The Royal Albert Hall Organ is a sample library created by film and television composer James Everingham. Representing every nuance of this legendary, 150-year-old instrument, the Royal Albert Hall Organ offers a colossal range of expertly crafted registrations and solo stops, and runs on the free Kontakt Player for Windows or macOS.

Additional Information
When recording an organ of this size, the room it sits in is almost as much a part of the sound as the instrument itself. Full support from the Royal Albert Hall granted us unprecedented access, allowing us to capture the organ from numerous perspectives around the auditorium – from the very rear of the gallery to mere inches from the pipes themselves, with microphones hung from the roof. We’ve included our favorites as individual positions, and presented these alongside a stereo mix, offering the best of both speed and hands-on control.
The pipe organ is an awe-inspiring instrument, made famous through works like Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, and finding its way into pop culture with Hans Zimmer’s 2014 score for Interstellar. From Bruckner and Saint-Saens, to Muse, Pink Floyd and Zappa, the organ of the Royal Albert Hall has been a British cultural icon for 150 years, housed inside one of the most iconic performance spaces on the planet. Led by film composer James Everingham, decades of experience in engineering, composition and organ mastery have come together to form Enigma Recordings – presenting every nuance of this legendary instrument as a sample library of exquisite detail.
We placed a Neumann KU100 in the Royal box for a binaural perspective. This offers not only an immersive experience, but provides a clean reference point for starting your own mix – the organ as heard from the most exclusive seat in the Hall.
