Without a wiring diagram one is only guessing. From what you are saying I'll bet they need to be jumped together correctly for the proper voltage. Also I'm surprised that there was not smoke coming out of= the motor before tripping the 30A breaker. That is alot of power for one minute= or so especially at 220.   Eric             At 10:35 AM 11/17/01 -0500, you wrote:=20 > > The blower is rotating in the correct direction.

It is a hybrid of different MIDI keyboards and a pedalboard connected with fishing line (!). I know more about playing organs than I do on how they actually work, but I want to learn. Anyway, I want to add a rank or two of pipes, that would use the MIDI interface. I have two questions for the list:   - What parts would I need to accomplish this.   and   -Where is a good place to get this kind of stuff?   Thanks!

W. Electronics. It may be observed and read about at http://www.j-omega.co.uk   Somebody mentioned this jobber on one of the lists a few weeks ago and I went to the site to look at what they have. If I recall, they have two sizes, - one about 20 outputs and the other about 64.   I think it mught be just exactly what you are looking for.   John     Paul Soulek wrote: > > I have had an electronic organ at home for some time. > It is a hybrid of different MIDI keyboards and a > pedalboard connected with fishing line (!). > I know more about playing organs than I do on how they > actually work, but I want to learn.

There are a gazillion different kinds of windchests out there and they all have different possibilities/requirements for controlling via MIDI.   You can find 'stuff' at http://barton.theatreorgans.com/adsearch.asp and also http://www.keyboardtrader.com also such stuff occassionally pops up on eBay but you really need to know what you are looking at because the seller usually doesn't (ymmv). It might also be useful to find someone locally (or not) that can show you how he/she did things.   Do you have a friendly local pipe organ builder? They can sometimes be helpful as well. I know mine is!   ---john.
