The Johannus LiVE 2T-A and 3T-A are high-quality digital organs that allow you to play dozens of international pipe organs. Both organs are equipped with a standard stoplist. The LiVE 2T-A features 44 stops, and the LiVE 3T-A has 52. However, there is something extraordinary about their stoplists…
Cross-section of international pipe organs
We developed the fixed stoplists based on a sophisticated cross-section of pipe organs from around the world. We analyzed the stoplists of dozens of international pipe organs and identified which stops occurred most frequently among these organs. These included stops such as the Principal 8’, the Flute 4’ and the Trumpet 8’. We gave these stops a place in the standard stoplist of the Johannus LiVE 2T-A and 3T-A, and you find their names on the illuminated stop tabs.
Although the stoplists of the Johannus LiVE 2T-A and 3T-A are physically static, they’re dynamic in their use. Behind the stoplists, dynamic stops are concealed. These stops change according to the pipe organ you’ve selected, and are always closely related to the stop indicated on the tab. For example, the Principal 8’ stop tab can represent both the Montre 8’ of the Trinity Episcopal Church in Greeley, Colorado, USA, and the Open Diapason 8’ of the Hill & Sons organ from the Holy Name Church in Manchester, England. When a stop tab is tapped, the display shows the original name of the stop on your selected pipe organ.
Authentic, Professional Recordings
On your Johannus LiVE 2T-A or 3T-A, you can upload sample sets for dozens of international pipe organs. These sample sets have been developed specifically for this purpose and are uploaded into the digital organ using a USB stick containing the authentic, professional recordings of a specific international pipe organ. The sample sets contain a large number of unique stops for each of the organs. Additionally, a number of selected stops from the extensive Johannus sample database have been added. As a result, each sample set for the Johannus LiVE 2T-A contains exactly 44 stops, and each sample set for the 3T-A contains exactly 52 stops. The majority of these stops come from the original pipe organ, the others are supplementary stops in the spirit of, and complementary to, the character of the selected pipe organ.
Thanks to the dynamic stoplist, dozens of international pipe organs can be played using one standard stoplist. This technological innovation is one of the defining features of the Johannus LiVE 2T-A and 3T-A and helps us place the pipe organ within everyone’s reach.
