(back) Subject: Tracker with moveable console? From: Shirley <pnst@snip.net> Date: Tue, 16 Nov 1999 13:51:08 -0500   Hi, folks -   I just heard that there is a tracker installation planned that will have dual consoles, one moveable. A few of us were conjecturing how that could be, and one suggestion was that it's possible through the use of fiber optics.   This is something I hadn't heard before.... fiber optics?!?   --Shirley   PS - check out this website http://www.phillyburbs.com/intelligencerrecord/indexR.shtml for an article on Abington Pres.'s new minister of music.  
(back) Subject: Re: Tracker with moveable console? From: bud <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Tue, 16 Nov 1999 11:13:53 -0800   It's probably a dual action ... the fixed console with straight tracker action, and the moveable console firing electric or electro-pneumatic pulldowns via a cable of whatever kind ... I seem to recall Klais (?) = doing some of that in Germany. I just wonder how they do it so it doesn't = interfere with the touch of the tracker, but I suppose there are ways.   Something similar (an electric chancel console with velocity-sensitive = keys to play the gallery tracker organ) was begun with the Fisk at All Saints' Altamont Station in Boston, but it was abandoned when the Rector changed = his mind, or because of cost, or something ... I don't think it was a problem = with the action itself.   A velocity-sensitive electronic action was also tried at Notre Dame in = Paris, but it failed soon after it was installed ... I don't know if it was = repaired or replaced, but at last report the organ was playing again. That, of = course, wasn't a tracker or Barker lever action ... it had long since been electrocuted, but the slider chests remained, or were restored to the = organ.   The reason for the velocity-sensitive key action was to try and imitate tracker and Barker lever action's control over the speed of the opening of = the pallets on the slider chests ... something about which I think much too = much is made... I once heard Luigi Tagliavini give a MOST expressive and = articulate recital on a MOST recalcitrant electro-pneumatic organ ... ditto Heiller, ditto Marie-Claire, etc. etc. etc., so it CAN be done. There are other = reasons for having tracker action, but with three manuals coupled mechanically, I can't imagine that the action is more subtle than electric action. For the most part, either the pallets are open, or they're closed (grin).   Cheers,   Bud   Shirley wrote:   > Hi, folks - > > I just heard that there is a tracker installation planned that will have > dual consoles, one moveable.

(back) Subject: Re: Tracker with moveable console? From: SProt82850@cs.com Date: Tue, 16 Nov 1999 14:20:05 EST   Shirley (and the list of course!!)-   There are a number of organs around the world with an attached tracker console and a separate movable console that makes use of electric = pulldowns that run in tandem with the tracker action. The movable electric console would of course have a cable of some kind connecting it to the action and these days with modern technology all it takes is a tiny(!!) fiber optic cable to send signals from the console. I believe St. Eustache has such = an arrangement and that a large concert organ in Sweden also has dual = consoles. Anyone know of any or play one in the US?   Steven

A few of us were conjecturing how that = could >be, and one suggestion was that it's possible through the use of fiber >optics. The easiest way to explain it is that one console is a tracker and the other is a regular electric console. It's been done many times with varying degrees of success. Essentially, the organ is a regular tracker, but with the addition of electromechanical motors at some point in the mechanical train between the keys and the pallets. The movable console plays the organ as a slider chest with electric pulldowns, and the = attached mechanical console plays as a straight mechanical instrument.   Rob

The usual procedure would be to have electric or (preferably) electro-pneumatic pull-downs attached to the pallets and working in parallel with the trackers. The fixed console would then be an ordinary tracker one and the moveable console would be an ordinary electric one.   John Speller

The descant so piercing is soaring above A melody only a mother could love.   They have a director, but one wonders why No one in the choir deigns turn him an eye It's clear by his flailing, he wants them to look, But each singer slouches with nose in the book.   Despite the offenses, the music rings out The folks in the pews are enraptured, no doubt. Their faces are blissful, their thoughts appeear deep But it is no wonder, for they are asleep.

Apparently the organ was docked in Germany on its way from Padua to South Florida for a period and picked up a group of these beetles wanting to head toward the warmer climes. So . . . the organ ended up with an infestation of these little guys. The organ was tented (just like in the t.v. commercials) and fumigated (sp?). It worked. There have been no problems since then. And the inside of the case is beautiful and nicely finished, too!   Yours,   Darryl by the Sea         At 08:32 PM 11/16/99 -0500, you wrote: >Friends: As I sat in the car repair shop for 5 hours today, this >question popped into my head for no apparent reason.
