Seek MIDI Files for Small Organ
By Phil Dayson
I have recently converted a small parlour organ to MIDI operation. The
organ has 54 notes and plays at 1-inch pressure on stopped flute pipes.
Does anyone have or can recommend MIDI files (classical or popular) that
may play well on this organ? I know that there are thousands of MIDI
files out there in Internet land, but very few are arranged for, or sound
well, on an organ.
To change the subject slightly, the organ was converted using the UM-1
unit from Octet Design as the relay driver. The unit was an absolute
delight to install and use. No soldering or real technical knowledge is
required. Just connect up the wires to screw terminals, plug it in and
it's in operation. The instruction manual is written in plain English and
can be understood! If anyone is thinking of a MIDI addition this is a
great little unit.
