Combination transfer from practice organ to church organ?

Postby organtechnology » Tue Dec 05, 2017 6:27 pm

How would one transfer combinations generated in at home practice sessions to the church organ. The practice organ and church organ are running the same sample set and are the same version of Hauptwerk.

Each Sunday would be stored in a named combination file (Sunday_10_DEC_2017 for example) while playing and practicing at home. Then as the effort moves to the church for practice, it would be nice to be able to upload the work without repeating it. It is Hauptwerk>Hauptwerk and Hereford XL>Hereford XL but the differences in console configurations makes a backup and restore not to be an option.

Copy and paste.
Using a memory stick or portable hard drive, copy the relevant combination file from one PC and paste it into the appropriate folder in the other PC.

Hello Thomas,

- On the computer from which you wish to export the combination set, with the relevant organ loaded, use 'Registration | Browse/rename/delete combination sets' to open a file browser in the relevant folder.

- Copy the relevant combination set (file) from that folder onto a USB stick (or similar).

- On the computer into which you wish to import the combination set, with the relevant organ loaded, use 'Registration | Import combination set' to import the file directly from the USB stick.
Best regards,
Martin.

Now that's a cool, useful feature. 8)

Could that created file be sent via email as an attachment?

Hello Ed,

It's just a file, so yes -- you could transfer it between the computers by any means you like, including as an email attachment. (However, for good measure it might be best to ZIP it in that case, to make sure the email software doesn't try to alter it.)
Best regards,
Martin.

Something like this device (mounted under the key desk) could be useful.

plus there is a provision for an extended headset.

(Trying to figure how to do this on a headless installation).

Thank you Dr. Dyde!
That should work nicely.

Hi Douglas,

That was my first thought and then I decided to ask the forum.
Hope things are going well with you.

Best regards,

Thomas

Yes that solution does require access to a USB connection on both organs. Fortunately there are such on the organs.

Best regards,

Thomas

Transferring and importing registrations between HW computers with identical sample sets is neat but almost expected in today's world of data integration (i.e. MS Outlook, Google, Yahoo, and iPhone calendars can all be in sync and remain so regardless of which one gets updated).

I wanted add an observation to this thread that might have been overlooked. I am assisting a colleague and we are making use of the Hauptwerk Export/view current combinations as text listing feature to expedite preparation for an organ performance. My friend is quite talented and was asked to provide a 45 minute Christmas program on a Wurlitzer pipe organ in a historic town north of Dallas, TX. The logistics of this deal is that he will only get access to the instrument an hour before his performance! Fortunately the nature of this program will be informal but he still wants to be prepared allowing lots of registration changes typical of TO playing. There will most likely be folks in attendance hearing the Wurlitzer for the first time so he wants to exploit the many voices and percussions it has to offer.

He downloaded and installed the free Paramount 3/10 and set up the "numbered" pistons accordingly. The Wurlitzer pipe organ is 17 ranks vs the Paramount being only 10 ranks. Regardless this will allow for some productive practice with registration changes. The Wurlitzer has an electronic relay with plenty of vacant memory levels available. When he gets his Paramount pistons finalized, he will email the HW generated text listing, probably in a pdf format, to the organ curators at the venue so they can pre-program a memory level prior to his arrival. 8) This will be a tremendous time saver.

Can we continue to brag about the power Hauptwerk? :-)
