organ pedal into a midi

Jon posted Oct 22, 23:30:

I got a free old organ and took out the pedals. I want to make it into a pedal syth. with something like sampler box. So I can play my bass guitar and have my feet play string intro.
Any great ideas?
Best regards Jon

You'd essentially be building and programming your own MIDI controller. I'm sure there are heaps of ways to go about it, but something like this might be a good starting point:

Thanks for the input. I wonder is it better to just make it a midi controller only or build in the sampler inside? I have room but I have never done anything like this.

I'd probably want to separate the two - only because you'll be stomping on it and maybe spilling beers on it if you're on stage ;) but then again it would be a neat little package if you could combine them!

I was actually looking into options for boxes and welded steel wouldn't actually be a bad choice. To create a kind of stompbox style thing.
