:-) I have deliberately avoided mentioning the location as I have no wish to be insulting to anyone, and use the instance here in a generality of how to, or how not to, go about things.
But whilst pipe organs are pipe organs and even a good 8 rank pipe instrument in the right hands can still pull surprises in tonality, if an electronic is installed for the purpose of inspiring interest in the repertoire beyond the capabilities of a modest pipe organ, it must be really fulfilling in succeeding in its inspirational objective. To fail in that merely turns people against the organ as an instrument in general especially where a large console is seen that can imply that the instrument behind the console is the best there is . . .
The technology concerned happens not to be Hauptwerk, but I'm looking forward to hearing a computerised instrument that really can do the job.
As a matter of interest two members of the EOCS are working on digital technology based on hardware without needing hard discs or operating systems. The good thing about amateurs within a society working on a problem is that they draw often on wider experience - and at least one of the members is an organist and knows what he is designing towards . . .
In contrast, the instrument which I experienced yesterday has at least 4 swell pedals for various departments. From memory "Great" is under expression and is on the same pedal as "Choir" and the pedal department also is under expression, on the same pedal as the Swell. One really wonders who came up with that arrangement!
