    I do have quite a love for organs also thanks for sharing. Project looks great. I myself have a wurlitzer organ. Love them they're great.

    Good for you Vidar, my second wife was a pro and I could listen for hours. Wonderful and complete instrument.
    Do not let your musical talent get rusted.
    BTW: I have a little device which allows Ipod stereo music in the headset (shutting off as soon as ATC comes on the freq.) and listeneing to Bach above the lid is a great joy.
    (talking real flight here)

    Take care

    Re: pipe organ playing pilots?

    It was to my amazement when I found the Hauptwerk.com site and the marvelous pipe organ sounds that are available.

    My father was a pipe organ builder/voicer, so my whole life up to the time I left home was completely submerged in the pipe organ world. Besides my family, my first love is the pipe organ and all the fabulous music that goes along with it. I've never mastered playing the pipe organ, but have a tremendous appreciation and respect for a top notch organist and I've had the opportunity to befriend some famous organist. My favorite, Virgil Fox (long time ago).

    My father had his own organ factory in Rotterdam, Netherlands and his organs are still working in several churches throughout Holland. Enough of that....

    What I found fascinating, when I discovered Hauptwerk. Hauptwerk family (like the Flight Sim Family) has similarities as in fight simulation builder hobby. First of all the Hauptwerk software is actually similar to MSFS software, but rather then using offsets it uses MIDI channels and various settings that can be used to control your virtual organ consoles.

    Imagine setting up a 12 channel audio system, some virtual organ builders have done this and including a duplicate workable organ console.

    Well enough of this again, this is a flight simulation site, LOL. Just wanted to ad to what Vidar started and the Flight Simulation community does not have the ownership of eccentric virtual builders

    Re: pipe organ playing pilots?

    well, my first hobby is playing organs, and indeed a couple of months ago I started building a 4 manual 'Hauptwerk' organ myself.

    I just finished the pedalboard, bought some quality keyboards (from Johannus/Netherlands), midi-controller board, couple of touch screens.
    I had already some speakers and amplifier, and I'm very impressed of the Hauptwerk software.

    So, now back to my B777 project!
    Regards,

    Henk.

    Nice going Henk

    I just bought a Pedal and Bench on Ebay. The pedal is MIDI ready, not sure what that means, if I have to interface with a controller board it or not. But the price was more then right.

    I too plan on building a 4 manual 'Hauptwerk' organ, with touch screens.

    I'm quite impressed with the Hauptwerk Enthusiast have accomplished, truly amazing.

    We obviously share more than the first name, Vidar.

    I used to play pipe organ in my teens, and have actually been looking at your site and the Hauptwerk product for a while. Maybe I'll follow up on that one day!

    And my 737NG cockpit is coming along too.
