Robert Knight (Robert Knight Organ Company) advises on 26 April 2010 that the Casavant organ was installed tonally pretty much "as is".  Nothing  has been added at this point.  The console has been prepared for a few  additions, a Tuba, Vox Humana, and 32' Principal pedal unit, 32'  Bombarde extension, and a few more pedal borrows were added.  We refurbished the console and installed a modern relay, combination action, and coupler system.  

The main changes to the organ were in the layout, which formally was in a tall, narrow chamber, and now is in a wide, low chamber.  This necessitated considerable structural and mechanical changes to the organ on-site.  We also raised the wind pressure slightly to compensate somewhat for the much larger concert hall space - the original wind pressure was quite low.

The Casavant is currently playable and in use, however it is still  awaiting a thorough final tonal finishing, as well as a number of final mechanical adjustments and refinements, to be considered "finished".
