OrganAssist is a free program providing a simple way of recording MIDI and editing music played on classical (church) organs. OrganAssist works with both digital organs and pipe organs equipped with a MIDI interface.
OrganAssist is the only program that enables the playback of all recordings on ANY organ complete with all registration and expression. This is limited only by the capabilities of the instrument being used.
You can see a series of videos about using OrganAssist on the Videos Page
