    Another new South African

    Hello to all ,

    I'm a friend of Victor (who's also new today) - he kindly sent me a link to a neat topic on this forum, so I've joined as well. I'm interested in guitars, pianos, keyboards, and organs. Having great fun at the moment with some Virtual Pipe Organ software and MIDI keyboards.
    I'm in the middle of rewiring an old Hammond with MIDI capability and putting a computer within the console to run jOrgan. I've learnt alot, and had some fun along the way... and hopefully tonight I'll get to play it for the first time (through headphones).

    Looking forward to reading and interacting with other musically minded people around the world.

    Kind regards

    Hi GrahamG

    Welcome to Magle International Music Forums.

    Sounds like a very ambitious project you have taken on with your Hammond.
    Are you then using Midi along with the tone wheel generation system?

    Please let us know how your first playing session went.
