Pianocorder MC-2 MIDI Converter
By Bob Baker

Dear Robbie:  We still continue to manufacture the MC-2 MIDI Converter
which makes any Pianocorder system MIDI compatible.  Since taking over
its manufacture from the inventor, Piano Automation, Inc., we have
built over 60 of these MC-2s.  It can also be used with the P-200
Vorsetzer Reproducer for a keytop MIDI player system when the MC-2
is used with any suitable MIDI source.

Regarding Dave Brown's offering in the MMD of 000125, this is, in fact,
the record option for a Pianocorder system.  I have installed more than
a dozen of these record options and I can assure you that they do not
get confused when more than a few notes are played.  When they are
properly regulated, you can, in fact, obtain three different levels of
discernible expression:  soft, medium and loud.

We still offer all of the parts for the Pianocorder System, including
installation manuals, refurbished cassette tape decks and owners
manuals, as well as cassette catalogs.

On an unrelated subject, thanks to the generosity of Tom Meijer, the
Editor of "Het Pierement" of the Netherlands KDV, I have been poring
over the past three years of "Het Pierement."  With the help of a
Dutch/English dictionary and a decent Dutch primer, one can, with a
little perseverance, get an immense amount of information from this
exceedingly well-written publication.

Also, thanks to Tom Meijer's generosity, two of his superb original
articles on Th. Mortier and his firm will hopefully be published in
English in the coming months.  For aficionados of street organs, cafe
and dance organs, fair organs and their restorers, "Het Pierement" is
a must-read!
