The Hungarian Homebuilt Hauptwerk Organ was born!
It has two manuals, a parallel concave BDO pedalboard
and 44 stopswitches (12 to ped, 16 to HW, 16 to SW).
There are 8 switches for couplers (P+I, P+II, I+II, octave
and suboctave and pleno). The switches send "note ON-OFF"
signals by "LPT to MIDI" from Francesco Pasetto.
For manuals I used two Fatar TMK 61's keyboards and
encoders in wooden consol. For crescendo and swell pedals
I used Fatar's Modulation Wheel potmeters, it works fine.
The pedalboard is home made from oak according BDO, with
30 tone. For contacts I used microswitches, the encoder is
mpc40x from J. Petkov. The MIDI signals are going to soundcard's
MIDI In across a Quadramerge box from MIDI Solution.
The PC is placed in the consol, it's a Pentium IV, 2,6MHz with
2GB Ram and 160GB SATA Winchester, running Winwows XP32.
Soundcard is EMU 1212m. For audio I use two homebuilt Quad
405 stereo amplifiers, the speakers are Jamo and JBL and a Koda
active subwoofer. In my room it's enough.
I have only studio edition, therefore I haven't MIDI Out signals to
controll stopswitches, if I use combinations. Hence I use a touch-
screen monitor too.
