This evening I had an unfortunate accident with the original Makin which is at the core of the Hammerwood instrument from Londonderry Cathedral. I was about to voice some pedal notes, plugged in the voicing cable, slipped and pulled the cable and ever since the Swell and Pedal departments have departed. Stops, pedals and manuals continue to provide midi output.
Jeremy Filsell is due to be coming first thing on Sunday morning to start preparing for the 4pm concert.
Can anyone with Hauptwerk save the day or does anyone have the phone number of David Fetterman or anyone else at Makins?
In view of the recent demonstration of Hauptwerk at Bristol, it might be possible to interface Hauptwerk or seamlessly as a stopgap to provide for the recital.
We need a dry sampleset providing
Voix Celeste 8
Geigen Diap 8
Echo Gamba 8
Lieblich Gedekt 8
Stopped Flute 4
Contra Fagotto 16
Open Wood 16
Bass Flute 8
Choral Bass 4
If anyone can help it will give a great deal of happiness to audience, performer and avoid a very red face on my behalf. If not, however, there is still a very significant part of the instrument very much in action but it will require great organistic gymnastics on Jeremy's behalf to overcome. It would also be a great feather in the cap for Hauptwerk.
