Infinity Series 243

infinity-243-1

Magnificent Highly Defined Sound

Developed with Rodgers’ new Natural Pipe Realism™ technology, the sound of Infinity Series organs is simply glorious. The specification spans various tonal genres, providing extraordinary musical expressiveness and versatility. Rodgers’ unique sampling process with up to 8 microphones captures the most detailed, authentic pipe organ sounds ever. With state-of-the-art Dimensional Sound Placement technology, the distribution of the sound creates an unprecedented level of realism. The Infinity Series, based on Roland’s powerful SSC technology, delivers the most authentic pipe organ sound available in a digital organ.

Extensive Onboard Library Access™

Rodgers’ long-standing leadership in instantly available organ flexibility has now been expanded with Library Access controls. Library Access allows the addition of any selection from the built-in Sound Library featuring 121 organ stops and 59 premium orchestral voices. Each selection can be user-voiced for volume, octave shift, tuning, warmness, presence, and brilliance, then saved to a piston for instant recall. The Model 243 has two Library Access controls each for the Swell, Great and Pedal divisions and one for the Solo division.

Exquisite Console Construction

The Infinity Series premieres elegant new console designs finely crafted from top-quality rift-sawn hardwood veneers in dark, medium and light oak standard finishes or optional custom finishes. Classic square, traditional plain and elegant cathedral side trim are available. Every Infinity Series organ comes with a glass-top lattice music desk that adjusts in four directions, an adjustable bench with music storage compartment, a central LCD menu screen, premium console trim, and a locking rolltop. LED lighted drawknobs come standard (LT model), with optional mechanical action controls (MV model).

Note-Worthy Keyboards & Pedalboards

PerformanceTouch keyboards with Ivory Feel surfaces are a Rodgers exclusive feature, with optional tracker-touch available. They’re velocity-sensitive to allow delicate control of MIDI orchestral voices. Optional velocity-sensitive wood keyboards can be ordered in a variety of key surface coverings, manufactured by Ulrich Hermann Tastaturbau in Germany (available 2013). Rodgers’ distinctive self-contained 32-note concave, radiating pedalboard automatically calibrates precise firing and release points. The pedal keys are also velocity-sensitive, ideal for orchestral voices such as Timpani. Optional parallel pedalboard available.
