Gary Jordan

Gary Lavengood

OE team member Gary Lavengood started making music while in grade school and began designing and building speaker enclosures while in college. He has spent more than 40 years breathing in saw dust. His passion is excited by bass energy and texture.

The Organs

All our organs are recorded in close proximity to the pipes/chambers to provide “dry” samples. This requires that artificial reverberation be added to a more realistic result in smaller rooms. It also responds well to advanced voicing within the software.

The Samples

All our stereo 24 bit, 48K samples are recorded with the M/S method using a classic Neumann SM69 large diaphram coincidental tube microphone. MS or Mid/Side stereo is a method of making stereo recordings with two microphones that have different pick up patterns that are coincidentally positioned. You can learn more about the MS microphone technique with this white paper.
