Midi-equipped console for Hauptwerk - ready to go?
I'm considering purchasing a Galanti Praeludium II for our church to replace my hand-MIDIfied Hauptwerk console (it's been chugging along for a decade, but time for a more reliable upgrade).
The Galanti instrument in question has some sound problems, but as I would only be using it with HW, I have a couple of questions:
- first, if the console has separate MIDI channels for each console and pedalboard, and has separate MIDI In/Out, is it plug-and-play with HW? I've seen a couple references to HW "conversions" for these instruments, but I can't figure what would need converting.
- second, possibly more importantly, if there are motherboard (or whatever) issues causing the current sound generation quirks, would those problems interfere with generating MIDI data as well? I don't know nearly enough about how these digital organs accomplish the respective tasks of creating a MIDI on/off and triggering digital sounds.
Thanks very much!
