LATEST NEWS FROM ALLEN

QUANTUM BY ALLEN™ - POWERFUL TECHNOLOGY
THAT STRETCHES THE ENVELOPE


Featuring the science of sampling with Acoustic Portrait™ and the flexibility of seven Stoplist Library™ stop specifications (each independently voiced with its own audio settings), Allen's Quantum™ organs redefine the state-of-the-art and take your organ performance to a new level. Quantum™ technology offers unprecedented control over even the smallest sound nuance, resulting in tonal realism previously not available from a pipe-less organ. Larger Quantum organs include Multi-Point Audio™, which uses a wide array of audio channels to produce spatial imaging and clarity that exceeds the capabilities of stereo-designed organ audio systems. Quantum instruments can also be voiced both on a stop-by-stop and a note-by-note basis, as found in pipe organs. With years of research and development and an investment of millions of dollars, Quantum organs can be customized in virtually endless ways—ensuring that the sounds fit your specific style and taste.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE FULL-CAPABILITIES
OF YOUR ALLEN ORGAN'S SPEAKERS WITH EAC™


Allen organs can also be audio systems for today's dynamic music ministries' expanded music programs. Allen organs equipped with EAC™ (Expanded Audio Capabilities) allow CD players, electronic keyboards, electric guitars and other instruments to be amplified and broadcast through the organ's high-quality audio system—and the organist can play the organ at the same time!

The advanced design of EAC's three key audio components, amplifiers, mixing, and speakers, eliminates the need for a "third audio system" for your church. Additionally, with lower costs, increased tonal fidelity and efficient space utilization, Expanded Audio Capabilities offers today's dynamic music ministries affordable unique sound solutions.

ALLEN SPEAKERS - BRINGING TO LIFE THE
BEAUTY OF LEGENDARY ALLEN SOUND


Allen's industry-leading speaker technology is exemplified by its Herald™ line, which faithfully recreates the peaks accurately and at the intensity needed for the true "feel" and majesty of the pipe organ.

From our compact but powerful Herald HR-50 speakers to our Seismic Radiator™ bass speakers / sub-woofer systems, Allen builds a wide range of speakers. We carefully design each organ's speaker system to ensure that the finish installation faithfully reproduces the sound we take pride in creating.

Plus, our loudspeakers eliminate the need for a "third audio system" when your organ is equipped with EAC™. Praise Bands can accompany the organ on the organ's sound system while vocals are handled by your separate PA system.
