  • Konzerthaus organ's registrations.

    Sorry for asking a stupid question, but I have been wondering for sometimes about the best way to write for organ.

    In deed, I have seen using V.I. that it is possible to use 2 patches at the same time for one instrument. However, an organ requires several stops at the same time, generally more than 2 (about 10 in average for one keyboard). Of course, I know there are some patches using sevral stops, but I would like to choose my own ones.

    So, I'm using VI directly by Sibelius score, can write for symphonic orchestra, but have no idea how to deal technically with an organ.

    Thanks in advance if someone has an idea.

    Hi Fabrice

    I don't own and use Sibelius. But if it works try this:

    Load a Vienna Ensemble. Open up to 16 Vienna Instruments inside the Ensemble.

    Now you will be able to load different organ stops in each of these Vienna Instruments.

    Then select for all the Instruments - which shall play "together" - the same Midi Channel...

    Unfortunately I'm not in front of my "Konzerthaus Organ" so I can't try it out myself - but it should work.

  • Hi Fabrice, that's a good suggestion by Beat. Another thing worth bearing in mind is that it is possible to have four patches sounding simultaneously inside a single VI, by using the two regular cells and the two 'parallel cells'. Each of these has its own volume control.


  • Thanks guys for your answers.

    One thing is I cannot load more than 2 patches at the same time. How do you do ? Loading 2 cells on the #2 deletes the 2 patches of #1. Sure, that would be really convenient, even using VE.


  • Open the Vienna Instrument's 'Patch Assign' window, load one patch into the upper slot and a second patch into the lower slot. Then click on the little box called 'PCELL' (just left of centre) and you get two more empty slots into which you can load patches. Using this 'Parallel Cell' method you can layer four patches - should be enough to create some nice organ sounds!


  •  Great ! I did and that works. Thanks for advising.
