The = best model for expansion is the ranks Wurlitzer installed to create their = larger two-manual instruments. In my view, the best two-manual Wurlitzer was the Style 216 (unfortunately rare when new, and now not to be found in = original form), so following that scheme is a good idea.   So if you have the original ranks, you have:   Trumpet 8' Open Diapason 16' Tibia Clausa 8' Salicional 8' Concert Flute 16' Vox Humana 8'   To these I would add (in order):   Voix (Salicional) Celeste 8' (usually a TC set, but try to get the bottom 12) Clarinet 8' Orchestral Oboe or Krumet 8' Brass Trumpet or Post Horn (the latter Wurlitzer or EXACT copy, on 10" = wind) Saxophone or Oboe Horn 8' Horn Diapason 8'   This will result in a very complete and versatile 12 sets. If, that is, = they are reasonably well unified and carefully regulated. For a more useable instrument, be sure to keep the existing Flute unification on the Solo = while adding Tibia unification (should be 16', 8' 4', 2 2/3' and 2'). The Tibia mutations should be used sparingly; most combinations (especially in a = small studio environment) sound better with Flute mutations.   You will also want to add 16' extensions, e.g..: Trumpet, Salicional and Tibia (in that order). And try to find a Marimba as well.   The key point is regulation! The small Post Horn does not overpower the = rest of the organ; neither does a good Brass Trumpet. Add only sets that match the originals in scale and wind pressure -- no 15' Tibia or Post Horn!

I guess what I mean is that it seems highly unlikely that a PC could get an improvised piece of music down precisely - especially when improvisations, however creative and artistic they may be, are fairly IMPRECISE! However, I was impressed with the Sibelius test software I got, and if I could get a start on paper to work with, then corrections and improvements could be made.   My feeling is that I improvise too much. In fact, if I am not playing baroque music or recital type stuff, and I want a contemporary chorale prelude, I do it myself (usually). I've found Charles Callahan's and some others such as Dale Wood to be attractive and playable with VERY little = prep time. But most of what I find in music stores that is easy usually seems banal to me. My long term goal would be to either make available through = a web page or publish a selection of easily preparable hymn tune preludes or organ meditations so that others could enjoy them, too. Since we all have individual styles, this would be great. Although I prefer pipes - some of the benefits of the digital age, such as having an instrument at home and being able to bring in the computer are going to make things interesting. And as soon as my instrument gets here I will now be able to practice for two hours at night, rather than watching TV (and since I am in an = apartment, I can use headphones!) Yeah!!

The Offertories, Elevations and Communions are the most useful.   By all means go for getting your own stuff down on paper ... I'm = attempting the same thing.
