Very nice! Are the stop switches moving in and out or is their status indicated by lights?

They are solenoid draw knobs, so yes, they moves. :)

Such a pretty console, and potentially a "Roller", but if so, why only 30 notes pedalboard, a single swell pedal, and so few foot pistons?

Sorry to be picky, but the rest is so well done, that these lacks seem to spoil it ...

Well done for the rest ...

Looks stunning... ! I'd have to agree with Ian though, be nice to have a few more expression pedals (with an optional AGO pedalboard for us across the pond :) )

:) The main instrument is Zwolle. The second one is Caen. I think that the equipment is sufficient.
Europeans believe that the organ is not Christmas tree.

Impressive console. I'm wondering if the spacing between the drawknobs isn't too large. Normally it is possible to activate or deactivate 2 or 3 stops next to each other easily. What I find very strange is the placement of the expression, between A# and d0#, I would expect between d#0 and f#0. Also the rollschweller is often placed left of the expression and is most of the time smaller; you do not need two feet on it together.

It looks like the Expression pedal is to be played with the left foot which seems awkward at best.

How did you address the issue of being able to turn on everything with one switch? I am working on some ideas of my own for this,but would love to hear about how you went about it?

allencga, EASY-ON is an electronic control of voltage controlled via MIDI. My own idea.

Andruss,

You might consider selling "Easy-on" as a stand-alone product. There have been several messages on the forum about this topic, so there could be a lot of interest in such a product.

I wonder whether it makes sense ... This is a very simple design and does not make sense to sell it at a high price. But the design is based on the electronic architecture of the instrument. Selling a "stand alone" would be too expensive.

In January we run a new website. You can order your console. With personalized preferences.
