Hard Copy of Registration

PostMon Jul 27, 2020 11:16 am

Good morning. I am wondering if I have a midi file, can I load that file into the appropriate organ, and get a print out of the registrations used with that piece of music just to keep as a hard copy should i mess up and lose the store sequences in the future?

In other words, I guess a printout of what is going on on the screen as the piece plays.

Any suggests would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Tom

Hello Tom,

Registration are embedded into the midi file. While it is possible to get a printout of a registration file (once loaded in Hauptwerk go to Registrations \Export/View...) a MIDI file will send the needed MIDI messages as CC (control change) during the playback.

Here is the MIDI messages transmitted when pressing the Great piston #3 on St-Anne (with its default registration file loaded)

Principal 4 - Open Diapason 8 small - Swell to Great - Swell octave to Great


So not really easy to understand :wink:
Best regards

For your purposes would a screen shot of what's going on on the screen prove useful? I use this method once in awhile to save a copy of certain registrations of a given organ (in case I lose it) by hitting the 'print screen' button on my computer key board of the screen I want to save. Then if you have the 'Paint' program as an example installed on your computer, just open it and simply hold the control and V keys at the same time to place the screen shot you just saved into Paint. You can then either print out what you have, or save the screen shot in a folder on your computer for future reference if needed.

I have tried that, but it really eats up the old ink cartridges!!!! Guess the old pen and ink is the best method if you are frugal at least.

Try making a Monochrome B/W version of the stop jambs or tab fields.
Then print out the paper and mark it with a highlighter pen or marker to indicate the active stops in a registration.

One page = one registration, piston or toe stud. Then you can write all the information on the back. Requires a set for each sample set.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Of course you can just save the Print Screen pages for reference without actually printing (all of) them.

Tom,

If you have the console view on your screen while you are playing back a recording I believe there is software that would allow you to take a screenshot each time the registration changes. It is a bit of a kludge, but probably easier than trying to decode MIDI messages.
