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.

The SONUS 50Dlx  is a two manual organ with a 32 note pedalboard and  38 register-tabs, each of which can select hundreds of organ and orchestra voices.  

The SONUS  50Dlx  comes with  8 organ styles (4 preset  and 4 programmable) that allow the organist to create and store an infinite number of combinations, either in the 128 internal memory locations or externally via USB memory. The parameter settings are easily accessible through the graphic display on the front panel. The “Tracker Action” style keyboard accurately detects touch by obtaining the speed of actuation of the keys, making it possible to feel a "Tracker Touch" effect, i.e .the correlation between the "touch" of the organist and the transient attack of each virtual pipe.

Developed with the award-winning and patented Physis® physical modeling technology, which reproduces the physical phenomena involved in the sound generation of the pipe organ, the Sonus 50Dlx is capable of generating the highest-fidelity, most authentic church organ sound.

The SONUS  60  is a three -manual organ with a 32 note pedalboard and  55 register-tabs, each of which can select hundreds of organ and orchestra voices.  

Available in both wood and laminate console finishes, the SONUS  60  comes with  8 organ styles (4 preset  and 4 programmable) that allow the organist to create and store an infinite number of combinations, either in the 128 internal memory locations or externally via USB memory. The parameter settings are easily accessible through the graphic display on the front panel. The “Tracker Action” style keyboard accurately detects touch by obtaining the speed of actuation of the keys, making it possible to feel a "Tracker Touch" effect, i.e .the correlation between the "touch" of the organist and the transient attack of each virtual pipe.

Developed with the award-winning and patented Physis® physical modeling technology, which reproduces the physical phenomena involved in the sound generation of the pipe organ, the Sonus 60 is capable of generating the highest-fidelity, most authentic church organ sound.

Parameter settings are easy to access, modify and store through the graphic display on the front panel.

 

The SONUS 60 uses a revolutionary new sound system developed by Viscount called RAR (Real Audio Rendering). It is able to simulate multiple sound reflections of the walls, projecting the organist at center stage and involving them in an unforgettable sound experience – even from their living room or studio.

SOUND GENERATION

Powered by Physis

Sonus sets a new milestone in the reproduction of the classic organ sound as it effectively combines the unique RAR (Real Audio Rendering) and Physis® technologies, both developed by the Viscount Research & Development department. Physis® is a technology based on the creation of complex mathematical algorithms capable of simulating the physical and acoustical phenomena underlying the generation of sound in the pipe organ. It’s a completely different approach from common digital sound sampling because every single note, every chord, every slightest nuance of the performance is not the result of a simple “playback” of a sound but it stems from a sound generation process which operates fluidly in real time, just as it occurs organically and naturally in a physical instrument. The modeling algorithms that make Physis® organs so unique is the result of a monumental amount of work that now allows the creation of innovative and versatile instruments, redefining the state of the art.

AMPLIFICATION

Amplification RAR (Real Audio Rendering)

Starting with Physis® sound generation technology, we have designed a revolutionary new audio system called RAR (Real Audio Rendering). The heart of the system is a powerful realtime sound processing algorithm that, in conjunction with four new additional audio channels located at specific points on the console, is able to recreate with great accuracy the acoustic field produced by a real pipe organ in a large reverberant space. Thanks to RAR technology, you can totally manage the impression of three-dimensional space in which the instrument sits all the way up to a large cathedral setting. All this is possible without connecting any additional speakers. The versatility of Physis® technology, together with a painstaking study on the optimization of components, has allowed us to integrate the entire system inside the new organ consoles, in an extremely compact design. 

In addition to the traditional amplification, we placed two pairs of full-range speakers at strategic points on the console: one pair on the outside panels and one pair on the top stop jamb panel. In this way, as the sound comes from different positions, it is possible to simulate the multiple reflections of the walls, ceiling and floor of a large reverberant space. The effect is quite startling. You will experience a difference just as significant as that achieved when you add a surround sound system to your home television.

KEYBOARD

“Tracker Touch” style keyboard 

Knowing the importance of the classic-organ keyboard, we’ve taken the utmost care in selecting the absolute best components. The mechanics of the keys gives the impression of a true “Tracker Action”, by obtaining the speed of actuation of the keys – making it possible to feel the “Tracker Touch” effect. i.e. the correlation between the “touch” of the organist and the transient attack of each virtual pipe.  The keyboard is not only comfortable and consistent to play, but also dynamically sensitive, which is useful for the MIDI and Orchestral sounds – but also essential to provide the “Tracker Touch” effect.

CONNECTIONS

Complete Connections

A complete selection of external connections is smartly situated.

In addition to Standard connections (MIDI In, Out, Thru; Headphones, stereo inputs), there’s a microphone with gain control, 4 external multiple outs + Sub – with the option to expand these to 12+1(Sub). There are also USB host and Device connections.

For the USB Host connection, it’s possible to use a thumb drive to save and upload sound settings.

For the USB Device connection, you can connect to a PC to personalize all aspects of the organ. With the Optional “Physis Editor” for PC, you can modify every single register for every single note – including volume, pitch, spacial disposition – and many other parameters 

INTERFACE

The buttons and tabs to turn registers on and off, the pistons and all the other commands are ergonomically designed to respond quickly and easily to the demands of the user. The display is conveniently located on the side panel with it’s own set of designated controls. The layout is smartly integrated with the instrument to allow unlimited possibility and personalization at the user’s fingertips.
