An organ emulator with a distinct analog feel.

The Organizer is a polyphonic organ emulator designed to mimic the organ tones of yesteryear crossed with the highly unique “Guitorgan”. The organizer has a warm and very analog feel with a hint of Leslie warble that is unlike other modern octave shifters. It tracks all over the neck on both guitar and bass and will transpose single notes as well as chords. The Organizer uses a mix of analog and DSP circuitry with true bypass switching and an all analog direct (dry) signal path.

Features
  • The Controls
  • Up: Level control for the octave up.
  • Down: Level control for the octave down.
  • Choir: This control takes a mix of the octave up and octave down setting and regenerates it. The end result is an additional 2 octaves up, 2 octaves down and direct signal with a slight delay that adds a “church organ” like feel. This control only works if the octave up and octave down are in use.
  • Direct: Level control for the analog dry signal.
  • Tone: Low pass filter for the wet signal, counter clockwise rolls off the high end.

Summon the tones of yesteryear. Order today.

      Comments about EarthQuaker Devices Organizer Polyphonic Organ Emulator Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I've owned and used both the EarthQuaker Devices Organizer Polyphonic Organ Emulator Guitar Effects Pedal and the Electro-Harmonix B9 Organ Machine Guitar Effects Pedal.

      I like both pedals. Each has pros and cons. With the Earthquaker Devices Oganizer, there's really just one organ tone, but you can sculpt that sound more. You can add in a lower octave, a higher octave, and some chorus to the sound to get a really consistent and full effect. The Organizer has a much smaller footprint with top mounted jacks for the guitar cables, so it takes up about half as much space on your pedalboard. This may seem like an irrelevant detail, but on a pedal board as crowded as mine, I really like the smaller size of the Organizer. The Organizer's big con (and the reason I kept with the B9) is the Organizer works better to just add organ tone to the guitar tone. Getting just an organ tone alone (mixing the guitar out completely) requires a substantial volume drop. You can make up for the volume drop with boost pedals and other tweaks, but it's more of a challenge. Conversely, the B9, while it's easy to get "organ tone only," also easily allows you to dial guitar tone back in.

      Electro Harmonix's B9 pedal has two big pros: a greater overall variety of sounds (presets) and much more volume on tap to get the organ sound to be as loud or louder in output than the guitar sound. You can dial the B9 in just to get the organ sound with no guitar in the mix, and without using any kind of volume boost to make the organ sound as loud in the overall band mix as your guitar did before switching tones. The con is, while all of the B9's organ/key sounds are very, very good, it's hard to individually sculpt any one of the tones. You find the one you like best and go with it, and there are 9 different ones to choose from. You also can then dial in some modulation and/or the sound of the organ's keys to the sound.

      Bottom line: I'd recommend either. The Organizer will be cheaper (and much easier to find used for even cheaper still) than the B9. If you want an organ sound blended in with your guitar tone, and lots of control over that tone the Organizer is definitely the way to go. If you want to have a straight organ sound, completely subbing the organ sound for the guitar tone, the B9 is the way to go.

      Comments about EarthQuaker Devices Organizer Polyphonic Organ Emulator Guitar Effects Pedal:

      If you want a compact pedal that does organs well, it's between this and the B9. This allows far more creativity in how you produce the sounds, although if you love a B9 preset they do sound great. This is also a little smaller and a little less expensive (and can be bought at discount if you watch carefully).

      Organ Emulator

      About Me Experienced

      Pros

      • Compact Design
      • Excellent Sound Quality
      • Excellent Tracking

      Cons

      • Needs Modulation Pot
      • Non-adjustable Modulation

      Best Uses

        Comments about EarthQuaker Devices Organizer Polyphonic Organ Emulator Guitar Effects Pedal:

        This is a great octave pedal. An issue with this pedal is that you have to know that there is a chorus/vibrato-y modulation effect on the generated tones. Also, on the two-up/two-down choir knob, there is a non-zero lag that you cannot get rid of.

        If that's ok with you or if that's a sound you're looking for, then there's no reason not to buy this.

        Comments about EarthQuaker Devices Organizer Polyphonic Organ Emulator Guitar Effects Pedal:

        As written to EarthQuaker:
        Hi EarthQuaker,
        Great job on the Organizer.
        I am a Church musician, worship leader, liturgist, guitar playing guy.
        Have used various synths over the years to emulate that organ sound.
        The Organizer does a nice job and it is simple, plug and play.
        I received mine on Tuesday of last week. On Thursday I used the effect on the chorus of two hymns at a funeral, The Old Rugged Cross and In the Garden. It was exactly what the tunes needed and the effect was not too much or over the top. I made sure I asked the other musicians if they thought it was appropriate. They agreed that it was.

        Thank you. It is a real specific effect that I will use sparingly and, hopefully, tastefully. A great tool for the box!

        I have one request. If you do a redesign please add one more knob, Speed. The speed knob could control the intensity of the warble. I would like to cut the warble just a bit.

        Thanks, Congratulations on a great product!

          Comments about EarthQuaker Devices Organizer Polyphonic Organ Emulator Guitar Effects Pedal:

          My friend has the pedal and I played through a Blues Jr NOS, the sound was incredible. You can get a lot of different tones with the Organizer and it sounds great when you play with a distortion pedal too. It's a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.
