Virtualoso! features Michael Wooldridge playing the fabulous new Paramount 332 Virtual Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ.  Michael has chosen to record over an hour of popular music in many different styles to show off just how incredibly authentic and versatile these new instruments are.
The Paramount Virtual Wurlitzer consists of digital samples recorded from some of the very finest theatre organs in the world.  These samples are then brought together into a computer package, which allows the user to control them from any MIDI keyboard.  In this case, Michael used his touring Roland Atelier AT-15 to control the Pedals, Accompaniment and Great manuals, plus a Yamaha PSR-S900 to control the Solo manual.  Remember though, all of the sounds actually come from inside the computer, just controlled by Michael from these instruments, which are not heard.  The result is staggering, with players now able to sound as if they are playing one of the best Wurlitzer organs in the world, perhaps at a famous Fox Theatre or the Blackpool Tower, whilst they are actually just in their front room!

Priced at just £11.75 (including £1.75 p&p) you can order your copy by sending cheques payable to ‘M. Wooldridge’ at PO Box 4766, Worthing, West Sussex, BN11 9NY or online at
