Keyboard Controller Idea

Pat Azzarello

Recommended Posts

So, I'm a little surprised that Fatar/Studiologic (or someone else) hasn't decided to make a "Hammond" controller keyboard. With the number of organ modules out there (and the frequency that new ones crop up) I would think there would be a market for a controller keyboard with:

  • Waterfall keys
  • Hammond Style Drawbars
  • A few programable switches
  • Pitch/Mod wheels
  • One or two manuals

Anybody else think this is a good idea? I'd rather buy a controller and pick the module that I want (and swap/upgrade later) than put out the $1800+ for an all in one unit that probably will be updated in a year anyway.


Am I the only one who thinks this is good idea?

Actually, Alan's not that far off base...


The point being that the actual sound generating electronics don't cost that much to add. If someone's gonna design a keyboard with all of the hardware (switches, drawbars, etc) already on it, they may as well toss an engine into it for a few dollars more so that can aim it at a wider target market.

Unfortunately the OB3 and OB3-2 keyboards transmit sys-ex when you move the drawbars, not standard controller numbers, so this limits there functionality as controllers. :(
