We want to hack an old electric organ so it can be used as a modern instrument.

The idea is to use MiDi files as input and let the organ play some music. Thereby it will also be nice if the organ can be played manually.



  • Midi input
  • Cleaning
  • Repair 'Windmill'
  • Repair drumbox

Midi input

First step is key actuation

  • Servo (turned out te be the best solution)
  • Solenoid (not enough strength to pull the key's down)
  • Electromagnet (not enough strength to pull the key's down)

Currently trying to put two servo's next to each other and be able to control two keys automaticaly.
