Turn On/Turn Off
On
Off
•
Turning on:
Depending on model, press and hold the top of the On/Off rocker switch for approximately
2 seconds and release or press the top of the On/Off switch labeled (―) until it locks into
place. The instrument identification message appears in the display window. The organ
then performs a diagnostic test of its systems over the next few seconds. When completed,
the display window reads TRANSPOSER O. The organ is ready to play.
•
Turning off:
Press and hold the bottom of the On/Off rocker switch for no more than 1-2 seconds
and release, or press the bottom of the On/Off switch labeled (O) until it locks into
place. Should you need to turn the power on just after you turned it off, wait
about 20 seconds before turning the power on again.
2 Depending on model, the organ may be equipped with an Automatic Shutdown
feature. See the AG.
Manuals and Pedalboard
The organ has keyboards played by the hands, commonly referred to as manuals. Each manual
plays an assortment of stops, known as a division. The keyboard played by the feet is referred
to as the pedalboard, and stops played by the pedalboard make up the Pedal division. Three
manual organs contain, in order from bottom to top, the Choir Manual, the Great Manual, and
the Swell Manual.
Stops
•
What is a stop?
12
The term stop is used to describe a single voice on an organ. Stops are activated by Rocker
Tablets (tabs) and/or Drawknobs. Depending on model, a stop may also be activated by a
piston (i.e. chimes). The stop will sound if it is activated and any keys or pedals that control
that division are pressed.
2
•
For a description of stops and their character of sound, refer to Appendix A.
How to turn on/off a stop
To activate a stop or control, pull the drawknob or press the bottom of the tab, and release. To
deactivate a stop or control, push the drawknob or press the top of the tab, and release.
All stops can be cleared quickly by pressing the General Cancel piston, (labeled
‘0’) located on the right-hand side under the bottom keyboard. Simply press and
release this piston to cancel a registration.
2 Many stops have more than one voice to choose from. This is referred to as the
Rodgers Voice Palette™. See the AG (Advanced User’s Guide)
•
Tremulants
If your organ has no stops on but you turn on a Tremulant and play a key, you will hear nothing.
Tremulants create a “wavy” sound to organ stops already turned on. Actually, tremulants
change the pitch (sharp and flat), amplitude (volume) and timbre (tone quality). The use of the
tremulant adds warmth and expressiveness to solo or small ensemble combinations. It is not
common to use tremulants in larger classical ensembles. In some romantic ensembles,
tremulants are used judiciously. In some gospel and evangelical musical traditions, tremulants
with a wider and deeper excursion are frequently used.
There are two types of tremulant controls. Divisional tremulants affect only the stops in their
respective division. Divisional tremulants are drawknobs or tabs located among the stops per
division, labeled TREMULANT or they may be thumb pistons labeled SW TREM, GT TREM, CH
TREM, etc. General tremulants affect all divisions. General tremulants usually are thumb
pistons labeled FLUTE TREM II, MAIN TREM II, FLUTE TREM ALT, or MAIN TREM ALT.
Couplers
If your organ has no stops on but you turn on a coupler and play a key, you will hear nothing. A
Coupler is a control which allows stops from a division of the organ to be played on a different
manual. For example, by activating the Swell to Great coupler, you could play stops in the
13
Swell division on the Great manual. (“Swell to Great” literally means, “connect the Swell
division to the Great manual”). Couplers allow you to control a larger portion of the organ from
one manual or the pedalboard and are useful in achieving larger or more varied registrations.
•
Intermanual Couplers
An Intermanual Coupler is a control that allows a division of the organ to be played from a
different manual or the pedalboard. They most often function from tabs located above the
Swell manual (also called the tab rail).
The pitch designation (16, 8, 4) specifies the pitch at which the division is to be coupled. 8’
is concert pitch in organ nomenclature; when using an 8’ coupler, the division is coupled at
its normal pitch.
4’ pitch is an octave above 8’ pitch. When a 4’ coupler is used, the division is coupled an
octave higher than normal. This nomenclature is similar to the pitch designation used in
organ stops.
8’ intermanual couplers are commonly used when building large ensemble registrations,
whereas 4’ couplers are usually not employed.
4’ couplers are often used with celeste stops in more gentle registrations; they effectively
increase the number of notes that are sounding and increase the warmth and breadth of
the ensemble.
•
Intramanual Couplers
Intramanual couplers are different from intermanual couplers in that they operate within a
single organ division. These couplers allow you to play stops of the organ at a different pitch
level on the same manual where the stop is located. These couplers are often referred to as
Sub Couplers and Super Couplers. For example, by activating the Swell to Swell 16’ coupler
(Sub), the stops selected in the Swell division will sound one octave lower than the key played
on the Swell manual. An exception is the first octave where the lowest 12 notes will only sound
at unison pitch. With the Swell to Swell 4’ coupler (Super) activated, the stops selected in the
Swell division will sound one octave higher than the key played on the Swell manual. An
exception is the last octave where the highest 12 notes will not play if the selected stop is 2' or
shorter.
14
Another example of intramanual couplers is UNISON OFF. The SWELL UNISON OFF coupler
silences notes at concert or unison pitch (hence, the name) on the swell manual. The Choir
intramanual coupler is labeled CHOIR UNISON OFF and silences notes on the Choir manual.
For example, selecting the SWELL UNISON OFF coupler would cause activated stops in the Swell
division to be silent even when notes are played on the Swell manual. The Unison Off couplers
are useful when you want to couple a division somewhere else without having it sound on its
assigned manual (i.e., you want to couple stops in Swell division to the Great but don’t want
them to play from the Swell manual).
•
MIDI Couplers
MIDI and MIDI/ORCH couplers are located under their respective manuals on thumb pistons.
The couplers labeled MIDI SW A and MIDI SW B for the Swell Manual,
MIDI GT A and MIDI GT B for the Great Manual, MIDI CH A and MIDI CH
B for the Choir manual and MIDI PED A and MIDI PED B for the pedals
allow sounds from an external sound module to be played from different
divisions of the organ.
Depending on model, some organs feature as many as 52 internal
orchestral voices. If the instrument has internal orchestral voices the
MIDI couplers will be labeled MIDI/ORCH SW A and MIDI/ORCH SW B for
the Swell Manual, MIDI/ORCH GT A and MIDI/ORCH GT B for the Great
Manual, MIDI/ORCH CH A and MIDI/ORCH CH B for the Choir manual and MIDI/ORCH PED A
and MIDI/ORCH PED B for the pedals.
To assign internal sounds on instruments with MIDI/ORCH pistons:
1. Press and hold the SET piston, located on the left-hand side under the Choir
manual. While holding SET press the MIDI/ORCH piston to where the sound is
to be assigned (MIDI/ORCH SW A, MIDI/ORCH GT A, etc.) and release both
pistons. The selected MIDI piston will light.
2. In the display, the word “Tones” will be highlighted.
3. Press QUICK MENU.
4. Turn the Alpha Dial to select the desired sound.
5. Press STOP to exit this mode. The selected sound is now stored on the selected
MIDI/ORCH piston.
6. This instrument will remember the selected sounds the next time the organ is
turned on ONLY if you save your MIDI/ORCH sounds into a general or divisional
combination piston.
2 For assigning sounds from an external sound module see the AG (Advanced User’s Guide).
15
Pistons
Pistons are the “buttons” on the organ. These pistons are located beneath the manuals of the
organ or adjacent to the expression shoes. Pressing a piston will cause its stored registration to
be recalled instantly. Each of the available pistons in the Rodgers combination action can be
easily changed to suit your particular needs and tastes. The Rodgers organ has two different
types of combination action pistons, general and divisional pistons.
•
General Pistons
General pistons affect the entire organ. Up to 12 General pistons are
available, depending on model. They are located on thumb pistons
under the left-hand side of the Great and Swell manuals. In addition,
they are duplicated on toe pistons adjacent to the expression shoes.
To recall a registration stored on a general piston, you could press
either the corresponding thumb piston or toe piston; in other words, to
select general piston 3, you could either press thumb piston 3 under
the Swell manual or toe piston 3. The duplication of pistons allows you
to use either your hand or foot to recall the same registration,
depending on what is most convenient.
•
Divisional Pistons
Divisional pistons affect a single division. There are up to six
divisional pistons for the Great, Swell and Choir; these pistons
are either numbered from one to as many as six or one to five
with the sixth labeled O for the divisional cancel depending on
model. These pistons are located under the corresponding
manual. For example, Great divisional pistons are located
underneath the Great manual near the middle of the keyboard. Swell divisional pistons are
below the Swell manual, and Choir divisional pistons are located under the Choir manual.
Some Rodgers models feature Pedal divisional pistons. They are located on the toe pistons to
the right of the expression shoes or under the Choir manual to the far left.
•
How to Set a Piston
The Rodgers organ is equipped with factory registrations, each of which can be used for a wide
variety of musical effects. However, the contents of any piston can be easily changed to suit
your particular needs. To set a new registration on a piston:
1. Select the desired stops, couplers and/or MIDI settings.
2. Press and hold the SET piston. While continuing to hold SET, press the piston
(General or Divisional) to be programmed.
3. Release both pistons. The new registration is now stored.
2 A memory level must be unlocked before a piston can be changed. See page 23.
16
•
General and Divisional Cancel
When TRANSPOSER is displayed in the window, ALL stops, couplers and MIDI
settings can be cleared by pressing the General Cancel piston, (O) located under
the Choir manual at the right-hand side of the keyboard. Depending on model,
stops can be cleared in a particular division by pressing a Divisional Cancel piston
(O) located to the right of the #5 divisional combination action pistons.
•
Memory Levels
Rodgers advanced combination action system has up to 100 memory levels depending on
model. This effectively multiplies the number of available combination pistons by up to 100.
Combinations stored one memory level don’t affect those stored on other memory levels; each
of the memories is independent.
Many organists keep regularly used registrations, such as those used for hymns, on one
memory and use other memory levels for preludes, postludes and choral accompaniments,
which may change week to week.*
*Note: A variety of useful registrations have already been stored when the organ arrives from
the factory.
Memory Levels can be selected by pressing the corresponding piston M1, M2, M3, etc. or the
pistons labeled M+, M-, or MEM UP, MEM DOWN, depending on model. When a memory level
is selected, the memory level appears in the display window.
To select a memory level:
Press the corresponding memory piston (M1, M2, M3, etc.) or press the M- or M+
(or MEM DOWN, MEM UP) piston until the desired level (0 thru 99 depending on
model) is displayed in the window. M1 is automatically selected when the organ is
turned on.
2 With Rodgers USB data port, unlimited memory levels are available. See the AG
(Advanced User’s Guide)
Additional piston functions that may be present on your organ (depending on
model)
•
All Swells (or ALL EXPR SW)
There are times when it is desirable to use a single expression shoe to control all divisions under
expression. When the ALL SWELLS (or ALL EXPR SW) piston is lit, the Choir, Swell and Solo
17
divisions are all assigned to the Swell expression shoe, allowing you to easily control the volume
of every enclosed division.
2 If ALL SWELLS, GT-PD ENCL and FEST TR ENCL (FFF REEDS ENCL) are all activated, the
entire organ is enclosed and can be expressed by the Swell expression shoe.
•
Great/Pedal Enclosed
On some Rodgers organs the Great and Pedal divisions are unenclosed; that is, their volume is
unaffected by movements of the expression shoes. This allows the organist to change the
volume of the Choir, Swell and Solo divisions while the volume of Great and Pedal divisions’
remains constant. There are times, however, when it is desirable to have the Great and Pedal
divisions “under expression”, that is, affected by movement of the expression shoes. When
activated, the GT PED ENCL piston is lit, and the Great and Pedal divisions change to enclosed;
that is, their volume is now controlled by the Choir expression shoe.
•
Great/Pedal Unenclosed
Other Rodgers models feature Great and Pedal divisions that are enclosed; that is, their volume
is affected by movements of the expression shoes. This allows the organist to change the
volume of the Choir, Swell and Solo divisions as well as the volume of the Great and Pedal
divisions’.
There are times, however, when it is desirable to have the Great and Pedal divisions
unenclosed; that is, not affected by movement of the expression shoes. When activated, the
GT PED UNENCL piston is lit, the Great and Pedal divisions change to unenclosed and their
volume is no longer controlled by the Choir expression shoe.
•
Festival Trumpet Enclosed (FFF Reeds Enclosed)
The Festival Trumpet 8’ and solo reeds (FFF) are normally unenclosed; that is, not affected by
the expression shoes. However, when the FEST TR ENCL (may be labeled FFF REEDS ENCL)
piston or tab is activated, the Festival Trumpet 8’ and the other FFF reeds stop are enclosed
and will be expressed by the appropriate divisional shoe.
•
Solo to Choir Expression
Normally, the Solo division expresses with the Swell; when the Swell expression shoe is moved,
both the Swell and Solo divisions change in volume. By activating the SOLO EXPR CH piston, the
Solo division will express from the Choir expression shoe, rather than the Swell expression
shoe. This feature gives you the ability to control the volume of the Swell and Solo divisions
independently.
•
Tutti (or Full Organ)
There are times when a full organ registration is needed immediately. A Tutti (or Full Organ)
control allows you to engage full organ quickly without canceling your set registration. Some
models will have a TUTTI I and a TUTTI II. Activate the control by pressing the TUTTI I or TUTTI
II thumb piston or toe stud; press again to turn off Tutti and return to the current registration.
18
When Tutti is activated, the Tutti indicator located directly above the Crescendo indicator is lit.
Pressing General Cancel will also cancel Tutti. TUTTI comes programmed from the Rodgers
factory.
2 Tutti can be reprogrammed, if desired. See the AG (Advanced User’s Guide)
•
Melody Couplers (MEL SW, MEL CH, MEL SO)
One of the most popular organ registrations utilizes a melody voice on one manual and
accompaniment on another manual. Sometimes, however, it is difficult to separate the hands
on two manuals. For this reason, the Rodgers Melody coupler was devised.
When a Melody coupler is activated, the highest note played on the Great manual uses a
registration from another manual. This allows you to have both an accompaniment and solo
registration, even though you’re playing on one manual. These couplers are located on thumb
pistons under the Great manual, and are labeled MEL SW and MEL CH. These pistons light
when activated.
When the Melody from Swell is activated (MEL SW is lit), any selected stop or MIDI voice in the
Swell division sounds from the highest key being played on the Great manual. When Melody
from Choir is activated (MEL CH is lit), any selected stop or MIDI voice in the Choir division
sounds from the highest key being played on the Great manual.
Melody couplers should be used when the corresponding intermanual coupler is not engaged.
For example, when Melody from Swell is activated, the Swell to Great couplers should not be
used to achieve the proper “Melody” affect. Likewise, when Melody from Choir is engaged, the
Choir to Great couplers should not be used.
In its default setting, the Melody Coupler operates when the top note (the melody note) is
between keys 25 and 61 on the Great manual. However, the lower end of its range is
programmable and may be extended down to key 13 or up to key 49. See AG (Advanced User’s
Guide).
2 Melody Couplers can be set only in General combination pistons.
•
Bass Coupler (BASS)
The Bass coupler is much like the Melody coupler described above, except that it adds the
Pedal registration to the lowest note played on the Great manual. This allows you to easily add
a Pedal part to anything played on the Great manual.
The BASS coupler is located on a thumb piston beneath the Great manual. When activated, the
piston lights, and any selected registration in the Pedal division will sound from the lowest key
being played on the Great manual. This provides a pedal bass sound without actually playing
the pedalboard. In the default setting, the Bass Coupler affects keys 1 through 24 of the Great
19
manual, but its range can extend up to key 32 (top of the pedalboard range). See AG (Advanced
User’s Guide).
2 The Bass Coupler can be set only in General combination pistons.
•
Zimbelstern
Depending on model, the organ may have a digital Zimbelstern (translated “bell star”). This
percussive device is most often used in bright music of the Baroque period. The Zimbelstern is
activated by a lighted reversible piston (“ZIMBEL”). Press the piston to activate the Zimbelstern;
press it again to turn it off. The digital Zimbelstern’s rate and random settings can be adjusted
to suit your particular needs. See AG (Advanced User’s Guide).
•
Alternate Crescendo
All Rodgers organs are equipped with a Standard Crescendo that is classical in nature.
Depending on model, an Alternate Crescendo may also be available.
The Standard Crescendo is active when the organ is first turned on, and anytime the ALT CRESC
piston is unlit. Pressing the ALT CRESC reversible piston engages the Alternate Crescendo.
2 The Standard and Alternate Crescendo can each be user-reprogrammed to use a different
sequence of stops. See the AG (Advanced User’s Guide)
Console Displays, Indicators, and Menus
Masterpiece Organ series display
Allegiant Organ series display
The Rodgers organ is equipped with an informative display for many of the console functions
described in this section. The Console Display normally indicates the active memory level, the
current time and the Transposer setting, however, it can also display Voice Palette selections or
various menus to adjust parameters and preferences including MIDI settings, Dimensional
Sound Modeling parameters, Tremulant rate and depth, and many others.
Two controls are used to select and modify the features found in the Console Display. The
smaller knob is the Select knob; it is used to select the menu item to be changed. The larger dial
is called the Alpha Dial; it is used to change the settings in a selected menu. Most of the
features that can be modified in the Console display will follow this pattern:
20
Select Knob – (the smaller knob) selects (highlights) a menu item
Alpha Dial – (the larger dial) changes the selected item’s value
Depending on model, the Select knob and Alpha Dial may be configured as:

24
Reversibles
Rodgers organs are equipped with a number of reversible controls, so named because pressing
them once will activate the function, pressing them again will deactivate the function. These
reversibles, located on thumb and toe pistons, are especially useful in a performance when you
want to quickly activate or remove a single coupler, stop or other setting. Press the thumb or
toe piston to turn on, and press again to turn off. All reversible thumb pistons light when
activated.
Expression Shoes and Controls
Rodgers three manual organs have two Expression Shoes and a Crescendo Shoe that are used
to control the volume and registration of the organ. The left shoe normally controls the volume
of the Choir division and the middle shoe controls the volume of the Swell and Solo divisions.
When the expression shoe is pressed forward, the volume of the division is increased. When
the shoe is drawn back, the volume of the division decreases. The positions of the two
expression shoes are displayed on two expression indicators, located on the right-hand side of
the coupler rail or on the display.
Crescendo Shoe and Controls
The slightly raised shoe on the right is the Crescendo shoe. This shoe gradually adds a
predetermined selection of stops as it is pressed forward. It does not affect the stops already in
use on the organ but merely adds to them as the Crescendo is activated. Closing the Crescendo
shoe subtracts the stops in reverse order. Stops added by the Crescendo shoe do not indicate
they are activated. A Crescendo indicator, which shows the position of the Crescendo shoe, is
located on the right-hand side of the coupler rail next to the two expression indicators or in the
display.
Transposer
The Transposer allows you to change the key of music played. Commonly, this is used to
accommodate a soloist or instrumentalist who prefers accompaniment in a different key than
what is written or to easily raise or lower the pitch of a hymn. The Transposer position is
normally shown in the Console Display. If another screen appears in the display (i.e., while
25
programming a specific parameter), you can easily return to the Transposer by pressing the
General Cancel (O) or STOP thumb piston until TRANSPOSER appears in the display.
Turning the Select knob while TRANSPOSER 0 is displayed lowers or raises the pitch of the
organ. Rotating the Select knob clockwise raises the pitch of the organ by semitones; rotating
counter-clockwise lowers the pitch by semitones. Pressing General Cancel returns the
Transposer to O, (no transposition).
Tremulants
Tremulants create a change in pitch (sharp and flat), amplitude (volume) and timbre (tone
quality). The use of the tremulant adds warmth and expressiveness to solo or small ensemble
combinations. It is not common to use tremulants in larger classical ensembles. In some
romantic ensembles, tremulants are used judiciously. In some gospel and evangelical musical
traditions, tremulants with a wider and deeper excursion are frequently used.
There are two types of tremulant controls available on Rodgers organs, divisional tremulants
that affect only the stops in their respective division and general tremulants that affect all
divisions.
If there is a Solo division on the organ, up to four divisional tremulants may used. One each for
the Great, Swell, Choir and Solo; the first three are controlled by a tab or drawknob within each
division, while the Solo tremulant, if applicable, is located on a thumb piston.
Some models also feature up to two additional general tremulants, Main Tremulant II and Flute
Tremulant II. They will be located on thumb pistons labeled MAIN TREM II and FLUTE TREM II.
Both of these tremulants find their best use in gospel, theatre and evangelical music; the Main
tremulant affects Principal, String and Reed voices whereas the Flute tremulant affects Flute
voices. Divisional tremulants can be stored with registrations in both general and
corresponding divisional pistons; general tremulants can only be stored on general pistons.
2 Each tremulant can be modified easily to suit your tastes and needs. See the AG

APPENDIX A – A DESCRIPTION OF STOPS
•
Organ stops are grouped into four main families: Principals, Flutes, Strings and Reeds.
o The Principal family is the group of stops which are unique to the organ, they aren’t
imitative of other instruments. Principals are often referred to as the “backbone” of the
organ and play a strong role in hymn accompaniments and as the foundation of many
chorus registrations. Examples of stops belonging to the Principal family are:
Gravissima
Principal
Diapason
Open Diapason
Montre
Praestant
Prinzipal
Geigen
Octave
Super Octave
Fifteenth
Choral Bass
Quint, Quinte
Sesquialtera
Terz
Nasat, Nazat
Fourniture
Mixtur, Mixture
Cymbale, Zimbel
Scharf, Scharff
Rauschquint
Plein Jeu
Seventeenth
Twenty-Second
Fugara
Tenth
Harmonics
Major Bass
Contrebass
Open Wood
Oktav
Doublette
o The Flute family consists of stops which are generally imitative of orchestral flutes and
recorders. This is an extremely diverse group of stops which function in a myriad of
ways, from acting as a solo color to serving as the basis of ensemble registrations, either
by themselves or in combination with other stops. Examples of stops belonging to the
Flute family are:
Bourdon
Flute
Spitzflöte
Doppelflöte
Flûte Harmonique
Stopped Diapason
Holzgedeckt
Gedeckt, Gedackt
Bourdon Doux
Chimney Flute
Rohrflöte
Cor de Nuit
Concert Flute
Cornet
Nazard
Tierce
Flauto Traverso
Clarabella
Waldflöte
Hohlflöte
Spillflöte
Nachthorn
Orchestral Flute
Concert Flute
Koppelflöte
Larigot
Fife
Piccolo
Tibia
Lieblich Gedeckt
Quintade, Quintaton
Subbass
o String stops do exactly what you would imagine — they imitate the sound of orchestral
strings. These ranks are smaller in scale than most other ranks and usually have a lot of
upper harmonics and a “clean” or “silvery” timbre. This characteristic makes them well
suited to accompaniment and softer ensembles. String stops include:
Gamba, Gambe
Viole, Viola, Viol
Violone
Dulcet, Dulcett
Vox Celeste
Salicional
Viola Pomposa
Violincello
Muted Viols
Erzahler
Gemshorn
Dulciana
o Members of the Reed family are also very diverse and are used for everything from solo
colors to the fiery crown in a full organ registration. These stops are often imitative of
orchestral reeds and brass. Examples of reed stops are:
Basset Horn
Basson
Bombarde
Festival Trumpet
Chamade
Trumpet
Musette
Clarinet
Oboe
Regal
Chalumeau
Tromba
27
Clairon, Clarion
Cornopean
Cremona, Cromorne
English Horn
Fagot, Fagotto
•
Tuba
French Horn
Kinura
Vox Humana
Voix Humaine
Hautbois
Posaune
Post Horn
Rankett
Rohrschalmei
Trombone
Trompette
Krummhorn
Schalmei
Zink
Other Families of Stops
o Percussion
The Percussion family includes voices such as the Chimes, Handbells, Harp,
Celesta and Harpsichord. These stops have a percussive attack and gradually
grow softer as you hold the note. The Zimbelstern is also a member of the
Percussion family.
o Orchestral
Examples of Orchestral voices include the Strings, Slow Strings, Orchestral Oboe
and Brass Ensemble.
o Choral
Examples of Choral voices include the Soprano Ah, SATB Ah, SATB Oo, Boychoir,
and Amens/Alleluias.
•
The number on the stop shows its pitch.
The stops and couplers on the organ each have a pitch designation listed in feet (8’, 4’, 16’,
etc.). 8’ refers to concert pitch; a key played on an 8’ stop will have an identical pitch as the
same key played on a piano. 16’ represents an octave below concert pitch; a key played on a
16’ stop will sound an octave below an 8’ stop. This system of designating pitches represents
the approximate length of open organ pipes; the largest pipe in an 8’ rank is approximately
eight feet long; the largest pipe in a 16’ rank is about sixteen feet long. Other footages and
their relationship to concert pitch are listed in the table below:
•

two octaves below
16’
one octave below
8’
equal to concert pitch (also known as ‘Unison’)
4’
one octave above
2’
two octaves above
1’
three octaves above
Fraction? It’s a “Mutation” stop.
Mutation stops have fractions in their pitch designations. This means that their pitch falls
somewhere other than on the octave. (Refer to the table below).
28

2-2/3’
Nazard
one octave and a fifth above
1-3/5’
Tierce
two octaves and a third above
1-1/3’
Larigot
two octaves and a fifth above
Mutations are most commonly from the flute family and are often used with other flute stops
in registrations or ensembles for early organ music. Because mutations often appear in
divisions with a number of other flute stops, a great diversity of solo color can be achieved by
using various combinations of stops. See the following table for common solo registrations
utilizing mutations.
Common Registrations for a Solo Melody
Using Flute Stops and Mutation Stops
Flutes 8’ + 4’ + 2-2/3’ + 2’ + 1-3/5’
Flutes 8’ + 2-2/3’ + 1-3/5’
Flutes 8’ + 4’ + 2-2/3’
Flutes 8’ + 4’ + 2-2/3’
Flutes 8’ + 4’ + 2-2/3’ + 2’
Flutes 8’ + 4’ + 1-1/3’
Larger organs may have one or two mutation stops from the principal family. In most cases,
these ranks are used to add color to the principal chorus.
•
Roman Numeral? It’s a “Mixture” stop.
Mixture stops are easily identified because of a Roman numeral. Mixtures consist of multiple
Principal ranks; the Roman numeral following the name denotes the number of ranks contained
in the mixture. For example, a Mixture IV stop contains four ranks of Principal pipes. (A “rank”
is a distinct set of pipes. Most stops consist of one rank of 61 pipes = one pipe per keyboard
note. A four-rank mixture would have 4 pipes playing on each note.) Common mixture stop
names include:
Mixtur, Mixture
Fourniture
Plein Jeu
•
Cymbale
Zimbel
Scharf, Scharff
Chorus Mixture
Grave Mixture
Rauschquint
Grand Fourniture
Harmonics
Acuta
Céleste stops
Célestes are unique among organ stops in that they are intentionally tuned sharp or flat in
relation to the rest of the instrument, thereby producing an undulating (or “wavy”) effect.
Célestes are paired with a partner stop (often called a “unison”) which is similar in color to the
céleste stop but is in tune with the balance of the organ. When the unison and céleste are
drawn together, the tuning discrepancy between the two stops creates a beautiful undulating
quality suitable for lush, romantic textures. Célestes are either from the string or flute family,
with the latter usually being the quieter of the two. Some Céleste stops have a “II” (Roman
29
numeral) designating the unison and céleste stops are paired and are activated at the same
time. Examples of céleste stops include:
Flûte Céleste II
Erzähler Céleste II
Viole Céleste II
Unda Maris II
Gambe Céleste II
Principal Céleste II
Vox Céleste
Schwebung
Violoncello Céleste
Dulciana Céleste II
Dulcett III
Muted Viols II
TRY THIS: Listen to each stop on your organ individually. Hold a chord or a key and turn on and off
each stop, one by one. Listen for its character (identify to which family it belongs); listen for its
strength (loud/soft); listen for its pitch. Most importantly, learn and remember which stops are
the softest and the loudest.
!
•
The “Amens/Alleluias” stop
Depending on model, your Rodgers organ may contain a very unique stop called
Amens/Alleluias. This stop is quite different from a regular organ stop. Unlike a pipe organ stop
where all 61 keys play the same sound at a different pitch, this stop is comprised of four groups
of recordings of a choir singing Amen or Alleluia chants. As a key is pressed, the choir is heard.
This stop may be most useful for meditative improvisations. The improvisation could be as
simple and elegant as playing middle C on the Chimes, then playing one of the Amen recordings
(by depressing a C key). Or, the stop could be used more extensively in a more elaborate
improvisation. The chart below shows the four groups of Amen or Alleluia recordings. If you
play the “C” key as shown in the chart, you will hear the choir singing the Amen or Alleluia as
shown in the bottom music staff. Each recording is grouped in a range of 12 notes, from G to
F#. The Amen or Alleluia chant is heard in the corresponding key of the note you depress. Hold
the note down until the sound finishes. You may be tempted to move your fingers to a different
note as you hear changes in notes or harmonies on the recording. However, keep your finger
depressed on that key to the end of the sound. Play only one key at a time.

System exclusive MIDI data sent/received to/from the device connected to the
console’s SEQ IN and SEQ OUT MIDI ports: an external sequencer, or a separate
Rodgers organ or a remote MIDI keyboard. If “Pistons” is selected, Program
Changes are transmitted to communicate which pistons are engaged, not the
status of individual stops and couplers. This is often useful when controlling the
organ from a remote MIDI keyboard or another Rodgers organ. Caution: if
“Stops/Pistons” is selected for both “Send” and “Recv”, confusing data messages
may result in undesirable organ registrations. Default selections are Send: Stops,
Recv: Stops/Pistons.

which you change Memory Levels during the sequence or
Only /
(b) you have another Rodgers organ or remote keyboard

connected AND your “Send” menu above is set to
“Pistons;” the Memory Level number will be sent.
Select “and mem. Level” if (a) you play back a sequence
in which you changed Memory Levels during the
Only /
sequence or (b) you have another Rodgers organ or
remote keyboard connected AND your “Recv” menu
and mem. level
above is set to “Pistons;” the Memory Level number will
be received.
For advanced MIDI users, when set to “Off” the organ does not respond to Start,
Stop and Continue messages.
For advanced MIDI users, when set to “Off” the stops and keying data are
disconnected from the internal (“Local”) sounds of the organ. The organ still
transmits MIDI data which can be sequenced or used to control a separate Rodgers
organ. This feature can be used to silence the Master console when one Rodgers
organ controls another Rodgers console.
For MIDI sounds affected by velocity sensitivity, this determines the keyboard
touch sensitivity of all manuals – how much pressure is needed to achieve a high
velocity value. To save this value, hold SET and press 0 (Cancel) momentarily, then
release both. A “MIDI Save” message will appear in the display.
Default is 17. In most cases this should not be changed. When multiple consoles
are controlled via MIDI, each can use a different ID number, thereby allowing
independent control of each console’s registration. Note: the device ID reverts to
17 when the organ is powered off.

Pipe Modeling `
Settings that emulate pipe organ characteristics and temperaments.
Menu item
Temperament `
Value
Explanation
Historical styles of music such as baroque can be played in the tunings that were used during that time.
Temperament selections cannot be saved into a General or Divisional piston. At the conclusion of a
performance, pressing 0 (Cancel) will not return the temperament to default. To save any temperament
settings as power-on default, hold SET and press 0 (Cancel) momentarily, then release both. A “User Settings
Saved” message will appear in the display.
The modern standard which divides the octave into 12 equal intervals, allowing
performance in all keys successfully. Unlimited modulation from key to key is
Equal
possible.
Each of the intervals of a fifth is slightly contracted to generate a major third.
Major thirds and in-tune fifths are slightly narrow, and the differences between
Mean-Tone
the major and minor seconds are smoothed out.
A system of tuning attributed to the philosopher Pythagoras, in which the fourth
Pythagorean
and fifth intervals are pure. Chords including the third will not sound smooth.
Johann Philipp Kirnberger was a composer and a pupil of Bach. His temperament
Kirnberger
favored pure fifths but performance was improved in many keys.
Werckmeister I
Andreas Werckmeister further refined the Mean-Tone temperament.
Werckmeister III
Four tones are practically tuned identically to Equal temperament (C, D#, F# and
A).
Young I
Young II
Young temperaments offer further refinements to the Mean-Tone model, except
with slightly higher pitched sharps.
A part of Dimensional Sound Modeling, Rodgers’ exclusive Digital Dynamic Wind™ emulates the behavior of
pipe organ wind regulating devices and the response of pipes to an unsteady wind supply. Each stop is
programmed to respond to wind variations, just as in a pipe organ.

All Voice Palette stops are available for access.
Stops with Voice Palette alternates (depending on model) are denoted with a dot (‘●’) engraved on the
stop face for easy identification.
Depending on model, two shortcuts are available to select a Voice Palette sound:
1. Turn on the stop and the display immediately shows the active Voice Palette selection, or
2. Hold SET and turn on the stop, then the display shows the active Voice Palette selection.
Menu item
Stop `
Value
Explanation
Select from list using
the Alpha Dial.
The voice may be played as it is selected. The selection may be saved to a General
or Divisional piston for easy recall. However, Voice Palette selections listed on a
particular stop are not simultaneously available, i.e. if a stop may list “Diapason 8,
Principal 8, Prinzipal 8, Montre 8,” only one selection of the four is available at a
time for that stop. Default Voice Palette selections are denoted with a ‘*’ in the
display. Voice Palette selections may be set as default while the Voice Palette
menu appears in the display by holding SET and pressing 0 (Cancel) momentarily.
A “User Settings Saved” message will appear in the display.
Room Modeling `
•
•
•
•
A component of Dimensional Sound Modeling, Rodgers Sound Modeling™ system allows you to specify
the acoustic you desire. Room Modeling uses leading-edge technology to go beyond three-dimensional
sound and create a sense of distance, shape and ambience to the organ sound in the room.
You can preview the changes by playing the organ while adjusting the setting.
The default settings will return when the organ is powered on.
For a church installation, it is best not to save a new default selection which was set by the Rodgers
technician at installation.

Tuning is adjusted via the Alpha Dial or automatically adjusted via the Automatic
Pipe Tuner (if it is installed in a pipe interface). External MIDI devices (i.e. MX-200)
receive the tuning data messages.
This control affects the Tutti(s) and Crescendo sequence(s), when operated.
“Blind” is a pipe-organ term that means the stops and couplers do not light up (or
move, if the console has mechanical controls) when a Tutti or Crescendo is
engaged. “Visible” means the appropriate controls will light up (on lighted
consoles only) when a Tutti or Crescendo is engaged. “Operate” means the
appropriate controls will physically move and turn on (on moving drawknob
consoles) when a Tutti or Crescendo is engaged. The organist can then “operate”
or manually turn off any of the controls which were engaged from the Tutti or
Crescendo. Caution: the “operate” mode will cause the currently active registration
to immediately change to the registration of the Crescendo stages or the Tutti
registration.

APPENDIX C – ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE TOUCH KEYBOARDS
For generations, organ key tops were made from the best materials – ivory (for white keys) and
ebony (for black keys). The Performance Touch keyboards use the latest technologies to
reproduce the touch and feel of these materials.
● Surfaces incorporate stripes of moisture-absorbing material for improved touch and
playability.
● Keys feature a subtle gloss and understated coloring, enhancing the look and elegance.
● White keys are finished with a slight yellowish tinge for the look of real ivory.
Note: — To Ensure Usage in Optimal Conditions —
Handling…
● Do not write on the keyboard with any pen or other implement, and do not stamp or place
any marking on the instrument. Ink will seep into the surface lines and become unremovable.
● Do not affix stickers on the keyboard. You may be unable to remove stickers that use strong
adhesives, and the adhesive may cause discoloration.
Care and Maintenance…
Please note the following points. Failure to do so may result in scratches on the surface finish,
damaged gloss, or other discoloration or deformation.
● Gently wipe dirt and grime with soft cloth; do not rub the surfaces forcefully.
● To remove more serious grime, use a commercial keyboard cleaner not containing abrasives.
● Do not use benzene, paint thinner, or alcohol on the keys.
