Viscount has recently released a video promoting their organs with Physis technology. The narrator, in the video below, states that Viscount has “analyzed real pipes” and “modeled that into the computer. What you are hearing is more reflective of a real pipe organ.” Yet, at no time during the nearly four-minute video with a dissertation on the merits of this technology, and its ability to reproduce pipe organ sound, will the listener hear even a single pipe organ sound. Those that view this promotional video can draw their own conclusion as to the reason for this glaring omission.
