The Phoenix system capabilities are enormous - a single system will cater for up to six keyboards and pedals, 256 pistons, and 256 ranks. Departments do not necessarily need key inputs. Also when applied to a cinema organ , this covers only three departments with double-touch.

  Up to 16 mixture stops can be put anywhere, with up to 10 ranks in each stop, as long as the maximum departmental stops and ranks boundaries are not exceeded.

*There is some duplication of audio channels, particularly where the Choir Solo Fifth and Sixth are concerned

*These couplers are not available separately, but the Solo Oct & Sub always couple through.
If Sw or Ch Oct to Gt is present, then none of the Sw or Ch Oct or Sub couplers act through.

 

Pistons

The Piston System can be conveniently divided into two separate and autonomous parts

PART 1 Standard Pistons - these have 8 independant memory levels
16 Adjustable Pistons to operate on stops assigned to Group 1 (normally General)
16 Adjustable Pistons to operate on stops assigned to Group 2 (normally Pedal)
16 Adjustable Pistons to operate on stops assigned to Group 3 (normally Great)
16 Adjustable Pistons to operate on stops assigned to Group 4 (normally Swell)
16 Adjustable Pistons to operate on stops assigned to Group 5 (normally Choir)
16 Adjustable Pistons to operate on stops assigned to Group 6 (normally Solo)
16 Adjustable Pistons to operate on stops assigned to Group 7 (normally Fifth)
8 Adjustable Pistons to operate on stops assigned to Group 8 (normally Sixth)
8 Adjustable Pistons to operate on stops assigned to Group 9 (any set of stops eg doubles)
8 Adjustable Pistons to operate on stops assigned to Group 10 (any set of stops eg reeds)
5 Reverb Time Switch inputs
8 Transpose -3/+3 & Auto Pedal Switch inputs
8 Pistons specifically for the left-hand toe pistons which can be set to either Gen 1-8 or Sw 1-8
32 Reversible Pistons each of which can be programmed to reverse any stop on the organ

Temperament, Memory and Spec can also be controlled via individual switches or rotary knob

Volume, Tuning, Transpose and Reverb can also be controlled by knob

PART 2 Sequencer Controlled Pistons with 99 independant memory levels

  • 16 Adjustable Pistons under Sequencer Control

  • Up to 8 NEXT / FORWARD and 8 REVERSE / BACK standard pistons can be mapped to the sequencer

  • Sequencer ON/OFF and Page Up/Down controls - no individual page locking

  • The Sequencer Pistons can be used as conventional generals, giving the flexibility of separate memory level control for departmental and general pistons (really handy from a player's point of view)
