Organum Venezia Banner

Organum Venezia - a must for every Classical/Church Pipe Organ player, and lover of the romantic French type church organ sound!

“Organum Venezia” is a virtual church organ. Actually located and recorded near Venice (Italy), it reflects the characteristics and sound of a typical French romantic organ like the ones built by Cavaillé-Coll and Puget.

The instrument was built by Andrea Zeni Tesero (Trento) in 1999, honoring the 100st anniversary of Cavaillé-Coll's death.

Organum Venezia shot

We captured the sounds of every pipe and more importantly, the ambience of the church in which it is located, using professional and meticulos microphone techniques. Every detail of the sound, the “breath” and “colour” of each single stop was captured to recreate a charming and evocative atmosphere that only the “King of Instruments” has to offer. From the majestic “Tutti” to the most tender “Flute” and the bright “Reeds”, every sound is at your fingertips and will make you feel like you are standing right in that most enchanting cathedral!

CONCLUSION

In summary, Organum Venezia is an excellent and authentic sounding organ with 18 freely combinable stops that are very distinguishable and sound great in almost any combination. The overall sound is nicely balanced across all 88 keys.

Apart from a bit of confusion regarding the implementation of the organ’s room tone, I absolutely love the sound of it. This lush reverb sound glues everything together and adds a lot to the majestic quality of the organ.

Besides the great sounding Combi and single stops, my absolute favorite clearly was the sound of the Tutti. It just sounds massive. You seem to feel the thrust of the pipes blowing in the church, you can really hear them breathe. This feeling of air vibrating through the hall had a very overwhelming effect to me and made playing with this library a real pleasure.

In comparison to other church organ libraries I tried, I felt that this particular one was less honky in the mids. Usually this is quite an issue with organs, especially when a lot of notes build up in the middle register.

Of course, there are some technical downsides to this instrument, like the pitiful absence of keyswitches to control the combination of stops while playing. This issue could (and should) easily be fixed with a small update from Best Service in my opinion.

The missing velocity sensitivity and round robins positively reflect the instrument’s size and – to be honest – aren’t really apparent unless you play very fast repetitions of single notes. Another positive thing to mention is the very low CPU footprint of this instrument. It can easily be integrated into existing projects without causing the processor to get to it’s knees.

With a price tag of 89$, this instrument is far more favorable than comparable products of other sample library developers like Toontrack, ProjectSAM or Hauptwerk’s flagship virtual organ. The bottom line is that with Organum Venezia, you’ll get a lovely, versatile and authentic sounding virtual pipe organ for a very reasonable price.

Fazit

Wer eine hervorragend klingende Orgel sucht, deren einzelne Register frei kombinierbar sind und die noch dazu mit einem erstklassigen Raumklang versehen sein soll, der MUSS hier zugreifen. Der Klang ist voluminös und kräftig und man hat den Eindruck sogar den Druck, den eine große Orgel erzeugt, wirklich spüren zu können. Und das mit einer äußerst geringen Speicher- und CPU-Last. und eben diesem absolut authentischen Hall einer Kirche,

Einzige Wermutstropfen: Registerwechsel sind nicht aufzuzeichnen und der Preis, der meiner Meinung nach für eine solche „kleine“ Library durchaus ein wenig niedriger hätte sein dürfen, aber immer noch als angemessen gelten darf.

Fazit (Auszug)

Die Audioqualität spielt sich auf zeitgemäß hohem Niveau ab. Die Samples sind sauber, der Klang der Orgelpfeifen wird Note für Note individuell, transparent und detailreich wiedergegeben. Insgesamt bietet Organum Venezia einen über alle 88 Tasten ausgewogenen, überzeugenden und authentisch wirkenden Klang.

Unterm Strich erhält man für einen sehr kundenfreundlichen Preis eine klanglich vielseitige, charismatisch klingende Kirchenorgel, die auch eine bereits bestehende Auswahl an Alternativen ihrer Gattung bereichern kann.

Das Preisleistungsverhältnis ist einfach sehr gut. Viel Orgel für wenig Geld. Mir waren zarte Sounds auch wichtig, die man mit Gesang kombinieren kann. Und die gibt es hier. Daumen hoch.
