Orghammograms even further improved

Orghammograms are keeping me busy. As the content of The Hammond Jazz Inventory grows (right now we have the details of about 200 Hammond jazz recordings) so do the orghammograms. For example, the last time I recomputed the level 4 orghammogram for John Scofield it took almost an hour to create the 3562 x 3029 pixel graphic. (Actually it takes about 5 minutes, but I do it 10 times and then pick the smallest result). Not only does the time to compute orghammograms increase, also the computer screen size needed to look at them grows. 3652 x 3029 pixels is equivalent to 37 x 31 inches or 94 x 80 centimeters. A new way of looking at orghammograms was needed.

A detail

As of today you can look at orghammograms in a new panning mode. You can switch to that mode by clicking on the Panning button while viewing an orghammogram. In panning mode the orghammogram is shown in a fixed sized area and by dragging the orghammogram with the mouse you can travel through it. To explain how it works I also created a help screen which is also accessible from the orghammogram menu. I hope you like this new feature.
