(back) Subject: Happy New Year! From: "John Haskey" <johnh@haskey.net> Date: Sat, 27 Dec 2003 09:36:51 -0800 (PST)     Greetings from chilly California! I thought I'd wish all those on the list a happy New Year and provide a brief update on what's been going on in the music room.   As reported earlier, 2003 saw the purchase of another hobbyist's project, the Gundlach Organ from eBay of all places. This all-MIDI controlled console and windchests organ is intended to mate with the existing MIDI controlled chests and more to be built. I've spent a lot of time studying the software in the console (there are 6 8051 microprocessors in the console alone) and windchests with the aim of getting the stop selection logic to be more compatible with Craig Williams' 'YAPPI' boards.   Several ranks of pipes sit on the floor waiting for chests and various other projects (chimes, chrysoglott, etc) wait in the wings. Its amazing how fast these 'little' projects stack up.   As my gift to the list I've made a few recordings of the Gundlach Organ and placed them on my website. I don't have huge amounts of bandwidth so if things seem a bit sluggish, please wait a bit and try again. You can go directly to the page by pasting the following URL into your browser:   http://haskey.com/johnh/organ/gundlach/recordings.html   I'd appreciate comments. Realize that in these recordings there are only two ranks of pipes playing! The organ is mostly in decent tune with the exception of a couple of pipes in the simulated Mixture.   Craig has started a collection of pages related to organs as well, his efforts can be seen at:   http://tadstone.home.netcom.com/Orgel.htm   Wishing you and yours a happy organ filled New Year!   ---john.

I listened to the MP3 tracks you made of the two rank organ and it sounds wonderful! It is amazing what two unified ranks can do. Can't wait to = see and hear the organ when you make the other additions. Keep us informed.   Cordially,   Steven Durham Portland, OR USA sdurham11@comcast.net     ----- Original Message ----- From: "John Haskey" <johnh@haskey.net> To: <DIYAPASON-l@pipechat.org> Sent: Saturday, December 27, 2003 9:36 AM Subject: [Residence Organs] Happy New Year!     > > Greetings from chilly California!
