Plans for MIDI-controlled Busker Organ

Todd,  Contact John Smith and ask for the 26-note Universal with the
supplement for Topsy.  It's a crank organ with MIDI added.  Also check
out  Peter Hood now has his plans available for the
Hood organ and it is a MIDI operated organ and sounds like a very nice
organ.  It's a 45/65 I think.

Hope this is enough to get you started.  Feel free to email me and
I will try to answer all I can but I am also learning about MIDI and
what a ride it is going to be!
