GENPO (GENeral Purpose Organ)
the GENeral Purpose Organ.

GENPO is the GENeral Purpose Organ. It replicates the essential features of any pipe, theatre, or reed organ. GENPO reads a description of an organ (a .org XML file) and presents a suitable user interface for operating that organ. There are a number of high quality organ SoundFonts freely available and the .org file maps the stop sounds to organ divisions, manuals and stops. Other facilities such and couplers and presets are available. You may connect one or more MIDI keyboards to GENPO to provide the organ manuals, you can also assign one to be the 'pedalboard'. The program was written as a result of the author trying some other 'virtual organs' and having a hard time either getting them installed, or using them. The philosophy behind the program is to combine a natural interface with full functionality. GENPO does not try hard to look exactly like an organ console - but an organist should feel instantly at home when presented with the console...
