A fully featured playable Multiple Pipe Organ Simulator and TranslatorEplayOrgan is a multi purpose sample based pipe organ simulator intended to be playable by organists and versatile enough to be useful to everybody with an interest in organs. It will translate, play and record organ midi files for most organs in real time. It will load and be playable almost instantly and does not need an expensive computer with huge amounts of memory.

Estey and Wurlitzer e-roll player for Hauptwerk, Miditzer,
eplayWin32 has been replaced by eplayOrgan which can now play these e-rolls direct.
Viscount, Allen, GrandOrgue & eplayOrgan
eplayWin32 is still available below if you need it.
Version 4.0a Now Available for downloadThis graphical player will play Estey e-rolls on any Hauptwerk, Miditzer, Viscount or Allen organ and Wurlitzer Band Organ e-rolls on eplayOrgan (Windows, iMac and Linux)
It will automatically operate the manuals, pedals, stops, couplers and swell.
It is optimised for playing multiple organs simultaneously. You can run two or more copies of eplayWin32 and when you tell one to "play" all copies will start playing together.
Version 3.2 and later have an improved algorithm for activating the stops on w165 organs - all previous versions made errors when w165 stops were simultaneously opened and cancelled, particularly noticeable on the later rolls when played on eplayOrgan (on which you can see precisely what is happening). Version 4.0a still includes all of the previous features. It has been compiled with the latest minGW32 compiler, has improved and additional organ data and plays Hauptwerk Burea Church organ using Lars Palo/Graham Goode's sound font.
You can drag and drop your Estey or Wurlitzer e-roll files on to eplayWin32 and it will immediately play them.
It plays almost any organ which can be played from midi keyboards, including Hauptwerk, Miditzer, GrandOrgue, Viscount, Allen, jOrgan and eplayOrgan.
Organs included (already set up): eplayOrgan. See eplayOrgan multi purpose organ.

I have included the usual Windows Installer option in the zip, this will automatically install eplayWin32.
Alternatively eplayWin32 will work just as well if you manually install it by copying it and its supporting files to any folder on your PC. It will even work from a memory stick. For your convenience I have included a folder with all of the files in the downloadable zip.

If you play Wurlitzer 165 eRolls or Allen organs this version is a necessary update.
If you want to use eplayWin32 on a Mac this version is a necessary update.
Version 4.0a will install and run just the same on an iMac and Linux as it does on Windows. 64 bit systems preferred but will also work just as well on 32 bit systems.
