• Welcome to the Pipe Organ Forum! This is a part of the open community Magle International Music Forums focused on pipe organs (also known as "church organs"), organists, organ music and related topics.

    This forum is intended to be a friendly place where technically advanced organists and beginners (or even non-organists) can feel comfortable having discussions and asking questions. We learn by reading and asking questions, and it is hoped that the beginners (or non-organists) will feel free to ask even the simplest questions, and that the more advanced organists will patiently answer these questions. On the other hand, we encourage complex, technical discussions of technique, music, organ-building, etc. The opinions and observations of a diverse group of people from around the world should prove to be interesting and stimulating to all of us.

    As pipe organ discussions can sometimes become lively, it should be pointed out that this is an open forum. Statements made here are the opinion of the poster, and not necessarily that of the forum itself, its administrator, or its moderators.

    In order to post a new topic - or reply to existing ones - you may join and become a member by clicking on Register New User.

We strive to make this a friendly and informative forum for anyone interested in pipe organs and organ music.

Grandorgue "misinterpreting" keyboards


New member
Hello ! I'm fairly new to GrandOrgue, so I have a problem.

When I try to use MIDI keyboards with the default sample-set on my pc, it doesn't work. Instead, it opens the "messages" window and says for example :
"19/09/2021 13:26:03: 13:26:03: Avertissement :Evénement MIDI:note canal: 1 note: 55 valeur: 117" (French GrandOrgue, yes.)
instead of interpreting it as input. I am using a Dell G3, GO v0.3.1.2330, and an Acorn Masterkey 61 keyboard. It is set as the input for both manuals, and as the only MIDI interface.

When I try it with other sample sets, it activates the note, like if the mouse pressed it, but when the key is released.

I have tried turning off/on, un/reinstalling, updating...

However, it works on my father's PC (Acer Aspire E17) wonderfully, and from the first try.
What is wrong here ?

I must add that we have another keyboard, an AKAI LPK25 and that the same problems also apply, so it's not the keyboard's fault.

Ight, solved it, just didn't set it up properly actually. Set up the whole thing from the menu, and not from right clicking the manual itself.
You've been real helpful :)
