Organ controller using Fatar bits and pieces

Fantastic job - that page was just what I was looking for :D


I've got as far as making a base and a support for the upper manual. My weapons are a Nord Electro 61 for upper manual and a cheapo Fatar 161 for the bottom.


Cheapo is the word. Whilst the keyboard itself is great, the plastic casing is a disgrace! It flexes and it is held together by self tapping screws into plastic - some of which were broken. If you press the top of the case, the keys depress too :confused: Disgusting


I use the top of the Fatar to support the Electro so this is a problem. I have taken the Fatar apart and added wooden bracing inside to eliminate the bounce. It's ok now, but I hate the cheap case so much that I'm thinking of throwing it away and just using the keys, rather like you did.

hang out with me at woody piano shack

Well, I've already hit my quota of red instruments for 2005 and I still need to save room for the STAGE that I'm sure I'll order in some drunken evening of GAS-induced motivation. Heck, if I can have some bourbon and type up posts that I cannot remember the next day, then why not do something like order new gear and then just act surprised when it arrives! :D That could be my new ploy with the wife - "Honey, I honestly have NO IDEA what that large box on the back porch is. I cannot remember ordering anything. Maybe one of those places finally sent me some free gear?" :D:P

Actually, this one is pretty cool as well.
