    Corelli sonata in Cmin, op5 no 7 arranged for GrandOrgue

    Work in progress!! Test recording of first movement so far, still needs a few tweaks, like sorting out registration, suggestions and/or comments welcome. Still have a further 3 movements to do.

    Registration changes done by Programme change (Cx) MIDI commands on relevant channel to operate divisionals, the Cx commands inserted into the MIDI file channels using an app called Midiocre.

    The sample set used is Stehr Mockers extended with the addition of some ranks from other sets (39 ranks)

    MP3 and MIDI files attached. (The MIDI file programme change Cx commands are normally used to change the instrument when driving a synth, so will get piano sounds if you play it through the MS synth in a PC)

    I got an organ sound from the mp3 file. It seems to me in first section is too( what I call ) muddy. The next section I find harsh sounding almost too brassey... These may just be the stops on the grandorgan system. Corelli to me needs the sound of clear crisp sounds. Maybe more principlals and less flute (16) 8,4,2, then maybe add a mixture(2 2/3) and light reed as alternate sound. Only a suggestion. I did enjoy the piece .Look forward to the rest.

    Hi Bill, the MP3 does sound like that I'm afraid, as I said it's the "first take", I just used the stops that were set on the divisionals from a previous session, mainly I was just checking that I'd got the changes in the right place rather than the actual registrations! At least the contrast was good for identifying the change point.

    Thinking about it the MIDI file is not much use without a VPO having the divisionals programmed to respond to the programme change commands used.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Herewith the remaining 3 movements.

    I'll wait for any suggestions before I finalise them and put them together as one piece, I think I've improved the sound a bit from that of the first movement posted, (tried to wash some of Bill's mud away!)

    Can't make any critical comments Mike as I do not know enough regarding this subject. All I can say is I enjoyed it and it sounded great to me.
