Highlights of New Models and Products introduced at the
2012 Allen International Sales Seminar

NEW! The Allen Portatif™
The Portatif™ speaker enclosure and façade is a wonderful way to augment Allen consoles with 4-channel, self-contained audio systems. Portatif™ becomes an integral part of the organ console.

The façade features a center section of polished pipework, flanked by gloss maple embellishments. Portatif's upward-facing 4-channel speaker system parallels the instrument's kneeboard audio system, creating omni-directional and room-filling sound. Add the look and ambiance of real pipes to your Allen with Portatif™! MORE >>

NEW! RM 63 Designer Organ
This 63-stop Randy Miller Design combines newly acquired organ voices with select favorites from the Allen tonal library. Employing Allen's advanced Quantum™ technology, the organ is designed with the primary purpose of leading traditional worship. The stop list includes large scale chorus voicing, keen reeds, a variety of solo voices, an independent Cornet V, and sounds as delicate as the Flute Celeste. The organ incorporates a 24-channel Multi-Point™ audio system. The unique audio design employs smaller speaker cabinets for upper-range voices allowing this expansive audio system to produce sound with impressive clarity and spaciousness, yet fit comfortably into chambers of moderate size.

NEW! RL 58 Designer Organ
This 58-stop Rudy Lucente Design is the culmination of his many years of experience in the Catholic music tradition. Employing Allen's advanced Quantum™ technology, the organ is designed with the versatility for both worship and concert use. The stop list includes principal choruses on all divisions and independent Festival Trumpet. Stoplist Library™ offers the flexibility of seven specifications to compliment any style of music.

"The process of creating this organ was an exciting and rewarding experience. The combination of Allen's superior technology and their flexibility has resulted in a truly comprehensive instrument." - Rudy Lucente MORE >>

New Apostolic Church
in Bad Oeynhausen, Germany

The construction of the New Apostolic Church in Bad Oeynhausen, Germany was completed in June of 2012 and has a seating capacity of 600. The church's nave is marked by a strategically located architectural dome which creates an acoustic environment unmatched by many of today's newly constructed houses of worship.

The Allen Protégé 321e organ's speakers are integrated behind two pipe façades to the left and right of the sanctuary. Although the distance between the pipe cases measures more than 65 feet, the magnificence of the organ's sound was in no way compromised, thanks to Allen's expert voicing coupled with superior church acoustics.

The Allen three-manual, 38-stop instrument is adorned with a special white lacquered finish. This organ is one of 42 Allen instruments installed since 2009 in New Apostolic Churches in Germany replacing many older analog and digital organs from a variety of European builders. The congregation cited their reason for selecting an Allen Organ as high quality in both pipe sound and craftsmanship.
