Just wanted to give everyone a quick update on this project, as it is still very much a live and well.

Funding is underway and we are on a great path to having the entire project fully funded. Of course, as expected, this is the area that is a bit of a waiting game as all of the "committees" get all of the financial logistics worked out.

We very quickly reached 50% of our fundraising merely through generous private individuals. Now we are going to host a few fundraising events, concerts, programs, etc. and should hopefully have this thing paid for 100% free and clear very soon - debt free!

In the meantime, if anyone is interested in getting involved and has any interest in supporting the project, you can visit http://www.greenwoodumcmusic.org/Donate.html to make a donation. (Not sure if this is against forum rules or not.... if so, I will take it down). If you happen to be in the Indianapolis area, let me know and I will try to keep you updated on upcoming events as they become available.

I will hopefully get around to adding a Hauptwerk Organ Blog on that site to track progress. New works are being written/arranged for the premier concert and dedication service as well.

Still trying to narrow down some sample sets. The new SP Casavant would be very welcome in that space, I think.

So very excited for what is to come!

Thank you, all!

Update:

The project is - for all intents and purposes - fully funded! We had our first fundraiser last weekend but we already had 90% of the funds raised by that point entirely from individual contributions! I love this congregation. I love working WITH them. They are a terrific group of folks!

I have begun the process of finalizing the design/engineering of the audio system and other components. A fully-detailed AutoCAD drawing of the entire schematic - from key switching all the way to speaker output - is being done by one of the draftsmen that I work with.

I mocked up a basic 3D rendering of the audio system and the inside of the sanctuary. Pictures can be found here: http://greenwoodumcmusic.org/Hauptwerk_Organ.html

Hopefully within the next couple of months all the equipment will start showing up.

QUESTION ABOUT MACS AND TOUCHSCREENS
I have been debating whether or not to get a rebuilt MAC from iBuildMacs.com or just build a new Windows PC. The nail in the coffin for MAC is that I am having trouble finding suitable touchscreens that are guaranteed to work. Does anyone have any experience in this area?

Thank you!

UPDATES:

I have moved away from my GoDaddy server space so all of the previous images in this forum thread will no longer appear. However, much of everything is still documented on the new site at:

https://www.greenwoodumcmusic.org/hauptwerk-organ

The console is nearing completion. The MINI LCDs and HWCE2X setup from MGB is being installed.

I found some beautiful LCD bezels that fit nicely! Check out the pictures in the above link.

The computer is also built.

Audio components are all en-route. I think I overwhelmed our Behringer supplier because they are still trying to fill the order but they should be on their way soon.

Things are looking great!
