Virtual Instrument: Aeolus Virtual Pipe Organ

Here's an incredible synth that I've yet to see anything similar on Windows or Mac. This synth recreates (synthesizing, not with samples) a full sized pipe organ like those that have made beautiful music for hundreds of years.

This JACK enabled app is very small and light on CPU usage. Once it is started up, be sure an click on some of the options to produce sound, it doesn't make any noise by default.

I just saw the movie Pirates 2 and I won't ruin it for you, but keep an eye open for a very unique pipe organ. Also, there's a great NPR Pipe Organ radio show called Pipe Dreams. There are lots of archived shows.

I just started playing with this last night - WOW! This thing sounds incredible, and that was just through the built-in 16-bit audio! I can't wait to try this out with a 24-bit DAC.
