Covid Quarantine Organ Building Challenge - A 40 year old organ console goes digital!



Published
A couple of years ago I got hold of an organ console for £5 from Ebay.
I had intended to convert it into a MIDI controller to run the pipe organ we are going to build.
Testing positive for Covid gave me the ideal excuse to spend a few days locked away in the workshop to make it happen!

I used the original key beds, contacts and wiring, and built a custom encoder out of a pile of shift registers.

It is now able to be used, not only to control a pipe organ, but also to play around with virtual organ software.

All music featured on this video was performed and recorded using the organ.
