Do you want to buy a new home organ? Important tips that you shouldn’t miss.
Do you want to have an organ in your living room, or is your current one due for replacement? In preparation of buying a new one, there are a number of things you should consider. We are happy to provide you with some tips which help you to buy a new organ.
1. Do you want a pipe organ or an electronic organ?
A pipe organ looks magnificent and often sounds really good. In general it is a huge instrument dat consists of hundreds of different parts. A pipe organ is handmade and therefore costs a lot money.
An electronic organ, also called a digital organ, is the perfect solution if you want to have an organ in your living room. It’s compact, relatively cheap and they have a lot of possibilities. However, you can definitely hear the difference between a classic pipe organ and an electronic organ. An electronic organ gives a less realistic sound.
2. Or do you prefer a Hauptwerk-organ?
Hauptwerk™ is a powerful software programm in which sample sets can be loaded from all kinds of organs which have been sampled. The sound of each pipe tone of the original organ is separately recorded. Therefore, a Hauptwerk-organ gives a realistic representation and can not be distinguished from a classic pipe organ.
At Mixtuur you have the possibility to choose an organ with a simplified version of Hauptwerk™ and organs with the standard version of Hauptwerk™. Of course you can choose for a custom-build organ. View our custom-build organs here.
