Hi, I have just acquired a stripped out rodgers organ + pedalboard which I would like to use for an organ midification project. I have been roaming this forum for about a month, trying to collect the information and wanted to ask if you could give me some advice and make me aware of caveats which I hadn't considered yet. The organ consists of: 2 x 61 key manuals: each in 4*16 diode matrix pedalboard: 2*16 diode matrix 43 stop tabs (SAMS) 31 piston switches 1 swell pedal I think I will need: Control module: LPC17 + LPCxpresso Manuals + pedalboard: DIO matrix board stop tabs + piston switches: 3 * DIN Module SAMS action: 3 * DOUT module (switching to the on state uses one channel, switching to the off state uses another: 2 * 43 channels, are the line drivers rated for enough current?) swell pedal/Pot: should be accomodated by core module Does this look about right? Does one core module support all this. What latency/conversion times would I have to expect. Re latency I read about the midibox kb project which is in development but I'm not sure if this is simply a firmware update or also different hardware or if it is applicable at all to what I want to do. I was thinking of using the manuals in a 16*16 matrix. With both manuals and pedalboard I am at the moment 10*16 but I want the option of extending by a manual in the future and I assume that it is not easily possible to scan in numbers which are not powers of two anyway. I wonder if you could also give me an indication of how much programming I would likely face (something I'm not worried about). In particular the SAMS might be tricky in that I need to control the two lines per channel via one midi signal. On an off-on trigger edge the on coil would need to get engaged for 100-200ms and on an on-off edge the off-coil. Does anyone have experience how easy it is to configure midi out in Hauptwerk anyway ... might be lost cause after all. I would really appreciate your feedback. thanks a lot!
