Confusion on Stops/Chamber Paramount 320

PostTue Apr 02, 2019 12:07 pm

I am somehow confused as to how to tell what exactly is controlled by the main and solo expression pedals respectively on theater organs, currently Paramount 320. Also, does anyone know how one can view the crescendo setup in a readable form rather than on the screen since it is absolutely so tiny its nearly illegible?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi Tom:
Here is the link to the rank specs on the Paramount website for the 3/20. Notice the (M) and (S) after the ranks to signify Main and Solo. Some percussions are labeled "(U)" for Unenclosed.

Thanks Danny, I'm embarrassed. I looked at that earlier and somehow overlooked the M S and U -- duh!!!

Don't fret, Tom. I know for a fact there are others esp new to Theatre organs that didn't know about that either, but didn't want to ask. So you did them a favor. 8)
