Galileo Organ For iPad Now Available

galileo-organ-ipadYonac Software has released Galileo, a tonewheel and transistor organ emulator for the iPad and iPad Mini.

Galileo offers eleven unique organ types,  three manuals, scanner vibrato/chorus emulation, percussion module, and settable organ parameters such as leakage, keyclick, attack & release, and more.

“We aimed to design a versatile, tweakable organ that can reproduce the sounds in Jazz, Rock, Gospel and Reggae classics, yet also allow a lot of room for customization and new sounds,” says Galileo engineer Jim Yonac. “We invested a lot of time into modeling the core components of the ‘Organ Sounds’, like in our new rotary cabinet simulator and our virtual-tube ‘Class A’ inspired preamp.”

  1. My i pad 2, (paddy) is complaining.. Between Pocket Organ & Garageband B3’s, paddy dont feel like shlepping more than the 850 lbs approx weight now burdened. What to do ? Tell me it’s worth the 5 clams, and then i might sneak it in.

  2. This sounds fantastic! The sounds in that preview are so meaty, I love it! Just grabbed it, this will make a great addition to my mobile arsenal.

  3. Just got it. Sounds great. Very intuitive and well-designed interface. Plays well.

    One thing I need to figure out is how to de-activate some multi-touch gestures (like three or four finger swipes) as sometimes when I play, the organ glitches because iOS is interpreting my organ playing as a gesture.

  4. Guys, this is a long waited app on the iOS, a killer one.
    The only and unique B3 simulation ( the other existing app are just organs) that we could bring on a gig.

  5. incredible beast of a killer organ, indeed !!! Top app, must have.
    Let it play in a guitar amp with a leslie efx, wow !!!

  6. I think it might be me about “Won’t get fooled again”. And I’m no rocker, just messing around with the arp feature and it just begs for it.
    Now my lead app by a very long shot (organ is my calling).

  7. Crazy good…hard to believe that something that rich, powerful and realistic can come out of my iPad mini. Small data footprint, incredible sounds, tweakability…never mind no-brainer. If you are an iOS music producer and you are put off by the whopping five dollar fee, you have no brain lol…
