    MIDI

In 1996, Schantz Organ Co, took generous advantage of the latest technology in building the large Schantz console. It has full MIDI capability, giving the organist control over optional synthesized sounds; a transposer; ninety-nine memory levels; a great/choir manual transfer for performing the French repertoire; one fixed and one programmable sforzando; one fixed and three programmable crescendos; a switch allowing swell pistons to operate the pedal pistons; and a sequencer which replays the organ exactly as it has just been played, including changes in registration and swell shades. The keyboards are of bone and rosewood. Of primary consideration was the need for a low profile design to facilitate sight lines between organist and conductor. The whimsical drawknob engraved "Divine Inspiration" in the great division placed by Canon Musician, Howard Don Small was prompted by the eponymous murder mystery written by Jane Langton involving organists and organs in the Back Bay area of Boston.
