Add Another Owner to the “Studio” Collection

Welcome John!

I zoomed in on the picture a little and it looks like you have made a few modifications? Possibly a CD/DVD drive on the lower right? And I also see a couple of buttons / switches to the right of the keyboard. Maybe some additional switches on the bottom of the organ and something up in the right side of the “light bar”? Tell us more… What modifications have you made? Looks very interesting!

WAIT!  We have an update. Turns out John as a second Wersi. A Verona GS500. That raises the question – Which one do you prefer John?

    Like I mentioned above, I am proud of both organs.
    So the Wersi Verona, it was now his turn for an Update. After I had the Verona for a month, I came to the conclusion by strange things with the organ. Things like, after a while playing on the organ, the tones were hanging, usually by sounds with sustain or long reverberation. Like I said before, time for an update. On the motherboard of the Verona was an AMD Athlon dual core processor, that has become an AMD Phenom II X6 1090T 6 Core processor. The Memory went from 2 GB DDR3 1300Mhz to 4 GB DDR3 1600Mhz, and also in the Verona the 50 GB Hard Disk became a 500 GB SSD Disk. Also renewed the CD/DVD burner, because it made a terrible noise when you put in a DVD or CD.
    The problems with Verona are a thing of the past, she is working again as it should.

    If you want to know more, take a look at my website, http://www.wersi-fan.nl, there you can see, among other things, with photos About teh Wersi Verona.

    Kind regards, John Bijl

    hello, I am John and I am proud of both organs.
    The Wersi Wega is an organ that I have built entirely myself, when it was finished, according to the construction manual.
    I’m continue building, following the de OAS orgels van Wersi.
    I built in, a PC motherboard inside the Wega, a CD / DVD burner, a Cardreader with 2 USB ports, first a harddisk and later a SSD drive 500 GB. I can play the Wega, almost like an OAS organ. eg. the wega at the same time with a VST plugins etc. You do understand that the Wega is just like a child for me. If you want, you can for example listening to my Wega with the use of a Koor VST plugin on youtube, it is me playing on my Wersi Wega. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oK8tXD9mgTw

    Yes, and of course the Wersi Verona compared with the Wega, the cabinet and the Sound Superior, It is a completely different technique. Only the PC in my Wega, comes with VST Plugins near the OAS organs. For example, B4 II from Native Instruments, which I can also play on the Wega, sounds the same as on the OAS series.

    If you want to know more, take a look at my website, http://www.wersi-fan.nl, there you can see, among other things, with photos
    there you can see extensively, among other things, with pictures, how the Wersi Wega has been Transformed.

    Sorry if my English is not Perfect, it is what I learned from TV.

      John – Love the modifications that you made. Last time I was around a soldering iron was when I built my Spectra.

      Really enjoyed looking through the pictures of inside – Brought back some memories!

        That is a few years ago Curt and I hope that they are pleasant memories.
        I know people who have tried to build an organ, I know people who have tried to build an organ, where it became one big catastrophe.

          John – Actually built both a Delta and a Spectra. On the Spectra went through and added just about every upgrade that came out – Memory Tower, Golden Gate, etc.

          Gotta say it plays a little different when you know that you built it 100% yourself. Having said that – It was nice to simply plug in the Sonic, turn it on and start playing – 🙂

            Yes, that is indeed the safest route to your organ Music pleasure.
            I still like to work on my organs and I do not like it’s when there is nothing left to do.
