Wurlitzer Band Organ e-Roll Archive

This is an archive of Wurlitzer Band Organ Music Rolls in e-Roll format. It does not contain any music which is immediately playable on a standard midi player.

All of these e-Rolls are constant tempo with webbing removed which makes them ideal for producing playable music using nothing more than a filter, a standard midi editor and a lot of time and knowledge.

If you plan to make the music sound like a band organ then the following filters and information are essential.

  1. Filters Filter package, includes filters fw125e-p.rpl and fw150e-p.rpl
  2. How to use midi to Play Wurlitzer Band Organ Music Rolls Detailed information.
  3. 1929 Wurlitzer Band Organ Catalog Details of organs and pipes.
  4. Summary table, 1929 Wurlitzer Band Organ Catalog Summary for comparing organs and pipes.
  5. Wurlitzer 125 Tracker Bar Technical Details.
  6. Wurlitzer 150 Tracker Bar Technical Details.
  7. Midi Specification Standard Midi File Format. Appendices are useful.

** Since I have so far been unable to obtain the .CIS files for rolls marked ** I have restored them from available material. Unfortunately most of the controls have been lost but Wurlitzer controls are fairly predictable and given time could be restored even without the .CIS files.
The other rolls have all the original controls.

Style 165

None available, but w150 e-rolls can be converted to play on suitably equipped w165 organs using the filter package above.
