Pedal Divide

Postby mmayse » Thu Dec 22, 2016 7:32 pm

Has anyone used the CODM to create a Pedal Divide? Usually what that does is play the pedal stops on keys 1-12 and the couplers engaged on keys 13-32.

Is this possible? Thanks!

Hello Max,

You would probably need to create some extra 'internal' (non-displayed, not allowing direct MIDI input/output) divisions with the appropriate compasses, coupled to the displayed/playable divisions.
Best regards,

My reply seems to have been one of the messages that was lost during the forum's recent problems, so I'll repeat it for information. If you just want to use one of the manual divisions on the upper part of the pedalboard, this can be done via Organ Settings > Keyboards.

If for instance you want the bottom octave of the pedalboard to operate pedal stops in the normal way, go to Pedals in the left hand column, then on the Primary Input tab set the MIDI note range to 036 (lowest) to 048 (highest), and MIDI channel to your usual pedal channel. Then go to the Input 2 tab , and set the MIDI note range to 049 (lowest) to 067 (highest), and the MIDI channel to that of the manual whose stops you want to play on the pedals.

If you want to divide the pedals at a different point, just alter 048 on the Primary Input and 049 on Input 2 accordingly.

The Organ Keyboards menu allows a total of 4 inputs, so you could have a up to 3 manuals permanently coupled to part of the pedalboard if you wish.
