    No I didn't mistype. Here's the rear panel of the MR-200: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/86...page=14#manual Now, I used existing cables that were coming from inside the organ to MR-200. I unplugged MIDI cables from MR-200 and connected them to Fastlane MIDI interface like this:

    It worked just fine. Organ MIDI signal is recorded and played back flawlessly.

    I will post better pictures as soon as the whole configuration is permanently set.

    The existing FDD sits snugly in the MR-200. I'm wondering if there is a safe way in removing it from the front side.
    On the other hand, we already have a laptop and a MOTU Fastlane USB interface which has two MIDI connectors pairs - A (in-out) and B (in-out). The MR-200 is connected to the organ via "MIDI out A" and "MIDI in" , but it also engages third connector "MIDI out B" that goes to sound module. Would that make sense if I connect the organ to one Fastlane connectors pair (i.e. A in and A out) and the sound module to the "B in" Fastlane connector?

    Hello, Organ forum members,

    I'm a newbie here. The church I work for has Rodgers Trillium T927 organ equipped with Rodgers MR-200 sequencer. What happens if I disconnect the MR-200 and replace it with MIDI interface, connected to a laptop? Can it be used as upgraded (storage-wise) sequencer? I tried to find some relevant information, but had no success so far.

    Thanks!
