PAiA | Organtua


Forget the thin sound of single voice combo organs, ORGANTUA has three individual ranks, each with a five position octave switch, for think, textured sound. The multi-voice feature allows ranks to be detuned slightly for flanging or chorsing effects, or ranks can be tuned to wider intervals such as 4th or 5ths to simulate draw-bar organ or multi-oscillator synthesizer effects. Super wide-range sound is possible tuning each ranks apart in increments of an octave, with up to 5 octaves between voices.

The master rank utilizes a voltage controlled clock to allow pitch bending, vibrato (two waveforms), and percussion effects. The two slave ranks can each be synchronized to either the master clock or an alternate tunable clock. The output amplifier allows variable attack time and overall control. Master level control is also provided.

Optional footpedals and footswitches allow the musician to bend pitch up or down, introduce vibrato or trilling, and switch the slave ranks in and out. ORGANTUAL also features a unique "octave jump" footswitch capability, which raises all ranks one octave.

Velocity As with a piano, the harder you hit a key, the louder the sound, unlike most organs which always produce the same loudness no matter how hard you hit a key. Aftertouch Pressing a key after you activated it. Channel Aftertouch, no matter which key, it will send a Channel message. Poly Aftertouch, sends the pressure per key instead of the whole channel.
Values for OSC, LFO, Filter, Envelope are per voice unless stated otherwise.
