Domus 1232... perplexing ?. (1 reply)
Yesterday I was privileged to be asked to play for the Memorial service of a dear friend.. on a Domus 1232, an instrument which on past occasions I have seemingly had control over its superb registrations!.
However, when switching on I found immediately that on both manuals and pedals it was giving to me a mixture of what appeared to be a mixture of Principals Octaves, and a 2 foot Flute !.
None of the Tabs were lit, so I chose the Reeds on Manual 2 which spoke clearly... as did the former Foundation Stops !..
I tried then to use the Oboe as a solo instrument, again this spoke.. but was overwhelmed by the Principals Mixture.
Now, I had no idea how to cancel this irritating battery of sounds to make appropriate registration choices and this threw me for the remainder of my time !.
It is not the Organ which I play regularly, but if I can straighten the problem out for the resident Organist via our Forum then I would be really obliged for any advice received... I am perplexed, HELP !.
I am sure you tried general cancel without it curing the problem so it would be worth trying switching the organ completely off (i.e. remove ALL power) and then on again after a minute or so.
There may be a menu option to "Reset" the organ - try this. This option may be well hidden in the menus so have a good search. (You may find a user handbook on line which could be helpful.) There may be a memory storage battery which is exhausted and needs replacing - you will need to look inside for this.
If all this fails then the organ is likely to be faulty and will need expert attention.
