  • Allen Heritage Organ - Manual for presets and Midi Functions plus a question on voicing



    Question 1: Short of contacting a dealer, does anyone know where you can pick up a manual that covers reprogramming presets (locking/unlocking)and using the MIDI functions?</P>


    Question 2: Has anyone ever had to have an electronic organ revoiced? I've run across an organ that a former "clergy" had revoiced several years ago because of congregation complaints on loudness, and did not have an organist present with the technician. In my opinion it has taken away quite a lot of variation and dynamic range.....</P>


    Anyone care to comment......! Want to provide a shoulder for me to cry on.......</P>

    Lady - the answer to your first question lies in your first question. Bite the bullet and contact the dealer. At worst it might cost you or the church a couple hours the price of the technicians time. You might get lucky and if the problem is something the dealer can readily touch it might not cost anything. The dealer might be as anxious as you to get the organ sounding right if he has been told by other folks it doesn't sound right. As for buying a service manual if the organ is still under warranty the factory is probably not going to be cooperative and will refer you to the dealer or technician for your area anyway. The factory is justifiably concerned that someone who doesn't know what they are doing is going to mess up the voicing and adjustments and make matters worse than they are already. </P>


    From my limited experience with older series Allens (MDS) they don't take kindly to turning down the master volume settings. Lowering the settings by even one or two numbers can make a considerable difference in the way the amplifiers respond especially in the pedal range. Don S.</P>
