Looped Edition

The Looped Edition of NDB Pipe Organ Samples, made for the professional, contains 62 stops, pre-recorded combinations and sound effects from the symphonic organs. This edition is made for those who already have a sampler software and wish to use the samples with that. All sound transients, like the sounds of the valves of the pipes or the windchest activity can be heard together with the natural reverb of the cathedrals – without any additional noise. Key features include the realtime controllable swellbox, tremolo and crescendo effects and the natural cathedral ambience achieved in two different ways: by impulse responses of the cathedrals and by release triggers. You can always choose the method that best fits your music, or even use them together. Every important combination and stop on the organs was recorded to allow performing almost every part of the pipe organ literature.
