  • Lowrey Millennium Special Edition volume control issue.

    First let me say that I am less than a novice with an organ. My church bought a used Lowrey Millennium about 10 years ago and we had a young lady who could play it. She left the church about 3 years ago and we either never got any information or it left with her. We now have an excellent PIANO player (she teaches and enjoys playing) who is willing to try to play the organ but she (and I) don't know what all the controls do. The former organist was able to voice the organ to sound like bagpipes and I was trying to figure out how she did that and I managed to turn the sound down to a very low setting and I can't turn it back up. 3 things I would like to know: First, and most importantly, I am soliciting suggestions to return the volume to normal, second, I would like to get a user's manual for the Millennium, and third, and least importantly, I'd like to know how to make this organ sound like bagpipes. If you've read this far now is the time to roll your eyes, groan, and, maybe, have mercy on a foolish person who promises to be much more careful in the future. Thanks for any consideration, Bud McGregor

    The graphic mixer on the left wing of the control panel has a master volume control. Try pressing the "up" button to increase the volume.
    Also check that the expression (volume) pedal changes the volume when moved.
    The bagpipes are probably in the "Genius" section. The panel to the right of the LCD will have a "Lower Genius" IIRC.
    Once the Genius button is pressed you should be able to scroll through the voice list on the LCD using the up and down buttons.

      Thank you so much for the quick response. The expression pedal doesn't change the volume. I fear that I may have somehow damaged that control. I saw the master volume control on the left wing and I will check it but I believe that it's turned up to 7 or 8 out of 10. I will probably not try any further to find the bagpipes. Once bitten, you know.

        I was wrong: the expression pedal does vary the volume but, at its loudest, it is still very soft and, at the lowest setting, almost inaudible. Also, there is no master volume control on the left wing. See attached images. I have additional images of the rest of the controls but, unless you want to see them, I will save the bandwidth. BTW, I did find the setting for bagpipes :-) Thanks!

          All the volume controls on the left wing were set between 4 and 9 on scales of 1 to 10.

            On the "Info Center" button pad, press 9 plus "Enter." Message should indicate "Master Volume." Press 1+0+0+ Enter. That will give maximum volume.

              Thank you!
              I had to select the "EASY" function before the 9 button brought up "Master Volume" but I was able to correct my mistake.
              Your kind and generous help was immensely appreciated and will be gratefully remembered.

                I was able to contact Kent Smith at Kawai America ([email protected]) and he sent to me a users manual for the Lowrey Millennium. I was not given a URL but I can send it as an attachment to an email address if it will accept a 1.5 meg attachment.
                Again, thanks for all your help.
