First of all congratulations with your new Consol(e)o! And thanks for the nice words and comments.

I only want to add one small correction: The Consolo is completely designed by me as a professional software engineer and former employer of Content. But Peter has invented the nice name!

Best regards,

perhaps i'm the bad guy, but think it is a lot of money.
For the same price, or less you can buy a full functional digital organ WITH almost the same midi posibilities. Only have to ask the manufacturar for the schedule, (mostly given without diffulculties)

The big plus with a digital organ is when your computer fails, you still be able to use the instrument.

When you look around on the market for used instruments the prices are thousends below this offer.

Hi All.

I am currently dealing with Peter Voitz at www.sakralorgelwelt.de and I have to say that he is very helpful and responsive to my questions about the Consolo product. For me, living in the UK, a non-technical person, this ready to go console seems the ideal way to get quickly into the Hauptwerk world.

Yes it is expensive, but no more than the Classic MIDI works set up from Canada by the time import duties and carriage are paid to the UK and of course it is a proper console, BUT the touch screens of Classic MIDI are a consideration!

So if like me you are non-technical and dont feel like getting your hands dirty by midifying an old console and want something of quality that will work almost(!) out of the box, plug and play as they say, try Peter at sakralorgelwelt.

Just to let you know I have no connection with the company, just my honest opinion.

Hans, it's not really relevant to compare second-hand, MIDI-fied organ consoles which may be in any state of repair and condition, with brand-new top quality gear.

A better comparison would be to something such as Classic MIDI Works, which now are represented in Europe and the UK. They currently offer a package which includes three manuals, pedals, bench, and music stand (at GBP 6495). It does not include swell shoes or touch screens. If you add the cost of three swell shoes (at GBP 380) and two cheap touch screens (at USD 150 per unit), you arrive at a total cost of 6875 GBP, which approximately is €9050.

The Consolo 372 is €6550, roughly 2/3 of that price. Quite significant.

Also, some markets require a traditional console look, which of course is a big plus for the Consolo series.

My apologies for an omission on the English pages of www.midi-organs.eu. The price of £6495 *does* include two swell shoes. The German page is correct.

Touchscreens at the equivalent of USD150 each?! Where, please?

Douglas.
