful and balanced sound system which reproduces high-fidelity sound - while allowing  you the opportunity to equalize and modify the output according to your own taste. Sound can also be modified depending on the characteristics of the environment where the instrument is placed.
