When I first played Myst that puzzle totally killed me. I had to use a tape recorder to complete it. Nowadays, after a bit of mandatory ear training courses at college , I can allign all of the sliders after hearing only a single reference pitch from the organ. But really though, you shouldn't need to train for adventure games.

Also, does anybody know if the organ sounds the same in RealMyst? As I recall, the organ tone was kind of lame in the original myst.

Gameplay? This is path of the shell here. It was made to look pretty and sound nice. Gameplay was sort of an afterthought.
