Allen voicing suites

• Classic Allen - The "signature" specification that made Allen the world's favourite organ! Nearly 40 years before the advent of Stoplist Library, Allen tonal directors created the specifications of Allen digital organs by selecting their favourite samples from fine pipe organs throughout the world. Tens of thousands of Allen owners know and love this legendary sound.

• English Cathedral - Characterized by Diapasons and weighty reeds, this style of organ building was brought to its height by renowned 19th-century British organ craftsman Henry Willis. Numbered among his greatest works are the organs of St. Paul's Cathedral, London and The Royal Albert Hall.

• Cavaille-Coll - Broad Montres and dominant fiery reeds are integral parts of Aristide Cavaille-Coll's tonal scheme. The genius of this most-famous French organ builder was his creation of the symphonic organ. The "Grande Orgue" became an extension of the orchestra and "a new sound for a new age".

• Schlicker - The Schlicker Organ Company specialized in instruments of Neo-Baroque design supportive of contrapuntal music. The European heritage of this American organ builder is readily evident in the sound of their instruments.

• Arp Schnitger - One of the most renowned organ builders of the 17th century, Arp Schnitger instruments are monuments of the North-German School of organ building. Fine examples of this builder's organs still exist in Germany where Allen's sound engineers captured their tonal beauty.

• Aeolian-Skinner - Under the tonal direction of G. Donald Harrison, this company developed the American Classic tonal design, characterized by firm and articulate principals, bright mixtures and French-style reeds. Its versatility enables the American Classic to authentically perform a broad range of musical styles.

• Wurlitzer - "The Mighty Wurlitzer" was perhaps the "gold standard" of theatre organs during the silent movie era. Due to Wurlitzer's "assembly line" approach to organ building, various ranks, for the most part, sounded very similar from organ to organ.

• Morton - Morton theatre organs "evolved" over the course of the silent movie era. Our digital samples are from a late 1920s organ that used higher wind pressures than the typical theatre organ and was known as one of Morton's "jazzier" instruments.

• Barton - Barton was mainly known in the Midwest area in the United States. Their most famous instrument was the theatre organ installed in the Chicago Stadium. Barton's were known for their "aggressive" voicing style.
