The Ecclesia interacts with its surroundings
To get the very best out of the Ecclesia organs, the instruments are completely tailored to suit the space in which they are to be installed. For example, whether an Ecclesia organ is to be installed in a small, upholstered theater or a cathedral with lots of marble makes a huge difference. During the installation of the instrument, a certified voicer adjusts the organ to optimize the interaction between the organ’s sound, reverb and power and the acoustics of the space.
Famous organs from around the world come to life
The Ecclesia D-577 comes with a balanced stoplist made up of stops that Johannus has hand-picked and recorded. The stops are from famous organs from around the world, and are sampled in accordance with the highest quality standards.
Unprecedented high-quality sound
DS-Core, the advanced operating system at the heart of the Ecclesia D-577, ensures that all of the different stops in the organ yield a sound of unprecedented sound quality. This makes playing an Ecclesia organ an inspiring and authentic experience.
The six sample styles bring music of every era to life
The Ecclesia D-577 always comes with two sample styles of your choice. If desired, this can be expanded to include as many as six different styles: romantic (Dutch and English), baroque (North German and South German) and symphonic (French and American).
Real Time Sampling ensures authentic pipe organ sounds
Johannus records pipe organs key by key and at different listening positions in the building concerned using the high-end Real Time Sampling technology. The authenticity of the original pipe organ resounds in every note played on the Ecclesia D-577. The use of advanced technologies such as the Dynamic Bellows Simulator, LiveTune™ and Chiff Dynamics only serves to reinforce this experience. The result is an organ that blends perfectly into its space and behaves like a true pipe organ.
State-of-the-art audio system guarantees a powerful sound
Whether the Ecclesia D-577 is in a cathedral, a concert hall or a theater, the true-to-life pipe organ sounds will fill every corner of the venue. The Ecclesia D-577 comes with high-quality amplifiers and loudspeakers, as well as an impressive bass, so that the build-up from foundation stops to overtones forms a rich, balanced and powerful sound.
DS Core makes the Ecclesia D-577 a fast and reliable organ
Ecclesia organs come with DS-Core technology that turns them into reliable instruments that always start up smoothly, can be played right away and can switch between organ styles just as rapidly. The high-quality samples are stored using advanced NAND-flash memory, and can therefore be accessed immediately once the organ has been turned on or the desired stoplist has been selected. This also makes it possible for different organists to comfortably play the organ in a variety of styles.
Extra solo and orchestral stops take the organ to the next level
In addition to the sampled pipe organ stops, the Ecclesia D-577 series also features an optional Solo Package and Symphony Package. These additional packages consist of high-quality and true-to-life solo and orchestral stops that offer the organist boundless possibilities for enriching their playing with all kinds of stops. In addition to solo stops such as violin, trumpet, flute and oboe, there are also complete string, brass and woodwind ensembles available. Our brand new Harmony function enables the organist to play polyphonic music with different instruments. All instruments can be assigned to up to six voice parts per manual, resulting in the sound of a full orchestra.
The design can be customized to suit the venue
Customizing the Ecclesia D-577 to suit the venue is about more than just the interplay between sound and acoustics. For example, the design of the instrument can be tailored to suit the surroundings and the wishes of the organist. This includes options such as the color of the organ or the type of manuals.
