Can I attach a Viscount Organ to an Existing Pipe Organ?
Absolutely. Here are some great benefits of choosing Physis® Technology for your next hybrid organ project…
- Patented Tuning Technology- Viscount has one of the most sophisticated tuning systems available, which keeps your digital stops tuned with your pipes, no matter how far or how fast yours pipes may drift. The tuning and interface systems of hybrid Viscount organs are patented technologies that, not only constantly check the tuning of the pipes, but also monitor real time temperature shifts in the chamber to anticipate where the pipe tuning will drift next before it happens! This added layer of monitoring ensures the pipes and digital stops of your Viscount Hybrid Organ will always sound as one beautiful ensemble.
- Use Your Existing Pipe Organ Console, or Choose a New Viscount Console- Physis® Technology can be integrated into your existing pipe organ console. If you would prefer to create a larger physical stoplist, you can choose an entirely new stock or custom made Viscount Organ Console to power both pipes and digital voices.
- Qualified and Certified Viscount Pipe Organ Technicians Throughout North America- A hybrid organ is the direction many churches with existing pipe organs are choosing. The task can be quite complex, and left in the wrong hands, a disaster. By choosing Viscount for your new hybrid organ, you are selecting highly competent craftsmen who not only have a deep technical understand of the work, but also can explain what needs to be done very simply and effectively to your church committee.

The Unico series is a line of classic organs developed with Physis® physical modeling technology, entirely designed and patented by Viscount’s Italian research facilities. With this new approach, based on physical modeling of the pipe organ, you will enjoy the most faithful and malleable sound on the market today.
Thanks to accurate audio reproduction and powerful reverberation effects, Viscount has transferred the magnificence of a large pipe organ into the convenience of a compact instrument.
The Unico series has a rich library of customizable settings and parameters which allows you to select, assign and store hundreds of additional registers. Features are easy to access through a discrete backlit main control display.
The SONUS series is a line of classical organs developed with exclusive Physis® technology - designed and patented by Viscount’s laboratories. Based on modeling the physical phenomena involved in pipe organ sound generation, the sound generated is incredibly authentic.
On top of Physis® sound generation technology, we have designed a revolutionary new audio system called RAR (Real Audio Rendering). Thanks to RAR technology, you can totally manage the impression of three-dimensional space in which the instrument is placed – from the smallest room, all the way up to a large cathedral setting. The new Viscount RAR (Real Audio Rendering) technology represents a significant step forward in terms of definition, spatiality and body of the sound, which is the most authentic way yet to create that magical effect of the most important organ stop – ‘the ambience’. Sitting at the console of the new Viscount Sonus, you will experience the most realistic impression of the instrument and its setting available from any digital organ you may care to play.
The OUVERTURE is an organ with 3 keyboards, complete pedalboard and 55 registers - each of which can select hundreds of organ and orchestra voices. There is also an orchestra register for every section of the organ which can be selected from the numerous options available.
The organ comes with 8 organ styles (4 fixed 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 Ouverture is capable of generating the highest-fidelity, most authentic church organ sound.
Chorum instruments faithfully reproduce the sounds of a pipe organ with proprietary ARTEM technology (Advanced Real TEchnology Music) designed by Viscount's Research and Development labs in Italy.
The richness and beauty of stops are enhanced by an accurate reverberation system, able to recreate a great variety of acoustic environments, from a small chapel to the largest cathedral.
Chorum organs are highly functional, yet simple to use; you can store a large selection of memories and recall your stop combinations.
