6. Incorporating Stop Tabs, Pistons and Expression Pedals Into Your jOrgan
By now you have probably tired of using your mouse to select individual voice stops and to set combinations of stops. Most likely you rst tried saving time by generating lots of preset combinations. ere are plenty of presets to use since many jOrgan dispositions have 1,000 or so possible memory slots for presets!
Still, you probably concluded, there must be a better way. So, like me, you added a touch screen to your monitor to make it easier to nd and activate a particular voice’s stop tab or draw bar. Still, it wasn’t good enough. What you really wanted was a stop rail, just like on a real eatre Organ or Classical Organ.
So, now you’ve acquired some stop tabs, and you want to hook them to jOrgan so they will work just like on a real organ. For simplicity’s sake, let’s use a theatre organ, like my renovated Rodgers 340, Fig. 6.1, as an illustration (but we will try to keep the discussion to generic stop tabs and draw stops).
