jOrgan is a Java-based MIDI-Processor, in other terms a Java MIDI-IDE. Its open architecture allows for complex transmitting and dynamical modifying of MIDI-Messages on their way between MIDI-Encoders and MIDI-Decoders, by means of its own MIDI Programming Language MPL. A device being used to run jOrgan must also have a suitable version of Java installed.
The jOrgan core...
The jOrgan Extensions allow the user to...
use a graphical user interface
customize your disposition conveniently. Set your MIDI inputs and basic settings
execute arbitrary commands
utilize Creative Soundcards specific features
embed a Fluidsynth sampler in jOrgan
conveniently configure LinuxSampler
import elements from different sources
Use a virtual keyboard
connect to Midi devices on other computers with LAN devices
show disposition information on an LCD
store combinations in a Memory
merge midi devices
record and share your performances
connect SAMs driven stop tabs with your disposition
work with Soundfonts
work with Midi Tools and utilities
jOrgan lets you use your computer as, e. g., a full featured virtual organ. Here's a simple chart that illustrates where jOrgan fits into the overall "organ" scheme. It recognizes that jOrgan and any associated sound rendering aspect are two separate components.
Note that for Windows users, Fluidsynth has been included in the install process for convenience. It fulfils its purpose as a suitable sound engine admirably. Users of other Operating Systems may need to download and install Fluidsynth themselves. All users are free to use whatever alternative sound engine they wish to, assuming that it is appropriate for use with jOrgan.
jOrgan users have created their own custom dispositions to meet
their personal needs. Links to their shared work can be found
Probably all such dispositions assume the use of Fluidsynth.

Note that you have to open the latest folder on the download page, if you wish to have the latest version. You should ignore the green download tab titled “Download Latest Version” and probably also the blue one titled “Get Updates”. Note further that it is not the case that each version of jOrgan is compatible with each and every version of Java or of Fluidsynth. These details are kept up to date on the STARTING page of the jORGAN DISCOVERY website.
