The Orla Grande Theatre
The Grande Theatre organ not only takes its place as the flagship or the Orla Range but also represents the culmination of 7 years of development of the Orla GT series. Like its predecessors is it a firm favorite to many. Orla just keeps getting better and better!
The Appearance of The Grande Theatre
The Orla Grande Theatre organ comes along in a beautiful cabinet, that is made from contemporary style wooden veneer. The buttons are golden, and so having a contrasting dark wood background, simply makes the organ look very elegant and stylish.
The Sounds Of The Grande Theatre
The Orla organ has a 7 speaker amplification system, which very much compliments the high definition voices that the organ has to offer you, and of course, this includes the Blackpool Type Theatre Organ voices.
Bursting with so many different sounds to offer you, from strings to saxophones, the Orla Grande Theatre will be able to provide you with the perfect sounds to impress you and your fellow listeners. The Grande theatre certainly does not come short of sounds and is, therefore, able to suit all of the popular music genres.
The Orla Grande theatre organ has certainly been designed with the home player in mind, being able to offer you key features such as Automatic Organ and Automatic Set Up. As the user, this is giving you over 200 professional registrations.
Now, is the organ easy to use?
Absolutely. A huge reason for the success of this Grande Theatre organ is due to the ease of use, which is undeniably a very very important factor that must be considered with your purchase. In order to get the most out of your organ, you need to be able to figure out how you can use it, and once this is mastered you have limitless opportunities to play to the best of your ability. There is no doubt that you will be able to show off to your fellow organists!
So, here are some of the newest additions to the Orla Grande Theatre organ (since the previous model)
- Blackpool style theatre organ sounds

Above all, whether in the hands of a home enthusiast or a professional player, the Grande Theatre will not disappoint.
Orla Grande Theatre Highlights & Features
The Orla Grande Theatre is designed to be easy to use. It is excellent for getting a great sound easily. This is due to its
seven categories of registrations. Each category covers a genre of music, varying from Virtual Theatre to Reality Flutebars
and from Reality Orchestra to Reality Band, and each one holds 16 sound registrations.
Another great feature of this organ is the big Blackpool Tower organ sounds, and
coupled with this organ’s fantastic speakers you’ll feel like you should be coming out of
the floor! Solo instruments are also very realistic too and you can combine up to four
sound/voice sections at the same time to give you that full sound, one of the sections
being a full set of drawbars.
Each voice section has a user button that allows you to allocate one user voice from a
selection of 421. This will then be available on hand as an extra panel voice. You also
have all the drawbar combinations; 44 theatre organ sounds and 12 types of digital
reverb for blending your perfect sound.
The rhythm section is vast with 106 different styles all with 5-part arrangements. This is
excellent for allowing variation and flexibility. Each of these 106 styles has 3 variations to
You also get a great feature called “Orla Magic Chord” which gives you open and closed
automatic harmonies worked out from the left-hand chord you’re playing- and it really
gives your melody a big boost.
The Orla Grande Theatre has a beautiful cabinet design with a real wood veneer finish. It
also has a veneered roll top lid. The seven-speaker amplification system offers you a full
and rich overall sound and the organ has many easy to use features like automatic organ
set-up for those who don’t want to bother playing the pedals and just want a guaranteed big full sound. And every style you
select will give you some fab allocated voices to make the complete sound.
The Grande Theatre gives you the opportunity to own a beautiful, top of the range organ with lovely
warm flute sounds and very realistic solo voice instruments, and one of the later organs from Orla
which uses up to date technology.
