Greetings, I am an American organist who bought an Eminent Omegan 9000 from a church three years ago. It played for awhile but had some annoying dropouts of pedal notes. While trying to reseat all the circuit boards I somehow made the organ unplayable.
Three American organ techs have looked at the instrument but none have any clue as to what is wrong, or how to fix it. It had always been in the back of my mind to make a VPO one day, and some time ago I decided to use the Eminent as the donor console.
Once again I have run into a wall as none of the companies or individuals I am acquainted with who do console conversions understand how the Eminent keyboards are matrixed or how the stop controls and pistons are matrixed. They cannot make the Eminent keyboards or stops work with their MIDI encoders.
I have invested a lot of time and money into moving this console to Oregon, and to abandon it now would cause serious marital difficulties. As it is, everyday that the Eminent sits in the living-room silent and brooding... ... anyone who could offer help and/or insight would be helping to save a marriage as well as put one more VPO into existence. A worthy undertaking don't you think? But there is no pressure . Thanks in advance.
