    YAY!!! I'm always learning new things here. Thanks for testing this out for us and keeping us posted.

    Way too many organs to list, but I do have 4 Allens:
    • MOS-2 Model 505-B / ADC-4300-DK / ADC-5400 / ADC-6000 (Symphony)
    • Lowrey Heritage (DSO-1)
    • 9 Pump Organs, 1 Pipe Organ & 4 Pianos

That was actually a nice change. Made possible, for example, a Festival Trumpet that did not couple. More like the way MIDI stops work.
    Didn't know the Alterables would couple to another division. Then again, I don't use them. Something to play with, thanks John.My 1105 has 10 Alterables. 4 Swell, 4 Great, 2 Choir

    Yes. Alterables DO couple on MOS organs. They do NOT couple on ADC, MADC, or MDS organs.

    On ADC, MADC, and MDS the alterables tend to be floating on 2 manual organs--i.e., independent couplers to the swell, great, and pedal; on 3 manual organs they tend to have a "home" division on the Swell, with no separate coupler, with separate couplers to the great, choir, and pedal--i.e., they don't couple with the "swell to great", etc., but there are separate "alterable to great" etc. couplers. Usually (but there may be an exception) there is no "Swell Alterable Unison Off" option on the 3-manual organs.

    On the MDS models with separate ancillary divisions (reeds or percussion) such as the MDS-55, the alterables couple with the ancillary division.
