I have a problem because I dont understand what he means when he said "The Attack, Pipe speech is influenced to some extent by how the key is depressed (...) Pressing the key down slowly (...) a swelling of the tone without much accent; a quick strike on theother hand produces quite a clear accent, because of an audible initial speech created by the intensification of certain overtones." (p. 23)   Is it related, for example, with the way for the which the labial pipes and the reed pipes "makes the start" of the sound?   If somebody can tell me something about this, I'll be happy.   Domitila         --- UOL, o melhor da Internet http://www.uol.com.br/

(p. 23)   The initial characteristic known as "chiff" in an organ pipe is caused by the pipe momentarily jumping to its octave before settling down on the fundamental pitch. It was popular to have chiffy pipes during the 1960's, but this has now very much gone out of fashion.   I think Mr. Laukvik is a little confused in what he says. One difference that you can hear playing notes is the difference between notes which are played detached and staccato versus notes that a played in a smooth legato. With staccato playing the chiff is less covered up by the sustained note, so that it becomes more readily audible. This has nothing to do with the extent to which the key is depressed or the rate of opening of the pallet, and is equally true of electric action organs as tracker ones.   On the other hand the way the pallet opens does have an effect on the way the pipes speak. When notes are played very rapidly so that the pallet does not have enough time to open properly, a gulping sound is apparent. This tends to be accentuated by valve bounce on some old direct electric actions. It is only when the pallet opens fully that the pipe speaks properly. Some organ actions are better than others from this point of view. The ideal is to have a mechanism where the pipes speak clearly however rapidly notes are played. At Quimby Pipe Organs we have recently been experimenting with this, and have had very good results using double stage primaries, such as one finds on Skinner organs before the 1930's. The new organ we built recently at William Jewell College is fitted with these and it makes a big difference to how well the pipework speaks in rapidly repeated notes.   John Speller
