Nothing in the console was altered at all. The system plays the manuals, stops, swells, pistons, toe studs -the = whole schmere -plus it flushes the toilet if one finds the secret button! What is neat is, you can play and record yourself, then select a list of songs to hear, go back in the swell boxes and listen to yourself play -boo-boo's and all! Guests get off by seeing the drums, bells and clangers banging, and the chimes chiming. The unit has a juke-box thing on it where whole selections can play for hours- just like an endless music roll.

It is completely installed in the console, does = not require any modification to the organ relay and uses the Yamaha MDF3 sequencer. I installed this system on my Wurlitzer about two years and am =   completely satisfied with it. It will also operate the pistons and combination action.   Later, Phil L.

From: "Dr. Darryl Miller" <organdok@safari.net> Date: Tue, 21 Dec 1999 15:34:29 -0500   Hey to Carlo, Tom Ed, et al:   I purchased the piece to which Carlo refers thinking it would be a good Christmas postlude or Christmas recital piece, but after an hour or two learning it (obviously, not reallllllly learning it, but enough to feel I had the concept) I chose to put it back in the drawer and not program it for this year. For my money, there are better pieces which make a "bigger bang" based on Christmas carols.   Carlo, have you looked at Mike Dells' toccata on "Joy to the World?" It's = a wonderful piece, and written for me in the late 80's. I think Don Pearson has recorded it on one of the Christmas c.d.'s from the Episcopal Cathederal in Denver.   Yours,   Darryl by the Sea         At 07:17 AM 12/21/99 -0800, you wrote: >I do not know the piece but am always looking for >something new as far as carols are concerned.
