We are not the first.
The concept of electronic sound being used to replicate the pipe organ has been around since the 1930's and it will be no suprise to many people that traditional pipe organ builders were amongst the first to be involved with the production of these pipeless machines.
The organ building industry has always been keen to incorporate new technology and exploit the most it has had to offer by way of improving the methods of control and adding features to aid the organist in extracting the most potential from the instrument along with easing the great physical demands made of the organist to perform on an instrument that is far from the easiest thing to play.
