SD’s cardinal claim to customization centers on the crucial and definitive element of the organ - the sound, i.e. the tonal authenticity, variety and quality. The voicing possibilities with the use of the editing program, Maestro Tonalis, are unlimited. This makes it possible to create any desired organ stop sound with precision.

Apart from the tonal flexibility that the Sanus system offers, a broad range of custom options are available such that each Sanus organ is individually specified and built to the customer’s taste and demands:

In addition to the main intonation (English Romantic), a maximum of two additional intonations (e.g. French Romantic, German Baroque, Dutch Baroque, Theatre organ, etc) are available as options. The intonations are not simple tonal variations or computer manipulations of the main intonation. All the stop sounds are independent (harmonic by harmonic) for each of the intonations.

There are three options: Lighted Tab Stops (TS), Lighted Draw Stops (LDS) and Motorized Draw Stops (MDS).

Options include all plastic, wood on plastic, all solid wood. All keyboards, irrespective of type, have a top resistant light tracker action.

The 30-note parallel and radiating concave pedals specified by BDO are available as options. The AGO 32-note radiating concave pedalboard is also available.

Available options include split console for easy installation, plastic or wood roll-top cover with or without lock, and fixed or adjustable music rest. There is also the height adjustable bench as an alternative to the standard bench with storage.

There are different wood finishes (e.g. oak, mahogany, wenge etc) and colors to match the organ console and bench to the surrounding furnishings.

In addition to the Swell division, other divisions (Great, Choir, Solo and Pedal) of the Sanus organ can be enclosed and controlled with an expression pedal. It is also possible to have the Choir and Solo divisions controlled by a single expression and have the option to enclose or unenclose the Solo division with a thumb piston. A programmable Crescendo pedal can also be installed on request. Expression pedals can come in plastic or wood.

The capture system can be expanded with the Tutti, programmable General memory and programmable Pedal divisional toe pistons. The Great to Pedal and Swell to Pedal couplers can also be added as reversible toe pistons.

For further tonal expansion, the optional Sanus Voice Library is a built-in lending li¬brary from which 64 stops can be selected in addition to the basic disposition. With this facility, library voices can be assigned to designated alterable stops. There are two alterable stops per division. Thus, each division can be extended by two stops selected from 64 possibilities.

The optional recording facility lets the organ plays recorded pieces by itself. All stop changes as well as the use of expression pedals (opening and closing) are recorded by the sequencer, thus making the playback exactly as the organist performed it. Furthermore, the performance tempo can be altered. The 99 tracks can record approximately 200 pages of music.
