It looks lovely. I know nothing, but I'll jump in anyway and say...Arduino. I'd suggest reinventing this as a simple MIDI controller with a ton of switches.

I'm begining to think that it would be easier to just use plug-ins

Reminds me, I really want a phonofiddle. But what the heck is the guy out of shot playing? A bass balalaika?

We're roughly on a par there :lol:
I do think there will be a more modern way to get use out of it as a (slightly OTT) controller, that doesn't necessitate the use of the enormous old PC that currently runs it.
Porting the organ software bit over to a VST would be quite nice as well, but I'm a long way off that at present. Most of the time it's not even connected up due to space constraints.
I'm sure I'll get it finished, when I've got a day or two with a few hundred hours spare :crazy: :D

I believe that one is a contra-bass balalaika (the largest size) but I'll check with my son who is my resident balalaika SME.

You're spot on. A friend of mine plays one of these and he brings it along to the session from time to time. He doesn't use gloves though. (When you walk past his house you can see it hanging on a wall looking very impressive).

FWIW, There is a guy who has implemented a full-fat B3, both keyboards, stepped drawbars, including pedalboard and leslie using an Arduino mega and a laptop running Yoshimi :)

The biggest bass I ever did see was at the Cite de la Musique museum, Paris - an octobass
(well worth a visit if your in that area)

Imagine having to carry that back home with you on the tube/metro.

Be useful in floods, though (topical, eh?).

A bunch of Midi Encoders and some simple wiring to read the keyboards/pedals and stop switches, and feed that into almost any old laptop running Hauptwerk. An hour or so configuring the MIDI mapping in Hauptwerk and job done. It will be much more flexible and sound much better...

Typical MIDI encoder sets for a complete console here, but there are other suppliers too...
