Now, one could have had a rail with "Harley Davidson 32" "Vincent 16" "Honda 1 3/5th" and so on. What a missed opportunity. I fear that the motorcycles suffered more than the organ.   As the Germans say, Warum?

Depending on your computer and internet connection, it may take a few = minutes to get the complete file - it will almost look like your computer is frozen-up. It took my dinosaur computer about 5 minutes to get the whole = file. WARNING: Do NOT blame me if you never quite get as far as the "Gloria" = because you've seen too many other titles which look interesting.   Have fun,   Richard

Contrary to popular rumors, the organ is in pretty = good shape. It needs to be re-leathered and pipes regulated but other than = that, it's working rather well.   Kyle B. Irwin

The layout was rather ingenious. Being a moveable organ it had a rather interesting history about where it's been. I won't go into that in hopes others will in the know will fill in the blanks. It's been quite a while since I heard some of the stories. This might make an interesting thread.   Ron Severin

I remember feeling especially jealous of all the girls who would bring in their colored felt-tip markers, and they never would share!   Nate "The Apprentice" wrote: > Ouch!

(C: David responds: Nothing like kicking it up a notch, to quote a famous TV chef! Another popular analogy is watching a young boy, usually around 9 or 10, walk into a convenience store, grab a cup, and proceed to fill it with a bit of every soda available on the fountain. I believe the term for such a concoction is a 'suicide'!   To bring this back on topic: I play in a relatively small chapel (LDS term for a sanctuary), and am not able to use "full organ" on the small A*l*n that I play, so my congregation doesn't need to worry about my drowning them out. The 2-foot registers (both principal and flute) are very shrill, and I don't use them often. I'm also afflicted with the same flute chorus on both manuals. On some A*l*n models with identical choruses on both manuals, if you draw the chorus on one manual, and then couple the second chorus to the first, you can hear the added stops. On my model, you can't hear the addition. I also have a very wimpy crescendo pedal, doesn't add very much at all to the sound.   David Carter In Sacramento CA, where we may put another actor in the governor's office.   P.S. My organ has midi in-out-through jacks on it. Can someone direct me to a resource on midi, so that I might be able to find out what to buy so that I can add additional stops to the specification?   thanks!!!   __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
