  • questions about the parts of the console

    Hi all,</p>

    I'm new here and I don't know a whole lot about organs other than 1) I love the sound, 2) I'm fascinated by all the keyboards and pully-outy bits and the pedals. I've been poking around the net looking for information on what all the various parts of the organ console are, but haven't had a lot of success. Can you help me?</p>

     I'm looking to find out:</p>

    1) What each keyboard controls.</p>

    2) What the knobs off to the sides of the keyboards do.</p>

    3) what the buttons below each keyboard and above the pedals do.</p>

    4) What all the various parts are called so I can stop sounding like an idiot and use less vague descriptions.</p>

     Why am I bothering you with this silly request? Because, as a modular synthesizer fanatic, I couldn't leave well enough alone with just building a whole bunch of modules and sticking them in racks and hooking them up to MIDI keyboards. No, I decided that I needed to make the whole ordeal look, and possibly function, like a pipe organ console. Yup, I'm crazy. Yes, I know it's going to take a few years to complete. Yes, I know it's going to consume what little time I have for a social life. But I'm good with that. It's going to be awesome when it's done.</p>

    *gets down off soap box*</p>

    Thank you all,</p>
