Swellbox and Foot pistons

The swellbox is an enclosure with vertical venetian blind-type  shutters controlled by the swell pedal (or ‘swell shoe’). As a given  shutter closes, the pipes contained in that swellbox will sound quieter  and darker (with lesser amounts of high overtones). The
Scorze Organ’s swellbox characteristics are brought to life through modeling.

The Scorze pipe organ contains a MIDI assignable swellbox pedal and  all divisions are virtually enclosed. This means that once you assign  the swellbox pedal to an enclosed division you can control its state  instantly. To assign the swell pedal to various enclosures, you can use  the assignment buttons on the Keyboards Page.

For example, if you would like to control the Grand’ Organo and the  Organo Espressivo together with the pedal, just assign both of them to  swell pedal by pressing “Sw”. The state of the swell pedal is set to  default once you assign them to an other division.

The Scorze organ has 2 fully mechanical combination programs. The  first, closer to the organ is called “All G.O.”, and the second one  closer to the organist is called “Ance”. The stops of the tutti programs  can be called by switching on the desired foot piston.
