Allow me to explain. I use a very sophisticated computer program called Hauptwerk, which stores and manages high definition digital sound samples of pipe organs from around the world. Each organ sample set contains stereo digital recordings (typically 24-bit 48 kHz) of each and every pipe of that organ, together with the mechanical sounds of the organ and the reverberation of the cathedral or hall in which the organ resides.
