From: <DEMPAR1@aol.com> Date: Fri, 3 Dec 1999 07:46:16 EST   But, Tracker action usually means that electronic registration is unavailable....at least as far as my experience is concerned. Does = anyone know of a Tracker keyboard action that has been combined with electronic registrations?   Is this possible, or, am I having a "pipe dream?"   It is done all the time. Electronic combination actions can be installed = on mechanical action organs. If you need some technical help in that area, = you should contact Roy Redmann (Redmann Pipe Organ Co.) from Ft. Worth.

From: "Jacob Nelson" <nelsonje@plu.edu> Date: Fri, 03 Dec 1999 16:59:31 -0800 (PST)     Here at Pacific Lutheran University, we have a 3 manual Fritts tracker (of course! :-) with dual mechanical/electric stop action. You can pull the drawknobs, or you can have the the combination action do it--it's got 64 levels of memory, each of which has ten generals, and a sequencer.   People have used it for (long!) crescendos.   jake    
(back) Subject: Re: Tracker action with electronic registration... From: "Tim Bovard" <tmbovard@arkansas.net> Date: Fri, 03 Dec 1999 20:52:02 -0600   Dear Mark, and List --   There are most certainly many, many examples of organs built with mechanical (tracker) key action and electrical or electro-pneumatic stop actions. These organs quite often feature combination actions with multiple memory levels.   One only has to consult the "new organs" columns in the Diapason or TAO each month to see some of the newest examples -- many more don't ever get published in these forums.   Speaking from the "builder's perspective", the mechanics of doing this = type of "hybrid-action" organ (my term) are quite simple to accomplish, and often sought by the customers. One simply fits the sliders in the windchest with some sort of electric or electropneumatic motor (other variations exist, as well) controlled by switches fitted to the stop controls (as in an electromechanical or electropneumatic actioned organ). Once this task is accomplished, the addition of pistons and a modern combination action is the next logical step, again in just the same = fashion as an EM/EP organ console.   Tim Bovard, technician Nichols and Simpson, Inc., Organbuilders Little Rock, AR
