8. jOrgan Computer as a MIDI-Based Sound Studio

(A jOrgan implementation as a MIDI component of a full-complement recording studio is the subject of Chapter 8, “jOrgan Computer as a MIDI-Based Sound Studio.”) (to be completed)

Using jOrgan’s Recorder Element to Make a Recording As of version 3.8.2 jOrgan’s elements include a robust and eminently usable recording capability. As described

in the ocial jOrgan wiki, this capability is implemented through four new elements in the complement of disposition resources:

  • recorder

  • record

  • stop

  • play

Once your disposition has been set up with the new recorder elements and a midi le to record into, you have everything you need to record your jOrgan performance, stop recording and play back what you have recorded.

As you might already have guessed, jOrgan allows you to accompany your recording of yourself while you listen to the playback!

Adding recording elements to your disposition—First, in construct mode, add the recorder element and check to make sure that jOrgan’s “add-new-element” sequence walks you through references to your console and all keyboards as well as from your console. Assign your new recorder element the same type of skin cover as with your memory element (see chapter 11’s “Working with Memory Levels” section). Next select “Recorder Record”, “Recorder Stop” and “Recorder Play” elements, making sure they have references from your console. Select appropriate skins for them. I use piston buttons that display the words “Rec”, “Stop” and “Play” respectively.

Creating a MIDI le for recording—jOrgan’s record capability requires a dedicated midi le which is created by the user. John Reimer has generously provided a procedure that will take the beginner through the process of creating and using a recorder le:
