In the File menu select “Customize.” en, for each of the three manuals, identify your input device—in this case jOrgan Keyboard with MIDI signals coming in on channel 1. For the unsplit manual, Recitativ/Echo, select “From” and “To” values of 0 and 127 respectively. In other words, your are telling jOrgan that your entire jOrgan Keyboard will generate MIDI signals for stops on the virtual organ’s Recitativ/Echo manual. Side note: if your input keyboard happened to be a real organ keyboard you could specify values of 36 and 97, which would also work and which would then be notationally consistent with your assignments for the other two manuals (see below). In either case you will still want to check, ranspose” value, because some MIDI keyboards start numbering notes with 0 Fig . 10 .2 - Stratman’s “Arlesheim” Being Customized For Split Manuals by listening, whether you need to adjust the “
(as mine do) regardless of the length of your keyboard.
Next, for the Recitativ/Echo Bass manual, which you intend to use only for lower pitched voices, select “From” and “To” values of 36 and 59 respectively, i.e. the octaves on an organ keyboard that are below middle C. en, for the Recitativ/Echo Treble manual, which you intend to use only for higher pitched voices select “From” and “To” values of 60 and 97 respectively, i.e. the octaves on an organ keyboard that are above middle C.
Now, click “Finish” to complete customizing the keyboards. Side note: of course your real keyboard set-up might include other keyboards that you do not intend to split, and you might be working with a disposition, like Paul s’ Arlesheim disposition, that has other manuals (such as Positi , Pedal, and Haupwerk) that you desire to assign to those keyboards. In that case you would proceed to use the jOrgan customizer in the usual way for those keyboard-manual pairings, before you were “Finished” with the customizer.
One more step before your split manuals are working: switch to jOrgan’s “construct” mode and verify that, for each of the above manuals (Recitativ/Echo, Recitativ/Echo Bass and Recitativ/Echo Treble) their “References To” stops are appropriately allocated. For example, any stop that is appropriate for the entire keyboard should be included in “References To” for the Recitativ/Echo’s keyboard, and any stop that is appropriate for the only the lower half of the keyboard should be included in “References To” for the Recitativ/Echo Bass’s keyboard, and likewise for Recitativ/
Echo Treble. Revised 6/30/2010
