Using the jOrgan Recorder’s Playback Feature
You can have jOrgan re-play any of your older performances that are retained on your computer, by using the Recorder’s browsing capabilities in Figure 8.2 above. If you want these recordings to sound exactly as they did when you were playing them, make sure that you are displaying the same disposition as you were using at the time you made those recordings. Of course you may deliberately choose to have a particular recording played through dierent dispositions, just to see what it sounds like.
Also, if you want to try dierent registrations you are free to change all your console settings while your recorded piece is being replayed. jOrgan will incorporate those changes into your playback without changing the original le.
And, perhaps most usefully, you may treat jOrgan’s recorder-playback as a practice tool to play along with a previously recorded piece, changing voices and making other improvisations at your whim, or just taking advantage of letting jOrgan keep the time and the rhythm for you as you play variations on the melody!
