  • Couplers????

    What would your coupler set up be on a large 4 manual...such as a skinner or early casavant?

        FrenchHorn8's list is exactly what you would find on a large Skinner - the unison couplers are grouped togetheron a Skinner.

          If we are talking about a LARGE organ, then where is the need for such an awesome array of couplers, more commonly associated with best utilizing meager resources of tiny unitized organs??

               Why not make the most of what you have?  Adding a few extra couplers is much cheaper than a few extra ranks.

                That's just the onset of old age. [:S] But it doesn't address the need for sub/superoctave intramanual couplers. Sort of reminds me of the Wayne Hare residence organ built by Phoenix, where the lower manual has no speaking voices of it's own. It's just used for coupling the other two manuals:

                'Course, with Phoenix, if you so wish, you can re-assign the Great, to the lowest manual for each specification.Greatergonomic idea for old folk.[:$]

                  I think you have it backwards. A heavily 'unitized' organ needs very few couplers, as everything already plays everywhere and at every pitch.

                    Valid point; nothwithstanding that regardless of the way a "stop"might belablelled, it still may be justa coupler ?? [:S].

                      Sort of...

                      A coupler is a coupler; a stop is a stop.

                      The benefit of a coupler is that it couples the entire division with a single movement.

                      In a heavily unified organ the coupler may have little effect (depending on the size of the instrument and the registration).
