WHC is offering several PC programs you would like to have. Most of them can be downloaded as demo versions. I am using their software "capella" to write songs for our church chorus.   Klaus Ost Organist St. Johann Baptist, Schonstett, Bavaria    
(back) Subject: Moller specs (used to be Re: Sheetrock) From: Kevin Cartwright <kevin1@alaweb.com> Date: Wed, 11 Mar 1998 19:37:39 -0600   You know who you are wrote: > > what are it's specs??   Anyway, for those interested, I am looking at a pipe organ for my home. It is a 2/6 Moller. I will not reveal the exact location. Anyway, I thought I'd share the specs with everyone. Its 6 ranks consist of:   M.P. Moller Opus# 7884 origionally built in 1948 for First Baptist Church, Oneida, Tennessee   8' Diapason 8' Viole 8' Viole Celeste 8' Stopped Flute 8' Trumpet 16' Pedal Bourdon   And we get out of that:   PEDAL Bourdon 16' (independant) Lieblich Gedeckt 16' Diapason 8' Gedeckt 8' Octave 4' Flute 4' Great to Pedal Swell to Pedal   GREAT Diapason 8' Gedeckt 8' Viole Dolce 8' Octave 4' Flute 4' Fugura 4' Viole Twelfth 2 2/3' Viole Fifteenth 2' Trumpet 8' Chimes (Deagen Bells) Swell to Great   SWELL Bourdon 16' Gedeckt 8' Viole Dolce 8' Viole Celeste 8' Flute 4' Fugara 4' Twelfth 2 2/3' Flautino 2' Trumpet 8' Clarion 4' Tremelo   There is also a balanced expression pedal with two sets of swell shutters, register crescendo pedal, and 4 general combination pistons. I was told that it had the origional Moller grills as well.   Please direct any further questions to me (tee hee hee)...   Kevin Cartwright Greenville, Alabama mailto:kevin1@alaweb.com

(back) Subject: Re: Capella From: Joe Elliffe <jelliffe@li.net> Date: Wed, 11 Mar 1998 23:09:33 -0600   Would you please post the information on Capella etc. I accidently deleted before I got to use the info.
