OUVERTURE is an organ with 3 keyboards, complete pedalboard and 55 registers – each of which can select hundreds of organ and orchestra voices. There is also an orchestra register for every section of the organ which can be selected from the numerous options available.
The organ comes with 8 organ styles (4 fixed and 4 programmable) that allow the organist to create and store an infinite number of combinations, either in the 128 internal memory locations or externally via USB memory. The parameter settings are easily accessible through the graphic display on the front panel. The “Tracker Action” style keyboard accurately detects touch by obtaining the speed of actuation of the keys, making it possible to feel a “Tracker Touch” effect, i.e .the correlation between the “touch” of the organist and the transient attack of each virtual pipe.
Developed with the award-winning and patented Physis® physical modelling technology, which reproduces the physical phenomena involved in the sound generation of the pipe organ, the Ouverture is capable of generating the highest-fidelity, most authentic church organ sound.
The Ouverture uses a revolutionary sound system developed by Viscount called RAR (Real Audio Rendering). It is able to simulate multiple sound reflections of the walls, projecting the organist at centre stage and involving them in an unforgettable sound experience – even from their living room or studio.
The majestic console was inspired by the artisanal organ crafting of French builder Cavaille-Coll – one of the most noted pipe organ builders of the 19th century and whose legendary style exemplifies elegance and refinement.
The instrument is equipped with four useful couplers in the sub-octave and super-octave, thanks to which the organist has an abundant variety of timbre combinations, within which the grand Plenum on the 32’ bass and the Concerto di Viole in 16’, 8’ and 4’ on the third manual.
A specific tremulant for the reed stop “Vox Humana” has also been included for expressive and fascinating effects. A dedicated thumb piston for each section allows the organist to play Orchestral sounds chosen from an extensive library. The Ouverture is a beautiful, as well as comfortable organ: the position of all the controls have been carefully studied and the music rack is both height and depth adjustable.
