To create the Fredonia Grand Organ, we sampled the magnificent Schlicker Pipe Organ at SUNY Fredonia. Every pipe organ has a unique voice, and this one has a particularly powerful sound with incredible versatility.
Capturing the nuance and fullness of a pipe organ is no easy feat, but an instrument as grand as this deserves extra care. We’ve replicated many features of a real organ, including crescendo and swell controls, so that it plays like the real thing. Its 2,469 pipes have been deep-sampled with four mic positions and four registers (Swell, Positive, Pedal, and Great).
We sampled every single stop — a total of 39 — individually to give you full control over the instrument’s sound. Combine any or all of these to customize the tone however you’d like. Additionally, we’ve emulated the behavior of the instrument’s six couplers, so you can add or subtract octaves with the press of a button. And if you’re looking for a brilliant sound right out of the box? We’ve provided an array of powerful presets with different stop combinations and signal chains in our Console FX rack and mixer. From the delicate-voiced rohrflöte to the earth-shaking thunder of the whole instrument in chorus, the Fredonia Grand Organ will take your breath away.
Console: Modular FX Rack and Mixer
Console is a fully-featured mixer, modular effects rack, and pedal board, designed to give you full control over your mix. Effects include multiple EQs (digital and analog-style), compressors, spatial FX, modulation FX, amps, distortion pedals, reverbs, and more.
Each mic channel can be loaded with up to 8 FX in any order, plus another 8 slots on the master channel, with support for send routing as well. For Fredonia Grand Organ in particular, the “Galois Reverb” added in Kontakt 6 Player sounds fantastic as an alternative to our included custom IRs.

Fredonia Grand Organ – Simeon Amburgey
“The thing about this particular organ library is the fact that you have the option to turn on and off individual stops…it’s got a really beautiful sound to it…they’ve given you just so much flexibility with this organ here.”

Fredonia Grand Organ – SoundBytes Magazine
“The clarity and depth of the sample content is amazing and the Console section lets you easily balance it all out to your own liking. The ability to have each division on its own MIDI channel lets you approach this instrument as you would a real-world pipe organ, but the virtual implementation also allows you to take it places that no real-world organ could go. FGO has a rich and powerful sound that is tough to beat.”
Rob Mitchell (SoundBytes Magazine)
Fredonia Grand Organ – Synthsonic
“Fredonia Grand Organ is capable of producing a wide range of pipe organ sounds, from the magnificent scale of cinematic sounds to the soft and warm sounds used in churches. And even though the sound is massive and organic, it’s capable of a considerable breadth of musical styles… With so many possibilities, the capabilities of this virtual instrument are truly vast. It’s not just a “pipe-organ-like” sound. This library is truly a genuine, authentic pipe organ.”
