(back) Subject: Re: Multi-Level Pistons From: Vernon Moeller <vernonm@ccsi.com> Date: Tue, 11 Aug 1998 12:54:43 -0500   Sorry I'm late getting around to this topic, but some weekends, I just totally ignore my email. Really makes for a more enjoyable couple of days. Plus, this weekend, my PC's mouse died, so I had to wait until I could get over to Radio Shack and get another cheapie mouse and install it.   Anyway, our church's Allen has 6 memories. #1 is the memory you get when you first turn the organ on, and you can't lock it, so I don't use it at all if I can help it. Folks who come to play for weddings use it, and I occasionally check to see what kind of registrations they have selected. Sometimes, their selections are quite interesting, like a 16' reed and a 4' flute, f'rinstance. All too often, *all* the stopknobs jump out when I check a piston. Memories 2 and 4 are used by the pianist at the CCM services, because he used to be an organ student at Baylor and he likes to play the organ for one of his services now and then. I use memories 3, 5 and 6; #3 is for services, with generals 1 and 2 set for special solo effects and the rest gradually getting louder up to general 10. Memory 5 is set up for "Rex, the King of Instruments," and memory 6 is one I experiment with.   BTW, I keep a copy of the organ's operational booklet in a loose-leaf binder in the organ bench, along with an annotated table of contents recommending which pages a visiting organist might like to study. I have thoughtfully removed the page which tells how to clear all the memories. (Hey, I'm not stoopid, y'know!)   Regarding personal notes in music, I use a cryptic sense of logic in my music: M3/6 means "Use memory #3, general 6". For lengthy pieces that I might want to include in a recital or some other special playing circumstances, I have xeroxed Allen's stoplist on one side of a sheet of paper, along with their MIDI-2 stoplist on the other side, and I write at the top of the page the name of the piece and the book it is found in, and I write the piston's number next to a stop's name. When I played Franck's Piece Hero-eek a few months ago, I used 4 or 5 such sheets to get down all the combinations. I have since played it once, using those old piston settings, and it was heck setting everything up again, but it sure beat re-creating them all.   Hope this helps somebody.   \/\/\

Biggest day of the week was after church on Sunday!! Wonder why? :):):)     Robin
