Thanks for the above. Do I remember correctly that using a computer keyboard with a numerical keypad, that you can change pitch register. If so, is that for the entire organ or by manual? Just curious.

I just tried the solo (F11) cancel, accomp (-) cancel, pedal ([) cancel, and trem (P) cancel with no success using the keyboard keys. All the other shortcuts work fine on the 0.60 version. The above all work using the mouse.

Mea culpa.  There was a change after the above figure was prepared.SOL = Insert or Home  (Home is GRT on 260SP)ACC = Page UpPED = Page Down (will be End in next release)TRM = End (will be Page Down in next release)

The numeric pad changes the pitch of the computer keys which play the Solo.

Thanks for the above info on the divisional cancels. I should have explored further.
This should be on the wish list probably, but would you consider making the trem cancel a reversible? Would be a cool operational element.

Trem cancel as a reversible was seriously considered but ultimately rejected as getting too far afield from how real pipe organs work.

Hi Jim.
In ref to Engrssc's post above, this could be a great idea in the future developments of the 260, "wishful thinking of cause", but i do remember some years ago George Wright playing the Dambusters March and he cancelled and reset the trems just before the end, there did not seem to be any registration change while he was doing this. it was quite an impressive difference to what he was playing.
Changing the above subject, what is your next project more ranks, more manuals ect, ect, what about the Mighty Mo at the Fox theatre Atlanta, or a nice easy one like the classical wanamaker. i love them both, anyway joking apart, thanks for everything.

Hi Dave,
"RES" refers to REStore. Check Jim Henry's post (April 22, 2006) explaining this feature:
