German term or phrase:Spielhilfen
Again, about a church organ.
"traditionelle Materialien und kunsthandwerkliche Verarbeitung bei Verzicht auf moderne Spielhilfen bilden dabei die Grundlage". I take it that the "Spielhilfen" are some sort of devices that the organist can use to enhance or change the sound. Is there a term that covers that?

As simple as that! Thank you!

Explanation: I'm not sure whether an English term exists that covers all meanings of "Spielhilfen". "Registration aids" for example would be to narrow, as that wouldn't encompass swells (to name an example).
In this context, you'll have to make clear that "aids" doesn't relate to "traditionelle Materialien und kunsthandwerkliche Verarbeitung", so maybe: "without adding modern aids" or even "without equipping the console/organ with modern aids".
