  • adding midi to a Rodgers 900B

    All of you have given good advice to me concerning my Rodgers 900B. I need your expertise again! Question- is it possible to wire a 1985 Rodgers 900B for midi on all three manuals and on pedal? And also, if it is possible, is it feasable? Would the expense be out of a poor organist budget? I love my 900, it is in perfect condition, but I would like to add some strings etc.. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated! Thanks---Klause

    It is possible to do it!</P>


    You need MIDI-interfaces which are available from either Inter-Midi or Syndyne.</P>


    These will connect up to your your synthesise, keyboard, computer or sound modules.</P>

      Check these folks out. They were very responsive to my email questions about midifying my organ.

      They actually have the midi boards for each keyboard and pedals plus premade wiring harnesses with the reed switches and magnets packaged in a bundle. I intend to use them for my project very soon. Good luck.

        I may not be of assistance, but I am looking into buying a Rodgers 900B. Is it a good organ? What is your opinion on the sound of it? Are the keys like a real pipe organ? And do the stops move on the organ? Also do you know of any sound files or any video clips of one of these? Sorry I don't have any MIDI info, but your the only person I know that has one of these. Thanks!!

          Hello, Neighbor!Remember me? (John in Greenbrier -- I'll never forgetthat wonderful dinner you and your wifecooked for mewhen I repaired your Rodgers!)Been a while since we've heard from you. Haven't been toyour part of the state in a long time, but I need to come up that way one of these days.</P>


          Hope the 900B is still doing well. Since our last visit my church has acquired an 890 -- like your 900B without the FestivalTrumpet anda few other features--and I've come to love and appreciate the MICASKO organs more than ever.</P>


          You might check my response to Brandon in another thread aboutMIDI-fying a serial-keyed Rodgers. I did onelast year(a 770) and it wasn't too hard. The guy had bought his own kit from somewhere, that tied directly to the +12 volt keying. We only did MIDI-out for the keys, didn't attempt to tie into stop controls or expression. I set it up with audio expression, as I suggested to Brandon.</P>
