The first version is recorded with the microphone setting with the minus 10% that the company suggested to prevent overload. Unfortunately it also cuts off the very frequencies that gives the True Tone the life it has. I am afraid knowing how particular I am about sound that I should have known from the start but figured it was the reduction made by You Tube. Now I may have to redo many of the better records so the true sound comes though. To my ear its a much fuller and richer sound.

First Version of Moonlight on the Ganges on the MIdmer Losh Pipe Organ:

Second version with improved microphone setting.

Yup, the second clip makes the first sound like a concertina by comparison!

I like the first clip, because the frequency range is more even.

The second clip however if what the record sounds like in person where as the first does not, what ever that means. Edison was able to put out some powerful sound on that organ. Same goes for the other records I have recorded in the past few days, the sound is vibrant in comparison. As I mentioned I knew that the sound coming from the videos wasn't the room filling experience that the records had heard live. I stupidly wrote it off as condensation of the You tube process and the ability of the camera, but in reality it was the setting effecting it.
