Advanced Wavetable Trajectory Synthesis delivers an astonishing Church Organ synth that sounds glorious, and is an excellent choice of "first organ" for pianists.
This is a faithful reproduction of the pipe organ in St. Just in Roseland Parish Church, Cornwall. Do not be fooled by its small size - this is a genuine, high quality Virtual Pipe Organ.
The organ can be enjoyed to its fullest extent if 2 manuals, a pedalboard and a swell pedal are attached. However, if you have limited space or a limited budget, every sound of the organ is available using just a single attached MIDI controller keyboard, by virtue of its manual couplers and the 'Auto Pedal' function.
22 speaking stops, a rich selection of couplers and a tremulant on the Swell division are in place in this digital recreation.
Additionally 8 programmable pistons are provided to allow one-touch access to frequently-used registrations, and these may be mapped to Drum Pads on modern MIDI controller keyboards. A high quality reverberation engine is provided within the app, and the reverb controls, overall instrument volume, swell, crescendo and the pistons may all be controlled by knobs or sliders on an attached MIDI controller.
All features of the real organ are reproduced, and the Virtual Pipe Organ allows maximum performance flexibility. An entire church service can be played using just a single MIDI controller, giving an incredibly cost-effective solution for churches on a budget. It can also be played with two manuals, and supports a pedalboard of up to 32-notes, with support for Swell AND Crescendo pedals. A particularly cost-effective solution is to buy an inexpensive, used 'Home Organ' with MIDI output, and use that purely as a controller, with the app generating all the sounds.
By exploiting Wavetable Trajectory Synthesis rather than sample replay, this app is tiny, yet manages to capture all the beauty and the subtle nuances of the organ.
Note that this app does not contain a playable on-screen keyboard, so either attached USB MIDI controllers, or another app capable of generating virtual MIDI are required to play the organ.

General improvements, performance enhancements.
Fixed labelling on Twelfth stop (Twelfth is 3rd harmonic, so is 2 2/3' rather than 2 1/3').
Fix for audio distortion at 48kHz on certain devices.
Ratings and Reviews
It worked straight away, perfect. A great deal of work must have gone into making this a fantastically functional app. There’s abundant information within on how to get the most out of it. At first glance, there’s nothing that I can see that’s been overlooked, there’s even a choice of temperaments.
I’d say this Organ is just about optimal for Baroque, & I’m sure your own ears will appreciate what I mean.
I very much doubt there’s an app out there that even approaches this. Everything I see & hear within is as I’d hope, including, & especially including, ease of use. 5 stars is well deserved.
St Just In Roseland App review
This facility is terrific! The response of tone and tone selection is amazing. The organ is realistic, well laid out, pleasing on the eye and ear. There are a range of controls over tone, reverb, volume and so on. The developer responds to suggestions and modifications rapidly and the most recent versions are full of enhancements over the launch version. I discovered this app a few days after launch and have been using both an organ console and a keyboard to control it. Well worth getting to turn any midi instrument into this organ.
Brilliant piece of software!
Very realistic organ stop sounds make playing this Organ very satisfying.
It would be useful (though frowned on by purists) to have a pedal operable sustain function so that the music can be held while turning pages or changing registrations.
