A synthesised pipe organ emulator

The first electronic church organ was built in 1939 by JeromeMarkowitz, founder of the Company, who had worked foryears to perfect the replication of pipe organ sound through theuse of radio tube based oscillator circuitry. In 1958, RodgersOrgan Company built the first solid-state () organ.

An electronic organ is an instrument which was influenced from , or and . Inearly days, it was designed to imitate the sound of a pipe organ,theatre organ, band sounds, or orchestral sounds. Today, it hasdeveloped into three or more forms of the instrument; the -styleinstrument used in popular music genre; the digital church organthat imitates a pipe organ for classical music and use in churches;and various type of organs from other manufacturers includes comboorgan, home organ, and software organs, etc.

The immediate predecessor of the electronic organ was the , or , an instrumentthat was very popular in homes and small churches in the latenineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In a fashion not totallyunlike that of pipe organs, reed organs generated sound by forcingair over a set of reeds by means of a bellows, usually operated byconstantly pumping a set of pedals. While reed organs had limitedtonal quality, they were small, inexpensive, self-powered, andself-contained. The reed organ was thus able to bring an organlikesound to venues that were incapable of housing or affording pipeorgans. This concept was to play an important role in thedevelopment of the electric organ.

These are instruments designed as pipe organ replacements or asdigital to play existing pipes. They have developed greatly over the lasttwo decades, and are now a common alternative to the , particularlyin . These are often referred toas digital organs. The technology has advanced tosuch a level that there is very little difference in sound timbrebetween piped and pipeless instruments, although this is stilldebated by some organists, who may argue that there is nosubstitute for a real pipe organ. However, many churchesthat are unable to afford costly pipe organs have turned toless-expensive electronic organs as a viable alternative; even acongregation that could afford a modest pipe organ may instead optfor a digital organ that simulates a pipe organ that would belarger than they could afford.

Digital organs by custom builders have also become a viablealternative for churches who may have had a pipe organ and can nolonger afford to maintain it, or for those situations where a pipeorgan is not financially possible. Some proponents of pipe organsclaim that digital organs should be regarded as no more thanmulti-note hi-fi systems of durability no more than standardelectronic equipment, in contrast to pipe organs that might stillbe playing without major rebuilding for many years. However, thehigh initial cost of pipe organs has limited their production, andall-digital and pipe/digital combination organs now significantlyoutsell pipe organs.

This style of instrument is also popular with popular concertorganists, such as , who tours with a substantial in theUSA and with an Allen in the UK, which means he does not need tospend time getting used to a new pipe organ for every concert heperforms. These instruments will often contain effects that are notseen on pipe organs, and there may be additional features,such as orchestral and percussion sounds, and console aids. Themost advanced digital organs also offer some capabilities andfeatures not found in pipe organs, such as changing historical and.

Most of the current digital church organs produce sounds basedon recorded pipe samples, while others may model the pipe sound bydigital synthesis. Custom digital organs can require large andexpensive computer systems and an organ "voicer" may finish theorgan, much like the process of regulating and voicing a pipeorgan. These organs typically use very high quality custom-designedaudio systems. The builders of both custom and factory organsinclude the firms of , Ahlborn-Galanti, ,, and .
