Roman Lizak on February 22, 2021:

In 2014, a three manual Allen was combined with the Möller instrument. The end result is a very well tonally balanced pipe/digital organ. All the Möller pipe work was retained.

Database Manager on April 19, 2012:

Updated through information from Stephen Schaefer. -- MIDI has been added, but not the usual organ MIDI. It is attached to a synthesized piano; the Swell pedal works in a reverse way for volume control of the synthetic piano.
In addition, there are differences between the actual stoplist of the organ and the stoplist from the factory specifications.
