Following is a discussion of individual stops and how they are generally used. Please note that slight variation in specifications may be encountered,

Bourdon 16' Stopped flute tone of weight and solidity.
Lieblichgedackt 16'
(Swell expression) Softer stopped flute of delicacy and definitions. Useful where a soft 1' pitch is required.
Octave 8' 8' member of the Pedal principal chorus.
Gedacktflote 8' Stopped flute tone of 8' pitch, useful in adding clarity to a pedal line in combination with the Bourdon 16' or Lieblichgedackt 16'.
Choralbass 4' Pedal 4' principal tone.
Posaune 16'
(Swell Expression) A strong Pedal reed that lends strength and "snarl" to the Pedal line.
Great to Pedal Connects all Great stops to the Pedal.
Swell to Pedal Connects all Swell stops to the Pedal.
Midi to pedal Opens MIDI channel to the Pedal. (Optional board must be added to implement MIDI.

Gedackt 8' Stopped flute tone of moderate harmonic development. Provides the 8' member of the Swell flute chorus and is useful by itself or with other flutes and mutations in creating solo voices.
Viola 8' Soft string tone.
Viola Celeste 8' String tone, slightly detuned, used with the Viola 8' to create a warm string celeste.

Celestes are created by using two sounds, one tuned slightly sharp or flat of the other, creating a warm, undulating, "Celestial"effect. The combination of the Viola 8' and Viola Celeste 8' will create beautiful celeste sounds.
Spitzprinzipal 4' Hybrid stop which is predominantly principal tone with a string-like edge.
Kippelflote 4' Distinctive stopped flute voice that works well in ensembles of flutes or strings, or as a solo voice.
Nasat 2-2/3' Flute mutation that sounds one octave and a fifth above the keys played. Always used with other stops (usually beginning with 8') for coloration.
Blockflote 2' A delicate, clear open flute at 2' pitch.
Terz 1-3/5' Flute mutation that causes the pitch to sound a seventeenth (two octaves and a third high than played. Used with 8' stops or flute ensembles.
Fournitue IV Compound stop, or mixture, comprised of principal tones. Each note played produces four distinct pitches at octave and fifth relationships to the key being pressed. The Fourniture IV should never be used without stop of lower pitches and is typically added to diapason or flute ensembles, or to a reed chorus.

Bassoon 16' Chorus reed tone at the 16' pitch level, designed to supplement the other chorus reeds. Also usable as a distinctive solo reed.
Trompette 8' Chorus reed stop of rich harmonic development. Can also be used a solo voice.
MIDI on Swell Opens MIDI channel to the Swell.

Diapason 8' Foundation stop of the Great principal chorus.
Rohrflote 8' Full-bodied, partially stopped flute tone.
Octave 4' The 4' member of the Great principal chorus, which consists of the Diapason 8', Octabe 4', and Superoctave 2'.
Spitzflote 4' Partially stopped flute tone.
Superoctave 2' An open metal stop that produces foundation tone at the 2' pitch level.
Mixture IV A compound stop of principal tones. Four notes in octave and fifth relationships sound together when a single key is depressed. As pitches progress upward, the "break" back to the next lower octabe of fifth. Used to cap the Great principal chorus, adding brilliance and pitch definition throughout the entire compass.
Chimes Typical Tubular Chimes
Swell to Great Intermanual coupler connecting all Swell stops to the Great manual.
MIDI on Great Opens MIDI channel to Great.

Tremulant Use of this stop provides a vibrato effect, natural in the human voice and wind instruments, when used with the stops for the Swell or Great Divisions.
Bass Coupler When this coupler is used, the lowest note played on the Great manual will automatically key the appropriate Pedal note, playing those stops that have been drawn in the Pedal division as well as those in the Great division.
Memory B When used, this piston button allows access to five general combinations that are completely independent of those on the "A" memory.

EXPRESSION PEDAL The AP-2 features one expression pedal. It expresses the Swell, Great, and Pedal divisions.
