Allen theatre organs are widely acclaimed for their accuracy in reproducing the authentic sound of the theatre pipe organ. These organs start with the finest theatre pipe organ samples, including the attack, steady state and decay. When combined with authentic digitally sampled theatre organ tremulants, this creates a magnificent ensemble that is unmatched.

Allen's Quantum™ theatre organs include technological advances that are truly revolutionary. With the introduction of Acoustic Portrait™, Quantum™ theatre organs redefine the state-of-the art and will take your organ performance to a new level.

Acoustic Portrait™ - Quantum instruments are the only digital organs to bring the science of sampling to acoustics! Ordinary electronic reverb is a synthetic imitation of acoustics "applied to" the sound, not created as an integral part of it. Acoustic Portrait produces the real thing in exacting detail!

Acoustic Portrait begins with a sampling process using impulse responses that measure an actual room's acoustic properties. These measurements are then stored in the organ's computer memory. Through an advanced real-time mathematical process called convolution, the acoustics of the sampled room actually become an integral part of the organ's sound, producing a noticeably smoother, more natural result than synthetic reverb. Allen engineers have recorded the acoustics of cathedrals and other acoustically desirable buildings throughout the world. With advanced processors (DSPs) and patented low-latency convolution algorithms, Acoustic Portrait reproduces the true acoustic response of each original room with stunning realism! Each Quantum organ features 10 different Acoustic Portraits, ranging from intimate rooms to cavernous cathedrals.

In addition, Quantum theatre organs include four separate scaling possibilities. With the touch of a button, the entire organ's scaling and voicing changes to a completely new one. It's like having four organs in one!

Samples in our instruments are taken from many theatre pipe organs sampled for the express purpose of acquiring the finest sample library available.

For the many professional theatre organists who own Allen theatre organs, these instruments have been a dream fulfilled. Why wait? Start enjoying the finest theatre organ sounds available in your home!
