New American Voicing Available for Viscount UNICO 300a
In the past year, Viscount North America and our new Tonal Director, Robert Darnall, and the entire Viscount International R&D Lab, has been working hard to create additional enhanced voice models for the American Organ Market. As anyone trained in the field of organ voicing, building, and design knows, it’s not just about having excellent sounding stops, but also about having a total organ ensemble that are carefully voiced and selected to work with one another in perfect harmony. With this new UNICO 300a voicing, we have taken that to an unprecedented level.
We encourage anyone with a UNICO 300a to follow the detailed instructions, and call Technical Services at 484-857-1174 should you have any questions. You’ll need a Physis® Editor Key in order to complete the voicing upgrade. A key can be purchased through your Viscount North America Authorized Dealer or through Viscount North America Technical Services.
If you don’t already have a Viscount Organ with Physis® Technology, this is a perfect example of why having one would be a good idea for your church. Our computers, smartphones, smartwatches, televisions, and even automobiles accept performance-enhancing updates these days, so why not your organ? Well with Viscount, you’ll get just that. It’s a digital organ that actually sounds better, works better, and gets new features throughout time. It’s why Viscount is truly ‘Your Organ. Your Sound™’.

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.
