Dozens of pipe organs in your own living room
Sample sets for dozens of international pipe organs can be uploaded onto the Johannus LiVE III. Special sample sets have been specifically developed for this purpose. The sample sets are uploaded into the digital organ using a USB stick and are available almost immediately. Each USB stick contains the authentic, professional recordings of a specific international pipe organ.
Each stoplist consists of 50 stops
The Johannus LiVE III sample sets contain a large number of unique stops from dozens of international organs. A number of selected stops from the very large Johannus sample database have also been added. The result is that every sample set for the Johannus LiVE III contains exactly 50 stops, most of which come from the original pipe organ, the rest being supplementary stops in the spirit of and complementary to the character of the pipe organ concerned.
The dynamic stops accommodate interchangeable options
The Johannus LiVE III comes with dynamic stops that accommodate multiple interchangeable options. The stop that sounds depends on the stoplist that the player activates. Or in other words, the pipe organ that they choose. When a stop is activated, the stop display shows the name of the original stop on the selected pipe organ. This means that each time the organist makes a new stoplist choice, the entire stoplist changes in the blink of an eye.
From Manchester to Norden in a split second
The LiVE III unites dozens of iconic pipe organs with the infinite possibilities offered by the modern, digital living room organ. One moment the organist is playing the historic and impressive Hill & Sons organ of the Holy Name Church in Manchester, and the next they are transported by the touch of a button to the characteristic Schnitger organ of the Ludgeri Kirche in Norden.

Genuine Johannus sound quality
The authentic, professional recordings of international pipe organs are played according to the highest digital audio standards. The Johannus LiVE III audio system is composed of nine different audio channels, each with its own function, including a sub-channel for the bass. The resonance of the sound is due to four near field front audio channels at the front, and four surround channels through the sides and top of the organ. This provides a realistic surround experience of the acoustics.
The sounds of the organ blend with its surroundings
The speakers deliver the sound of the Johannus LiVE III at ear level in an advanced way, merging the organ sounds with the space in which the organ is located – just like the original pipe organ. This provides a natural and true-to-life sound experience.
