Viscount Organs: Taking the Road Less Traveled
Viscount’s motto is ‘One Family. One Brand.’ This not only signifies our dedication to our valued dealer network as family, but it also clearly states that the Viscount organ brand is everything to this company, and is only as good as the technologies and high-quality products we offer our customers.
Clearly, with the creation of Physis® Physical Modeling Technology used in our digital organs one can see that we are not swayed in our pursuit by what others are doing in the music industry, and we’re certainly not trying to imitate any other company’s strategy. The only thing in this world we are shamelessly trying to imitate is the beauty and majestic sound of the pipe organ. Instead of following, we lead by doing what we believe is best for our customers, even if that means taking the road less traveled.
Since we felt that there was a better way than sampled sound technology in digital organs, we spared no expense in developing a technology for the music industry that has already been accepted by other industries throughout the world; self-driving cars, smart phones, the meteorologists’ weather map, navigation devices, and even internet search engines all use physical modeling.
The future of music is our mission, based on clear and simple values that guide us in our pursuit of the ultimate digital organs and instruments. These values can be categorized in four simple categories.
To live in Italy means to be surrounded by beauty, from artistic masterpieces, to architecture, to rich musical traditions. We always seek to include this beauty in our traditional instruments and digital organs wherever in the world they may go.
In the production and realization of our digital organs and instruments, we always pay the highest attention to every detail. To own a Viscount instrument is to have in your hands an object of prestige which will last through time.
Viscount makes use of the most advanced technologies in software, hardware and mechanics – developed and expertly adapted specifically for the musical instrument market. Our inventions, covered by numerous patents, help us realize traditional organs and digital organ products with great impact and exclusive performance.
Music isn’t just the core of our business, but something which elevates our minds and our bodies. We put our passion into our digital organs and traditional instruments, adding this faithful attribute to your most intimate moments or performances.
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.
Our flagship Viscount organ line powered by our patented Physis® (Physical Modeling) Technology.
Our sampled-sound based Viscount organ that beats all others in price & value for the money.
