Text Box: 1. PREPARE RIBBON CABLE AS SHOWN ON PAGE 4. WHEN STRIPPING WIRES BE CAREFUL NOT TO CUT ANY OF THE WIRE STRANDS. STRIP BETWEEN 1/8” AND 1/16”. THEN TIN WITH SOLDER AFTER TWISTING THE STRANDS TOGETHER. (TINNING IS HEATING THE TWISTED STRANDS WITH A 30 TO 60 WATT SOLDERING IRON AND APPLYING A SMALL AMOUNT OF SOLDER SO THAT THE STRAND SPACES ARE FILLED WITH SOLDER.)
2. PLUG THE HARNESS INTO THE BACK OF THE MIDI BOARD AS SHOWN ON PAGE 3.
3. UNPLUG THE NECESSARY MIDI CHANNEL JUMPERS AS SHOWN ON THE BOARD “MIDI CHANNEL JUMPER CODE” TO SELECT WHICH MIDI CHANNEL YOU DESIRE PER DIVISION. IF USING SEPARATE MIDI SOUND GENERATORS FOR EACH DIVISION THEN YOU MAY AS WELL LEAVE ALL THE JUMPERS INSTALLED FOR CHANNEL 1. IF USING HAUPTWERK tm OR AN ALHBORN GALANTI ARCHIVE MODULE tm FOR EXAMPLE YOU WILL NEED TO SELECT THE CHANNELS THAT YOU SET UP IN THESE PRODUCTS. ALSO YOU WILL NEED EITHER A MIDI MERGER OR MIDI HUB TO COMBINE THE MIDI OUTPUT SIGNALS. WE WILL HAVE SUCH A DEVICE SHORTLY. NOTE THAT IF JUMPERS ARE CHANGED WHILE POWERED UP, THE MIDI CHANNEL WILL NOT CHANGE UNTIL THE ORGAN IS POWERED DOWN AND RE-STARTED.
4. BEING VERY CAREFUL TO DISCHARGE ANY STATIC, REMOVE THE KEYBOARD ARRAY BOARD CONNECTORS FROM THE SIDE AND THE MOUNTING SCREWS. REMOVE THE ARRAY BOARD BY CAREFULLY UNPLUGGING IT FROM THE MOTHER BOARD.
5. USING THE PICTURES ON PAGE 5 AND 6 FOR STANDARD ARRAY BOARDS, SOLDER THE PREPARED HARNESS TO THE ARRAY BOARD. THIS BOARD IS COATED WITH A THIN COAT OF VARNISH SO APPLY SUFFICIENT HEAT TO ALLOW GOOD TINNING OF THE SOLDER LOCATIONS BEFORE SOLDERING THE WIRES TO THE BOARD. BE CAREFUL NOT TO LEAVE ANY SOLDER BALLS ON THE BOARD AND CHECK FOR SHORTED CONNECTIONS. FOR OTHER VERSIONS OF THE ARRAY BOARD, REFER TO LATER PAGES THAT WILL BE ADDED TO THIS INSTRUCTION BOOKLET AS NEEDED.
6. PLUG THE ARRAY BOARD BACK INTO THE MOTHER BOARD AND USING SUPPLIED SPACERS AND SCREWS MOUNT THE MIDI BOARD ON TOP OF THE ARRAY BOARD. IN THE OTHER MOUNTING LOCATIONS USE THE ALLEN SCREWS. PLUG THE SIDE CONNECTORS BACK IN.
7. THE MIDI EXPAND JUMPERS SHOULD BE INSTALLED WHEN USING OUR MIDI EXPANDER FOR USE OF MULTIPLE MIDI DEVICES ON THE SAME CHANNEL. USING OUR MIDI EXPANDER BOX WITH 4 MIDI PARALLELED OUTPUTS. IF YOU DAISY CHAIN (ONE TIME ALLOWED) YOU CAN DRIVE UP TO 8 ADDITIONAL MIDI DEVICES. THE AUDIO OUTPUTS FOR EACH MIDI DEVICE CAN BE SWITCHED USING ORGAN STOPS. FOR COMPLETE MIDI IMPLEMENTATION FOR ORGANS YOU MAY WISH TO PURCHASE “THE HANDBOOK OF ORGAN AUDIO” BY STAN HARRISON WHEN IT BECOMES AVAILABLE.
