Lyn Larsen is one of the most recognized theatre organists of our time. In celebration of Lyn's 40-years of professional performances worldwide, Lyn has helped Allen design the LL-325Q, an organ that lives up to Lyn's reputation as a no compromise musician.

 

Lyn Larsen Comments:

In early 2004, the Allen Organ Company told me they were interested in bringing out a new model theatre organ that would be midway in size between the existing GW319, and the large GW4. They went on to tell me that they would like to add this new model to the "signature series" theatre organ line, and that they would like to put my name on it in honor of the 40th anniversary of my concert debut. I was honored and thrilled at the prospect of being able to pick and choose ranks of pipes from some of my favorite organs around the USA, and I started helping Dwight Beacham acquire some of the new samples. In traveling to several organ installations I realized I was putting together some pieces of theatre organ history.

A great many of the sound samples in the LL-324Q are new, and have not appeared in any other organs. These include a number of new things from the magnificent "Hi-Fi recording organ" made famous by George Wright in the 1950s, and currently owned by Mr. Bill Brown in Phoenix, Arizona, including new pipe ranks, new percussions, and new traps. There is one new percussion sample from the famous Loren Whitney Studio organ in Glendale, California, and several samples from the beautiful Wurlitzer organ in the San Sylmar museum in southern California, I also chose pipework from the unique organ in the Sanfilippo music salon in Barrington, Illinois, George Wright's last recording organ in Hollywood, California, and the large Aeolian organ owned by Pierre DuPont in Wilmington, Delaware.

Many of these pipe sounds, percussions, and traps were played and recorded by some of my mentors, friends, and idols from the time I started playing. To combine these into an instrument of my own design is a unique opportunity. My new LL-324Q organ will be the third Allen theatre organ that I have purchased for my home, and it has exceeded all of my hopes and expectations. I look forward to the joy of seeing this new instrument in many other homes as well!

Allen theatre organs are widely acclaimed for their accuracy in reproducing the authentic sound of the theatre pipe organ. These organs start with the finest theatre pipe organ samples, including the attack, steady state and decay. When combined with authentic digitally sampled theatre organ tremulants, this creates a magnificent ensemble that is unmatched.

Allen's theatre organs include technological advances that are truly revolutionary. With the introduction of Acoustic Portrait™, Allen theatre organs redefine the state-of-the art and will take your organ performance to a new level.

Acoustic Portrait™ - Allen instruments are the only digital organs to bring the science of sampling to acoustics! Ordinary electronic reverb is a synthetic imitation of acoustics "applied to" the sound, not created as an integral part of it. Acoustic Portrait produces the real thing in exacting detail!

Acoustic Portrait begins with a sampling process using impulse responses that measure an actual room's acoustic properties. These measurements are then stored in the organ's computer memory. Through an advanced real-time mathematical process called convolution, the acoustics of the sampled room actually become an integral part of the organ's sound, producing a noticeably smoother, more natural result than synthetic reverb. Allen engineers have recorded the acoustics of cathedrals and other acoustically desirable buildings throughout the world. With advanced processors (DSPs) and patented low-latency convolution algorithms, Acoustic Portrait reproduces the true acoustic response of each original room with stunning realism! Each organ features 10 different Acoustic Portraits, ranging from intimate rooms to cavernous cathedrals.

In addition, Allen theatre organs include four separate scaling possibilities. With the touch of a button, the entire organ's scaling and voicing changes to a completely new one. It's like having four organs in one!

Samples in our instruments are taken from many theatre pipe organs sampled for the express purpose of acquiring the finest sample library available.

For the many professional theatre organists who own Allen theatre organs, these instruments have been a dream fulfilled. Why wait? Start enjoying the finest theatre organ sounds available in your home!

Allen MIDI, Audio Products and Speakers

MIDI was developed in the 1980's for synthesizers. Although early synthesizers could produce a variety of sounds, only a few sounds could be played simultaneously. To overcome this, an interconnect language, MIDI, was developed to allow multiple instruments to be connected and controlled by a single keyboard.

Herald™ loudspeakers bring out the best in organ sounds. Transient response relates to the speed of the attack or start-up sounds (the initial "tap" of a cymbal, for example). While this is a part of the "picture", the speaker industry as a whole has ignored that an important element of transient response is the ability to respond to fast peaks in sound. These peaks also occur in the "steady state" or sustained portion of the wave and must be reproduced to make authentic sounding instruments-especially reeds, strings, mixtures, and the wind sounds of flue pipes. Such sounds are garbled by typical consumer grade "audiophile" speakers used in the digital organ industry. Allen Organ Company, with its Quantum™ Renaissance™ technology and Herald speakers, faithfully recreate the peaks accurately and at the intensity needed for the true "feel" and majesty of the pipe organ.
