The Connoisseur Palladium

October 2012

Since I met Owen Jones I have had many great experiences in the VTPO world. His expertise amazes me and his enthusiasm is boundless.

Owen first converted my Conn652 to enable it to run Neil Jensen's Connoisseur ranks a couple of years ago and I have been wanting to have a completely digital organ ever since. The 652 performed very well but I had so much hanging off the back of it that it was a bit of a nightmare.

 

I had some good luck middle of 2012 when I heard that there was a Conn653 (not working) available for sale and I made an offer to the owners and they accepted.

It had not been used for many years and was in a bit of a sorry state but everything I needed was on it so I had it delivered.

Owen journeyed to my place in Dakabin Queensland and worked frantically for two weeks to strip the console in readiness for the refit.

Owen ordered Artisan equipment for the re fit and it has been incredible to me that so much output comes through just a hand full of boards.

Owen stripped every length of wire from the console and then used a lot of it again in the re fit, which saved a lot of dollars not having to buy it again. I still have a box as big as a tea chest nearly full of wire that will have to be disposed of some time.

Owen asked me what I wanted in the final specification and I told him I wanted the Conn tab rail re designated to suit the Connoisseur 3/19 specification. I wanted him to choose voices for the tabs to make it a fabulous organ if it was only being played from the tab rail.

The touch screen was available to add or subtract voices at will while playing from the tab rail. This gave me a great organ that anybody could sit down and play from the tab rail if they were too timid to use the touch screen.

The next thing I wanted was to use all 12 channels on the Echo Audiofire12 instead of the 10 that I used on the Conn652. I have two sets of Conn 146 left and right pipes, and one set of Conn 145 pipes and Owen has connected these in the channel arrangement. The strings are diverted through these pipes and sound terrific (in my opinion anyway).

I bought two more Behringer Truth 2031A speakers and these have improved my sound system a lot.

I always wanted toe pistons on my organ and have them at last. Ian and Glenda Kubler had bought some from Classic Organ Works at a very good price and sold six of them to me for my Palladium. These are used for crash cymbal, gong, train, siren, bell tree, and birds. I may change a couple of these to general registrations yet.

 

The Conn653 has plenty of pistons and Owen used every one of them to my advantage.

I now have general and divisional pistons and have the advantage also of the touch screen to subtract or add voices to the piston selection.

I am still using the same computer that I used on the Conn652 but have added another 8Gigs of ram to make it more dependable.

Before Owen arrived I had a computer techie upgrade the computer from 32 bit to Windows home premium 64bit technology.

The computer runs Windows7 Home Premium because touch screens will not interface with anything less than that.

My sincere thanks to Owen Jones and his brilliance for setting me up with my dream instrument.
