After another year of programming and voicing version
2 of Aristide No. 1 is finally available. Aristide No. 1 v2 tries to bring the bombastic sound of the famous Cavaillé-Coll organ of Saint-Ouen of Rouen on Hauptwerk. The sample set tries to mimic visual and tonal features of this fantastic organ as close as possible.

The voicing for version 2 was mainly performed by Thorsten Wege, who already voiced the highly appraised Grand Symphonic Cavaillé-Coll (GSCC) sample set. I would like to thank Thorsten for his patience. He test uncounted beta versions. We did not stop until we were fully
satisfied with the functional, optical and tonal results. Sound samples of Aristide No. 1 version 2 played by Thorsten can be found at the bottom of this page.

Aristide No. 1 v2 reduces the requirements for commercial sample sets. It requires now "only" two commercial sample sets and one demo sample set:


The Saint-Maximin sample set is not required any more, as the mixtures have been reconstructed using ranks from Caen and Metz.

Aristide No. 1 v2 is a stereo sample set, although it contains a couple of front and rear ranks. These additional ranks helped to make the sound more vivid and to create a better "cathedral feeling".

Aristide No. 1 v2 uses another UniqueOrganID as v1. This allows the installation of both versions in parallel and to compare features and sound side-by-side.

This update is free for all existing users of Aristide No. 1 v1. We hope that you like this update as much as we do. Interested people can find further information in the manual. The download link for the manual can be found on the right side.

After almost one year of hard work on the graphical interface and even more on the voicing, we proudly announce the first public release of an instrument inspired by an instrument of the late Aristide Cavaillé-Coll.

Aristide No. 1 requires the installation of the following sample sets:


Important: The ODF requires the Dom Bédos Demo sample set! If the full Dom Bédos sample set is installed, the Demo has to be installed additionally.

Lorenzo Bonoldi was the sound editor. I added the graphical interface. Lorenzo is a magician! The sound is absolutely breathtaking !!!

The installation package contains two different screen sets: one is a puristic Aristide Cavaillé-Coll console (Lorenzo's preference), the second one is some "Metzified" console (my preference, see below) with subtle color rings on all stops indicating the corresponding divisions.

Each layout provides four pages: the graphical representation of the 4-manual console (landscape), a single jamb (landscape) and left and right jambs (landscape and portrait). The resolution for all screens is 4k (2160 x 3840 or 3840 x 2160, respectively). Unfortunately, the two different layouts cannot be used at the same time. However, switching from one layout to the other is simple: it just requires that the cache is rebuilt. No MIDI programming will be lost.
The price for this sample set is 99 EUR (incl. VAT).
