Announcing a new disc for PANOPTIGON from Quilter Labs! This is the second disc in the new Panoptigon format, only playable on Panoptigon.
This time we’ve dug back into the Optigan/Orchestron master tape archive to bring you PIPE ORGAN II. This was an alternate registration (flute & diapason stops) of the Whitney Studios Pipe Organ heard on the Optigan “Majestic Pipe Organ” and Orchestron “Pipe Organ” discs. This particular pipe organ sound is being heard for the first time on this disc, and in a full 60-note scale instead of the more limited 37 note scale of the previous pipe organ sound.
Recordings of the Whitney Studios organ are heard every day as the musical backdrop to Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion ride, so in honor of the 50th anniversary of the ride, we’ve tracked down a midi file of “Grim Grinning Ghosts” and played it w/ Pipe Organ II. And to keep the mood going, you’ll also hear Bach’s famous Toccata & Fugue in D Minor.
PIPE ORGAN II can only be played on PANOPTIGON, and is NOT compatible with Optigan or Orchestron.
