What kind of connectors do I use for my MCU
On p.80 of the manual it tells you the size/spacing of the pins you you can determine the connector.
Switches Pins, 0.025" Square, 0.3" long, 0.1" pitch. Fused at 250mA
This is the info you need for parts people. The reason there is not a specific connector named is because it all depends on what size of wire you are running to the connector. Different size/guage of wire = different connector. Each manufacturer has a different part number and an exclusive tool that works with that connector as well.
Main manufacturers for these connectors are:
- Molex (Waldom) crimp-type connectors
- Mas-Con (Panduit) IDC connectors
Find out what gauge of wire you are planning to run to the connector. Then you can take the wire gauge and the pin size/spacing to a parts store or help line to find 8-pin connectors.
Do you sell any pedalboards other than the AGO type
At present, we do not sell anything other than the AGO. However...
If you can find the pedalboard you want (ebay, or second hand somewhere) we CAN help you MIDI-fy it.
- If you can find one with magnets on the keys you can use our Pedalboard MIDI kit.
- If it has electrical switches (i.e. +12v contact rail) you can use our MKSC1a parallel scanner board.
- If it is matrix wired you can use our MKSC4a scanner board.
Do you build pipe organs?
No we do not but we do work closely with many pipe-organ builders which are found under the 'partner companies' heading of the FAQ section. If you need a pipe-organ builder to do some work for you but do not know who to call, you can contact us. We will refer you to someone in your area who will assist you.
Do I need to purchase your control systems to use your products?
Our MIDI products are completely stand-alone and can be used with General MIDI devices, Ahlborn Archive modules, the Viscount CM-100, and PC-based voice generating software such as Hauptwerk.
We have a number of products for pipe chamber and console which can be used with other systems and are not limited to Classic control systems. See our Products|Console Hardware page.
