The Instructional Videos offered on our site provide excellent opportunities to learn more about Allen’s MIDI product VISTA. VISTA creates a dynamic environment for the organist to supplement the tonal resources of the organ and to engage the myriad General MIDI sounds available.

Vista opens new performance horizons, whether you want the flexibility to create the sound of an orchestra, play piano and organ duets from the same console, or access sounds that are perfect to lead contemporary worship.Vista’s multiple MIDI ports provide quick and easy control of several sound sources, simultaneously. Each port is independently assignable to any organ piston for ultimate flexibility. Vista’s Compact Flash Memory provides convenient storage for hundreds of sequences, organ capture files, as well as Vista setting files. Easily transportable, Vista’s memory card can also be connected to a PC for advanced file management or downloading of sequences/files from other sources.

Carlo Curley explains the various sounds of the organ and how to access them to achieve the best results. If you are an organist and would like a refresher, then watch this video. If you are a pianist and all of a sudden faced with having to play the organ for the first time, this video will help provide some familiarity. Then… move on to the next series of videos... A Church Organist’s Primer. This is a “nuts and bolts” approach to discovering everything a church organist might have to do from day one. If after viewing this video you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. As a church organist, performer and teacher I will do my best to help you. Take your time and view as many of the videos on this site as you can. Try to listen to all the organ music offered at various places through the site. All of this will give you a fresh insight into the world of the organ in all its glory, from Baroque, Contemporary to Theatre.
