Saving a Silbermann Organ Preset with Couplers

Follow up to a great question that Rich asked the other day. Not 100% what he would like to do but something that isn’t obvious. Who is using the Silbermann organ? Would love to hear some recordings of it in action if anyone has anything they can share?

    Thanks Curt for the video.
    I discovered something when using the Silbermann and adjusting the sound control sliders for the selector. There are chorus slider controls available for the upper and lower selectors. I adjusted mine to 54 for both upper and lower manuals. It adds warmth and fullness to the pipe sounds which can be used for background church music. Many years ago (around 1970) I played an Allen church organ that had special speakers called Gyrophonic Projectors. The speaker cabinets were about 36 inches square with a 30 inch round wooden disk with 2 speakers mounted 180 degrees from each other. The disk was turned by a motor at slow speed thus spinning the speakers which gave a choral effect (Note: not a Leslie). Adding the chorus to the Silbermann gives the same sound effect and quality.

      Nice find Rich – I’ll have to give that a try.
