Yesterday we announced the signing of a contract for a new gallery organ at The Church of the Covenant in Cleveland, Ohio. More information will be available in the future as we work with the church and Dana Kirkegaard.
Monday, August 2 Bruce and Patrick Fischer begin the voicing of the 3 prepared stops, all reeds, in our Opus 10 in Boston. It is going be fun to hear the organ finally completed with all 7 reeds!
Work continues on putting sound samples on the site. I hope to have the first clips online in time for the publication of the September, 2010 issue of The Diapason that has an article about the organ at Transfiguration Episcopal in Dallas, Texas. I have also dropped all support for Internet Explorer 6. There are several GOOD browsers for free—Safari, Firefox, and Chrome.
A final note, and this time it is Apple's fault: the Windows Quicktime player version 7.6.6 (current) doesn't work. At all. Period. BIG problem.

The holidays are always a good time to work on the website as there are few people here at the shop. The slideshows now work on the iPhone thanks to code from iShowPro that works with SlideShowPro. In addition I'm doing lots of code cleanup and have replaced major portions of the individual pages with php code. In 2010 I hope to replace lots of the information on each individual organ with php and sql code. Fun fun!
