Modern Features Available on Today's Pipe Organs
Better control makes better music. Congregants who come to
worship each week and on special occasions will enjoy the finest music
possible when a true musician comes together with a magnificent
instrument. Complete control over your pipe organ is a prerequisite
for consistent performance. The greater the quiet responsiveness, ease
of use, and note & stop action speed of your pipe organ, the greater
your performance will be.
Upgrading your older pipe organ with a modern control system
provides many new features which will significantly improve its
responsiveness, capacity of expression, and reliability. These
features are both affordable and easily available for most churches.
Parts and service are easily and promptly available as well. Here
are some features of the modern pipe organ, designed and crafted to
meet the rigorous demands and high standards of musicians today.
COMPLETE CONTROL OF STOPS
Quiet, reliable operation by hand or through pistons.
Many general, divisional, reversible, and special purpose pistons may be included.
Set pistons, tuttis, and crescendo patterns from the organ bench quickly and easily.
Drawknobs, tongue tabs, and rocker tabs have a high quality toggle "feel".
Individualized piston settings (separate memory levels) for each organist and each musical piece.
Piston Sequencer allows lists of piston pushes to be prepared in advance. Manual Transfer control reverses Great and Choir keyboards.
Pedal Piston Couplers selectively include pedal registrations on manual pistons.
Programmable Tuttis (Sforzando pistons).
Registrations may be changed instantly at any time.
"Blind" reversible pistons allow features such as a Zimbelstern to be added without additional drawknobs or tabs.
Use "Settable" reversibles to make any group of stops reversible "on the fly".
(See "About MIDI")
Record/playback of performances.
Interface with a computer to transcribe and edit music.
