Setup photos

After playing the piano for a few decades, I got hooked on the organ after playing Hauptwerk on my Yamaha KX-88.

Without any real organ playing experience, I built my own console to AGO standards with pedals and manuals taken from two discarded Moller consoles. I added magnetic reed switches to all pedals and keys, then wired and coded 5 Arduino 2560 boards to turn switch actions into MIDI messages. My console is now 4 manuals and I am making custom toe pistons (new pics soon). I have two touch screens to select stops. I run 4 channel surround with large tower speakers and an 18" subwoofer.
