    It's a C-440. Budget model, it has 2 channels. That's it. (unless I'm missing something huge, but I doubt it)

        I'm a huge fan of the 32'Contre Bass and the 32'Unterstatz. Both reverberate wonderfully in our church. Over all I like every stop because each is unique for different reasons!

          I especially like the sound of a labrador breaking wind in a good resonant building with about 12 seconds of echo. It reminds me of a french bombarde played staccato.

              No doubt you find the odor pleasing too.
              Ok, since big pipes are desireable, which organs have a 64 foot stop?
              Not a resultant but actual 64 foot pipes. Could any one record it?

                > which organs have a 64 foot stop?

                From www.organstops.org : N.B. There are exactly two true 64' stops in existence. One is the Diaphone Profundo at Atlantic City; the other is a Contra Trombone at the Sydney Town Hall.

                > Could any one record it?

                Should be no problem. Microphones and recorders do go down to those frequencies. But finding a pair of speakers might be another problem. That and your actual ears...

                  There is a recording of the one at Sydney Town Hall on organsandorganistsonline.com, somewhere

                    Are there any speakers that will go that low? I think that's around 8 Hz. Can you imagine the task of tuning that? I guess you feel rather than hear it. Now, imagine a resultant 128 foot stop. Out here that's called "earthquake". Wow!

                      I was recording a few songs on a theatre organ not too many years ago, and the tremulant is was you can really see. Those woofers were exerting so badly at the studio, it took us about half an hour to figure what was going on.

                      As for favorite stops, I was always a fan of the Flutes with tremolo. Mainly the concert Flutes, and Flute Celeste.
                      But I also love a nice broad Toy Counter!

                        A large Flute Harmonique 8 accompanied by String Celestes and a Vox Humana (especially if it's a Skinner organ)
                        A good solo Trumpet (either En Chamade or hooded)
                        32' Contre Bombarde
                        32' Open Wood
