I've gravitated toward some interesting combinations of pipe organ and synthesizer sound over the last several years. In this time, I've developed a lot of my own ideas (who hasn't?!), with a combination of conscious philosophy and pragmatism (i.e., sometimes I couldn't afford what I really might want!).
Here's my current setup in Milwaukee at home, with homebrew MIDI pedalboard details
Around November 2001, I was organist/choir director at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church here in Milwaukee. Here are some adventures and misadventures with their decent small Wicks organ enhanced with a Peterson MIDI Resource System and Allen sound module:
Details of Beautiful Savior's setup
From my years as Director of Music at Church of the Annunciation, Minneapolis (1987-1998)...

What am I looking for in synths?
Past and current synths
Programs with synth and organ
A little leaflet for parishioners at Annunciation, Minneapolis, about the organ, synthesizers, and their use in contemporary Catholic worship
RealAudio sound clips (synth and organ)
Synthesizer patches for the Ensoniq MR-61 (and others in the MR/ZR line)
RealAudio sound clips (including some from Annunciation)

Do you have complementary, or contradictory, ideas in this area? Let me know -- I will probably add a link, even if I don't agree with everything you say :-) ...John Seboldt, Milwaukee, WI
