Wooden Organ Pipe [Patreon Exclusive] [Decent Sampler]


The beautiful, melancholic sound of an organ pipe, powered by human lungs.  For Patrons only.


Last summer, I was out for a walk with my family when I found this wooden organ pipe on the street. I knew immediately what it was because I subscribe to Look Mum No Computer‘s Youtube channel, and he’s been resuscitating an old church organ with very similar pipes.

I knew immediately I wanted to sample it, but I couldn’t figure out how to force enough air through it to make a sustained note. I asked Simon the Magpie what I should do, and he suggested I inflate an air mattress and try to use it as a bellows. It was a brilliant idea, and it no doubt would have worked if I had been able to get a tight enough air connection between the mattress and the pipe. In the end, I ended up using good old-fashioned lung power with beautiful results.

The first preset is the raw organ sound, and the rest are variations using a range of outboard effects. I hope you enjoy these sounds as much as I have been!
