(back) Subject: Tuning myths From: <KriderSM@aol.com> Date: Thu, 13 Apr 2000 09:11:04 EDT   In a similar type of experience, I service an organ in central Ohio. This church has the choir sitting behind the pulpit in a corner. The organ sits = on a shelf above and behind the choir. Some enterprising congregation member installed more than a half dozen high wattage spotlights aimed at the = choir and the organ. The swell organ sits in its box beside the exposed great = organ on this shelf. The only way to light this otherwise dark corner is to flip = on those $^%@#^@ spotlights. The church is seldom at standard Sunday = temperature when we arrive to service it. Is there little wonder the organist is never =   satisfied with our tuning work????   I just had to get that one off my chest, having just done another recall = on it!!!   Stan Krider     In a message dated 04/13/2000 5:01:39 AM Eastern Daylight Time, Alan B writes:   << The discussion about air temperature vs pipe temperature reminded me of = an interesting experience I had when I worked for a company in Washington = DC.

My first impression is that you could get away with inexpensive, = used machines, all you need is a processor, network card, sound card, hard = drive, and minimum ram in each machine. The sole purpose of the machine is to = drive the sound card, so you would not need a dedicated monitor, (although you = will want to be able to plug one in for set-up and diagnostic purposes), and depending upon the requirements of your sound card, may not need a = particularly high speed processor, either. And of course, when you find you want to add = a third channel (Antiphonal?) you just add a third client to the network.   > Thanks, > Mick Berg. > > "Pipe Up and Be Heard!" > PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics > HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org > List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org > Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org > Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org

Each installation is different and presents its own set of idiocyncrasies.

Compound stops and mutations are justly tuned, not to equal temperment. I've used high resolution freq counter/microphone arrangements in very extreme cases, but usually tune strictly by ear, counting beats (or lack of them, in the case of mutations and mixtures). Good tuning is part art, mostly science.   >When you see a compound stop of >several ranks is that OK or do you groan, "oh, no, I have to tune all of >those little things?!?!"<snip>   If they're out of tune, you do.

Otherwise I would expect the who thing would stay in tune for decades. That's why I am designing tuning gadgets that _stay in place_ over long time periods.   DG   ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

(back) Subject: Reminder about PipeChat IRC and... From: "David Scribner" <david@blackiris.com> Date: Thu, 13 Apr 2000 20:35:06 -0500   Folks   Since Bob Conway, our IRC "mom", is away on holiday over in England I just want to remind you that the PipeChat group meets on Monday and Friday nights for IRC "live" chat sessions beginning at 9 PM Eastern Time. Do join us and don't be afraid if you do join in - we won't bite! <G> It is usually quite a nice group of people that gather together.   For information about how to join in, please go to the PipeChat IRC Web Page http://www.pipechat.org/irc.html You can join in either by using a dedicated IRC client or by using a Java-enabled Web Browser - both methods of connecting are explained on the web site.   Also, for those of you that enjoy Theatre Organ Music, there is a wonderful program that comes out of Australia over the net on Friday nights. It is called "Theatre Organ Times" and can be listened to using RealPlayer. Many of us that do the Friday night IRC chats also listen at the same time and usually there are little bits of discussion on IRC about the program.   Below is a copy of the announcement sent to the Theatreorgans List by the shows hosts. it gives the specifics about the times and methods of connection. Do try it out - I think you will enjoy it.   Hope to see some new faces "on-line" tomorrow evening.   Happy Chatting   David   **************************************************** Hello,   This week's program has Theatre Organ music from around the world of both vintage and current artists.   Please note:   Firstly, that "Theatre Organ Time" goes to air at the same time from Perth Western Australia all year round.

(back) Subject: Pipe Organ Encounters (X-posted) From: "John M. Doney" <jdoney@email.msn.com> Date: Thu, 13 Apr 2000 22:18:16 -0000   One of the most succesful programs the American Guild of Organists has = begun is the Pipe Organ Encounters. In June, there will be Pipe Organ Encounter 2000 held on Florida's West Coast. For young people it will be held June 11-15 and housed at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, and one for adults will be held June 12-16 and housed at University of Tampa.   These 5 day programs are designed mainly for those who are interested in = the organ but have not had any or much instruction. There will be individual lessons, chances to visit interesting area organs, visit a pipe organ = shop, enjoy a beach party, have pizza while listening to a Wurlitzer theater = pipe organ, etc. etc. Plus lots of fellowship with kindred souls.   We still have a few openings left for both young people and adults for dormitory space, and also a few spaces for students who would not need the housing. All of us who are working on this project are very enthusiastic and I would ask you if you know of anyone from your church, guild chapter, or friend who might enjoy experiencing this. It is very inexpensive so = that a church or chapter might be willing to pay to send someone - or we offer some scholarships as well.   If we can get more people interested in the organ, and give them some experience with it, these people may well be our substitutes or assistants in the future, or we may be sending someone who will become one of the = great organists of the future. Please help us get the message out.   For a brochure or application, feel free to contact me or Edith Hooten, chair of the committee. Thanks. John   JDoney@Email.msn.com   EHooten@juno.com
