New items to mention
The Small-Midi has undergone some minor changes. The Midi output
is now better buffered, so it also can control a USB adapter
cable properly The power supply is also firmer. The software has
remained the same. The descriptions and other data of the
precursors can be found in the archive.
Kit or built and tested.
There is much interest in the GINO-MIDI Interface and
accessories. For many it is still an appeal to mount the print
itself and soldering.
Therefore, it is now possible to present you the various
circuits, assembled and tested to order.
In addition you will find a picture of a fully assembled set of
Small Midi interface decoder prints for two keyboards, pedal and
stop panel ......
Matrix decoder circuit.
Now also available is a PCB for a matrix of 64 (or fewer) key
contacts or stop switches containing already a decoder circuit.
It is a simple circuit which can be coupled directly to the
GINO-BUS and can read the keystrokes. The key contacts or stop
switches are connected via a 16 pin ribbon cable and connector
and the clock signals with a 10 pin ribbon cable and connector
(8 is enough but there are no small IDC connectors)
Now also printed circuit boards
for the key contacts.
This item is not available anymore.
As you see I'm busy to take more PCB's in line. For the
key contacts and the accompanying matrix PCB's are now
available. The digital world makes it very easy to let make
PCB's. The quality is excellent and it also simplifies the
building of the projects described on this website.
The BIGMIDI into two parts:
The BIGMIDI may very well function without the LCD and switch
print. Only one can not set all parameters to match your needs.
For the one that will not hold you because you're able to set
the different variables in the software of the virtual organ,
such as Hauptwerk, GrandOrgue, jOrgan, etc. Another has it may
be a need for.
Now printed circuit boards available:
project was initially presented as a real “Do It Yourself” project.
This meant that one had to expose, etch and drill the print themselves.
This was for many an obstacle
.Therefore I decided to make PCB’s for the various circuits.They are
very professional PCB’s made by EUROCIRCUITS.
At the moment the
website, the manuals and building descriptions will be adjusted.
