Just getting started with the community and came up with an idea for a project, that I would like to persue. Our church has an organ that I got to see being installed, and was ammused when the two computer boxes that were inside the case, behind the keyboards, had the classic scrolling Linux startup messages. Fast forward to today when my new RPi is just itching to be put to good use. Our church organ also has a MIDI in and MIDI out line set, and I got to read a bit of the instruction manual, and found with some clever programming, I believe it is possible to have a "player" pipe organ.
We are a small struggling church that cannot afford to pay a full time organist, so having a means of having a pushbutton solution would really do the trick. Does anyone have a simple (breadboard type) schematic for an RPi to MIDI 5pin DIN. Preferably using the GPIO and not the USB
Thank you in advance for all your help,
