(back) Subject: CD recorders From: "Margo Dillard" <dillardm@airmail.net> Date: Thu, 24 Aug 2000 11:04:12 -0500   I have a question for the wisdom of the list. I want to purchase a CD recorder - but I don't want to spend a fortune. It only has to record audio CDs that can be played in any old audio CD player. It would be used to make CD copies of cassette recordings made on the church system of choir programs and organ concerts (there's the on-topic part) at the church for shut-ins and our own personal memories - and to copy some old 78s that I have so that they can be enjoyed without risking the originals. Something that works like we have used cassette decks for years. (It would be nice if you could hook up to the amp at the church and record directly, but I'm told not). So....I've heard good and bad about various brands. Has anyone out there had experience using these in such a basic way - what is your opinion of the various types? Please reply privately so we won't take up the list's time with this pretty much off topic subject. Thanks!

I can't even read those anymore, even with glasses! W/S was a nice BIG score that filled the music rack and was easy on the eyes, and for that reason, I still have mine. I've always pretty much taken Schweitzer's remarks as being his emotionally driven opinions anway, rather than any rigorous scholastic or forensic study.   However, I've been looking at the new S=E4mtliche Orgelwerke editions from Musica Budapest. These don't have any "interpretive remarks", like W/S, but rather musicological notes of ratings of historical accuracy. Nice, clean scores, albeit a little cluttered. Anyone else have a look at these? I was thinking of "collecting the series", since my entire W/S comprises of "hand me downs" that are deteriorating rapidly.   DeserTBoB

(back) Subject: Organ pianos From: "Jason Comet" <diaphone64@hotmail.com> Date: Thu, 24 Aug 2000 16:33:33 EDT   This PianoDisk topic has got me thinking......(oh no!!! Jason's thinking again!!!)   Is there a system that can be installed onto acoustic pianos (similar to = the Piano Disk thingy) that can play the piano via MIDI?????   The church I play at has a choirloft on the front of the chancel. The = loft is quite small. In fact, we're in the process of updating the organ and rebuilding the choir risers so we can have a moveable console to allow a = few more singers into the loft. We have a Roland Digital Piano - piece of = junk in my opinion!! Right now, the piano is behind the organ console with the =   console built into the facade.   We have been wanting an acousitc piano for some time now, but we just = don't have the room.   I was thinking that if there was someway to hook an acoustic piano up to = the organ console and the digital piano at the same time, voila!! we have an acoustic piano playable from BOTH places!! Locate the acousitc piano in = the organ chamber (there is room) and hook it up via MIDI to the Organ console =   AND digital piano. That way, I can play the piano from the organ console PLUS tap into the MIDI sounds on the digital piano (I doubt I'll EVER do that!!) - then move the digital piano out of the choirloft and into the closet or hall behind the organ chamber. When needed, the digital piano = can be brought out into the loft and the acoustic can be played from the = digital for Organ/Piano duets and such. Then, when I take a Sunday off or something, then the choir director (who is scared to death of the organ console!) can play the organ from the digital piano and move the organ console out into a little room on the side or out of the way.   This way, we will lose the keyboard and gain more sitting space for the choir members. However, we won't gain THAT much considering the size of = the console with the Midmer-Losh 85 key manual built into the organ console = with the jambs on both sides. That gets pretty wide, but with SS products, the =   depth won't be so deep.   What do you think, and is there a system like that???? I know Baldwin = makes a "Concert Master" and Yamaha a "Disklavier", but I don't know if they can =   be played via other MIDI instruments or not.     Thanks, Jason Comet ________________________________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free E-mail from MSN Hotmail at http://www.hotmail.com

By the time I left = there, it sounded pretty good...for a Hammond, of course!   Most organists that hated Hammonds just didn't know how to play them, were usually electronically inept, nor were they wont to learn anything about them. One must remember that stars as big as Virgil Fox, George Wright, Jesse Crawford and others routinely played Hammonds. Fox even released an album on RCA made on an RT-2!

Be careful, some of the "inexpensive" CD recorders only use Audio CD's at three times the price of a "computer" CD, but cannot use computer CD's. Check this out before you buy one, you might get stuck by using the expensive CD's. Recordable CD's are incredibly cheap in price, are cheaper than tape ( 30 to 40 cents each !!!) and are CD quality. I use them to transcribe my huge LP collection to CD's. I make back up CD's for use in my car and am not too concerned if they get damaged.   I have compared playback of a cheap CD to that of an Audio CD and I can't tell the difference, even after copying a CD ( for my own use, by the way). I have tried every brand that is on sale ( one time as low as 8 cents each) and have found no difference in audio quality. My CD recorder is an OTARI "Professional", that might make the difference, but I doubt it. My friend bought a "pro-sumer" CD recorder and we compared, no difference.   CD recorders are the best thing since sliced bread.       Antoni Scott
