  • They're back - Torrence & Yeager

    I thought their website was history, but it's back up.

    http://www.virtualpipe.org/

    I would like to know how they can build organs without stepping all over Marshall & Ogletree's patents.

    Hi,

    I don't think their venture is going to fly very well. I am not aware though, that M&O have any patents relating to their technology. If they do, then Hauptwerk, and other virtual type organ programs would be stepping on M&O patents as well.

      Why would that be true? I'm not a digital designer, but I would think there would be any number of alternative methods for designing a digital organ and doubt that any given manufacturer has managed to completely cover the field of possibilities with patents.

        Analyse this statement on their web site: "Increasingly, no one can defend such old, hackneyed, aesthetic arguments as: 'Pipes sound better, more authentic, and more realistic.'"

        It's basically saying that:
        pipes sound better than digital - ok
        pipes sound more authentic than digital - really? authentic pipes are more authentic?
        pipes are more realistic than digital - again - really? pipes are more realistic than digital? Aren't pipes simply real?

        That's like saying a real '69 Mustang Mach 1 is more realistic than a Revell model....!
