About NDB

NDB Pipe Organ Samples  is a comprehensive sound sampling library containing original pipe organ sounds from two symphonic organs of two Hungarian cathedrals. The 6 DVD collection contains 3400 samples in more than 23 GB of sounds in 24-bit resolution and features more than 60 stops and combinations together from both organs. Scientific measurements of the acoustical environments of the cathedrals allowed NDB to reach yet unheard level of authenticity.

According to what organists and organ experts say, Notre Dame de Budapest Pipe Organ Samples  is the ultimate pipe organ sampling DVD – the only sample collection, which really contains all important stop combinations of a symphonic organ and offers real, scientifically measured swell box, crescendo and tremolo effects – just like a real pipe organ.
