From http://www.mediafire.com/stratmaninstruments2

American Classic Organ

Click to enlarge

All sounds except for the percussions were synthesized using Klangsynth or Spear. Five different dispositions are included. The 4P/104 is modeled after the Aeolian-Skinner organ in the Cathedral of St. John the Divine and includes many additional features such as selectable voices. The 3P/55 is modeled after an American Neobaroque Schlicker organ. This version includes a virtual antiphonal division, modeled after the original. The 2P/31 is modeled after a two manual Aeolian-Skinner instrument. A model of the Aeolian-Skinner organ in MacMurray College was prepared by Dan Dietzer, and the seven division 7Div/142 was prepared by an anonymous contributor which makes every voice in the soundfont available through a stop. Version 6.0 of the soundfont has been edited and completely revoiced with Polyphone for better balance and more control in the sound. Listen to a free improvisation on Andrew Lloyd-Webber's Pie Jesu played on the ACO 6.0 4P/104
