Computerizing classical pipe organs opens a new domain of interests, in which modern technology meets the traditional way of playing such instruments. The application of a microprocessor system to an organ may significantly improve many of the control and display functions of the console. Computer control of the pipe organ also enables a new approach to the problem of existing musical articulation limitations in a pipe instrument with an electromagnetic action. This kind of pipe organ control is characterized by the promptness in the pipe response, as the air flow cannot be controlled otherwise than by the rapid opening and equally fast closing of the valve. In the opinion of organists, this deprives them of the possibility to interpret music according to their wishes.
