As a professional organist I must voice my opinion that no virtual organ can compete with a good, well regulated tracker organ. To really develop a good touch one must play the real thing, otherwise it's hard to understand attack/release and to feel how the pallet is opened by the playing finger.

Nevertheless it's impractical for most persons to have a real organ at home and it's in such situations that a virtual organ can be very valuable. Not the least important reason is that, even if it's available at only a fraction of the cost of a real organ, it can sound very convincing indeed.

My hopes are that vpo's and my efforts with them will help more people enjoy the wonderful instrument that the Organ really is.

Example recordings of my samplesets

Below you can find a few recordings I've made to illustrate the sound from the new release candidate version of Bureå Funeral Chapel sampleset. Eventually I'll expand the collection to give sample recordings from every set.

The recordings were made through GrandOrgue (0.2 on Linux) and JConvolver (impulse reverb) into Ardour, exported as a wav and later converted to MP3 in Audacity.

You can of course also right click on the files and download them if you want to play them from your computer locally, especially useful if your internet connection is slow.
