    ..::: GREAT :::.. The SOUND!! It's obvious this is where development focused its efforts, and it paid off : the Full Organ sound, for example, easily beats virtually virtually every electronic instrument I've ever heard in its fidelity to the real thing, up to and including a $13,000 electronic instrument I used to own (yes really). ..::: NOT SO GREAT :::.. (edited) The fact I'm going prematurely

    Love the ability to change the organ stops. The pedals are great too. A worthwhile app for organists and non-organists alike! Would recommend downloading (and using) this app!!!
