OrganDonor

Midi interface for Organs, String Machines and Polyphonic Synthesizers

Description | Machines and manuals | Configurator | Order online

Introduction

OrganDonor is a universal midi interface for electronic organs, string machines and polyphonic synthesizers. It can be used to midify machines where other approaches fail. OrganDonor uses analogue switches to directly simulate keyboard presses. A large voltage range of up to +-20V allows interfacing even the most vintage machines.
In addition, parameters such as filter cutoff, glide or preset selection switches can often be interfaced as well.
The modular approach lets you add as many analogue switches as needed. This allows even large polyphonic synthesizers or organs with several manuals to be interfaced.

Customization

We offer OrganDonor as customized versions for particular synthesizers. We are working on expanding the portfolio and creating more installation manuals. Contact us if your synth is not on the list yet, or if you want OrganDonor installed in your synth by us.

Additionally, the behaviour of OrganDonor is fully customizable via the OrganDonor configurator. This is a browser based tool that allows you to create midi assignments to analogue switches, digital outputs, PWM outputs and CV/Gate output (special OrganDonor version needed for CV-out).
