Theater organs are different than classical organs.  Many features within Opus-Two exist purely for theater organs.  The level of responsiveness demanded by a theater organist can often far exceed that of classical musicians.  Opus-Two is built from the ground up to handle theater organ installations with ease.  The core of Opus-Two is actually written specifically for theater organs.  The Next Generation of Opus-Two expands on the already massive feature set present in the Original Series of controllers.

Both generations feature the following standard features:

  • Trem Speed & Depth Controls (mappable to expression shoes)
  • The full array of traps, reiterations, and all the customization you would expect

The Next Generation features virtually unlimited memory levels (starting at 10,000) with the core levels stored in Long-Life FLASH memory on the controller.  USB expandability is standard on the CVA controller.  As with the Original Series, all pistons on all levels can be independently ranged.

The 2015 ATOS Convention featured a number of Opus-Two installations.  The Broadway Theater (Pitman, NJ), Sunnybrook Ballroom, and the Grand Theater were all run by Opus-Two Original Series.  The Kimball organ in the Adrian Phillips Ballroom is run by The Next Generation hybrid driving an ICS control system.
