jOrgan3.19 / 3.21 Beta 1
jOrgan is a simple MIDI console that you can use to emulate any structure of an organ. It comes bundled with an intuitive set of options that should be easy to figure out by users.
Customizable setup pack
The installer contains a lot of elements that can be excluded. Apart from the core files, the full package includes the graphical user interface, Creative Soundblaster, customizer, executor, Fluidsynth sampler, importer, exporter, support for keyboard, LAN and LCD, Linuxsampler, memory, Midi merger, recorder, Soundfont, SAMs, tools and skins. Plus, users can make file associations with the .disposition format.
The interface adopts a classical look that does not include visually stunning elements, but it is quite easy to work with. Disposition files can be opened with the file browser only, since the drag-and-drop method is not supported.
It is possible to view debug details, fluid tunings, messages, properties, the memory and keyboard, elements, problems, the recorder and monitor, and so on. The views can be reset to default.
Configure program preferences
jOrgan is able to encode element names and record combination recalls, as well as merge user-defined input devices. You can also specify the number of recent files and backup counts, pick the encoding method for command lines, set the maximum number of messages, allow executions, and so on.
Evaluation and conclusion
We have not come across any issues in our tests, since the app did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. It has minimal impact on computer performance, running on low CPU and RAM. All in all, jOrgan serves its purpose.
