Freeware VSTi organ using Jeux d'orgues samples

Postby kropjesla » Thu May 28, 2009 8:04 pm

Dear Jeux d"orgues Users

In my search for a usable VST-organ plugin I only found that Hauptwerk was available.
This is however an expensive and resource-killing aplication.
There were no freeware or shareware-solutions whatshowever.
So I decided to make my own VSTi
And I did. I came across this Jeux d'orgues Soundfont and found it very good.
for anyone that is interested in the VSTi:
It is freeware and downloadable on:
http://www.sg-producties.com/codex_/downen.html
there's also some short sound-examples:
http://www.sg-producties.com/codex_/Orgeltje%20demo.zip
To use the plugin, just put the orgeltje.dll -file in the vst-plugins folder of your sequencer host.
if you need help using the plugin:
klick the text: speeltafel
Enjoy!

if you have any suggestions, please post them on this forum!

Hi Steven,
This is very interesting... have you created this VSTi from scratch or are you using a pre-built library? Where did you get the graphics? It looks good...great stuff. Please make sure that you state very clearly that the copyright for the samples belongs to Joseph, etc. According to the license agreement here, you should have Joseph's permission before distributing it.

There are two other VST type options - 'SFZ' - a VSTi that loads soundfonts, and 'LinuxSampler VST', which loads GIG sample sets. There will be a release of the Jeux D'orgues Stiehr-Mockers in GIG format in early June, so look out for that.

I would love to know more about how you created this, as there are a few other sample sets out there that might benefit from becoming a standalone VSTi :-)

Dear Graham,

I Made the VST from scratch with Synthedit.
Synthedit is a shareware programming enviroment for VST-plugins.
The graphics I made myself.
If you can tell me about the other sample-sets I would be delighted.
I've heard quite a few and most of them sound good as one-shot-sample but are very poorly looped!

p.s. I informed Joseph I used his samples and he was very excited about it. As long as it was free. (of course) In fact he asked me if he could host the program.
I plan to do some sampling on "my own" church-organ in order to make a new plugin.
But this will take another year at least.

Greetings everyone

Hi Steven,

Thanks for the information! I'll have a look at synthedit too then :-)

Some other free sampled organs include the St Steven's Anglican Church from Pedrith, Australia (http://www.appletonit.com.au/nickspage/ ... phens.html), the organ of Prudhoe Methodist Church, Northumberland (http://www.rkbev.com/prudhoemethodist.html), the 5 free stops from the St. Johannes derived to 11 stops in Gernot's Happy Birthday organ (http://www.prospectum.com/en/organs/hb/hb.htm), the Orgue du Salon - a small house organ, 250 pipes, 5 real stops on two manuals (http://sonimusicae.free.fr/orguedesalon-en.html), and there are some free/trial versions of Hauptwerk v3 organs.

I have made soundfonts of the St Stephens and the Prudhoe, so if you need more than just the wave samples please let me know.

Also, Joseph could take some photo's of the console of the Stiehr-Mocker's organ as we could use those to make authentic graphics for your next version :-)

Good luck,
GrahamG

I would be very interested in the SF-files.
If I have those I could easily replace the SF and make a new plugin whithout a lot of reprogramming.
It is possible to use wave-files as well but it is much more programming.
This is because Sythedit has a build-in SF2-oscilator.
Not having to make all the loops etc would be fantastic.
