  • question re a newer Johannus



    Hi, I live in the Netherlands where these Johannus organs are made. I asked them a question but did not receive a definitive answer.
    I recently played a few in Frankfurt at the trade fair (Frankfurt Music Messe) and came across an issue.

    My issue is this - I like using headphones and I noticed that when playing a chromatic scale the notes are sequentially hard left and then hard right. I'm sure in a 'real live' setting using speakers, the sound is much fuller but through headphones it drove me batty.

    I asked at their website about this and this was the answer I was given ...

    Thank for your Mail. I think what you want is possible.

    Each Voice has a C - C# division. That's the reason of your experience. With our Intonation program we can change that.

    With kind regards, Marco Bouw, Sales Manager Europe</p>

    Could someone here confirm this for me? Thanks in advance, Dave Horne - The Netherlands

    The INTONAT software provided with these organs allows very extensive voicing and adjusting. It is definitely possible to alter the way the stops are channelled. If you want to eliminate the C - C# ping-pong effect you can certainly do that.</P>


    As you said, in a normal listening environment it would be a good thing. It keeps a stop from seeming to come from a single point (speaker) and thus more interesting. But with headphones you might prefer a stable location for each stop!</P>

        John, once you change the setting to have a more natural stereo field for headphones use, can you easily switch back and forth to the 'default' setting for loud speakers? In other words, are there user profiles that can be easily selected?</p>

        Thanks, Dave

          Dave,</P>


          I haven't tried this, but I'm guessing you could use the "12-organs-in-one" feature to your advantage. Just set up one of the available intonations as a "headphone" setup with the stops channeled suitably for headphone use. Then set up the rest of them for speakers.</P>


          We've actually only solda handful ofJohannus organs in this area since the "12-in-1" feature came along, so I haven't experimented much with what you can do on these. But there are some pistons marked "solo" "hymn" and something else... anyway, these pistons take you into the various intonations that you can set up with the software. I assume one could set up the voice channelling differently for each intonation.</P>

            I'd recommend simply using some resistors to cross-mix some of the left &amp; right headphone signal. It'd give a softer blend. If that's still too separated for headphones, you could mix to mono; still, a separate reverb could provide some mixing.</P>


            I'm actually surprised they don't do some separate processing for headphones. I would think it important to do so to have any acceptable sound through headphones.</P>

              Thanks everyone for all the input! This purchase is still probably a few years in the future.</p>
