Next generation stop combination systems
2002 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
A new system concept is described for storing and retrieving stop combinations in mechanically controlled pipe organs. The system combines many features found in currently used systems, but have, so far, not been combined in one single system. Characterized features are: Both "generals" and "divisionals", as found in many anglican organs, as well as a list of consecutive com-bination steps, common in continental systems; Micro-tonal registrations with precision better than 2% of the stop piston range, if the mechanical system can compete; Time-dependent activation of specified combinations; Individual PIN-code and password for a personal set of combination lists; An aesthetically appealing design which fits both in new and in historical organs. We also describe a novel method to easily insert practically an unlimited number of extra combination steps between two already defined steps.
