The Solina String Ensemble version of organDonor offers the following features:
- Fully polyphonic midi input for all 49 Notes
- Optional independent control of the 20 “Bass notes”
- Optional learn button to set midi channel.
The installation is relatively simple, but does require basic soldering skills. You will need to drill a hole for the midi socket.
Installation instructions can be found in this PDF.
Setting midi channel and keyboard offset
If the optional learn button is installed, it can be used to quickly change the midi receive channel of organDonor.
Connect midi out of a computer or keyboard to midi in of organDonor. Make sure not to send any notes.
Press the learn button and while it is pressed send a midi note on any midi channel. organDonor will set this note as the lowest note of the synthesizer and use its midi channel. These settings are saved.
By default the “normal” notes are playing on midi channel 1 and the “bass” notes on midi channel 2. Setting the “normal” midi channel to channel 2 as well (using the learn button), will result in the original behaviour – as if playing on the keyboard.
Instead of using the learn button, the midi channels can also be configured via the configurator (see below).
Send midi notes on the configured midi channel (see above)
Alternatively you may configure a lot of parameters using our organDonor configurator.
We recommend using the Solina String Ensemble config file as starting point
1.) Save the file on your hard drive via right click -> save as
2.) in the configurator press “Load configuration” and select the file
