Last draw bar pulled with percussion

Postby philly360 » 25 Apr 2014, 15:28

Hello,

First, I want to say this is an amazing forum. Very helpful.

I'm a new owner of a C2 and have been exploring some of the features. I came a across a youtube video here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oK4qxcHHwQE

At approximately 8:02 he describes how the last draw bar for the swell manual can be pulled however if percussion is on, the effect will not be occur. However, once percussion is turned off the change in sound occurs immediately and this is a way to quickly change sounds.

So, on my C2 the percussion button seems to have no effect on the last draw bar. Are there other settings I should know about to make this effect work?

Thanks,
philly360

Hi, look into the manual on page 19.
It's in the Sound Menu, parameter no. 10 - Perc Drawbar 9 Cancel.

You can get the manual here: http://www.nordkeyboards.com/sites/defa ... eng%29.pdf

All the best to you!

"So, on my C2 the percussion button seems to have no effect on the last draw bar."

The percussion on button may be programmed to cancel or not cancel the last (1') drawbar.

Shift to the "Sound" menu, and go to No. 10. This should be printed on the right-hand side of the control panel, and it is also in the manual.

Either way is valid, and some people modified their tone-wheel organs to achieve this same effect.

It can also have a powerful effect if you have it pulled to something like 888000038 and percussion and then in the middle of a solo or song flip off the percussion and have a whole different sound. Like all topics organ this is a matter of preference
