Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ has only 6 electronic voices. Three of these are the percussions (chimes, harp 8', harp 4'). There are three prepared-for gallery divisions for future expansion. The organ also has two portable consoles that may be plugged-in to various locations around the worship center, and which control certain divisions.
