POM Organ from Catholic Church of Újpest garden-city
                                                                                History
Ujpest formerly an independant city, is now the fourth district of Budapest since her annexation in 1950. The current population of this traditional worker's district is 116.000. 

Ujpest has two Catholic parishes. St. Stephen's parish is located in the garden-town of Ujpest.

The construction of the neo-romanesque church began in 1942. After being interrupted by the war, it was completed in 1947 thanks to the community's engagement.


After the first harmonium an electric organ was used for the liturgical ceremonies. Built in 2006, the mechanical two-manual organ is a typical product of the Organ Manufacturing Company of Pécs.  The coffered ceiling of this medium size modern church makes its acoustics quite dry. Nevertheless, this modern baroque organ sounds quite nicely  

Features

The Trial Versions of the POM Ujpest has a limited compass of C2-C3 (048-c to 060-c) in the pedal, C2-G5 (048-c to 079-g) in the manuals. All other functions work. 

Content: stereo-mix version (1.12 GB), Surround version part01 (1.14 GB), part02 (1.27 GB)
Install the part01 and then the part02 of surround version. It is important to sort.

You can use the stereo mix and surround versions separately, they don't interfere with each other.

Surround vs Stereo mode

If you do not have a surround sound system, but there is enough memory (RAM), I suggest you also install the surround version. If you activate the front and rear stops too, then you will get a more compact and fuller sound than the simple stereo.
