The new standard in Digital Virtual Organ technology.

PayPal Logo

The only commercial virtual organ software available that has accompanying professional tools for building sample set and organ dispositions, built by the manufacturer. You will not have to rely on dubious flaky home made third party tools, to build organs with us, stare at thousands of lines of XML or spend months doing it!

DigitalVPO RoboSampler

During the first UK COVID-19 lockdown, it became apparent that to be able to continue sampling instruments under such conditions, taking a second person to hold notes was not going to be an option.

This is our answer!!! It is the most advanced automated sampling / key holding robot currently available! It can be calibrated on keyboards up to and including 61 notes and has been designed to actually be more gentle than the human equivalent!

This is a precision engineered piece of equipment which is built to order. Current production to shipping time is approximately 4 weeks. AVAILABLE NOW!!!!!

RoboSampler is narrow enough to be used on almost any keyboard in any position, and whilst it is more gentle than an organist, it has the capability of dealing with the heaviest tracker action instruments. Simple rotary dial and button menu to operate.

Consisting of twin 20mm stainless steel rails, mounted on aluminium tracks, hi torque stepper motors and remaining components 3D printed from durable bioplastics.

Once keyboard calibrations have been programmed from the desktop application and stored to the SD card, RoboSampler can be used standalone without any further equipment being necessary.

Simple menu and status display of robot operation
