Virtual console Hauptwerk version 2 original
Here you see a representation of the original console from the organ of Krewerd.
The original organ has a so called short-octave. This so-called "short octave" is actually a "long octave". Earlier keyboards went down to F (with the keys F-G-A-B-H) (German key names). When organists wanted lower keys, the makers added them (C-D-E) in a very efficient manner. We now call this "short octave" but there are no keys that were left out; there were keys that were added. Later, of course, *more* keys were added (F sharp, G sharp,), etc.
On the original Kreward organ, Key E plays C, Key F plays F, Key F sharp plays D Key G plays G, Key G sharp plays E. The rest is normal.
The pedalboard is fixed and contains the keys C, D, E, F, G, A, A sharp, B, C, C sharp, D.

This Hauptwerk 1 version of the organ of Krewerd is a representation of the real organ.
The original organ has a so called short-octave. This so-called "short octave" is actually a "long octave". Earlier keyboards went down to F (with the keys F-G-A-B-H) (German key names). When organists wanted lower keys, the makers added them (C-D-E) in a very efficient manner. We now call this "short octave" but there are no keys that were left out; there were keys that were added. Later, of course, *more* keys were added (F sharp, G sharp,), etc. The following list of the lowest octave explains it. Key E plays C, Key F plays F, Key F sharp plays D Key G plays G, Key G sharp plays E. The rest is normal.
The pedalboard has only a few keys: C, D, E, F, G, A, A sharp, B, C, C sharp, D. The keys C sharp, D sharp, F sharp en G sharp are visible but they do not speak.

This is a the standard representation of the organ. The missing 4 samples per stop are created by retuning their lower neighbours one semitone up.
The pedalboard is here fixed coupled as usual.
Perhaps the purists among us do not like it but the extended version has 2 manuals and pedals with the 7 stops independently available. You can now play more complicated works. Click to enlarge
