  1. Mickey, question: I set up bank 25 on my soundcard for the theater organ sound fonts as recommended. To check them out, I loaded the audioHQ software, using the keyboard, located the bank 25 to check out the sounds of the different ranks. All seem to sound ok, however the tibia ranks all sound more like a drumbeat on a particular pitch, rather then the typical sound of a tibia pipe. Any suggestions why? I have the same soundfonts in two parts in banks 22 and 23, and the tibia plays ok there. Thanks, John
  2. Mickey, I downloaded the midister software to try it out. The display looks good. The soundfonts are the same as for Jorgan, however, it doesn't appear to be configurable. Don't see any setup to assign the keyboards, pedalboards or stops. Did I miss something? John
  3. Felix, Sorry I didn't respond to your comments. No, I have not gotten that far into the Mios stuff. My core and I/O modules are on order and I will get into it after assembling all of the parts and pieces. Would like to exchange ideas more later, especially on the pipe drive end. I still don't understand all the ins and outs of the different instructions. John
  4. Hey Mickey, Just noticed something, on the file pull down in jOrgan, one of the selections is import. It allows you to import soundfonts and one of the inputs requested is bank. on another issue, when I open JOrgan, and pick open, none of the disposition files are listed. I loaded them in the same menu with docs, the jOrgan folder, and others. when I change the bottom selection from dispositions to all files, they come up. I suspect that I did not put them in the correct folder. Should the disposition files be in the subfolder called dispositions, that folder is in the jOrgan folder which is
  5. Thorsten, Idon't understand the id code bit for the pic. I have decided to use two cores, the first to be programmed with midio128, with 4 din (need all 128 dins), the second core will be midi064, with 64 dins, 32 for pedal on the organ the rest for stops. I plan to hook the midi064 to the MIDI in port on the midio128, and enable the merger function, and connect the midio128 to the pc. So with this configuration, what ID code do you recommend? I don't plan to use a LCD. Thanks, John
  6. Mickey, Thanks for the input. Didn't know that there were so many programs available. I am particularly interested in jorgan. Looks like an extremely versitile program. It looks like you can play any of the soundfont files from any one of the console programs. In other words. could you plan the cinema soundfonts with jorgan? I want to run two keyboards, pedal board and stop switches from my moller console. looks like jorgan when interfaced with midio128 could facilitate that. any suggestions? In the text of the websites, the name uses the comment to "put the files in Bank XX" i.e. 25, 46.
  7. Hello Robin, I am tracking an SC88 and a SC55 which are supposed to work, both at a good price. I don't mind putting out a little money, but my ultimate goal is to add conventional pipe ranks all, operating on MIDI. I would eventually like to supplement the pipes with additional electronic ranks either with Hauptwerk or SCPOP or some other software. Peterson has some electronic add on modules, but are probably expensive. Have you built and progammed your core modules yet. How difficult was it to edit the .INI files for the unit? Literature from midibox sources does not give rise to extreme
  8. Robin, Thanks for the info. Do you have a source for sound canvas modules, the SC88 or similar. Without that or similar, SCPOP is not a good solution for me. That is unless you know some way around it. Otherwise, Hauptwerk or similar software is my solution. Are you familiar with the XG/XS convertion software. I followed a thread of links and read about such a program. You can find the link on the SCPOP website. Is this a solution for the non SC! Regards John
  9. Scuzzle, So I could assign pins 1-64 to the Great keyboard, 65-128 to the Swell keyboard on core no. 1, assigning the channel number "1" to the first 64 , and "2" to the second 64. I would then have to add a second core for the pedal board which only has 32 pedals, plus 10-20 stop switches (on-off switches). All this with the midiio128 core. On the output side. eventually I will add actual pipes to the organ which would be in ranks of 64. at this point possibly 5 ranks. Could I daisey chain digital outs to the midiio128 or would I have to add additional cores to cover the 5X64 pipes? Opera
  10. This is great. Getting some good stuff> The Hauptwerk software is configured to accept note input on channel 1 from the pedal, 32 keys; input on channel 2 from the great manual, 64 keys; and input on channel 3 from the swell manual, 64 keys. Thats 160 key inputs. As I understand it one core can be programmed to transmit only one channel at a time, so you would need three cores just for the keyboards, each on its preprogrammed channel. If I use the IO128, all key actiion would come in on one channel and the software can't distinguish between middle c on the great from middle c on the swell
  11. Hey Scuzzle, Thanks for the info. As I understand it then, I need a midi64 core for each keyboard, each operating on a different channel. I understand a little more about the pic programming, but have much to learn. Correct me if I am wrong, but, the basic code for operation of the core is already done. By editing the .ini file, I can download it to the PIC to customize the program to do what I need done, YES? Thanks
  12. Hello! I am a new commer to the forum and am looking for help. I am beginning conversion of a Moller pipe organ console to midi with the intent of using the organ keyboards and pedal board with Hauptwerk organ imulation software running on my pc. I can see application for the DIN modules and Core, but don't understand how to set each keyboard up on a different midi channel. Any help would be appreciated. Also, any help in the overall conversion process would be appreciated. Thanks
