Can you point me in the direction of info = on the soundcards you use? I'm looking at the soundfont route to produce = organ sounds for practice/recording.   I may also be interested in MIDI interfacing with a pipe organ at some = point in the future.   Thanks in anticipation   Every Blessing   Tony ----- Original Message ----- From: "Dave Milton" <dmilton@igs.net> To: "Residence Organ List" <DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org> Sent: Wednesday, July 17, 2002 1:51 PM Subject: [Residence Organs] Re: DIYAPASON-L Digest #600 - 07/15/02     | Re Midi question - I'm doing something very nearly the same.

(back) Subject: MIDI Controler From: "Mickey Sadler" <msadler@zeus.netset.com> Date: Thu, 18 Jul 2002 09:37:56 -0400   Hi All,   Check out http://www.ucapps.de/index.html for some neat DIY MIDI controller information. The most interesting one to me is the MIDIO 128 which has the ability to input and output up to 128 notes. The hardware schematics and board layout and the software are free. The article at http://mmd.foxtail.com/Tech/mvdReijden.html was where I first got the information on Thorsten Klose's MIDI controller web site.   Laater,   Mickey -- Mickey E. Sadler Dublin, Ohio

We have a 1972 Klann console with combination action and self = contained switching for 42 or 43 speaking stops. Everything was working when the console was disconnected = but the combination action needs some work. The C/A works fine, but you can only set it by = going inside the console and manually adjusting the trippers to get the desired combinations.   The console and a small Resiner relay that I somehow obtained are = available now. We want the space back!! THEY ARE FREE ITEMS!   2. We have a recent Miedenger blower, small, good for a house organ as it = can run on 110 or 220v that I had planned to use as a booster blower, but we made some = adjustments in the wind distribution system and now I find we don't need it. We purchased this = item from an organ builder who had never installed it in any instrument permanently, but it has had = some use. We paid $1000.00 for it, and that is several thousand less than a new one. I would = like the church to recover their expenditure for that item, but let's talk. I am willing to = trade the blower for pipes that might be added.       =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D Randy Terry, Director of Music & Organist Mona Dena, Choir Director The Episcopal Church of St. Peter 178 Clinton Street Redwood City, California www.stpetersrwc.org   __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?

I have blower that will do 5 = to 6 rks of pipes and would be happy to trade it for pipes or magnets. The = stop I'm really looking for is a raucous old farty Clarinet down to CC. Do you have such a thing spare? Or an old Mixture? I don't ned flutes or strings. My spare blower is about 0.25 hp and is in good order.
