Description

The CLV 8 is a three-manual organ with 32-note pedalboard, 50 registers + 4 orchestral registers, equipped with a laminate cabinet and roll-top key-cover. Ideal for the advanced student or medium-sized church, it has an extensive library of internal registers through which the user can easily customize the instrument.

Developed with the award-winning and patented Physis® physical modeling technology,  which reproduces the physical phenomena involved in the sound generation of the pipe organ, the CLV 8 is capable of generating the highest-fidelity, most authentic church organ sound.

Parameter settings are easy to access, modify and store through the graphic display on the front panel. The “Action Tracker” 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.

The layout is smartly integrated with the instrument to allow unlimited possbility and personalization at the user’s fingertips.

KEYBOARD

Keyboard

“Tracker Touch” style keyboard

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 keyboard is not only comfortable and consistent to play, but also dynamically sensitive, which is useful for the MIDI and Orchestral sounds – but also essential to provide the “Tracker Touch” effect.

SOUND GENERATION

SOUND GENERATION

Powered by Physis ®

Physis® Physical modeling is what makes these organs so unique. This technology involved an enormous amount of research and development – and the result is truly innovative instruments which redefine “state of the art”. The sound generation in the entire Unico series uses  Physis® technology – which builds sound through modeling technology – NOT storing samples like the 20+ year old technologies of our competitors. Physical modeling rebuilds all the elements of sound through complex algorithms – right down to the smallest imperfections. These are the ingredients which give the original instrument its character and warmth. Physis® technology reproduces the sound in REAL TIME just like it was created through a windblown pipe organ – with each sound having it’s own unique character. There are no ‘breaks’ and ‘split-points’ as you find in sampling, so the progression of the sound across the keyboard is accurate, smooth and natural. The development and refinement of the algorithms in physical modeling help make Physis organs the best in the world – and a new definition of ‘state-of-the-art’!

CONNECTIONS

Connections

A complete selection of external connections is smartly situtated. In addition to Standard connections (MIDI In, Out, Thru; Headphones, stereo inputs), there’s a microphone with gain control, 4 external multiple outs + Sub – with the option to expand these to 12+1(Sub). There are also USB host and Device connections.For the USB Host connection, it’s possible to use a thumb drive to save and upload sound settings. For the USB Device connection, you can connect to a PC to personalize all aspects of the organ. With the Optional “Physis Editor” for PC, you can modify every single register for every single note – including volume, pitch, spacial disposition – and many other parameters.

PEDALS

Pedals

2 Expression pedals and Crescendo pedal
