This Odf is an adaptation of Insulaners Odf, which has been in the MPS filebase (German Language pages) for some time. I made the user interface suitable for my screen (resolution 1280 x 800) and provided it with a suitable background.


There are two versions:

  • The Surround Version is the integral version of Insulaner including the “Near and the Far” samples and the Gent Belfry Carrilion. This requires both the HW sample set of the Aeolian Skinner organ (https://hauptwerk-augustine.info/Aeolian-Skinner.php) and that of the Belfry Carillon from Al Morse (https://almorse.net/content_freeorgans. html)). In this adapted Odf the the switches for "Near"and "Far"are replaced by independent controls for the volume of the “Near and Far” samples. If you connect these controls crosswise to the same control element via midi (for example: "Near" at 127 for "max open" and "Far" at 1 for "max open"), you can operate both controls with one control element and adjust the mixture as desired .

WARNING: The function "Randomize Pipe tuning" in GO must be switched off when using the Surround version. (When this feature is enabled, GO detunes the "Near" and the "Far samples of the same organ pipe differently, creating undesirable intermodulation distortion when mixing.)

  • The Stereo version only includes the "Near" samples of the organ and does not include the Carillion. This version uses less memory and is suitable for use with an external acoustic simulation with a reverberation device or a VST plug-in. Instructions for using VST plugins with Grandorgue are included

Place the Odfs in the same folder as the organ installation packages 002384 for the organ and, if desired, 001654 for the Carillion

  • Version 1.0.0

  • Good day.


    I have downloaded all the hauptwerk files and unzipped them. I have extracted the ODF files to the correct folders in the organ installation packages. But as soon as I try to open the Grandorgue ODF files I get multiple errors that a "near" file is missing. What am I doing wrong? Or what can I do to open the organ without any errors? Can you please assist me. I would really appreciate it as I was really looking forward to play this wonderful organ on my Grandorgue setup.

    • If you tried the surround version it might be caused by the Belfry Carillon that is missing. The surrond version requires the Belfry Carillon from Al Morse (https://almorse.net/content_freeorgans. html). Apparantly the link to Al Morses website is not active anymore. See also the other comments.

      Pleas try the stereoversion of the ODF that's also included in the Zip package. The stereo version does not need the Carillon.



      Hope this will help

    • Any solution? The stereo does not work for me too

  • Try the Lurie Carillon samples. Just requires a few edits to the ODF. e.g.

    Pipe001=Lurie_Carillon_samples_CC/LT_10_10_01.wav

    Pipe002=Lurie_Carillon_samples_CC/LT_10_10_02.wav

  • @Mike Is there anyone that has those Carillon sample?

  • The link https://almorse.net/content_freeorgans.html to download the Belfry Carillon from Al Morse does not work. Is there an alternative download location?

    Note: I do have the download from http://duphly.free.fr/carillon.html, but this sample set includes less wavs and uses different naming.
