Let's take a look at the drawbar parameters of the EVB3. The drawbars create our organ tone, so we have nine upper drawbars for our upper keyboard, and we also have nine lower drawbars for our lower keyboard, and we have two for the foot pedals. So our drawbars flow from left to right. The left one is the lowest frequency and the right is the highest. I'll go ahead and play a note, and I'll pull down one of these drawbars, and we (music playing) hear sound is fading in. It's kind of like a reverse volume fader, in that when I pull it down, the volume increases; when I push it up, it decreases.

So let's bring in some of these other harmonics. (music playing) You can see the pitch increases from left to right, although this second drawbar here is actually a fifth higher than the third. (music playing) So when I pull those down one at a time, it almost sounds more like a chord than just the timbre of the sound. But check this out. If I play a couple notes, it doesn't real...
