Several of the audience walked out of that recital I mentioned, and there were only about 25 of us left at the end.   >I guess everyone has a chance to change, and I >suppose also, everyone listens differently.   Let's hope she has changed. It sounds as if she has changed and if that's so, apologies from me are now due.   The organ sounds better from the body of the church than it does from the west gallery. That's why my comment about furniture was made - the = acoustics helped the instrument considerably. Going through the ranks one by one, = and listening carefully to the pipe speech, I (with others listening in) was amazed at the poor regulation and slow speech of many ranks, much as I = would expect an early 20thC organ, never touched since built, to sound now. = Maybe there's been work done on the pipes, since. Down in the nave for a = recital, many individual pipe nastinesses, though, simply aren't heard. (I'm not impugning your ears here, believe me).   >I have been trying to work out the relevance of the following to the >discussion: "The church is largely devoid furniture and has a very tiny >congregation."

How >lovely and full of charity!   I am usually most gentle, but I must confess that was the worst organ I heard in Britain. The 2nd-worse was a grossly loud and coarse 3m Willis in = a small church in Cambridge. The contrast of those with heaps of wonderful instruments......   Ross

New York City has some amazing pipe organs in its collection, from unaltered mid-19th century ones, to those in the Metropolitan Museum, to churches, synagogues, and a few auditoria scattered about. As with any municipality, not all instruments are worth seeing. Others are thrilling. An organ curator will give you a different perspective on the = instrument than the organist, but you should be able to make visiting arrangements = with either one, depending upon your bent. Musicians and builders are busy, = but usually they really DO want to have visitors, to have people see and hear = the instruments, if they are truly proud of the organ in question. We are a city of eight million people, roughly two million of whom = seem to own organ companies.

(back) Subject: Puzzle question about an old LP From: "Andr=E9s G=FCnther" <agun@telcel.net.ve> Date: Sat, 8 Feb 2003 19:38:22 -0400   Andres Gunther agun@telcel.net.ve   Hi all-   This is really a "prize" question for melomanes and collectors, and = perhaps I never will get an answer for it. But anyway there it goes:   I have an old LP in high esteem- Thomaskantor Gunther Ramin playing Max Reger's BACH Fantaisie and Fugue op 46 and the Introduction and = Passacaglia in d minor (no opus) on the Beckerath organ.   Question is: **Which** Beckerath organ?- there are hundreds!   LP dates: 33 RPM Deutsche Grammophon Gesellschaft LP 16089 HIFI - printed = in Germany 1/57 [record date perhaps?]   On the cover photo, professor Ramin is seen as old man. The organ must be = a "Symphonic Mastodon", perhaps early 20th cty- the ideal instrument for = these works, and Ramin's performance is the best one I have (I have four more). For this I would be interested in more info- the record cover only shows = an analysis of the works.   Any traces, hints etc are welcome- thanks in advance.   Yours Andres =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=   First was the cat, then was the Orgler.

(back) Subject: Old LP care (was Sigh) From: "Andr=E9s G=FCnther" <agun@telcel.net.ve> Date: Sat, 8 Feb 2003 19:51:08 -0400   Andres Gunther agun@telcel.net.ve   When I saw the "sigh" thread about LPs I was reminded to earlier (and happier) times. Following hints were taken from an article when LP-mania was at its = apogee. I used them on my LP collection and never regretted it.   1) LP wash This is highly reccomended for old LPs with lots of dust or fingerprints = on them, LPs that had been stored for a long time, and for "noisy" LPs- many pops and spackles can be caused by microscopic dust particles that are embedded in the grooves. Lp's can be washed like dishes- only with a few special cares. You need:   * A bowl that is big enough to put a LP in. * 1 or 2 gallons of destilled or deminaralized water . * A liquid dishwashing soap that **doesn't** have "skin caring" additives. * A clean, soft sponge.   The LP is washed exactly like a plate, but don't exaggerate the amount of dish soap- a drop or two will be enough for a half gallon approx. Wipe *only* following the groove direction, never across it. For rebel grease spots use a drop of isopropyl alcohol. Rinse and let dry well. I was astounded about the results when I played back my oldies after a = wash!   2) "Wet" playback method Was reccomended to improve HIFI playback and elliminate noise. = Nevertheless the pros and contras I used this playback method on old records that remained noisy even after a wash procedure, and to record music from LP to casette. I guess it will help to "digital master" your old LPs too and = save you time making corrections. You need a special arm for wet playback- I never had one, and applied the liquid with a swab. The liquid is composed by 50% destilled or demineralized water and 50% isopropyl alcohol. Mix it in a clean, grease free glass or plastic container. Be sure to dry the record before you turn it over or put it back in the cover.   For all LP friends: enjoy! Cheers Andres =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D First was the cat, then was the Orgler.

(back) Subject: RE: Copying LPs to CD/Rs From: "Bill Sebring" <baircub@austin.rr.com> Date: Sat, 8 Feb 2003 17:44:27 -0600   If anyone needs any specifics on the best software, or hardware needed, Please feel free to email me directly at "baircub@austin.rr.com", since my partner and I do this kind of thing frequently and have been able to save LP's, cassettes, VCR tapes, etc, onto CDRW, and DVD quality media. Any effort is worth it to save music onto a more permanent form, so that it isn't lost for good. :-{)}   Thanks for your time,   Bill Sebring   -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org]On Behalf Of Bob Conway Sent: Saturday, February 08, 2003 12:37 PM To: PipeChat Subject: Copying LPs to CD/Rs     Paul,   I have just read Mack's post, - it was Mack that got me on to being able = to copy LPs to CDs, his advice is very pertinent!   It is quite easy, - but you have to have both the hardware and the = software to do it.   Firstly your turntable must be plugged into the Line Input on your computer. If you do not have a Line Input, then it will not work. If = your turntable does not have a pre-amp, you will have to buy one, for the = output from the turntable might be too low level to work for your computer. The turntable that I use is an Optimus Lab 1100 that I bought from Radio Shack. It has a built in pre-amp, and is sold specially for the purpose = of making CDs from LPs using a computer.   You must have a Soundcard in your computer, and it does not have to be the best one on the market, the one I have is a SoundBlaster Live, which came with the computer. This has a Line Input.   You need to have a CD-Writer drive in your computer, again, you do not = need one that is the top of the line, I have a HP CD-Writer 9300, which comes with all the basic necessary software.   I also have the DART (Digital Audio Restoration Technology) Version 4, - although I think that this has been upgraded since I bought it, - but the version I have does all I want it to do.   Perhaps the most often used feature of the DART software is the "De-Clicking" and the "De-Hissing" for removing unwanted clicks and hiss from the LP input signal.   When you first attempt to use the software, it might seem a bit of a bother, but it doesn't take long to get over the initial use, and from = then on it becomes very easy to use.   If you have all the above, then you will be able to record your LPs. if you have any more questions do not fail to ask.   Good luck,   Bob Conway     "Pipe Up and Be Heard!"

The turntable plugs directly into the iMic with OR WITHOUT a preamp. Griffin's recording program, Final Vinyl, includes both a 40 db gain AND absolutely essential RIAA equalization normally provided by a phono preamp.
