       aeolus - synthesised pipe organ emulator

       Aeolus is a synthesised (i.e. not sampled) pipe organ emulator that
       should be good enough to make an organist enjoy playing it. It is a
       software synthesiser optimised for this job, with possibly hundreds of
       controls for each stop, that enable the user to "voice" his instrument.

       Main features of the default instrument: three manuals and one pedal,
       five different temperaments, variable tuning, MIDI control of course,
       stereo, surround or Ambisonics output, flexible audio controls
       including a large church reverb.
