The Keykit environnement cannot work with several output ports = open at the same time. Did you success working on more than 16 channels ?   Patrick Brusorio

I'm shure, that your work will be very helpful for any "not historic" organists. I'm Titular of St.Ulrici Lutheran Church in Barunschweig and people of Gaston Litaize and Jean Gillou. I'm very interested to test your work and maybe, to translate the manual into german. Also i make a little advise about your work in a magazine for = computerorgans (OKEY!). Please let me know more about your work.

It is a =   graphical interface, but it works well and needs no programming. I don't = know "C", and therefore I can't use Keykit.   A demo of the program is available on the Aureality website.   Building Blocks is very versatile, and it's a lot of fun to use. So far it =   has been capable of anything I have wanted it to do. And tons more = besides. It still has a few small bugs, but these are being fixed very responsibly = by the program's creator, Mr. Paul Swennenhuis.   Special note to Patrick Brusorio;   You can have as many output ports as you like with Building Blocks. And as =   many input ports as you like.   I know this sounds like a blatant commercial, but I like the program very much and recommend it highly. It costs about $60.00   Mick Berg.
