Feel the power of the pipes! Gloria-Cathedral Organs is a fantastic collection of Pipe Organ sounds from three different locations, including a classic large stone and stucco cathedral, and a smaller wooden church. The largest of the three is a massive instrument that is actually built into the side of a mountain overlooking San Francisco Bay!
Rather than recording each organ rank (groups of pipes) separately, producer Jim Miller recorded several carefully chosen combinations of "stops." The result is in an authentic and wide-ranging variety of commonly used organ sounds perfect for sacred, historical, and theatrical music, or for wherever one's creative currents flow.
Each combination of stops is offered separately on individual multis in Satellite, and there are also "virtual manual" multis, where each of three MIDI channels has different combinations that can be played with different controllers, or in a multi-track sequencing environment. An assortment of pedal tones is also included. Users can easily adjust the ambiance in Gloria by moving the mod wheel, or remove Satellite's ambiance completely and use a convolution reverb.
