The Ecclesia Interacts with Its Surroundings
To get the very best out of the Ecclesia organs, the instruments are completely tailored to suit the space in which they are to be installed. For example, whether an Ecclesia organ is to be installed in a small, upholstered theater or a cathedral with lots of marble makes a huge difference. During the installation of the instrument, a certified voicer adjusts the sound of the organ to optimize the interaction between the organ and the acoustics of the space.
Turn Registration Into Sensation
The Ecclesia series offers ample options when it comes to registration. The balanced stoplists are made up of stops that Johannus has hand-picked and recorded. The stops are from renowned organs from around the world, and are sampled in accordance with the highest quality standards.
An Inspiring and Authentic Experience
DS-Core, the advanced operating system at the heart of the Ecclesia T-377, D-477 and D-577 ensures that all of the Ecclesia’s different stops yield a sound of unprecedented quality. This makes playing an Ecclesia organ an inspiring and authentic experience.
The Ecclesia Brings Out the Best in Every Genre
Each era in the history of music comes with its own idiomatic sound, which can vary from region to region. Organ music is at its best when played in the original style of the period in which it was composed. For this reason, the Ecclesia T-377, D-477 and D-577 always come with two sample styles of your choice. You can choose between the following six: Symphonic (American and French), Romantic (Dutch and English), and Baroque (North German and South German).
Sophisticated Possibilities Thanks to the Six Sample Styles
The sample styles accompanying the Ecclesia models equipped with DS-Core can be expanded to include as many as six. This means Ecclesia offers sophisticated options for the performance of organ works of any style period.
Real Time Sampling Ensures Authentic Pipe Organ Sounds
Johannus records renowned pipe organs key by key using its innovative high-end Real-time Sampling technology. The authenticity of the original pipe organ resounds in every note played on the Ecclesia series. The use of advanced technologies such as the Dynamic Bellows Simulator, LiveTune™ and Dynamic Chiff only serves to reinforce this experience. The result is an organ that blends perfectly into its space and behaves like a true pipe organ.
Fills Every Corner of the Venue
The Ecclesia series comes with high-quality amplifiers and loudspeakers, as well as an impressive bass, so that the build-up from foundation stops to overtones forms a rich, balanced and powerful sound. Whether you are playing in a cathedral, a concert hall or a theater, the true-to-life pipe organ sounds will fill every corner of the venue.
Lightning-Fast Startup Thanks to DS-Core Technology
The Ecclesia T-377, D-477 and D-577 come with DS-Core technology, which means the organs always start up, can be played right away and switch between stoplists just as rapidly.
Multiple Organists Can Play The Same Organ Comfortably
The high-quality samples are stored using advanced NAND flash memory, and can therefore be accessed immediately once the organ has been turned on or the desired stoplist has been selected. This results in a smooth, comfortable experience when an organ is used by multiple organists, even if they play in different organ styles.
The Organist Focuses Purely On the Music
Both beginner and advanced organists will be able to find their way around the Ecclesia organ in no time at all. The instrument offers numerous possibilities, yet its interface and design are extremely user-friendly and accessible. The many features are simple and clear to operate, both by means of the many thumb pistons and the menu. The user-friendly design also enables the organist to focus completely on the musical process both before and while playing.
Optional Solo and Orchestral Stops Take the Organ to the Next Level
In addition to the sampled pipe organ stops, the Ecclesia series also features an optional Solo Package and Symphony Package. These additional packages consist of high-quality and true-to-life solo and orchestral stops that offer the organist boundless possibilities for enriching their playing with all kinds of stops. In addition to solo stops such as violin, trumpet, flute and oboe, there are also complete string, brass and woodwind ensembles available. Four extra stops are already preprogrammed by default.
The Design Can be Customized to Suit the Venue
Customizing the Ecclesia organ to suit the venue is about more than just the interplay between sound and acoustics. For example, the design of the instrument can be tailored to suit the surroundings and the wishes of the organist. This includes options such as the color of the organ, the type of manuals or the design of the bench.
