I will never understand (as a non-player) how or why the imperfection of the organ mechanism in a tracker touch organ, the defect that the builders worked so hard to eliminate, has become such a desired feature. (insert emoji for :tounge-in-cheek here).

Thomas the builder.


It's not a defect, it's a charm.. :wink:

An important point when adding tracker touch to electric action keyboards, is to make the contact fires shortly after the resistance, "pluck" is overcome. If the contact fires before the pluck is broken or far after, the sense of control won't be gained.
Tracker touch is not always synonymous with heavy touch, I've played many organs, from small one manuals to three manuals with a brustwerk that had a touch so light, I was actually wishing it could be made heavier.
