electronic pipe organ
« on: November 01, 2012, 08:48:04 am »

Hi All,
I'm trying to help our church look at new options for enhancing the sound from a Baldwin E380 electronic organ. 2 manuals, 16 and 32' pedals.
I know true pipe organs really throw sound and have lots of reverberation. I'm clueless how to set this up and what speakers/processing might work. I don't have exact dimensions yet. 250 seat sanctuary, fan shape facing alter. All windows behing alter, dry wall, capet padded pews. Current speakers L/R in pockets on eirher side of alter, 2 very small twin 8" subs on balcony ledge behind congregation.
Thanks for any ideas.

Rooms produce reverberations, not necessarily the instrument although an electric instrument might well have some "reverb" effects.  I couldn't quickly find any info on the instrument itself, so don't know how easy it is to tap into the output but there will be a way, just what you need to do it is still in question.  Most likely a DI which will take both line and speaker level signals will suffice.

I suspect you'll either end up with an instrument amplifier such as a large keyboard amp or some small, self-contained "system" with a couple of speakers and a sub.  Having the sub located at a distance from the main speakers is likely not the best setup as the delay between the two sources is problematic.

Good luck.
