We are one of the leading Viscount Classical Organ specialist companies in Europe. The organs we supply are suitable for your home, churches, schools and even cathedrals. We stock popular models in the Viscount Organ range at our Rimmers Music Edinburgh Store, giving you the opportunity to go and try one of these fabulous instruments and discuss your requirements with a Classical Organ Specialist. If you want a totally individual organ, your imagination is the only limit to what we are able to do, as we can arrange for a bespoke instrument to be created to you exact requirements.
Viscount Organs are voiced to sound like a Traditional Pipe, or Cathedral Organ. The company use ground breaking Physis technology to produce the organ sound. Classical organists can be safe in the knowledge that they will be buying a superior electronic instrument built to the highest standard.
We are delighted to have the ability to set up temporary demonstration instruments to any address in the UK for church use, so that you may hear first-hand how the instrument will support worship and allow you to review its performance in its intended final location.
What Is Physis Technology?
Physis is a computer generated physical model of an organ pipe. The model can be manipulated in just the same way as a pipe voicer would approach an organ pipe.
The model defines the pipe bore mouth size and position material of manufacture etc and by manipulation of upwards of 20 parameters the sound is defined. The same model runs across the entire keyboard compass so there is a smooth transition of sound without any noticeable break points that can sometimes be heard in sampled sound instruments.
Also with sampled sound organ technology, each note reproduces identically each time it is played. In practice even in a single steady note there is a very subtle inconsistency in what you hear, as the air flow through the pipe always has some element of random motion. This ‘micro variation’ which the Viscount Physical model reproduces, adds a completely new dimension to the sound which greatly enhances the realism. Further as the organ sound is built up by the playing of additional notes and the adding of extra stops, the model subtly changes the ensemble sound just as would occur in a true pipe organ when the available air is delivered to an ever increasing number of pipes. Because of this the sound has a life that is not heard in sampled sound instruments.A further marvelous feature of the sound processing allows Physis instruments to develop individual sound boards for each of the organs divisions. In a pipe organ, each division (Great, Swell, Choir and Pedal) is set in a different area of the case. In a classic design the Swell organ will be near the top of the instrument, the Great in the centre and the Choir organ is often set behind the player with Pedal divisions set to the extreme sides of the case.
In addition, each division will have its own sound architecture with the possibility of bass pipes at the centre moving to the trebles at either side, referred to as a cusp layout. Alternatively the trebles can be at the centre with the basses to either side referred to as an inverted cusp layout. There are many other layouts and Physis technology allows us to faithfully replicate any of theses configurations for each of the organs divisions.
Placing these instruments in a church or concert hall setting this allows us to build a sound stage of speakers that will also faithfully place the sound source of each individual note at the point in the speaker array where it would be if it were to come from an individual pipe that the real instrument would sound to produce the note.
This 42 stop instrument is set in a vinyl laminate simulated wood veneer cabinet with the benefit of a full 32 note pedal board. Based on Viscount’s sampled sound system 170 alternate voices are available, allowing the set up of 5 user created different organ styles ranging from classic English voicing to Baroque and Romantic. The console has no roll top and is especially small allowing it to fit comfortably into a smaller environment.

High Fidelity Amplification
The internal amplification of the Chorum 40 has been designed to give you an incredibly large and robust sound right out of the box.
