Welte’s objective to record live organ performances – after their noted successes with piano recordings – followed as a natural consequence, and much effort was put into this by the firm in the lead-up to its full introduction around 1911. A summary of time-spans and roll-production details gives an overview of the foregoing from about the 1880s to the 1930s. Welte’s recording of organists, editing processes of the master-rolls and some problems, tricks and techniques in modern digital editing of scanned rolls are presented in this article
