For the MP3 demos and the Youtube video of this Expansion Pack, exclusively organ grooves and organ licks of the SmashUpTheStudio MIDI Packs "Midi Keys: Blues Organ" and "Midi Keys: Organ" were used. The MIDI sequences in these packs have been used for introducing the Expansion Voices and Registrations of Organ Session.
"Organ Session“ emulates the sound of a Drawbar Organ in the Yamaha GENOS.
For emulating the drawbars of a Drawbar Organ were sampled chromatically. That means recording one sample for each note of each of the 9 drawbars for 5 octaves. A User waveform of one drawbar includes 61 samples. Additional there are several chromatic sampled organ-percussion settings.
Beside multisamples of drawbars and organ-percussion there are also samples of some popular organ registrations like Full Organ, First Three, First Four, Even Bars or registrations with organ vibrato. Using multisamples of complete registrations are allowing complex Drawbar Organ with a limited number of voice elements. All sample recordings were done without using amplifier, distortion and leslie. This allows flexible using of the GENOS DSPs and realistic switching between „slow“ and „fast“ using the Rotary Speaker effect.
The chromatic sampling produces a different sound of the key click for each note like you know it from a real Drawbar Organ.
The Expansion Voices and Registrations of Organ Session are offering wonderful punchy and smacky Drawbar Organ sounds with a consisely key click and adjustable percussion, rock organs with slightly or strong distortion, traditional entertainer organs, classic drawbar-registrations and cool jazz organs.
Organ Session is very useful for Rock, Pop, Jazz, Funk, House, Entertainment or Ambient music. The product is providing a huge selection of typical Drawbar Organ sounds.
The GENOS version of this soundlibrary is based on the same-named products for Yamaha MOTIF and Yamaha MONTAGE.
The Registration Banks contain 120 Voice Registrations and 40 Registrations with assignments of Preset Style and Revo Drums.
The Voice Registrations can be assigned to any styles. Conversely, after pre-selecting Preset Styles, the Voice Registrations can be selected without switching the selected Style.
A special highlight of Registrations is the use of two DSPs for the Organ Part (RIGHT 1).
Insertion Effect 1 is used for a Distortion Effect and Insertion Effect 2 for the Rotary Effect. Both effects are connected in series. By using the Distortion Effect, it is possible to realize even rocky or distorted Drawbar Organ sounds.
A total of 20 of the Voice Registrations use the Organ Flutes of the GENOS. The advantage over sample-based Voices is greater flexibility by setting drawbars with the virtual sliders in real time.
The slow-fast switching of the Rotary Speaker effect is done either with the switch "ROTARY SP/ASSIGNABLE" or with the Sustain Pedal.
Using the knobs of LIVE CONTROL various sound settings can be made intuitively.
Comparing "Organ Session" and "Live Organ“
Like "Organ Session“ also the product "Live Organ" emulates the sound of a Drawbar Organ. However, the sampling concept of "Live Organ" is different. In order to achieve the highest possible authenticity and an original Drawbar Organ feel, the samples already contain the Slow / Fast Leslie and the typical organ distortion. The internal effects of the Yamaha Keyboard such as Rotary Speaker or Distortion are not required for this type of sampling.
"Organ Session" offers a significant increase in authenticity compared to the Preset Voices due to using two DSPs for Distrotion and Rotary Speaker effects.
The "Organ Session" has considerable advantages over "Live Organ" in the area of flexibility:
With using the internal Rotary Speaker effect the speeding up and down is available.
The intensity of the Distortion effect is different depending on the used element levels of the Expansion Voices.
Through different element configurations, a wide range of popular Drawbar registrations is realized.
