Step ree - Connect e Less Obvious Stop-Tabs and Buttons
For those switches for which it is less obvious how to make the connection in the File/Customize menu’s Customize Disposition window, we will use the “Construct Organ” mode. How do you know when to use which jOrgan tool to make a switch connection? In Step Two we saw several examples of “Straightforward Stop-Tabs and Buttons.” Now we need an example of the other kind, the not-so-straightforward or less obvious kind of switch.
One example of a “Less Obvious” switch is a typical jOrgan console’s “Flute” stop. Chances are that if your jOrgan has three keyboards, whether on a Classic or eatre console, it has a Flute stop. Chances are that this Flute stop appears as “Flute 8” on each of the three manuals. So, if you’re searching down the list of switches in the Customize Disposition window, you have two out of three chances of picking the wrong tab on your real console to match the name on your virtual jOrgan console.
In fact, as you may have noticed in Fig. 6.7, sometimes jOrgan switches and continuous elements don’t even have names! In such cases you need to use the Construct Organ mode. Luckily you can visually select the element you want when you’re using the “Construct Organ” mode. Here’s how to visually select an element—simply go into “Construct Organ” Mode (click on the Construct Organ icon) then scroll to the element you desire and click on it.
