Scots II Pipe Organ Samples is a symphonic virtual pipe organ chromatically sampled stop-by-stop from The Scots’ Church Melbourne, Australia. The organ was built by Rieger in 1999 and is one of the finest instruments of the continent. Due to its wooden structures the church has relatively dry acoustics providing a crisp and articulate high-definition pipe sound. The instrument has 64 stops on 4 manuals with two consoles and organ cases. Tomaš Močnik Builder

The MIDI interface that we ’ve found to be most reliable (resilient against lost MIDI messages and resulting ‘stuck notes’ in times of extreme CPU load ) is the MOTU Microlite, which we recommend for best performance and reliability, especially if you plan to use large/complex sample sets or if you plan to perform in public.

Re: need advice on MIDI ENCODER for pedalboard
        Postby GrahamH » Wed Jan 14, 2015 5:40 am
        Hi Fernando
        I didn't realise that Midiboutique still make the mkc64x
        encoder. Actually, it was an earlier model of this encoder that I used
        for the pedalboard of my Mark 2 console. It works very well, but you
        need to arrange the reed switches in a 4 x 8 matrix and add diodes. This
        may seem a bit complicated at first, but once you have done it, you will
        always choose to do it that way.
        The point made by Nick is a good one. If you have made other arrangements
        for MIDI-fying your expression pedals, then an encoder like the mkc64x
        works very well. But if you need an encoder that will also handle your
        expression pedals you might consider the products from Roman Sowa
        In my most recent 3-manual console, I use the Midiboutique hwce-2x encoder
        and it has my highest recommendation for convenience and compactness.
        Of course, the most economical way is to make your own encoder circuits
        - if you have the know-how - but I don't think that solution offers the
        neatness of the hwce-2x.
        Best wishes

To Pipeloops
        I am working on a plan to build a console installation for the Pipeloops
        Oberlinger Bonn-Beuel organ on the Hauptwerk virtial pipe organ software.
        The console will hold:
        * windows computer running Hauptwerk VPO
        * 3 midi keyboards for the 3 manuals.
        * touchscreens for the draw knobs.
        * Custom built MIDI pedalboard and foot controls.
        Are 3 touchscreens (left, center, right) supported for draw knobs?
        What foot controls are supported (toe studs, shoes) in addition to the
        What resources can you recommend for information on the St. Joseph organ
        Can you refer me to other customers that have done a similar

        > Regarding foot controls:
        > These are not specifically included in the GUI. The real organ duplicates
        > all toe studs with drawknobs as well, e.g. couplers, appel anches,
        > etc. So you would just link the toe-studs you are planning to use to

        I would appreciate getting your pictures of the foot controls.
        I will continue to study Hauptwerk consoles and general organ controls
        leading up to designing a pedalboard and foot control assembly. My
        wife is the organist and I plan to run a trial software install for
        her to try and then plan out a full 3 manual installation with licensed
        Craig H. Anderson
Thoughts on foot controls for Pipeloops Oberlinger Bonn-Beuel organ
        My wife is an organist and for at least 20 years I have wanted to
        acquire a home practice organ for her.  After learning of the Hauptwerks
        VPO system, I have decided that I will piece together a Hauptwerks
        console/system for her.  The organ that interests me is the Pipeloops
        Oberlinger Bonn-Beuel organ.  My plan for the upper console is 2 touch
        screens and 3 MIDI keyboards.  I would like to build the lower console
        * 32 key pedalboard (Shop built AGO style)
        * swell shoe (Yamaha FC7 or shop built)
        * crescendo shoe (Yamaha FC7 or shop built)
        * 23 toe levers (shop built)
        * lights for 3 of the toe levers (shop built?)
        What MIDI controller(s) should I look at for all the foot controls?
        I would like some guidance on options for the 23 toe levers.  Currently I
        would like to mimic the toe levers and their placement in the Bonn-Beuel
