Jim Henry Explains
Setterboards and Combination Action

These are the spring wire switches used to set the combinations. Photo courtisy of Jim Henry, creator of the Mighty MidiTzer.

These are the spring wire switches used to set
the combinations on a WurliTzer Theatre Pipe Organ.

Today, Jim Henry posted a wonderful desertation and set of pictures about the Combination Action on a WurliTzer Theatre Pipe Organ at TOSF on Yahoo! We decided that, since it was such a wealth of information, we would include it on our How is a Church Pipe Organ different from a Theatre Pipe Organ? page in the Walnut Hill Virtual Theatre Pipe Organ section.

Thanks, Jim, for the education and taking the time to share your knowledge with us!

Walnut Hill Gets A New Look!

Today we began the process of adding custom title banners to the tops of each page. There are seventy pages on the site so far. This will take us some time to accomplish. We want to make the graphics on our site a bit nicer. While we are doing this, we will be looking for small flaws we have missed and fixing them all. Let us know what you think about the new look. We are open to constructive feedback from our loyal patrons.

Enjoy!

MidiTzer v0.40 Is Coming

Click here to learn more about the Little Virtual TPO that could!

This was posted today by TOSF moderator Jim Henry, creator of the Mighty MidiTzer:

From: Jim Henry at TOSF on Yahoo!

Subject: MidiTzer 0.40 Beta is coming

The next version of the MidiTzer is coming along very nicely thanks to wonderful programming work being done by Crew Glazjev. I expect that it will be released for beta testing in a few weeks. Documentation is the largest task left before that happens.

I will be recruiting beta testers via the MidiTzer Newsletter. If you haven't already done so, sign up for the Newsletter here:

http://www.virtualorgan.com/Default.asp?Page=35

Sign up for the Newsletter even if you aren't interested in being a beta tester because that is probably where the announcements regarding the 0.40 version will be made. My prediction is that there won't be many more releases until we jump to MidiTzer 1.0. MidiTzer 0.40 has some very nice new features and it is well organized to support completion of everything needed to completely emulate the 2/10 Mighty WurliTzer Style 216 Theatre Pipe Organ.

You should sign up for the Newsletter today because you don't get back issues when you subscribe. If you miss something that is announced in the Newsletter, such as MidiTzer 0.31, you can't catch up by subscribing after the fact. Don't worry about your email being sold. We don't do that. Your email address isn't worth enough to make that worthwhile ;-) And don't worry about your mailbox being filled up with Newsletters. I think there have only been two in six months.

Jim Henry

We want to let Jim Henry know that Walnut Hill Productions will gladly be among the beta testers. Jim, you have our vote. Sign us up. We will post the results here at the site on the Mighty MidiTzer Project's forthcoming New Music Page.

Thanks, Jim. Keep up the great work!
