Use a MIDI keyboard and a MIDI pedal connected to your iOS or macOS device to play with a subset of the famous Jeux d'orgues 2 pipe organ sample set of Joseph Basquin.
For more information, please consult the app support page http://polaron.de/JeuxdorgMini/ , the Napo documentation at http://polaron.de/Napo/ and in particular the Napo user manual at http://polaron.de/Napo/manual .
Upgraded to Napo 5.13.
- Dry/wet control for the convolution reverb.
- Redesigned reverb control: AU Reverb, Convolution Reverb and the rendering of sample releases can now be controlled independently. You can play the sample releases and still add artificial reverb.
- Included metronome (long-tap the Console view icon).
- Optional coloured borders around the stop buttons. This makes the assignment of the stops to the manuals more apparent (long-tap the Console view icon).
- Problems with iOS 15 prewarming are fixed.
Furthermore, the note range is expanded as in the extended sample set.
Ratings and Reviews
Layers great with Casio organ and pedal with iPhone adapter usb midi .
I can’t use blue tooth speakers with this at same time.
The thing I would love would be an equalizer to ramp up the base or mid range. I would like to taylor the pipe organ to be as extremely dynamic as possible. Great for what is it. I use this app all the time instead of a box for the organ and enjoy playing for hours on end.
I wonder if they could replicate the Princeton Pipe organ from the university campus cathedral?
I’ll give it five stars here, but would like to have volume enhancement for base because after playing a pipe organ, it’s hard to settle for less.
Great virtual pipe addition to existing pipe organ
I regularly play a rehomed 6-ank unit Reuter pipe organ for church services. It has some key resources and can cover the mid range to high tones very well, but lacks adequate bass to support congregational singing and reeds. The lone mixture in the organ isn’t that strong compared to dedicated rank. The organ was modified to include a MIDI sometime prior to the relocation.
Came across the JeuxdorgMini app and decided to give it a try. Loaded the app on the iPad that is used for Church Music Solution’s SOS, connected the MIDI between the two, and we suddenly had 4x additional ranks! Just needed to disable the app’s reverb and adjust the volume of individual tanks. I keep the 16’ on full time and enjoy experimenting with the reeds. The additions provided by the JeuxdorgMini app has been great and the congregation loves the enhancement.
This has been amazing and am looking to try out other apps.
My main concern with the app is stability. Occasionally, the app appears to hang, which creates the equivalent of a cipher on the digital pipes. Restarting the app usually fixes it.
The wish list item would be to able able to use Bluetooth. When connected via the iPad audio output, the app is very close to being in-sync with the physical pipes. Bluetooth added too much latency to mix the two.
A dream come true!!! (almost)
As an instrument enthusiast who loves pipe organs, I recommend this to anyone who shares the same interest! Or even just for fun; it is free, after all. And surprisingly so! The rush of power I feel when striking a chord is unmatched by any other music app I’ve tried.
I do have an issue, however: I can’t figure out how to play my own imported MIDI files in the app (I’m on iPad), if that could please be made easier, it would be heavenly.
Still, great app and 5 stars all the way!
