(back) Subject: Ahlborn module installation explained From: "Robert W. Taylor" <rtaylor@sockets.net> Date: Sat, 2 Sep 2000 09:08:10 -0500   In the ensuing discussion about do-it-yourself mostly-digital organs, = Larry Chace inquired about my module voicing and Tom wanted to know about switching. To answer both of those questions I should explain my project.     I am in the construction phase. My music room is a free standing building in my back yard. That building is built into the hillside and has a main floor and a lower level. It is nothing more than a concrete foundation at this time.   In a few months, the building will be usable to house the organ while restoration progresses. The pipes are now all in trays. In the meantime, the Aeolian console is being restored in my current shop. The 116-note roll player is in the shake down phase and appears to be working quite well.   A laboratory setting best describes my current set up. The naked console with its Devtronix MIDI interface sits adjacent to a small 1 hp Spencer blower that powers my Estey Minuette that is in another room. The Estey blower and DC is used to supply the console. At the other end of the console and at 90 degrees to it, is a rolling lab table. On that table is a MAC computer, Ahlborn module, and a surge strip 110v outlet. The bottom shelf of the table has a stereo amplifier and speakers.   At the current time, I am only wired to the notes--stops and couplers have yet to be connected to the Devtronix. That is only a matter of making the final connections at the console junction board.   With this set up, I can analyze the performance of all key contacts and player contacts. Rolls can be played and also stored in the computer with my Master Tracks Pro program. That program allows me to visually examine the accuracy of the roll reader output and make adjustments in bleed sizes and contact gaps.   So the current switching, Tom, is merely me unplugging the Devtronix power supply from the strip and using the internal module switch.   The module is the Romantic voiced Ahlborn. This style allows a slight imitation of Aeolian stops. I did not want to 100% duplicate the Aeolian as the module will eventually augment the pipes. The romantic voicing should really make the finished organ quite versatile. In the meantime, the module is a very necessary part of my lab which has no pipes.   Bob Taylor

Small considering the size of the building. The Static pressure is on 5" = or 5 1/4", the Swell pressure is on 4 1/2", and the Great/Pedal pressure is = on 3 3/4"   Don't know if it'll help. They probably had a high pressure for the size = of the romm. Actually, I don't think, I'm pretty positive.   Jason Comet     >From: JTTUNER@webtv.net (james turner) >Reply-To: "Residence Organ List" <DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org> >To: DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org >Subject: [Residence Organs] Moller >Date: Sat, 2 Sep 2000 02:26:26 -0500 (EST) > >Does anyone know what wind pressure Moller usually used on their small >church organs? > >Thanks > >Jim Turner > > >DIYAPASON-L: a Discussion list for owners and builders of their own >Residence Pipe Organs. >HOMEPAGE : http://www.diyapason.pipechat.org >List: mailto:DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org >Administration: mailto:owner-DIYAPASON@pipechat.org >   _________________________________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free E-mail from MSN Hotmail at http://www.hotmail.com.   Share information about yourself, create your own public profile at http://profiles.msn.com.

I've always want to hear = a MInuette. How do they sound? Do they pass for a theatre organ?   Tom

Was picked because of the needs of their action, not the pipework. 5" was almost universal in American church organs until the 'Baroque = Revival'.   At 02:26 09/02/2000 -0500, you wrote: >Does anyone know what wind pressure Moller usually used on their small >church organs? > >Thanks > >Jim Turner > > >DIYAPASON-L: a Discussion list for owners and builders of their own >Residence Pipe Organs. >HOMEPAGE : http://www.diyapason.pipechat.org >List: mailto:DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org >Administration: mailto:owner-DIYAPASON@pipechat.org > > >   Regards, Bob, in beautiful Lake County, California, USA NAWCC 140818 http://www.jps.net/rrloesch alternate mailto:cuckoobob@eudoramail.com
