Drawbar Settings [Upper]

 

By Thomas Shevels

 

An assortment of intersting sounds, some quite simple, others complex. A number of these were from the Klaus Wunderlichs LP  Wersitime 2, demonstrating the Wersi Helios organ.  They were originally for the Helios range and as such have two extra drawbars [4/5 and 1.2/3 pitches if memory serves!] so a user might have to fiddle a bit to extract the perfect sound. This is in fact the big secret of the crisp drawbar sounds from that range.
