    The three images imported on related pages with image import function of Open Office.
    Then , after all was on open office pages, I started editing to get a good appearance (fonts, size, colours, distance from theme to theme, images fit, first page layout ect)
    When satisfied I exported this open office document as PDF.
    I think, that there are better ways to create a PDF version. The help is written in docbook, which supports (customizable) conversions into multiple formats.

    To get something editable, my current recommendation is:
    Code:
    docbook2rtf grandorgue.xml
    Package docbook-utils need to be installed (either from any Linux distribution or Cygwin). This results in one RTF document with TOC, only the image import is not working correctly.

    To produce directly a PDF, my current recommendation is:
    Code:
    dblatex grandorgue.xml -o grandorgue.pdf
    Package dblatex needs to be installed (Cygwin or any linux distribution).

    Both ways use predefined layout templates - the customization of these layout templates is possible.

    I'll attach an up to date help generated with dblatex (covering the multi-rank support too).

    I became a member (regular purchase) with Grandorgue 305, I know how to fix the stop sign,labels and more, but I have not figured out how to fix keyboards, x position, y position. Cansomeone kindly explain how to make?
    Thank you.
    Antonio.

    I wrote it with google translator, I do not know English.

    PositionX, PositionY

    These settings have been missing until recently. My PDF contains them too.

    The lastest version can be found in our SVN:

    Hi!

    In the respective [Manual999] section you can have the new options by adding lines for PositionX=(the x-value) and PositionY=(the y-value). This must be done for every manual (or pedal) that you wish to have in another position than what's according to the normal layout. Example usage in short version:

    [Manual001]
    PositionX=250
    PositionY=450

    Kind regards

    Hi ,

    I'm only on windows.... and I do not want to get involved into a linux/windows build of Cygwin... too much for me, as my main goal is to play music as easy as possible concerning software (far from easy so far..... he he)

    So I tried as I could. Your pdf is super ! I like the (at last !!) coloured background examples GO offers !
    Thanks for this and for sharing it !

    I thank those who intervened to help me. Now I am able to build any interface virtual organ (such as HW 4), which is certainly nice to see. I hope that GO will continue to grow.

    thank you very much.

    Antonio.

    Cygwin compiles the various *nix software as windows exe programs (using some compatibility DLLs and is a little bit slower).

    Cygwin is an easy to use:
    You download and start the installer, point it to an install directory with some free space and finally select the software (=packages), you want to install.


    If you want to work with the various docbook tools under Windows and don't have any easy to use/install native version, you really should use cygwin.

    Hi all -
    My first post here and mainly to say that this Pitea organ is wonderful. I've been playing for two days now and I love it more and more. I had not discovered the help files or larger text panels, so this thread has been quite useful. Thanks so much for the huge amount of work involved. It is really difficult to imagine how much effort has gone into this organ (as well as GO) to make it possible. Bravo!

    PS Thanks also to Panos for creating the PDF - timing is perfect as I will take it on the train with me this afternoon.

    Hi Dell, welcome to this super forum !
    Indeed one can find serious help from many special people in here.
    Also many enjoy-full discussions are regular and lots of fun !

    Thanks for your kind feedback, I love this organ too, but still maybe there is something we missed along the way.
    So, if you spot anything please post, so Lars, Graham or me can deal with :-)

    Try e9925248's latest pdf GO manual, as this has more info and especially about the number and the texture of the wooden panels, with example images on !

    Best

    The following applies to other samplesets also, but, as I am currently looking at the Piteň samples, I am going to ask this question in this thread. Here it is: Descriptions of the WAV file structure at http://www.myjuni.com/xe/MyDoc/57801 or http://www.sonicspot.com/guide/wavefiles.html tell that the start and end fields of the loop data in the smpl chunk are given as byte offsets. So the value of start and end should be a multiple of 4, shouldn't it? But this is not the case. For example the value of the loop start in PiteaMHS/HVCornetV/053-F.wav is 93563, which is not even even (). Obviously the values are given in frames instead of bytes. Right? Does the WAV specification allow this?

    Hi!

    Try reading some official documentation on the WAVE format. For instance http://www-mmsp.ece.mcgill.ca/Docume...cs/RIFFNEW.pdf or similar.

    The dwStart and dwEnd of a <sample-loop> does specify samples not any offset in bytes. Nowadays I think that frames are used instead of samples in the terminology to avoid confusion of whether you intend to have all the samples for all existing channels at a certain point or if you just want a single channels data (sample) at a certain spot. In my opinion it's easiest to think of the wave data just as the first channel with it's data laid out in a row (every sample in it's own column) and the possible additional channels as the row(s) beneath the first one...

    Anyway, it's certainly possible to have any individual sample (for a mono file) or frame (for multi channel files) as the dwStart and dwEnd, odd or even, and be perfectly standard compliant.

    Kind regards

    Thanks for that link, Lars, which will make for an important entry in my bookmarks. Other than the two documents that I referred to (and which seemed as if they could be trusted), this specification of Microsoft does indeed talk of "samples" and does not mention "byte offsets".
