Just in case no else says anything here on Piano Forum - I think it's a great arrangement! The sounds coming out of that organ are amazing. Nice Job.

Thanks, Woody

Most of computers' speakers (99%) can't play back the lower pitched instruments sounds played by its foot pedalboard

Yamaha makes amazing organs. I am pretty sure they are not available in the US - which is such a shame. We're stuck with digital pianos that kinda sorta emulate an organ.

Ken,

Why aren't they sold here in the US? Too expensive? Too few produced?

Thanks, Woody

I don't think the demand makes it worth exporting them. There used to be a lot of Yamaha organs sold in the US, but the demand dropped off once keyboards and digitals came on the scene. For anyone wanting to buy a new organ in the US these days, your choices are Hammonds, the Hammond clones, Lowrey, Rodgers, Allen, and probably a few more brands I am not thinking of.

Ken,
Except for the Hammond clones, It sounds like the same group available back in the late 50's/early 60's when I got my Hammond.

Philharmincguy,
Sorry about stealing your thread but, where are you from and do you have any more recordings? I'd love to hear them. Your organ and you make one great team!

Thanks, Woody

No problem. I'm living in Los Angeles. Yes, Yamaha doesn't sell it outside Asia. My instrument was imported from Japan. I have two other videoes when I began to learn it (they are public now)

Is the whole sound on the video coming out of the organ in real time, or did you record some of the parts to play along to? (whatever, its brilliant, well done, just very curious)

Yes, all instruments' sounds were played in real time. Its player can play up to 32 instruments' sounds at the same time (16 instruments for the upper manual, 8 for the lower manual and pedal board separately) by different ways: initial touch, after touch and horizontal touch. There are 16 register buttons between the upper and lower manuals. The maximum number of the registers for a song can be 16x4=64. This song totally uses 31 registers. Registers can be changed by the player's fingers to press these buttons, the right foot to push the register switch or by the instrument automatically. Unlike workstations (synth), arrangers or digital pianos, its sequencer function is very weak. Almost every sound must be played by the performcer except the rhythms. I guess this is one of the reasons why it isn't popular

How long did it take to work out the arrangement? It sounds as complex to learn the instrunment's sounds as it does to learn to "just" play an organ.

Thanks, Woody

It needs very long time to arrange a score to a Yamaha organ music (about 4-5 monthes including typing sheet music). Except arranging a song by youself, there are some different ways to play songs on an electon:

1. Using Yamaha preset styles and rhythms. This likes an arranger, such as Tyros but play two manuals and its pedboard. The sheet music for this situation can be only with melodys and chord signs. So, it can be 1, 2 or 3 staffs

2. Yamaha publishes some music books which use those preset a rhythms and styles and tell a player where to use what kind of voice (instrument). The player can set and save them into USB drive. You can edit the voices if it is needed

3. Yamaha sells some puplar songs data and books. Most of them are Japanese songs. A few of them are famous movies' music, such as Star War, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc. But the website, instruction, etc. are in Japanese (I don't understand Japanese). Please refer videos
