Kinkennon Services

 We are now selling MIDI boards at:    Northwest MIDI




Kinkennon MIDI encoders are designed for retrofitting older organ consoles for use with virtual pipe organ software such as Hauptwek, Miditzer, and JOrgan. The C programming code is freely available to modify or to use as is.

The encoders are based on the UBW32 development board which utilizes a Microchip PIC32 MCU. This is the red board in the photo. There are connections for three manuals, a pedalboard, eight expression pedals or other potentiometers, an LCD display, and a relay to control audio amplifier power. Two additional I2C ports interface with optional I/O boards which typically connect up to 64 pistons and 96 stops.
