1677 Michel Carboni Organ

Specification

Organ temperament:
Equal temperament at a1=440 Hz unfortunately probably sice 19th century
The virtual organ was therefore set back to mean tone temperament!

Manual compass:
F, G, A - g2, a2

Pedal compass:
C - d
c - d  repeated from lower octave
Pedal fixed coupled to manual

Note:
The Carboni organ sound is based on Principale 16'  (historically named:  Principale 12', beginning at F)
but the  F, G, A keys are not present on modern organ compasses. Therefore organist Fabio Mancini defined a historically renamed  and reorganized version (stop names based on Principale 12', voce umana based on P12) playable in modern organ manual compass (beginning at C)

The Terzo Mano octave coupler was probably added in 18th or 19th century

Available organ definition files:
Carboni-P12-Meantone:
Modern adapted manual compass
(C- g2, a2).
NOTE:  Historically renamed stops, Voce umana compass shifted one octave (adapted to most ancient Italian organ music). Reduced manual compass beginning with Principale 12‘ at C (usual modern organ console compass), thus F-B are not playable!!

Carboni-P12b-Meantone:
Original manual compass (
F, G, A - g2, a2).
NOTE: Complete original manual compass shifted one octave to be able to play all notes on modern organ consoles (F - a2), but one octave higher than usual!
