(back) Subject: Organ Midi Files From: <MickBerg@aol.com> Date: Thu, 7 Sep 2000 01:51:35 EDT   Hello everyone. It seems that I was wrong when I said you could only use an organ = soundfont to play MIDI files on a PC with APS software. On the SBLive, as well, it = is completely possible to replace the Synth bank (bank 0) with a Soundfont = bank that can be anything you like, including Jeux or Pfeifenorgel. It works = best if you create a new Soundfont bank, where the stops roughly match the instruments in the General Midi bank, e.g 8ft Principals for piano, = Strings for strings, reeds for brass, 16' pitch for bass, etc. The resulting = rather bad "transcriptions" are very amusing!   Mick Berg.

Was a pretty good sounding organ in '58, and ol' Lenny was pretty entertaining in his own way!   DeserTBoB

From: <MickBerg@aol.com> Date: Thu, 7 Sep 2000 18:46:16 EDT   Hmmm, it seems I can't send my instructions as an attachment in Pipechat = or EOrg.I will either put it up on my pseudo-web page, if I can, or I will = send it to those individuals who request it. Mick Berg.  
(back) Subject: Server Problem From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Thu, 7 Sep 2000 18:00:10 -0500   Just to let all of you know, there was a problem with the server sometime late last night that didn't get fixed until about mid-day today. Sorry for the inconvenience. We have been working hard to try and keep the lists going during this transition period.   Tomorrow my new DSL line is supposed to be installed here in Little Rock and early next week, once all the routing tables are changed, the servers will be operating from my home here where I can watch them much closer than I can currently.   David **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org

If someone wants Mick's file then you should write him PRIVATELY to have him send it to you.   David   **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org  
(back) Subject: "Such a Deal" in Rochester! Charlie Balogh opens RTOS Season on Sept.16 (x-posted) From: "Ken Evans" <kevans1@rochester.rr.com> Date: Thu, 7 Sep 2000 21:00:40 -0400   You are invited to be our guests (FREE) when we open our 2000/2001 season = of nine concerts at the Auditorium Center, 875 East Main Street, Rochester, = NY 14605. The latest ATOS "Organist of the Year," Charlie Balogh, will = preside at the console of the RTOS 4/22 Wurlitzer for this entertaining event = which starts at 8 p.m. on Saturday, September 16th.   The driving directions from the east, west and south directions (Lake Ontario is to Rochester's north) plus the rest of the season's schedule, pictures of the installation, chamber layouts and stoplist plus membership information may be found at our home on the web at http://theatreorgans.com/rochestr/ .   Why do we offer a free concert to start our season. Our experience has shown that once newcomers hear a concert, many of them will join RTOS as members and remain as members for many years. Also we are fulfilling our charter as an educational organization by introducing theater organ to members of the public that otherwise would not be reached.   All we ask is that you fill out a coupon at the door or fill out the admission form available on our website. Please be our guests on Sept. 16 and you'll be glad you came.   BTW, the flood damage to the Main Chamber that occurred during a = torrential rain (with the help of a plugged roof drain) on June 13 has been repaired due to the extraordinary efforts and devotion of our 4/22 maintenance = crew. The organ is back and ready for this concert. We hope that you ready too!   Regards, Ken Evans, President
