I have all those sounds in a Kontakt sample library.

But I see what you mean. Nobody would question what the hell you are actually doing live on stage.

The Great Stalacpipe Organ

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNfJAhxnBYc

Located in the Cathedral in Luray Caverns, the Great Stalacpipe Organ is the world's largest musical instrument.
Stalactites covering 3 1/2 acres of the surrounding caverns produce tones of symphonic quality when electronically tapped by rubber-tipped mallets.

This most unique, one-of-a-kind instrument was invented in 1954 by Mr. Leland W. Sprinkle of Springfield, Virginia, a mathematician and electronic scientist at the Pentagon. He began his monumental 3 year project by searching the vast chambers of the caverns selecting stalactites to precisely match a musical scale.

Electronic mallets were wired throughout the caverns and connected to a large four-manual console. When a key is depressed, a tone occurs as the rubber-tipped plunger strikes the stalactite tuned to concert pitch.

Today, the organ is played by activating an automated system which works in a manner similar to a child's music box. The organ is also fully capable of being played manually from the console, as Leland Sprinkle did for many years.

I wish they did a controller keyboard version! I could really use those pull-string whistles, and the squeezy thing to trigger some samples from Instrument Racks! :)
