But above all, of course, there is the special sound experience that you can expect from a WERSI organ – and thus also from the OAX500LS. Whether orchestral, solo and synthetic sounds of the highest quality or of course the legendary organ sounds of the famous WERSI drawbar system: All “musicians” of your OAX500LS play at the highest level!

And so that you can fully concentrate on your playing, the WERSI engineers have invested all their decades of experience in building top class organs in a particularly intuitive user interface. Thanks to clearly arranged groups of switches and the large 11.6” touch display, you can direct your WERSI orchestra in the “twinkling of an eye” – if necessary even directly while playing! Open up new musical horizons now!
