Yes! It's exciting on an EMG, but not as satisfying as on the hi-fi - no surprise, given that the sound of an organ with lots of stops drawn is an extremely complex mixture of frequencies. Amazingly, the 32ft tones appear to be audible - even though that's theoretically impossible, despite the bass extension of the EMG horns being amazing - I think that's partly difference tones and resultant frequencies being set up in the room, and partly psychoacoustics.

That's absolutely impressive Andy!!! The bass is outstanding, especially when the interaction between notes deliver beats. My gosh I can hardly believe it!

Should you find the time, I suggest you try to record all four sides in a clip, just as a gentlemen back then would have done in order to listen to the full composition.
