The Sequencer uses the Previous, Restore & Next pistons to move forwards or backwards through an independent set of up to 999 settings. In addition it is possible to insert a further 999 A inserts between each setting.

  Advances to the next sequencer setting each time the next piston is operated.
  Alternatively, using the previous piston, moves down to a sequencer setting.



The sequencer allows the storage of a completely independent set of general registration settings that are instantly recalled using a NEXT and PREVIOUS piston.The size of the organ will dictate the number of sequencer settings that are available. Normally up to 1000 sequencer settings can be stored, equivalent to an additional ten general pistons on one hundred levels.

The sequence number therefore represents the registration steps through a piece of music. In many cases reflection will dictate that changes are necessary and may involve the addition or removal of sequences. The INSERT and DELETE switches have been provided for such occasions. The INSERT function allows one insert to be made between two sequences and is indicated by a suffix A to the display. The DELETE function allows a sequence or a set of sequences to be deleted.

In addition to the next and previous pistons a RESTORE piston is provided. It must be remembered that the sequencer works alongside and in addition to the normal piston system. A visual LED is provided to indicate when the sequencer display has been over-ridden and is no longer valid. This could occur when the registration has been changed by hand or by use of pistons. The RESTORE piston is used in this situation to restore the registration to that indicated on the sequencer display but not advance to the next sequence.
