Electronic Organs / Re: Hauptwerk - GrandOrgue or jOrgan? differences
« on: December 31, 2019, 08:33:13 PM »
Hi,
well JOrgan uses java, and Grand Orgue can work with LInux, Windows or OSX. Grand Orgue is about a 600mb download. I think JOrgan is smaller.
some combinations of programs and computers work well, others don't. So unfortunately there is a learning curve involved with any new software.
I think Grand Orgue may be able to use Hauptw*rk Sample sets, Jorgan uses I think sound fonts.
AS it is that time of Year. Good wishes to everyone for the New Year !

Electronic Organs / Re: Help needed with Hauptwerk setup with SSD
« on: December 17, 2019, 07:47:34 PM »
Hi,
you ask a good question or two ! In general you may not be able to just copy the files over from the old hard disk to the new hard disk. ( if you are talking about the operating system files and main program files ). You might be able to do this with something such as Norton Ghost.
I don't know if you can just copy the sample sets from one hard disk to another ? Or if they have to be installed again ?

Hi,
having heard one of these expanders in person,at one of the Eocs meetings, they seem a very useful unit.
For anyone wanting to know more about their possibilities the user manual, other guides (and software) can be downloaded from
http://www.organworks.com/index.php/products/sound-generation-systems?set_article=viscount-cm-100

note I have no connection with the above company.

Hi,
 that is most impressive ! There can't be may ways to know what was being played in the 18th Century, but this seems to be one of them !

Hopefully other people here can post as their time allows.

Hi,
when it is not such a busy time of year might you be able to post a couple of short you tube clips to give everyone an idea of the different stops ?

Organs wanted / Re: Non-midi 13-note pedalboard Urgently wanted
« on: February 01, 2017, 08:44:43 PM »
HI,
a longer term solution might be to try to fit magnets and reed switches to the existing pedalboard.
certainly I would hope these would last longer than some mechanical switches.

HI,
this cold weather has given me several colds etc so I haven't been online much at all .....
But with the warmer spring weather arriving sometime I hope to be more active....
hopefully it isn't slow death, just hibernation !

Electronic Organs / Re: Value of pre-1961 Hammond RT3 + Leslie 122R
« on: October 10, 2016, 08:46:47 PM »
HI,
well I may be wrong, but one problem of trying to emulate the Leslie Cabinet is that the sound is bounced off the room surfaces outside the cabinet...   so to emulate it properly I think you would need more than two speakers.
I think that some of the Hammond Organ clones can get quite close to the sound, and can be useful if you don't want, or are not able to move a full size Hammond about.

Electronic Organs / Re: Wanted - any Johannus control board with 88C25 chips
« on: September 27, 2016, 09:44:36 AM »
Hi,
after looking up the part number would it be a delay circuit with voltage detector ?
or have I got the wrong IC ?
Is the eeprom used to save/ restore the stop settings ? if so then it is possible that it could have failed ?
or does it have a unique program in it as well ?

Organ building and maintenance / Re: Johannus Opus 230
« on: May 01, 2016, 12:43:57 PM »
Hi,
 I think the Johannus you mention may used a TMS keying Ic to generate the different footages. there may be one per octave, so it could be the circuitry around the ic that might be faulty. [ or possibly the ic itself ].
the cipher may be a bit more complex to find, it is possible that some of the stops an non 16 / 8 / 4 / 2 footages may use a different keying ic [ but still use a TMS keying ic. ].

Electronic Organs / Re: Ahlborn H5 voice issue
« on: April 07, 2016, 11:00:27 AM »
Hi,
I'm guessing that maybe one of the chips associated with the troublesome voice channels may have failed, or partly failed. If the chips are in sockets than changing them should be easy, otherwise you do need to be careful about changing them ....
If the backup battery batteries are nicad then they are known for leaking in a wide range of Musical equipment.
I have seen a mod done to replace the battery, and then connect the battery using flexible wires to keep it away from the circuit board and then have it placed in a plastic bag, so if it does leak it doesn't damage the circuit board.
It would be worth inspecting around any batteries and seeing if you can see any signs of corrosion

Electronic Organs / Re: Help with faulty Johannus
« on: May 08, 2015, 01:00:57 PM »
Hi,
as the Organ has a midi output then it would be possible to connect it to another midi device and see if the midi continues when the sounds cut out.
if it does than the fault could be with the amplifier or sound generation circuits.
If there is a fault with the power supply that could stop either part or the whole Organ working.
I guess it depends how familiar you are with electronics as to how easy a fault it might be.

Hi,
 well I think as the two previous posters have said, there is a lot of difference between forums like this one and facebook. I tend to access web pages from my desktop computer, so I can't comment on how this site would work on a mobile phone.
I guess that for some people, the novelty of the internet may be wearing off !

Electronic Organs / Re: Tuning Johannus Opus 230
« on: March 14, 2015, 10:18:12 PM »
Hi,
 I will check, I think I have some info here somewhere.
Is it the tuning of the whole Organ that is out ? or just some octaves ?
From what I can remember there may be adjustments for each manual so you would need to be careful which adjustment you move. They may use inductors with adjustable cores to adjust the tuning. If so these need to be adjusted very carefully as it you use the wrong tool you can end up breaking the adjustable core.
I'm not sure if they were designed to be A = 440 hz   ?

regards Peter B
