(back) Subject: My private popularity !!! From: <Innkawgneeto@webtv.net> Date: Sat, 18 Nov 2000 18:48:38 -0500 (EST)   I'm overwhelmed at my popularity on this list, albeit supposed to be private. LOL. Bruce and Bob are duly forgiven.   I made a recording of my playing today on our Schantz II/24 and I was quite pleased with how the organ sounded ON TAPE. I'm not speaking of my playing, just the fact of being able to hear the organ through the ears of a microphone.   I have obviously toned down my penchant for upperwork, because my playing didn't seem to scream in 2 and 1 foot levels as it did previously. In an otherwise wonderful instrument, my only complaint is that the pedal principal still doesn't have as strong a presence as I would like. Can that be adjusted, I wonder?   It's quite a revealing experience. I would recommend you all do that in your own situations from time to time.   Neil

The solution is found in Psalms....   "Open the gates" !   There is a gate/valve at the toe of each large pipe, usually 1-12, maybe = to 16, which can be opened to add more wind and make the pipe louder. The problem is that when it is made louder, it also become more "quinty" or violonish. If the pipes are of small scale, you're probably better off = just suffering in silence. A bourdon is easier to louden. What I have done = in the past is to increase the volume of the Bourdon, which also has an advantage of more gates, and soften the principal, since I prefer a soft = open sound to a soft stopped sound. The louder bourdon will give you quite = a bit more bang for your buck than will the principal.   Bruce, still in the Beagles Nest with the Baskerbeagles... visit us: Ourworld.cs.com/Brucon502 (aroooooooooO) but working from another computer since mine is in a REALLLY REALLLLY BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD MOOOD!!!
