French - Français / Conversion d'une banque Hauptwerk vers GranOrgue
« Last post by avoirten on 13. December 2017, 23:47:44 »
Bonsoir. Possédant la banque de son de St Michel en Thiérache qui tourne sur Hauptwerk, existerait-il une possibilité pour utiliser cet instrument avec GrandOrgue?

unfortunately could not be restored.

 I really like the software grand orgue, however I have always find it hard to make the sound fit to my room. I was thinking of buying the dry version of the laurentzkerk sample set on sonus paradisi, make an appropriate odf file, and use jack to add external convolution reverb adapted to the output channels and the circumtances.

 But because those samples are so expensive, I was wondering if it was worth it to do so, and if it was even possible to achieve good result for this.

 I mean, in theory, if we have a very good impulsion response of a church, it should be possible to get a real sounding reverb using convolution.

 Also, how hard and time consuming it is to make an odf for grandorgue ?

 Also for those who own it I would like your opinion on the laurentskerk samples, I am trying to get a very complete set capable of sounding both very baroque and very french (even if actually I play only baroque)

 Thank you very much 1

The MPS GrandOrgue Forum was down for about 3 days.
After an update of the forum software to SMF 2.0.14 the forum didn't load. It showed, that the needed PHP-version is actually 5.4 and not 5.3 as promised by the update-requirements.
After updating the server software, now we have the needed PHP version and so the forum now is online again.

Sorry for the interruption.

Your computer should do the same as any expander: Receive MIDI events from the organ MIDI out and send the audio signal to any kind of speakers.

In your case, connect organ MIDI out to MIDI in of your PC and PC midi out to the organ audio in. If the audio in is intented for an expander, it should mix the external audio signal with the organ sound.

Has the organ an audio input? You need to connect the laptop audio output to the speakers.

The organ does have stereo RCA audio inputs, but that would just be using the organ as a big amplifier for the external speakers.  What I want to do is combine stops from GrandOrgue with stops on the organ using the MIDI on Swell, MIDI on Great, and MIDI on Pedal stops.  The alternative is trying to convince those in charge to buy the Allen MDS Expander II or some other similar product.

Try downloading the nightly developer build of MuseScore.  If you open the Mixer, you can assign a MIDI channel to each instrument.  I tried it, but still can't seem to get the channels right.  Maybe we'll have to wait for them to finalize MuseScore 3?

Somewhere else I saw Midiocre recommended.

English / GrandOrgue with MIDI to Swell/Great/Pedal stops on Allen MDS-6
« Last post by grantwsmith on 03. November 2017, 15:18:33 »
Our church has an Allen MDS-6 organ with stops for MIDI on Great, MIDI on Swell, and MIDI on Pedal.  I connected the organ to my laptop and I can successfully use the keyboards and pedals on the Allen organ to play my virtual organ in GrandOrgue - using the laptop's speakers.  What I really want to do is play the stops I select in GrandOrgue over the Allen organ's speakers.  Is this something GrandOrgue is able to do?

The Allen MDS-6 has four MIDI ports, In, Out 1, Out 2, and Thru.  Out 2 is switched - you have to put down the MIDI to Great/Swell/Pedal stops.  The manual, on page 13, says, "Under normal circumstances, MIDI sound modules should be connected to the switched MIDI port labeled MIDI OUT 2...  Devices such as MIDI sequencers should be connected to the unswitched MIDI port labeled MIDI OUT 1..."

https://www.allenorgan.com/www/support/ownersmanuals/MDS-6OwnersManual.pdf

In Midi & Audio Settings, on the MIDI Devices tab, I check the box for mio 1 in the MIDI Output Devices box.

On the Audio/Midi menu, I went to Midi Objects.  For the Swell, Great, and Pedal, I went to the Send tab and set Device to mio 1, Events to 9x Note, and the channels to 1, 2, and 3 (to match the channels listed in the Allen manual.)

With the cables, I've tried various combinations of Out 1, Out 2, and In on the Allen organ to In and Out on the laptop.  I can always get GrandOrgue to recognize the manuals and pedals on the Allen organ, but I never get the MIDI on Swell/Great/Pedal stops to play anything from GrandOrgue.

So is there some quirk to getting this to work?  Or am I trying to do something that can't be done?
