  • Viscount Physis videos



    Here are some videos of a 3 manual Viscount Physis organ, in case this hasn't already been posted.</P>

    By the way, another interesting video, explaining the basics of Physical Modeling:</p>

    A second part should come soon...</p>

      Looks interesting. In theory it has the potential to completely obsolete the digital sampling technology, but what will happen in practice is another problem depending on many factors (the modeling accuracy being a major one).</p>

      Has anyonehereplayed such an organ?</p>

        It looks to me, after watching the documentary on the modelling system, that a lot would depend on the sophistication of the algorithms used for the different voicing parameters (changing the cut up, pipe scaling etc). There's no one simple mathmatical formula that will describe how a pipe sound changes as you change the cut up. Who decides at what point the tone jumps an octave (as it does in the example)?</P>


        I'm not saying it doesn't work, but (to repeat myself), it'll only be as good as the sophistication of the algorithm.</P>

          PM is new to me also, but I'm thinking that traditional Pipe Voicers would really be able to fully implement this ... and if it caught on, they logically, could supplement their incomes when things are a bit slow pipe-wise.</p>

          I'm of the belief that poor voicing and poor audio systems are the 2 main reasons, folks still think that E-orgs always sound electronic and never really pipe-like. </p>

          It should be interesting if top-notch Pipe Voicers actually voiced E-orgs. .... and maybe PE is the technology that would allow them to replicate most closely what they now do.

            Not only that, but maybe pipe organ builders could use PM technology to experiment with testing new pipe designs to see what they would sound like before going through the expense of physically making them.</P>

              Wow radagast! That may be an interesting scenario... imagine if one day pipe organ builders will be able to let you listen your organ before actually starting building it... So you can define everything in detail before starting building it. Or they could experiment on new designs... I believe this wouldn't be Sci-Fi anymore in a near future... :)

                As you said: see:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0uZIKVMmb0</p>

                "...in this way simulating the work of the organ maker"</p>

                Yours might be a good idea! who knows!</p>

                  So, nearly 2 years later and they have a PM piano.

                  Back to PM Organs; I get the impression that it hasn't (yet) obsoleted sampling :-D
