Aeolian 116-note Player Organ Console Crescendo
By Pete Knobloch

Hi, I am adding the Crescendo pedal to my small 7-rank Aeolian organ
but don't know the sequence for the stops that Aeolian would have used
for such an organ.  The organ will be played along with a 116-note
player that I have connected to the organ.  I have noticed printing on
many of the rolls that reads "Tonal ON Gradually", which I assume means
to add stops using the Crescendo pedal.  Is this right?
