  • Connecting Hauptwerk Software to Rodgers Organ

    I have a Rodgers Trillium 837 and would like to hook up my Hauptwerk software to the organ. How would I go about doing this?  Any recommendations?  I have full MIDI capabilities on the organ.  I am also using a MacBook.

    Should be relatively straightforward on this model. The only additional hardware you'll need is a USB MIDI adaptor (I use a Roland UM-2ex) to connect the organ to the MacBook. Right offhand I can't positively remember all the MIDI output channel assignments on the 837, but I think it's 1 - Great, 2 - Swell, and 3 - Pedal. The expression is also sent via the the standard MIDI volume messages. Stop and piston changes are sent via Rodgers-specific SYSEX messages, though, so you'd need to use a MIDI data capture program to analyze and map the messages to Hauptwerk functions. I use a freebie from www.snoize.com.

    If no one else on the forum can fill in the blanks, you should be able to get the 837 MIDI implementation details from your dealer or Rodgers. There's also the Rodgers Organ User's Group; sign up at www.frogmusic.com.</p>

      MIDI-Ox (free download) will tell you exactly what MIDI messages are being sent and on which channel. That should help for starters.

        Midi-OX is a fine program, but it's Windows only. Since he's using a MacBook (presumably without a Windows VM), I recommended what's essentially the Mac OS X equivalent.</p>
